OUR FAVORITE UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY GADGETS & CAMERAS FOR THE 2017 HOLIDAYS

VIVA CREATIVITY!







A kaleidoscope, drop of water, and a lens walk into a bar

The 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.







Price $239.99














THE ULTIMATE ALL-IN-ONE MACRO LENS

The 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.



Price $816.20














TAKE YOUR MACRO SHOTS TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Anyone 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.

FINALLY... REFINED UNDERWATER FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY!

The team at Backscatter is very impressed with the Retra Flash. This aluminum body underwater strobe not only looks good, but offers pro-level output with fast recycle times, optical TTL, and the lighting accessories that make us want to be better photographers. We’ve been mourning the loss of the Sea & Sea YS-250 and the new engineering from RETRA is offering us the specs we’ve been asking for.







Price $819.99


















OUR FAVORITE COMPACT CAMERA TRAVEL BAG

The Mirrorless Mover is our favorite shoulder bag for GoPro and small compact camera systems. ThinkTank makes high-quality travel bags designed specifically to protect sensitive camera gear during transport, ensuring your gear will arrive ready to use.







Price $69.75












OUR FAVORITE INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED SYSTEMS











BACKSCATTER AWARD FOR BEST ADVANCED COMPACT CAMERA

The 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.





















BEST STILLS IMAGE QUALITY IN A MIRRORLESS CAMERA

The Sony a6500 is a 24MP APS-C sized mirrorless camera that also shoots 4K video at a bit rate of 100mbps. You can shoot it like a compact with the kit lens and add wet lenses for wide angle and macro, or go totally pro with top grade dedicated SLR type optics. Image quality is 2nd only to full frame SLR cameras, making this a very versatile camera for either the new or advanced shooter.

Price $1,399.99



















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.
