We rent a variety of Cameras, underwater housings and accessories. We have the strongest rental program available today with several benefits:

* Some people dive only occasionally and choose not to own underwater photography equipment.  Since a complete underwater still photo or video system may cost several thousand dollars (or more), the depreciation in value of the equipment can far exceed the cost of a rental or two per year.  Additionally, renting allows you to be using the latest equipment every time you dive.  Considering the rate at which this gear evolves, this is reason enough to be a renter.

* Our rental program allows our customers to test equipment before they buy it; possibly trying 2 or 3 alternatives prior to making a commitment.
* We allow up to 50% of your rental dollars to be applied towards purchase.
* This is not a "Rent-To-Buy" program, however, the opportunity to use the different types of equipment which you are considering for purchase before you actually buy, is a very cost-effective way to assist you in making the right purchase decision the FIRST time, rather than potentially buying equipment you will later be dissatisfied with----then making a purchase again—and maybe again!

Our underwater camera rental department is the most extensive available to the public today - both for both still photography and for video.  In our underwater camera rental department we offer a wide variety of underwater housings for digital SLR cameras including underwater housings for medium format cameras such as Hasselblad.

In our under water video rental department, we have many models of underwater housings for digital video cameras in both standard definition and high definition.

We also rent all kinds of underwater lighting equipment for still photography and underwater video.

We have several housings for earlier digital cameras and some film systems including Nikon F5.   We still offer the complete Nikonos RS and Nikonos 5 systems for those few who still shoot film and for those rare situations when the highly specialized and equally highly evolved Nikonos system simply does a better job.

A B Sea offers some “point and shoot “ systems for those of you who are interested in doing some casual photography as part of your sport diving or other water sports activities.

Please call 310-645 8992 (best) or email us at for pricing information and availability.
