  Most 'serious' underwater photographers aspire to using a large sensor camera like a modern DSLR or Mirrorless interchangeable lens (MILC). The image quality and lens choices are significantly better than with a small sensor compact camera.

This is seriously compelling for mirrorless users, so I decided to put it to the test on a recent trip to Lanzarote. I bought adapters and port fittings for my existing Inon wet lenses that I use on a compact Canon S110 outfit.
