Chapter 6. The Ultimate Digital Photographer > SPECIALTY DIGITAL CAMERAS

SPECIALTY DIGITAL CAMERAS

Bonica Sea-Pix Underwater Camera

Put a normal digital camera underwater, and the electronics fizzle out. Even if the electronics could be protected, the case would soon implode from the pressure as you take it to greater depths. How, then, do scuba diving photographers take all those cool underwater pictures you see in magazines and such?


Underwater photography is possible thanks to specially designed underwater cameras, such as Bonica's Sea-Pix. The Sea-Pix is designed with a waterproof housing that also protects against high levels of water pressure. It also has special larger controls that are easier for a diver to operate underwater. (Just imagine twiddling the knobs and switches on a typical point-and-shoot camera while you're in the water—not bloody likely!)
