DSLR Cameras

Although great images are created by the photographer and not the equipment, serious underwater photographers shoot with DSLR cameras. Some of the benefits include high quality interchangeable lenses, better sensors, and no shutter lag. DSLR’s range from entry-level to professional grade, from cropped sensors to full frame. Not all DSLR’s are supported with available underwater housings, so we strongly suggest using the housing finder before selecting a model to use underwater.
Once you do select a camera, please don’t forget to rate and review your equipment to help others in the community make more informed decisions about which models to buy.
