Sea & Sea MDX-850 Camera Housing

The new Nikon D850 full-frame 45.7 megapixel stills and 8k UHD video camera could well suit the serious underwater-photography enthusiast or jobbing diving photo-journalist and video reporter.

It even features built-in time lapse for those Blue Planet II moments – if you’re willing to leave it lying around on the seabed! Sea and Sea has brought out a 100m-rated aluminium MDX-850 housing for the camera, which it says is 11% lighter than the previous MDX-810, making it travel-friendlier. Handling has, it says, been improved over that model by relocating both the main and sub command dials. For ease of use in low light, controls have luminous indicators. Owner-specified options include four viewfinders, a vacuum tester and TTL strobe connectors, and the MDX-850 starts from £3995.

Do you need to be fit to dive?

Adventurer, technical diver, stuntman, climber and all-round Action Man Andy Torbet knows a thing or two about keeping fit. Here he gives some basic advice to help us all get back into shape for when we can hit the water again.

Ship shape

The skipper promised me a wreck, so it must be down here somewhere. If the vis was better, I might even be able to see it.

Things fall apart

I can’t quite understand it. How did that happen? Every item of my scuba kit was fine when I put it away.

Free and squeezy

Freediving – it’s basically snorkelling with good PR. It involves holding your breath, often to the point of semi-suffocation. What’s so free about that?
