Video is the best way to share the sights, sounds, motion and dynamics of the underwater world. If you want to get the best clips and also learn to edit your scuba diving stories to share with friends through ScubaEarth and other social media, then the PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course is for you. Learn to create underwater videos that are interesting, entertaining and worth watching again and again.
If you are a PADI (Junior) Open Water Diver who is at least 10 years old, you can enroll in the PADI Underwater Videographer Specialty course.
What will you learn?
Your PADI Instructor will explain how to select, maintain and care for your underwater video equipment, whether its a housed unit with external lights, or your underwater camera that also shoots video. You will cover fundamentals such as exposure, focus, story line and sequencing. Post dive, you will learn about the editing process and how to produce a video that truly captures your scuba adventures.
Also, the first dive of this PADI Specialty Diver course may credit as an Adventure Dive toward your Advanced Open Water Diver certification - ask your instructor about earning credit.
How can you start learning now?
PADIs Underwater Photographer Online - PADIs eLearning option - cover the basics of underwater imaging, with the third section dedicated to video.

What scuba gear will you use?
Of course you will use an underwater video camera and need your basic scuba equipment. To edit your video, you will need access to video editing equipment, which usually includes a computer with editing software. Ask your PADI Instructor or local dive centre staff about what additional equipment you may need for getting high-quality underwater video while diving locally.
