Postby Ramsay » Mon Sep 04, 2017 1:45 pm

i've been looking around to find a digital camera that i like. i'm really looking for a waterproof one, as i am in the water A LOT. but after reading reviews and such, i find that most are lacking in picture quality. what are the best waterproof cameras, as far as picture quality?

tl;dr do i have to sacrifice picture quality when buying a waterproof camera?

The reviews Ive read on the waterproof cameras all have complaints about image quality and shutter lag. It seems theyve concentrated so much on the waterproof feature they forgot all about what a camera is intended to do. From what Ive read so far I would recommend choosing a camera which has an accessory waterproof housing available. This way you can have image quality low shutter lag and waterproof all together.

The best picture quality is certainly the Canon D10. But it only have VGA video.

Alternatively, the Panasonic TS1 also has produces good pictures and HD video.

In general, the picture quality of a waterproof camera is not as good as your normal point and shoot. One of the reason is because the lens of such camera needs to be fixed behind a waterproof glass.

But your normal point and shoot can have movable, retractable lens.
