This rating was a toss-up between 1 and 3 stars...

I am a (D)SLR hobbyist photographer on land (15+ years) and just starting underwater with a mirrorless system (1 year).

The book is primarily focused on DSLR photography with only a brief Point-and-Shoot section. The information is similar between the two but a lot is not necessary for a Point-and-Shoot / Mirrorless system and I skipped.

I learned some useful tips such as shoot at eye level or up at your subject and f/8.0 1/100th. The entire book could be summed up with these two items... The pictures in the book were nice to look at.

The misspellings / grammar issues - this killed it for me. For an edited / published book this is annoying. Would recommend a different editor or send it to me to review. I'm not perfect, which is why if I'm catching these issues, there might be a problem...

I did not feel that this book was worth the price for what I gained.

This book covers photography fundamentals, and their applications to underwater techniques. It recommends equipment, and it relates information to both SLR and point-and-shoot cameras. This book is full of content, but very interesting reading (I'm not a reader myself, but found myself going through half a book in one sitting...adding bookmarks, etc).

This is the second underwater photography book I've purchased, and this one really does deserve 5 stars. The material walks you through going from basic photography concepts for the beginner, to great tips and tricks for more advanced photographers.

The book provides some quick pointers on how to setup your camera for general, decent picture taking, as well as specific settings for certain situations. It is organized to self contained sections for particular topics (housings, lighting, etc).

It was a good buy for me.

A well written book which covers all aspects of underwater photography. While I disagree with a few points make by the author, it is notable that he conflicts with himself in a few small passages thus stating viewpoints I believe match current practice. Notable is the author strongly discourages use of TTL for strobe photography, but in a small passage cites if your system can use TTL then the results can be rewarding. I teach TTL when possible. It isn't like we are living in a pre-1970 world at this juncture...

In short this is the book I recommend to my students.

This is a very high quality product. It is about as thick as a text book and full of full color photographs. It would be a sin to order this for a black and white kindle--get the print version even if you love your kindle as I do.

This book is very well organized with technical camera setting information as well as a lot of less technical things such as composition.

The book has one chapter on point and shoot cameras, however, much of technical setting information is designed for the manual settings in a SLR style camera. I was hoping for more detail about how to get more out of the limited settings in a point and shoot camera, but there wasn't much in the book. That may because there is not much to cover, versus the book lacking. I'm not sure since I'm new to underwater photography, but the book was still great.

Good information poorly presented. If I still had the eyesight I did 20 years ago I might have a different opinion, but it's almost as if they deliberately made it hard to read. There's a huge margin at the outer edge of the page, with a tiny font to present the text on perhaps 70% of the available width. Maybe it's a 10 point font, but a 12 point font could have been used and the book could still be smaller. The picture captions are even worse, done in a finer font with pale ink. It doesn't help that the paper is slightly glossy, though that's better for the pictures.

I'm fairly new to underwater photography and had a number of those "am I doing this right" questions. Martin Edge is very skillful at thoroughly covering a subject. He starts at a relatively novice level and quickly builds up a thoroughly detailed explanation. I like the fact that he also includes his personal opinions and doesn't leave it wide open. You can ultimately choose to shoot however you like, but it's nice to see how someone with his experience and success does it. Lots of example photographs so you can see the good and the bad.

I have been doing UW photography for about 8 years and diving over 35 years. I have read just about every book published on underwater photography--including Edge's third edition of this book. The Fourth edition is, by far, the best book written on the subject.

This book starts with all the fundamentals for someone just starting. For the intermediate/experienced photographer, it goes into more depth on Edge's own style. He does have some biases--as do all underwater photographers--and he does present them as such. However, he does state the more popular ideas/thinking on the same subjects. His biases should not be dismissed without trial or serious thought because he does have expertise in his subject.

One of the strengths of this book is that is written really only for digital photography. Just about all the books published 3-5 years ago (including Edge's earlier editions of this book), were either written about underwater photography, in general (since the authors had little experience with digital) or were mixed film and digital. This book has nice chapters on work flow, digital manipulation in post shooting, and discussion of digital equipment--up-to-date.
As far as I'm concerned, it is THE book to have.
I am a published photographer and yet every time I read a chapter I learn something new. I cannot recommend this book enough to both new and seasoned underwater photographers. Great contributions by other experts and links to very useful sites. I hope that one day we will see another edition as he seems to add more value every time he revises his books.

I would enjoy diving with Martin one day to see some of his "magic" for myself.
