Scuba Diver Through the Lens will be debuting in November at the DEMA 2011 show held in Florida.  It will hit newsstands on January 1st, 2012 and run quarterly in both print and digital formats.

The new magazine is designed to educate the global underwater photography and videography community on equipment, technique and travel destinations as well as highlight the world's top underwater image-makers. 

The magazine is a collaboration between Scuba Diver AustralAsia, DivePhotoGuide, and Edition Fifty Fathoms.  An editor from each source will represent their respective region.  

I first heard about this fantastic new publication from the DivePhotoGuide Twitter page.  DPG has proven to be a valuable resource for technical information on underwater photography and videography.  It features guides on technique and traveling; equipment reviews; daily community news; monthly contests; and beautiful photo galleries.  The images I've found on DPG are among the coolest I've ever seen - both above and below sea level.  Here's a sample of what you might come across:

Eric Cheng

Mark Melnick

Thomas Peschak
If you're interested in pursuing underwater photography, but don't have the extra cash for a fancy rig, check out the Canon SX230 and its underwater housing on  For less than $600 you can get a great new pocket camera and an introduction to a very addictive hobby.
