A kaleidoscope, drop of water, and a lens walk into a barThe result is something that will open new doors to your underwater photography. The SAGA Saga Magic Ball is possibly the most fun lens you will ever use. It produces a circular fisheye image in the center and a water drop effect on the edges. It might be a one trick pony for underwater photography contests, but it makes images that will capture the eye and it’s hell of a lot of fun! Click Here to see great images shot with the Saga Magic Ball.
THE ULTIMATE ALL-IN-ONE MACRO LENSThe SAGA Trio offers the ultimate flexibility of any underwater macro converter. Its elegant design allows you to flip between 3 different macro powers with a simple flip of your finger. It mounts easily to any macro port with 67mm threads and is a joy to use.
TAKE YOUR MACRO SHOTS TO THE NEXT LEVELAnyone can shoot an underwater photo. Great images are made with great lighting. Stop taking fish identification photos and learn the magic of snoot lighting. You’ll need to dedicate a few dives to get the hang of it, but your images will inspire you and others on a whole new level.

BACKSCATTER AWARD FOR BEST ADVANCED COMPACT CAMERAThe Panasonic LX10 earned our Best Advanced Compact Camera award in our Best Compact Cameras for 2017 article. The Panasonic LX10 is Panasonic’s answer to the 1-inch sensor sized Sony RX100 V and Canon G7 X II. While image quality is excellent and is comparable to these other 1-inch sensor cameras, the Panasonic stands out as having the best control set, white balance, and 4K video of any compact camera in our review.

HIGH RESOLUTION, LOW NOISE & HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE—YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL!The Nikon D850 is probably best defined by its extremely sharp 46MP sensor and its ability to capture a VERY high dynamic range without sacrificing resolution. In the past, a shooter had to decide between high-resolution or good low-light performance and high dynamic range from their camera. The Nikon D850 gives us underwater shooters the low-light ability and high dynamic range we need for the underwater environment with one of the highest resolutions in the industry.
