Water Proof Camera


For anyone in the market for a waterproof camera that doesn't want to spend $300 to $350. A new camera has just been introduced to the market. I read an article in the Winter 2010 issue of Flyfishing & Tying Journal which described the Fujifilm WP.

The Fuji Finepix Z33 WP Waterproof Camera with 10 megapixels and 3x optical zoom is available at for about $140. I'm not sure if you'll get the color you want for that price, but what the heck. The retail price is listed at $179.95 and comes with a kit that includes the camera, battery and battery charger.

The camera is small enough to easily fit in a shirt pocket (3 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 7/8" thick). It is completely waterproof down to 3 meters and fully capable of taking pictures underwater.

The camera has an internal memory card of 50 megabytes but will also accept a SD data card. They say with a 2-gigabyte card with the camera set at its finest-quality setting, that you can store over 400 pictures.

The camera takes a Litium-ion battery and the battery has to be charged by the battery charger included in the kit. It is recommended to buy a second battery.

Sounds good to me. Beats My $300 Optio that has a cracked view screen that nobody will fix.

Can't wait to get that underwater shot releasing a nice fish.
