Here on Coral Sea Dreaming, we have available great quality cameras for hire. We have 4 of the latest Olympus tough TG4’s encased in a bullet proof Ikelite housing. Guaranteed to never flood and take an amazing shot. These cameras specifically have underwater settings with an inbuilt red filter, photo compression setting to give a 3rd dimension and shoot in raw mode to give a very high resolution for super sharp images whilst either snorkelling or diving at depth. You can either use these cameras for shooting film or hire one of our GoPro’s if you prefer using a smaller device to capture those lasting memories.
