Fujifilm Cameras Underwater-Friendly

Fujifilm has released a durable underwater housing unit for the FinePix F30 Zoom.

The watertight WP-FXF30 keeps the camera dry and copes with the pressure of dives as deep as 40 meters.

The company has also released its first waterproof case for entry-level cameras, the WP-FXA500. This is suitable for the FinePix A400 and A500 Zooms and is waterproof at depths of up to 3 meters.

The FinePix F30 Zoom offers low light performance, which helps it capture snaps under water. It also boasts a dedicated underwater mode that acts as an in-built red filter. Choosing this setting automatically reduces the blue cast of subjects in your underwater images.

Fujifilm also offers an underwater strobe kit. This is a lightweight external flash in its own waterproof housing with a flexible arm that can be moved around to direct the light where it’s needed.
