5 Waterproof Digital Cameras

Like if this guide is helpful

Written by mmcgraw

waterproof digital camera is not always needed, but if you are going to be at the pool or the beach, you'll definitely want one. You may not plan to go into the water with the camera, but if you are wet when you use the camera, you don't want to ruin it. Kids are also notorious for splashing water in places you do not want water. 

If you go out on a boat or have the opportunity to go snorkeling, you will be very glad you have a waterproof camera. I got some awesome shots of turtles in Hawaii because I had a waterproof camera with me when we were snorkelling.
