Best Underwater Digital Camera

Where underwater digital cameras are concerned its not a bad idea to not go for the ultra cheap models nor the most expensive ones if you’re working from a budget.  Knowing how much you wish to spend beforehand is the best way to help narrow down your choices.  Many waterproof cameras are shockproof and crushproof which means you don’t have to worry so much about causing damage to the camera if you should drop it.

I know you’ve got to be tired of relying on your Iphone to try and capture those special moments plus you can’t take your Iphone with you if like snorkeling like I do.  Remember that the best underwater camera 2011 will be the one that’s best for your wallet and that has the must have features that you simply feel you cannot leave without.  Our underwater camera reviews 2011 have picked our favorite top three camera for to consider.

Sony Cybershot TX10

[easyazon-image-link asin=”B004H8FNGM” alt=”Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-TX10 16.2 MP Waterproof Digital Still Camera with Exmor R CMOS Sensor, 3D Sweep Panorama and Full HD 1080/60i Video (Black)” src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51cKa9kJffL.jpg” align=”center” width=”460″ height=”500″]Sony latest underwater digital camera is both slim and sleek.  It’s compact and rugged packed with 16.2 megapixels which gives you good quality pictures in low light settings..  It’s dustproof, waterproof and shockproof.  It now has 1080P high definition.  What other underwater camera can you find in this price range that comes shoots HD video?  The shutter speed on this camera is as fast as lightening.  We were able to take it to the sandy and it was not adversely affected by the sand or the water.  The one downside if you can really call it one is that the battery life can be less than desirable in that we were only able to shot about 100 pictures without a recharge.

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is a perfect fit for the adventurer and one who desires a top notch ruggedly built underwater camera that also happens to shoot exceptional HD videos.  This is one of those underwater cameras that you need if you often find yourself in hostile environments but still want to snap some excellent photos.  The camera has good housing that is well-sealed so as not to cause damage to the interior parts of your camera such as the batteries or HMDI or USB connections.  It is shockproof, freezeproof and waterproof but only shoots video in 720P.  At 14 Megapixels you get some good picture quality in low light as well.  This is perhaps the best ruggedsized camera that you can buy on the market that takes a licking and keeps on ticking. (excuse the pun)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3
[easyazon-image-link asin=”B004KKZ0J2″ alt=”Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS3 12.1 MP Rugged/Waterproof Digital Camera with 4.6x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Silver)” src=”http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41ys1-rLDoL.jpg” align=”center” width=”500″ height=”386″]

Even though the Panasonic Lumix TS3 images are a little on the soft side with still like this toughly built cameras that has tons of innovative features.  Yes, it’s equipped with a GPS, barometer and altimeter – features that you may or may not ever need or use but what the heck they are there if you need them.  It’s waterproof up to 40 feet.  Can you say along with me, “how low can you go?”  Colby Bryant could drop this thing from as tall as he is and it would withstand the drop.  It fast and captures high quality 1080p HD quality videos.  The best thing about the video feature is that you have the ability to zoom in while in shooting.  Now this camera is definitely at the higher end of the camera food change but you only live once – right?  This our number one pick if you are in need of an outdoor and rugged underwater camera.
