In the world of photography, one of the surefire ways to standout is to take amazing underwater shots; not everyone can do it because of the additional challenges coming from the water, the sea animals and such. Of course you’d require a quality camera that has proven its worth through an unterwasserkamera test. Equipment also adds to the difficulty of mastering underwater photography since you can’t practice with just any device; sure there are waterproof casings for phones but they can only do so much and the quality is just lacking.
Canon 7D Mark II
Since the release of the original 7D, photographers around the world have waited for the release of the 7D Mark II mainly due to the major upgrades that it promised. True to its word, it had more incredible upgrades than anyone initially imagined; 20.2MP APS-C CMOS sensor, intervalometer, faster processers, a new battery, higher frames per second burst and even enhanced ISO capabilities. But the star among all the upgrades, and the reason why people flocked to shops to purchase it, is the Dual-Pixel CMOS AF that was initially released with the Canon 70D. What it basically does is enable the camera to use phase detection as well as contrast detection AF even when in Line View Mode; in short you can use autofocus when recording videos.
The body of the Canon 7D Mark II is made of magnesium alloy and the layout of the buttons is similar to the original 7D. The sole addition to the body is the AF Area Selection Lever that was built around the Multi-controller pad. By doing so, the user is able to easily change and adjust the AF area with just a simple flick of the thumb instead of the M-Fn button located just above the shutter button.
