For people starting out I would recommend investing in good quality lenses over a bells and whistles camera body. Camera bodies come and go but a good set of high quality glass will serve you well for a lifetime. You can upgrade your camera body later down the track as you progress. Also when choosing a camera you are buying into a system that you’ll want to stick to for the above reason. I use Nikon, they’ve never changed their lens mount so I can use lenses 30 years old on the latest bodies if I wish and I often do.

I use a Nikon D810 DSLR camera with a Nikkor 14-24mm F2.8 lens for most of my ocean photography. This equipment goes into an Aquatica Digital waterproof housing. My lighting comes from 2 x INON underwater strobes.

My lighting comes from 2 underwater strobes. They are made by INON and are the Z220 model. I like the INON strobe because they are very compact compared to other models and that’s important with this type of photography as you are often working between rocks in tight spaces.
