How to shoot amazing underwater pictures

Just buy the Olympus Tough TG-1, set it on "iAuto" and shoot.

Just buy the Olympus Tough TG-1, set it on “iAuto” and shoot. The A.I. of this small camera works very well underwater. The fast f/2 lens let you have sharp pictures even in low light conditions, at least with static/slow subjects. The additional white LED gives macros brilliant colours.

Among the very few defects, colour vibrance quickly decreases in low lights, like probably with other underwater compact cameras. Big temperature differences (hot to cold) caused condensation on lens and LCD, however both disappearing in a few minutes. Last but not least, the three screws of the protective lens are not tough at all, being already rusty after a few weeks of use.

Judge the pictures we shot in Greece (Poros and Serifos) this summer holidays by clicking on this new portfolio gallery: deep blue!

    niiiiiice!! amazingly correct colour!! can’t wait to test my underwater case!!…maybe next year…
    about the rusty screws: is it because you didn’t rinse the camera with fresh water after use??

      Thank you! Indeed the automatic option works good on this small camera. Let’s do a fotomarathon underwater, then 🙂 I did not wash it just once, so for 24h it had some salt on it … I think I will have to treat the screws with some anti-rust stuff but I have no idea which one.
