We’ve been looking at upgrading my underwater camera setup for the past two years. Phil has researched and researched. He has shown me many different options, from large professional kits to the semi-pro cameras and their associated underwater housings. But I hadn’t seen anything that would equal what I already had, until now !!
The old camera
An Olympus UZ550 with the custom Olympus underwater housing and the associated macro lens. The thing I loved about this setup was that while underwater I could add and remove the macro lens and lens clip allowing me to take macro and wide-angle photos on the one dive.
The new Camera
A Sony RX100 with a Recsea underwater housing. And I just love it. It is so much smaller with a load more features and I can still take macro and wide-angle photos on the same dive.
I wonder if we will notice an improvement in my photos?
