Getting ready for your dive is always exciting and at times can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you are an underwater photographer and need to think about all your camera gear on top of your normal scuba equipment.


And let’s be honest: our camera is a bit like our baby! (It costs a fortune, but at least it doesn’t cry…). This is why we want to be extra careful when it comes to handling our underwater camera equipment.


The worst thing that could happen on your dive is to flood your camera! The second worst is probably finally encountering that special species you have been dreaming about (maybe a whale shark? Or is it a blue-ring octopus?), and then realizing that you forgot to take your lens cap off… 


To prevent those little mistakes from happening (and ruining your life…I mean dive), establishing a habit of a pre-dive camera check can help.


As a prudent underwater photographer, you want to perform a pre-dive camera check every single time before you start your dive. 


This checklist will help you! (Feel free to print it and bring it on your next trip!)
