How Can You Use Your Camera Underwater?

If you a huge fan of photography and want to extend your shooting capabilities underwater, you need to invest in an underwater camera housing. Camera housing encloses your Nikon camera so that you can take it in to a lake, in the sea, and also to use in wet weather conditions. Being able to use your camera underwater is ideal if you enjoy snorkeling or scuba diving so you can get great snaps of the underwater world to share with your friends and family.

Are There Different Types of Underwater Housing?

Unfortunately, you cannot just grab any underwater housing and assume that it is going to be right for your camera. You can find various depth measurements that indicate how deep you are able to take your camera underwater while still being protected. Some products can go up to 20 meters, while others can go to 40 or 60 meters. There are two options of housing that you can consider:

  • Model specific housing: In order to ensure that an underwater housing is going to be the right fit for your camera, you need to check to see if the specifications indicate that it is suitable for your model. Since different cameras have different sized lenses and bodies, the correct housing should be used so as to avoid your camera being too loose or too tight inside as well as making sure the external buttons line up with the camera buttons.
  • Dry bag pouch: A dry bag pouch is basically a bag that you can seal your camera in to be able to take underwater. These are like a universal housing for your camera and will fit many sizes of digital cameras.

How Do I Make Sure My Housing is Waterproof?

When you choose underwater housing for your Nikon camera, it is a good idea to double check that it is indeed waterproof before your first use. You can do this by following these steps:

  • Step 1: Inspect the plastic casing for any signs of damage, dents, or holes.
  • Step 2: Open up the housing and place a piece of tissue paper inside. Close the case securely.
  • Step 3: Put the housing into a bowl of water or into a sink filled with water for a minute. Alternatively, you can hold it under the shower and turn it around if you don't have access to a bowl or basin.
  • Step 4: Open up the casing and inspect the piece of tissue paper. If the tissue is still completely dry, then the housing is completely waterproof. If you find that the tissue is damp or wet, then you should not attempt to use it with your camera underwater.
