Underwater photography tips please
« on: May 21, 2007, 09:56:21 AM »
I have acquired a Canon S30 P&S and an original Canon underwater casing for our Coron trip in June. Any tips on how to shoot underwater?

Thanks in advance!

For macro shots, the flash will give you the correct colors.
For longer range shots, you may need a color-correction filter.

Try to keep a bucket of fresh water on the boat.  Keep the camera in the bucket after the dive.  Helps to wash off the salt.

Keep the camera clipped to your BC at all times while in the water.   ;)

Make sure the o-ring of the underwater cam does not have any particles like sand on it before you seal it. Otherwise, naku po baka mag-flood. Protect the o-ring by applying grease. Rinse with fresh water after every dive.

Don't kneel or step on the coral reefs to take pictures. But most of all, ENJOY!!!
The camera is a great invention: it makes the world stop. The pillow is even greater: it makes me not care about the world.

There's a store in Greenhills where they sell equipment for underwater photography.

Well, for underwater photography, wouldn't it be better to shoot with a travel camera like a GoPro which comes with a water proof casing? The Canon seems to be a bit risky since it's expensive!
