Doing surf photography demands that you get into the water, well maybe not totally true. You can make it from the beach with a decent lens, as I have done so far. For a long time I have wanted to take the step into the sea with my But sooner or later you want to step into the sea with your camera. Last year I bought a water proof Nikon AW1 and did some shooting from the water. But that camera did not really work for me. Dont think the image quality was good enough and I had to send it back after that I got some water into the camera. I have been checking out water housings that are made for surf photography, but they are really expensive. So I got little bit excited when I found this one. It fits my Nikon D7000 and it got all the controls I need. And the price was in my range of what I can afford. I had to do some modification on it to get it work properly but now I’m ready to go. Going to Portugal in a couple of months and I will bring with me.
And yes I will start out in small sized waves… water photography is so much more than just shooting pictures.
