Underwater Film Cameras
For those exciting, unmissable underwater shots, an underwater film camera is an essential purchase for divers wishing to bring back some sights from the depths. If you love the classic look of film cameras but want to take it on holiday, an underwater film camera is right for you.
Underwater film cameras are available as unbranded and branded items. Canon, Motor Marine and more all offer the unique opportunity to take professional quality pictures of marine life and underwater terrain to share with your friends and family.
Features of underwater film cameras
Depending on your budget and general requirements, features and quality of underwater film cameras vary. For standard functionality, a Snap Sights underwater film camera comes in at the low end of the price spectrum and offers focus free, 35mm optic, with built in flash. This is an ideal film camera for an amateur snapper/diver.
Further up the price spectrum, the Sea & Sea Motor Marine 35 MX10 is an automatic, 35mm camera, usable up to depth of 35 metres to capture those stunning dive shots. This is a lightweight camera with a hardwearing waterproof body in yellow and black, and is a popular choice for a mid-priced underwater film camera.
For more professional underwater photography, Nikon produce a range of high-end underwater film cameras at top quality spec. The Nikon Nikonos V 35mm underwater camera features automatic flash control and allows for compensation of exposure to optimise picture quality to produce stunning underwater photography.
Another desirable feature of this top of the line underwater film camera is the aperture-priority manual and auto modes, allowing adjustment of the shutter speed to attain the best effect.
This camera can also be used to depths of up to 160 metres, making it an ideal piece of underwater photography kit for serious divers wishing to capture and share their deep-sea experiences.
Underwater film cameras general use a 35mm film roll. Some cameras may include a free roll of film, otherwise compatible 35mm film roll can be purchased at competitive prices. There are also built-in flash underwater cameras available, allowing you to illuminate the darkest depths of the ocean.
Underwater camera cases are also available if you are looking to upgrade your current camera.
