Underwater Video Cameras
I was wondering what everyone uses to shoot out in the water. I want something that isn't too expensive, but gets a solid video...Thanks ahead of time for the help...Im looking to spend like 200 bucks (I know not Much for photography) Thanks again
I know its not QUALITY video, but its not bad... but you can pick up a Flip Video Recorder + housing for I think like $160.
I have a Pentax Optio W60.Its 10 Megapixels.Its also got video and underwater video.Small camera but packs a good punch.I've used it in 49 degree water with no problems.It cost about $260.
Ya, the Flip Video camera is going to be your only option for something that cheap. I dont think the video quality is too good, but the cameras are really small and should be very easy to shoot.
If you want to do it right, you are going to spend $800 or so on a custom made water housing to fit a good HD camera ($400 - $800).
if your camera small enough try putting it in two condoms, did that on my still camera and got some really good shots
i have an olympus u720 (i think, i know its olympus)
it's video isn't the best but it's pretty good. its 10 megapixels so it gets solid still pictures.
got a job...thanks for the advice...i just dont want to spend more then it would cost for a board.
