Top 6 “Naked” Waterproof Compact Cameras for the Beach!

By / 2 years ago / Photography, Travel / No Comments

More than 95% of cameras designed today are not made to go too near to water, or submerge in the water. Maybe you will say water sports are too extreme for most people on this planet, but we are sure that we all love to hang out by the beach, swimming pools, snorkelling in crystal clear water and wish to have a camera that we could carry in the water without the worry of frying it.

Of course there are specialised underwater camera casings for a big number of camera models in the market, but it also means additional cost and bulkiness to lug it around too. Not to mention it is fragile to handle as well.

We look at top 6 “Naked” waterproof compact cameras in the market without the need of casings which could go as deep as 30 metres, goes as cold as minus 10 degree and could be dropped as high as 2 metres. The fun doesn’t stop there, as you’ll also find many rugged cameras come packed with features such as GPS location tagging and Wi-Fi connectivity, all for under RM1500!

So don’t let your camera hold you back!
