This is a camera that works perfectly fine underwater, be it saltwater or lake water or any water. These cameras also give you the freedom to take pictures where other cameras won’t, and they are often called weatherproof cameras.
Water-proof cameras are specially manufactured and designed to be completely tight, giving no room for not even a drop of water. This includes the battery compartment of the camera, which is well protected. It has a locking mechanism that makes sure it is well sealed before you take a dip into the pool or beach.
Resembling a standard compact camera, the difference between the two cameras is that one is water-proof, and the other isn’t. Water-proof compacts have bright colours so that you can find them easier to locate when you lose it underwater.
They also have an impressive optical zoom lens, making you take pictures of underwater creatures far from you. The lens gives you the best quality, regardless of how far the creature is.
