Meet the WetRez Team

WetRez Cameras had the pleasure of catching up with Sarah from Bang Magazine this week. Our ‘Meet the Team’ feature will appear in the September Edition of Bang Magazine – see below for our feature…

WetRez Cameras are Cairns’ digital underwater camera hire specialists. With an emphasis on providing great service, quality products and professional advice, they guarantee you the best possible underwater camera hire services in Far North Queensland.

WetRez Cameras is owned and operated by Leith and Jessica, PADI Dive Instructors and professional underwater photographers, who together have over 20 years of underwater photography experience on the Great Barrier Reef. They started WetRez Cameras in 2005 as Cairns’ first dedicated digital underwater photography camera hire service.

Over the years they have worked hard to select and train a fantastic team who continue to provide you with the tools and advice you need to get the very best high resolution underwater photographs and video memories of your trip on the amazing Great Barrier Reef.

We caught up with shop employees Neri & Kelly to find out more about their amazing products and services:

Why rent a digital Underwater Camera for your reef trip?

N: Your trip to the Great Barrier Reef is a once in a life time experience and is one of the most beautiful places to be, why not show off as many photos and videos of your trip as you can?!

K: Our digital underwater camera hire charges are the best in town! Our prices are 30% cheaper than if you hire a camera on one of the boats. But the best part is our service – we teach you how to use the camera before you go, this helps you get the very best results from your day on the Great Barrier Reef.

What camera would you recommend?

K: For beginners who just want great photos with no hassle we highly recommend the Canon D20. It takes 12 megapixel photos and full HD video PLUS we provide you with a 4GB SD card which is yours to keep at the end of the day!!

N: We also have the GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition for hire – this camera is sensational if you want to take great high quality videos to make your friends back home jealous!

Tell us about your favourite product in the store:

K: My favourite product has to be the DiCAPac housing for iPhones and SmartPhones. It makes your own phone waterproof to 10 metres, you can use it for so many activities and it is a bargain at just $30!

What’s the most popular item you sell in store?

N: With so many adventurous activities in Cairns we have lots of people after the GoPro Hero 3 and accessories. We stock everything from your basic mounts such as head straps, poles and suction cups to premium accessories like the Touch LCD Bacpac and Battery Bacpac.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

N: I love seeing the customers after a day out on the reef, they always have exciting stories and amazing pictures. It makes me feel so happy to know that I have helped them capture these unforgettable underwater moments.

K: I love how excited people are after making a new camera purchase. GoPro customers are my favourite…they practically run home so then can play with their new toy! With so many GoPro accessories in store our customers are like kids in a candy shop!!

Head down to meet Neri, Kelly and the rest of the WetRez team today! They are open every day of the week (and year!) from 7am til 9pm daily.
