4 must-have items for making underwater videos:
- Waterproof camera: Camera is exactly an item which will film your underwater objects. It should make quality videos both on the ground and underwater. That is why you should try to make simple videos on the ground as in more difficult conditions you will not have much space for mistakes. Also, don’t forget about range and resolution which determine the depth and accuracy of your filming;
