Top 10 Underwater Camera 2021

Our recommendations for Action and Underwater Cameras for 2021. With and without underwater housing.

AKASO EK7000 Pro 4K Action Camera

An underwater Camera is a Camera you can take with you for Scuba Diving or any other outdoor sport for that matter. Most of them are rated to -30m (100ft) of depth. Some come with and some come without underwater housings.

Nowadays many Action Underwater Cameras film in up to 4K and come with an underwater housing. That’s one reason that nowadays you might not need the big rig and spend thousands of your hard earned money.

Sure there are disadvantages on an action camera compare to the big rig DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras, comparing value and price sometimes an action Camera will do a good job it is compact and easy to travel with.

The emphasis lays on Compact as the small cameras fit in every pants are light and tough.

Due to the Wideangle lenses of the action underwater cameras the minimum object distance (MOD) is very high. MOD is the shortest working distance between the foremost front of the lens and the motive which can still be focused using the focus ring or the automatic focus of the lens. Which means that Action Cameras with their Wideangle lenses have to stay farther away from the motive to make sure the motive stays sharp.
There are some macro and magnification lenses available.

Underwater Cameras without Housing rated to 30m

Nikon W300 Camera

There are Underwater Cameras on the Market which are rated to 30m of depth and not using a housing as for example the Nikon W300 but it also is more expensive than an Action Camera.

Read carefully whats included in the Package! As i mentioned earlier not all Cameras come with a housing and will probably not be rated to the same depth as the ones with housing.

SD and Micro-SD Card

SD Card C10 U3

You’ll need a Class 10 or higher micro SD card mostly between 8GB-64GB Some do not support more than 64GB Cards. Please read instructions of the Camera.

One of the latest and fastest Micro SD Cards available on the Market as of 2020 is the Extreme microSDXC UHS-I Memory Card – C10, U3, V30, 4K, A2. This card can record 4k Videos on to your Camera and comes with an SD-Card Adapter.

Underwater Camera Housing

Underwater Camera Housings for DSLR and Mirrorless Cameras start at around 1500,- US$ and go up to 5000,- US$.

Compact Underwater Camera Housings starting at around 300,- US$ and can go up to 2000,- US$.

If you already own a Camera and you’d like to get an underwater housing for it, it might be possible but you need to get the correct housing for your type of camera, otherwise the Buttons on the outside of the housing might not match the buttons on your camera and you are not able to use the Camera inside the housing.

You need to own a very known brand camera to find a housing. If you own an exotic one you might not find the correct housing for it.

Mobile Phone Cases
