Underwater Pictures With Olympus TG-6.
Manual and Practical Guide for Best Underwater Settings
At first glance, the Olympus TG-Series may seem simple, compact cameras for beginners. But it is not! In skilled hands, these cameras can take great photos. Alexey Zaitsev, an experienced underwater photographer, and professional journalist have worked for several diving magazines in Russia.
For many years he photographed only with “serious” photographic equipment, film, and digital SLR cameras of Nikon company. Five years ago, he accidentally tried to take photos with the Olympus TG-4 camera. He was very surprised by this small camera’s capabilities and started using it as a second camera in all his expeditions. Then there was the TG-5, and the relationship between the photographer and the camera became even more reliable and closer. With the Olympus TG-6, he never leaves the camera and takes it on all his dives. His extensive experience in underwater photography has helped him to master the TG’s controls perfectly. As it turns out, to get the best possible picture quality and manage it effectively underwater, you have to give up automatic presets. It works very well, and it is not a wrong solution if you are a novice photographer. But you will achieve the best result if you control the camera yourself.
