Kit Reviews

I write quite a lot of reviews on underwater photography equipment and several are linked from these pages. My scientific background gives me a technical curiosity and makes me quite a technical shooter. I’ve always been interested in fully understanding how certain images are made and how the equipment works to produce them. That tends to spark my artistic creativity, giving me ideas for fresh images. It is why I have always enjoyed writing detailed equipment reviews.

Underwater photography is a technically challenging area and new cameras often push back the boundaries of the types of images we can produce. My reviews tend to be biased towards the gear I use and like (which is why the camera reviews are mainly for Nikons!). These reviews are typically for Wetpixel.com and Underwater Photography Magazine, although they are regularly reproduced elsewhere too. My reviews are often very detailed (and lengthy) as I am well aware that photographers about to spend thousands on a new system want that detail. I try not just to review the kit, but pass on tips for using it underwater too. As these reviews are very popular I thought I would reproduce them on my website too. I have not edited or updated them, so they appear here exactly as they were first published (so you can laugh at the comments and predictions that came true and those that did not).
