del Sol underwater trash the dress movie

Recommended Posts

Just on the tails of our swimming with Whale Sharks, we have recently purchased an HD video camera and an underwater housing.... ok, so now I'm a videographer! HA... .not really.... but I enjoy documenting life and use my eye to put together our experiences.

 

 

Sol & I have purchased underwater housings for our pro digital camera because it is so much fun swimming in the pool, cenote, ocean...wherever... and recording footage of the fun. I actually would like to motivate all the folks on the forum to investigate purchasing an underwater housing for your own Point and shoot digital camera. They are cheap and the payoff will come instantly.

 

First, I'd like to give you advice based on the P&S camera that we have... I think its a Canon Powershot 850.

 

 

Regardless of our model, there are lots of small P&S cameras out there with underwater housings available and for super cheap. Here is a combo set for one that seems very affordable under $400 for both camera and housing in a kit.

Most camera manufacturers make an underwater housing for all models of their P&S cameras... if you already own a camera, search out to see if there is a housing to fit around your current model. You may be surprised they are all priced in the $150-200 range... well affordable for the fun imagery.

 

That said, we spent a few thousand on our housing and accessories for our camera and used them for the first time. Here is a shot Sol took of me in action in & out of the water...

 

This was our first TTD in a cenote with the camera housing plus the housing made for our video camera... so I shot some documentary footage and had some fun....

 

Here is my underwater video documentary of the session... a really cool perspective :

I bought the housing for my canon SD600. It was great! We had so much fun with it in mexico.

 

Underwater photography is my current obsession. I only wish the water in NC looked like it does in mexico.

I have an A620 I was thinking about getting a houseing for, but I plan to upgrade to the xSi. And that housing alone is more than the camera. *sigh*

 

The picture underwater looks amazing though! I would love to have pictures like that.
