If you’re regularly travelling around the world, and enjoy taking photos of your travels, odds are you’ll find yourself in positions where your camera might get a bit wet. Now some might say the easiest way to deal with this is to place your camera in a waterproof case, but we tend to differ.
A Case Against the Case
A case tends to distort the image, can be very clunky and doesn’t protect your camera while putting it in and taking it out said waterproof case. When you’re travelling you want your luggage to be light and durable. You don’t want it to take up too much space in your travel hiking daypack and mostly importantly, you don’t want to worry about it getting water damaged. The photograph is nice to take, but it’s ultimately about enjoying your trip.
To solve this problem various popular camera brands manufacture purpose built waterproof cameras. Now we’re not specifically talking about dive cameras or underwater photography cameras here. Even if you can dive with some of these waterproof cameras, it’s not necessarily the intended purpose of every waterproof camera, so make sure about which one you’re purchasing and what kind of water and depths they can handle.
As a side note, we’re covering digital cameras on this post, because the majority of them are and they tend to be the best option when travelling.
