All Things Underwater Photography
I want to be able to use my wide angle lens and the telephoto underwater, however, the autofocus will not work. I have specifically checked to make sure I can change the focal length above water (while in the underwater housing) and the autofocus works fine. Underwater, however, the camera cannot seem to autofocus.
I did a test today while the camera was in the housing. All conditions are the same except for being underwater. It was a sunny day in a crystal clear pool. And, yes, I have checked to be sure the autofocus is turned on on the lens and the camera body.
Anybody have any ideas? Is there something else I can try? Is there such a thing as a single focal length wide angle lens and should I be using that instead? Thanks!
