This is the second underwater photography book I've purchased, and this one really does deserve 5 stars. The material walks you through going from basic photography concepts for the beginner, to great tips and tricks for more advanced photographers.
The book provides some quick pointers on how to setup your camera for general, decent picture taking, as well as specific settings for certain situations. It is organized to self contained sections for particular topics (housings, lighting, etc).
It was a good buy for me.
In short this is the book I recommend to my students.
I would enjoy diving with Martin one day to see some of his "magic" for myself.
Ron Lucas, Bermuda
This book is very well organized with technical camera setting information as well as a lot of less technical things such as composition.
The book has one chapter on point and shoot cameras, however, much of technical setting information is designed for the manual settings in a SLR style camera. I was hoping for more detail about how to get more out of the limited settings in a point and shoot camera, but there wasn't much in the book. That may because there is not much to cover, versus the book lacking. I'm not sure since I'm new to underwater photography, but the book was still great.
Do not buy the kindle version. I did and, like many electronic books, if you need to flip back and forth to look at pictures they do not work.
I bought the book and have not looked at the kindle version since.
