Top 6 beach-safe underwater cameras

Which one is the ultimate beach accessory this year?

Fujifi lm finepix z33wp

Fujifilm FinePix Z33WP

The FinePix Z33WP is fun, fashionable and inexpensive. Its depth rating (limited to 2 hours) is just 3m, though, and it's neither shockproof nor freezeproof. But it is ideal as a 'beach' camera for family holidays.

Key points:

  • Waterproof to 3m but for up to 2 hours only
  • Lowest operating temperature 0 degrees – it's not freezeproof
  • Don't drop this camera – it's not shockproof.
  • Inexpensive but stylish 'fun' camera that's also easy to use.
  • Slow image playback, zoom and panning
  • Definition adequate for snaps but lags behind rest.
