If you shoot at the beach or in bad weather, fears for the sensitive camera technology.You are worry-free with an underwater camera or outdoor camera.These models can be impressed neither by water, sand still falling.We present the ten best and toughest cameras.

Sturdy construction, but smaller zoom

The constantly updated leaderboard shows you the ten outdoor cameras with the best test rating. Further information provide the detailed reviews about each model and the photo gallery with all outdoor cameras in the test . The test results of all digital cameras can be found in the extensive, comprehensive more than 100 models leaderboard .

Much comfort equipment

A simple operation is available for all models in the first place. There are a variety of scene modes and usually also a program that automatically selects the appropriate mode. You can manually intervene at almost any outdoor camera shooting settings. Because outdoor cameras are designed for easy shooting possible in all situations. Videos filmed many outdoor cameras with HD Ready resolution (720p), full HD resolution has already been set for the expensive equipment. Two other aspects you should consider when buying decision: The speed of the autofocus decides whether snapshots are possible with the camera or not. Set the camera in less than 0.5 seconds sharp, we speak of snapshot-capable. Still does not meet all outdoor cameras this requirement. Second, additional equipment be helpful: Some outdoor cameras advertise with GPS, compass and barometer. These instruments provide additional information about each photo, which you can use on the computer in post-production: about the location, height or direction of the recording.

Best mail-in film developer for digital files?

Hi everyone,
I'm soliciting advice for an online mail-in film developer (or one local to me in Minneapolis/St Paul). I have 7 rolls of 35mm of varying types... Koadk 800 color, Fuji 800 color, Tmax 400 b&w, etc. Some of these were taken in an underwater camera but I don't think that has any processing implications.
I'd like to send them in for developing and receive back high-resolution digital negative scans, and the negatives, but no prints. Can anyone recommend a good place to get this done? Thanks!

  • Avatar How's My Hair? What is the best waterproof digital camera currently on the market?
    Jun 28, 2008 by How's My Hair? | Posted in Cameras

    I'm a little skeptical on what I should get. Whenever I plan on buying a digital camera all I look for is reviews reviews reviews.

    Any suggestions on what I should get? I was thinking on the Olympus Stylus 1 …s durable, but then again I'm skeptical.

    Btw I'm going to be using this camera for underwater picture taking only, I already have an SLR and a normal point and shoot for regular shots.

    Thanks :]

    • Ah, best P&S underwater camera ... yes the Olympus is one of the better P&S underwater camera.

      Scientists use underwater housing that can cost nearly double the cost of the camera inside ... usually a nice $2,000 to $10,000 camera.

  • Avatar Crissy What is the best underwater digital camera?
    Aug 24, 2010 by Crissy | Posted in Cameras

    I am looking for an everyday point and shoot digital camera that can fit in my pocket and withstand some water. Olympus Stylus Tough series seems great except all reviews say photos are not sharp and are too soft. Canon D10 says photo quality is great but camera is big and ugly. Any first hand suggestions? I would like to keep the price under $300. I am currently using a Canon G9 as my daily camera but want something smaller.

    • If you read the conclusion of a group test here, it says that it recommends the Canon D10 and Panasonic TS1 over the others: Pentax W60 happens to be the runner-up, and it should be considered as well if you prefer looks over function.

      Have fun and good luck!

  • Avatar L F What is the best float strap for an underwater digital camera?
    May 09, 2012 by L F | Posted in Cameras

    I read a few reviews about a float strap for a digital camera. Which is the best one? I am looking for the one that really works well and comfortable while you are snorkeling in the water.

    • Personally, I have tested a dozen differnt camera float straps over the past three months for a new $300 underwater camera. First, avoid the Chums Waterproof Camera Float. While it looks nice, it has been prone to poor s …p with, test it in the bathtub before the open water, and pull at all the seams firmly to make sure it's well assembled.
      I personally like the surprisinglly inexpensive CowboyStudio strap (<$6). It's at Amazon:
