Long story short. I've just recently gone from a Canon Ixus 130(compact)in an Ikelite case, to a Canon 5Dmkii with Aquatica housing :0)
The conversion is daunting, and a lot more complicated the I originally thought. Partially due to my own expectations, of the standard of photographs I'm wanting to achieve with my new set up.
Then came all the new knowledge that had to take on board! Aperture, focal length, ISO, back scatter, depth of field, shutter speed,white balance, RAW etc etc etc....
With the help (and patience) from Spencer of Cameras underwater I got the best equipment I could afford.
I've bought several books to help assist my knowledge to become a better underwater photographer with my DSLR. But I can honestly say Richards book is by far the best.
What I've found from most of my other photography books I've owned, the writer is trying to impress you with their wealth of knowledge and understanding!! So they bombard you with lots of information that you find nearly impossible to understand, and are non the wiser for reading it!! Oh and the best is they always put a few amazing photographs in, but don't tell how they took them!!! Fantastic.
Why have I taken time out to right this then about Richards book??? Credit where credit is due...
Quite simply it's the best!!
Very clear concise explanations. Photographic examples of right and wrong images, which are very useful to compare for visual learners. Help and tips on how to set up your equipment, finally at the end of each section he gives a clear summary of what you've just covered.
The icing on the cake! All the images in the book Richard not only tells you the type of lens he used, the settings etc, he even explains how to take it so you can hopefully get a similar standard image ;0). Thanks Richard.
This is by far the best guide I've read, and I've not been paid to do this review :0)
Buy the book you won't be disappointed.
