Tired of having a negative rig that is hard to control underwater?  There are many good reasons for having a neutral/slightly negative rig.  If like myself you do not have an endless supply of money to keep buying equipment to try and get the right balance or little access to a pool you need to find out your starting point.  

By understanding the exact weight of your camera rig underwater you can then work out what best to do next.
