Best Waterproof Cameras

Gone are the days when a camera’s quality was determined by the lens quality or number of megapixels alone. With the onset of social media and the need to keep up with trends, cameras are now being manufactured with a newer, more competitive feature; being waterproof. Waterproof cameras have taken the limits off sharing on social media and having fun. So if you are an avid water sports fan, or are looking for a fun weekend in the surf and sand, these are our four top picks for the best waterproof cameras you might want to try.

  1. Olympus Tough TG-5

Most social bloggers seem to agree that this is a contender for the top spot in underwater cameras. It has an ergonomic design that is chunky with well-designed controls that are great for any weather. It is waterproof up to a depth of 15 m or 50 feet. It is also shockproof from heights of 2.1m or 7 feet, while it is freeze-proof till lows of -10 degrees C or 14 degrees Fahrenheit. While the manufacturer oddly decided to drop the pixel count, the resolution drops a bit to 4k for video, but this delivers better noise performance. The camera is made up of a temperature sensor, GPS sensor, pressure, and compass. The data that is gathered on the camera can be displayed using the Olympus Image Track app as videos or images.

  1. Nikon Coolpix W300

This camera works well up to depths of 30m or 100 feet, which is the maximum depth that an Advanced Water Diving certificate will allow you. It is also shock-proof from a maximum height of 2.4m or 8 feet, and freezeproof down to the lows of -10 degrees Celsius or 14 degrees Fahrenheit. It comes fully-loaded with a GPS system, Wi-Fi connectivity, 4K video and a world map that is interactive. It also has an underwater depth gauge plus an altimeter. This camera also offers high resolution and a 921k Dot OLED monitor.

  1. GoPro HERO6 Black

This compact camera has great resolution with 12MP and is waterproof up to a depth of 10 m or 33 feet without housing. Being a relatively new entrant in this market, it has not been rated as shock-proof or freeze-proof yet. The GoPro HERO6 makes use of the GoPro QuikStories Feature to cut and share short clips quickly together.

  1. Rico WG-50

This underwater camera is a compact and nifty buy. It has features that include full HD video resolution and 16 MP camera resolution. It is also crush-proof up to a hefty 220 lbs, and can withstand water depths of up to 14 m or 45 feet. It remains freeze-proof down to the lows of -10 degrees Celsius or 14 degrees Fahrenheit.


These 4 underwater cameras are our top picks. There are many other nifty and compact cameras in the market that match up to these. But with these, you are covered on your surf and sand adventures this summer.
