Water Proof Camera: A Must when Traveling

Have you ever had a camera that you just adore? I do, the Kodak PlaySport (Zx5) HD Waterproof Pocket Video Camera – Red (2nd Generation).

Last year I found my self in Honduras climbing waterfalls and snorkeling in amazing reefs and I didn’t have a water proof camera. Trust me, you do not want this to be you. I only wish I had this camera then. After doing some research I decided to get the Kodak PlaySport.

I could go on and on about why I love this camera, but I will give you the short list.

  • Water proof: You can actually swim under water with this camera.
  • Durable: It’s made well and it’s got a great shape. It’s like holding your phone.
  • Picture quality: The pictures I have taken with this camera have come out bright and clear.
  • Video: Yes, that’s right it even takes video!
  • Social sharing: You can assign pictures to automatically go to Facebook, Twitter, emailed to your friend, YouTube,and more.
  • Built in rechargeable battery

After using this camera the last few months I now consider it one of my must have items while traveling.

Here are some other waterproof cameras, but I don’t have experience with them.

    Congratulations, you are living my dream. Just kidding, but I would love to blog about travels. Unfortunately I have been in school the past 3 years and traveling has not happened. Anyway, I agree with you about the camera. I have a really nice camera, but I hesitate to take it some places because of the risk of damage. I will have to check out the camera, thanks!

    With all the stories about child abuse by nannies and caretakers that one has been hearing about off late, I couldn’t help but install a nanny cam to make sure my kids are safe. I tried GotoCamera’s free software, which is easy to set up and even easier to use. They have a free version of their software. However, I upgraded to their Premium service, which costs about $4 a month.
