Further options for shooting underwater photos
If you don’t trust a fish tank to keep your camera dry, here are some alternative solutions for taking it underwater
01 Waterproof compact camera
A waterproof compact camera such as the Nikon AW110 (£250/ $300 ) is a reasonably affordable way of shooting underwater images. The small diameter of the lens can make it tricky to position the camera for this sort of half-under, half-over water shot, though.
03 Underwater housing
These housings from firms such as Ikelite and Nauticam ensure worry-free underwater shots. Buy a model designed for your type of camera. From £1000/$1500.
04 Action camera
Many action cameras, such as the GoPro Hero3 White Edition (£200/$200), come with a waterproof housing. These cameras have an extremely wide-angle lens, which can produce striking images.
