Best Waterproof Cameras

The best waterproof cameras are designed to go where other cameras fear to tread. Indeed, you can take waterproof cameras with you when you snorkel or scuba dive, take them to the beach or even just play with them in a pool, without worrying about getting wet. In addition, most of the best waterproof cameras are also designed to withstand a few bumps and falls, making them handy for hiking and camping. And because some cameras also allow you to integrate GPS data, you can not only see the pictures but also where you took them.

Best Waterproof Cameras

So how do you choose the best waterproof camera for you? Assuming you’re not just looking for the best cheap camera, there are a few questions you need to answer. Do you want to take pictures or videos, or both? How important is image quality to you, and do you need a fast burst mode to capture moving subjects? How much do you need to spend?

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is the best waterproof camera of all for its versatility and ease of use. It features a 12-megapixel sensor, f/2.0 lens, Olympus TruPic VIII image processor, and 4X optical zoom. It is capable of shooting 4K video at 30 fps, as well as 120 fps slo-mo video at 1080p. It has multiple underwater shooting modes, as well as a macro system, so you can get up close and personal with aquatic life.

The TG-6 is waterproof up to 15 meters, which is not as good as the Nikon Coolpix W300 but should be more than enough for snorkeling. If you want to go further, Olympus makes a waterproof camera. The camera is also shock resistant up to 2 meters and can operate at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. The TG-6 also includes what Olympus calls a field sensor system, which tracks your movements, temperature, and location, so you can see your statistics later, or integrate this information directly into your images. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.

Our favorite deep-sea diving camera, the Nikon 16-MP Coolpix W300 has the same 100-foot water resistance as its predecessor, the AW130, while increasing shock resistance to withstand drops from up to 7.9 feet. We liked the fact that it features a slightly more powerful 5x zoom (from 24mm to 120mm) than the Olympus lens (24mm to 100mm), which is useful for capturing close-up photos and videos without degrading the image quality that occurs when using digital zoom.

Like the TG-5, the W300 can capture video at up to 4K at 30 fps, and will even allow you to take and save photos in the middle of recording a video. We liked the variety of video settings, including the accelerated and overlay video mode. But we were disappointed by the lack of slow-motion features like the TG-5. The W300 Sport features a GPS, altimeter, depth gauge, and point of interest mapping. And like all recent Nikon cameras, the W300 is equipped with the company’s Snapbridge technology.

So you can connect your phone to your camera using NFC, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi for super-easy photo sharing. The Coolpix W300 is available in yellow, black, and orange. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.

It’s the Swiss Army knife of rugged cameras, equipped with light rings around its lens that work like a torch as well as a macro light, allowing you to see what you’re doing underwater as well as keep your subjects illuminated. It has a number of interesting features that make it a camera worthy of interest. Microscope mode allows it to focus at distances as close as 1mm, while the Pocket Night Snap function captures multiple images of a low-light scene in quick succession and blends them together to create a blur-free composite image.

All of this is housed in a case with heavy-duty protection that can remain submerged in up to 14 meters of water for up to 2 hours. A new Ricoh WG-70 has just been launched on the market, but the WG-60 is still the most advantageous. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.

If Olympus and Nikon cameras are too expensive for your budget, the FujiFilm FinePix XP140 might be more to your liking. This camera costs just under $200, making it the best waterproof camera for those on a limited budget. It’s waterproof up to 82 feet deep compared to Olympus, but less than Nikon – it can withstand drops from about 6 feet and can withstand temperatures ranging from 14 degrees to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. The FinePix XP140 has a 16MP sensor, an ISO range of 100-12800, and a 5X optical zoom ranging from 28 to 140mm (35mm equivalent).

It can also shoot 4K videos, but at a low frame rate of 15 frames per second, so videos may appear a bit choppy. A movie mode lets you take pictures with moving elements, and a “Smile Shutter” function will automatically take a picture when you can see everyone’s teeth. It’s also equipped with Bluetooth to make it easy to transfer photos from the camera to your smartphone or tablet. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.

The GoPro Hero8 Black has everything we liked about the previous model: a 12-MP sensor for photos and up to 4K video (at 60 fps), the slot-mo video at 240 fps. But the Hero8 has a brand new design, so you no longer need a case if you want to attach it to an accessory, like a helmet mount. GoPro has also improved the image stabilization feature of the Hero8, making video incredibly smooth. As before, the camera has an impressive voice control system, which means you can control the camera by simply telling it to “start video recording” or “take a picture”. It is also waterproof to 33 feet without the need for an extra case. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.

SeaLife cameras are some of the best waterproof cameras. – without having to buy separate housings and optical ports for a mirrorless camera or DSLR. The ability to be taken to depths of up to 60m and to withstand temperatures down to minus 29°C makes it a very macho camera. But it is also able to take pictures thanks to a large one-inch sensor and the ability to take RAW files.

The camera consists of two parts – allowing you to remove the large red outer casing when you use it on land to use the internal camera (always waterproof). You can buy the camera alone, but if you use it for deep dives, take a look at the different kits, which come with one or two lamps, to illuminate your subject and serve as carrying handles.

The features and price of the DJI Osmo Action make it obvious from the outset that this is an attempt to reduce the price of the GoPro HERO7. Does it work? Like everything else, it’s complicated. The front screen is a godsend, the stabilization is as smooth as the HERO’s, and it’s reasonably priced. That doesn’t mean it’s perfect; there are some high-resolution lag problems, the application can be unreliable, and the Hero’s video is a little flatter, which counts in the professional field when it comes to the score. For an affordable alternative to the HERO7 Black, the Osmo Action is one of the best waterproof cameras.

Sony RX0 II 1” (1.0-type) Sensor Ultra-Compact Camera

While the original Sony RX0 had attracted attention with its one-inch sensor in a tiny body, it was somewhat paralyzed by the fact that to record 4K video, it had to be physically attached to an external recorder. So although it is waterproof, shock-resistant, and all that goes with it, this limitation means that you cannot record 4K videos in these extreme situations. The RX0 II removes this restriction, by recording 4K video internally, and also adds welcome extra features such as a fold-down screen. It’s the most expensive one on this list, but if you need the low-light latitude that a one-inch sensor gives you, it really is a perspective like no other. Overall, this is one of the best waterproof cameras.
