Best Waterproof Digital Cameras

A lot of people worry about bringing their digital camera outside in order to capture their greatest outdoor feats. They don’t want to get their camera wet, scratched or even damaged, which is understandable. Though, with today’s advanced technology you can shoot underwater, stay in very high/low temperature and even drop your camera on the floor, you will still be able to capture each and every moment of your outdoor adventure. Here are 3 of the best and newest waterproof digital camera models available right now:

1. The Nikon 1 AW1

The world’s first waterproof, shockproof, interchangeable lens camera.

This camera would survive a drop of about 6.6 feet onto a hard surface! Relatively more expensive than the GoPro Hero4 Session, this 14 megapixel mirrorless model is waterproof up to 49 feet for only 60 minutes, which is something to consider when staying under water for a long period of time shooting.

2. The GoPro Hero4 Session

If you need one of the tiniest digital camera, you can buy the GoPro Hero4 Session which is waterproof up to 33 feet.

All the GoPro technologies powered into the smallest, lightest and most invisible camera, featuring a rugged and waterproof design as well as only one button control. From 1080p60 video to 8MP photos it is certainly keeping up with its predecessor, the GoPro hero4 Silver.

3. Olympus TG-3

A full shockproof camera, the Olympus TG-3 goes up to 50 feet underwater which makes it one of the best waterproof cameras as of today.

Pretty much everything but bulletproof, the Olympus is meant to survive any kind of abuse such as going through 220 pounds of pressure, or even a huge 7-foot drop. It also goes down to 14 degrees Fahrenheit if you’re planning to go hiking in Alaska!
