But sometimes it's impractical to get the amount of practice time in the water that you need to become proficient at judging correct exposure and flash balance. The UW Photo Simulator enables you to practice making exposure and flash fill corrections without the fuss of actually getting wet. It is available here as a free download. Both Mac and Windows versions are available. Just click on the appropriate Link below and the download should begin immediately. The New versions are here!
