Waterproof Cameras

Waterproof cameras are popular amongst snorkelers and vacationioners, but they can also make a great secondary camera for underwater photographers. While the current max depth of 33 feet/ 10 meters inhibits their ability to be primary dive cameras, most models have housings that allow you to reach recreational dive limits.  Either way, waterproof cameras can be perfect for wet boat rides or when you need to jump into the water quickly to catch that passing underwater photography moment.
