I’ve been working as a dive guide for over a decade and a blogger for nearly 5, but am a very beginner underwater photographer. I’ve shot with DSL on trips for years – and finally, after over a literal gazillion dives, I’ve taken the leap to purchase my first underwater camera setup (Jan 2021)!
This camera gear list will grow as my knowledge and budget grow. Take a peek below to see what’s in my camera bag right now, or click here to read what I learned from purchasing my first camera.
Keep in mind I don’t travel with all of this gear all the time, I have a couple of different options depending on what I’m going to see, where I’m going, and how much space I have in my baggage. I like traveling light!
Here’s what’s in my camera bag:
- Sony DSC-RX100 Vii
- Ikelite Housing for Sony RX100 Vi & Vii
- Fantasea UWL-09F Wide Angle Lens
- Ikelike Wide Angle Port M67
- Ikelike Tray with Dual Release Handles
- Pelican 1200 Case
- Canon EOS 50D
- Canon EF 24-70mm Lens
- Canon EF 50mm Lens
- Olympus TG-Tracker
- Android Galaxy S10
- ULANZI Vlog Tripod
- Phone Tripod Mount
- Nat Geo NGA2540 Sachel
Next on my underwater camera wish list – A larger camera bag for flights and a strobe to capture the smaller critters!
