Most camera’s built in flash is very weak for underwater photography, while its effective range is usually 12-18 feet above water, it is no more than 2-3 feet underwater.
It will work for closeup shots with open aperture but will not be effective in almost any other type of shots.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s better than no flash at all but for getting good results , you need an external strobe.
We offer strobes/flashes starting at $99, see our Ultimate Underwater Strobe Guide here.
