This paper details the development and integration of a digital stills camera system for the Autosub autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV). A monochrome Charge Coupled Device (CCD) imager (for amateur astronomy) and a zoom flash (for conventional amateur photography) were selected and prepared for deepwater operation. The system was successfully trialled in the Western Approaches (May 2004) and its first science mission was carried out in East Greenland (September 2004).
