I’m following up with one of my fave pics from the Sony. (Also, it was raining outside just to give you an idea of the lighting!)

@MrsPinkPeony:  I love my gopro! It comes with a waterproof case (works really well) and also a non/waterproof case so that you can use it to capture sound in video above water. With a gopro, if you want to take it underwater in the ocean, it would serve you well to buy the dive housing so that you get clear video/photo.

We have the Nikon Coolpix underwater camera and it’s awesome!! My Fiance took it surfing and snorkelling and got some great pics. It was around $400 and totally worth it.

I have the Olympus stylus tough  too… I have had mine for at least 3 years and use mine during white water kayaking… all my friends have the same camera. We also used it in the ocean in florida this past winter and it worked out great!

@MrsPinkPeony: Whichever camera you chose, I HIGHLY recommend rinsing it off with non-sea water right after using it in the ocean (use tap water or bottled water, something). I did extensive research on multiple underwater cameras & read awesome reviews but quite a few said to rinse off with “normal water” after using in sea walter due to the high salt content. Found those comments on varying camera brands. Have fun & post your underwater pics on here… I love underwater pics :).

In a pool

 

On a rainy/windy/wavy day (TONS of waves and dark clouds)

 

On a sunny day. This fish was pretty far from us, so my zoom worked wonderfully

 

Another one on a darker/cloudy day. Featuring Fiance

It’s the same one I used and linked to on here. I think it is MUUUCH better.

This photo won’t post for me, but here’s the link. I have to put it here because it’s one of my favorites!!

Same cloudy day as above. The choice was between having your lens as open as possible to get as much light in or having it snap the picture as quick as possible to capture movement. In this case, I chose the first option because it was darker. It can capture AMAZING movement, but it has to be bright. This is the case with most point and shoot cameras. Also.. flash wasn’t an option here 🙂 

 

 With flash! Not bad. But it scared them all away.

@canthugallcats: said about rinsing it off. It’s like with swimsuits, that salt (or chlorine) will ruin your suit!
