Why Nikon?

I chose Nikon as my first when I first moved to a professional set up. The D810 image quality for underwater is astonishing. It has been my most reliable and favourite set up for underwater imagery for five years now. I’m looking forward to progressing to the Z7II for my primary underwater camera. 

The D500 has also been a big favourite of mine for its cropped sensor and its lightning fast focusing capability.
