Olympus Tough TG-3
Adorama price: $349

(Recent $50 price drop!)

Summary: The Olympus Tough TG3 is unique among underwater cameras: It is a system camera! Its fast 25-100mm (35mm equivalent) f/2-4.9 lens can be augmented via an adapter (Adorama price: $20) with a 2x tele extender, which increases its equivalent focal length to 200mm (Adorama price: $99), and a 12mm equivalent fisheye lens (Adorama price: $99). Since fisheye and ultrawide lenses are the optics of choice for many underwater photographers, this makes a lot of sense. Other features include a 12MP CMOS sensor whose lower pixel density holds the promise of better image quality; built-in GPS, a 3-inch, 610k dot resolution LCD monitor, contrast-detection autofocus, quick start-up, 3-way image stabilization, 1080p HD video capture at 30 fps, ISO range of 100-6400, HDR and backlight HDR, a “Microscopic Macro Mode”, improved image stabilization, and an amazing 30fps burst rate at full resolution. Wi-Fi is now onboard as well. Available in Black and Red

A great compromise between a disposable and a super expensive pro underwater camera is to invest in a compact digital camera which is also waterproof. Having done some research this comes out on top; it has a built in compass, GPS and barometer telling you where, what direction and how deep you are just in case you get lost down there! The camera is even freezer proof down to -10 Degrees so if you want to take it ice fishing feel free – just remember I wont be joining you for that trip even if you’re offering me a wetsuit.
