Underwater Photography Equipment Reviews – I think it is true to say that part of the attraction for many underwater photographers is the gear we use. And I learnt many years ago never to discuss my equipment on a trip unless I was specifically asked about it. Even then I will be quite careful what I say!

Don’t get me wrong, I suffer from GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) quite badly. But I do understand very well now that just buying new stuff won’t make me a better photographer.
