Waterproof Video Camera
A waterproof video camera also called a waterproof camcorder is a specially
designed camera which enables people to record video underwater. While amateur cameras can be taken to a certain
depth more professional cameras have better resolutions and are designed to withstand gut wrenching underwater
pressure. There is a wide array of water proof cameras which include cameras from brands like Sanyo
Finding the right underwater camcorder takes a little bit of time and a lot of
knowledge about how these cameras work. There are a number of things you should look at prior to deciding upon a
waterproof video camera.
This is probably one of the most important aspects of your video camera. The
resolution of your underwater camera will determine the vividness and dept of the captured video. While a standard
definition camera may suffice for most people primarily because it is cheap, those who want better quality or even
professional quality may want to opt for High Definition cameras.
This is another very important aspect of your underwater video camera. While most
cameras come equip with standard 10x optical zoom, it may not suffice for instances where you want to zoom up on
something which is further than twenty of thirty feet. 10x optical zoom may only suffice for videos where everyone
is close enough to be captured in vivid quality, for more adventurous shots you may want to invest in something
with more zoom.
If you are a casual diver you can get away with anything that withstands a depth
of a few feet. However if you are a pro or want to capture images from the deepest depths of the sea you will want
to purchase something that can withstand more depth. In most cases the depth a camera can handle will be given on
the camera’s housing.
When you are underwater it can be hard to stabilize your camera and this is where
image stabilization technology comes in. This technology helps to eliminate the effects of jitters and sudden
movement of your hand on the captured video. However you should always make sure that you purchase a camera with
good image stabilization especially if you are going to film really deep.
