The disposable camera used to be the best way to capture images because all you had to do was purchase the seemingly inexpensive camera, take all the needed pictures and then take them to have them developed; then you just throw away the camera and buy a new one. Several years ago however, the digital camera evolved and completely changed the way images are taken and viewed. After the digital camera came into play, advances to the digital camera were made and thus the waterproof digital camera was born to allow people with a more rigorous lifestyle to have a digital camera safely. What are the differences though between a regular digital camera and a waterproof digital camera?
The most obvious difference that comes to mind can be found in the name of one of the cameras; the waterproof digital camera. The waterproof digital camera is naturally going to be waterproof to a certain degree; either able to withstand becoming a little wet or being able to be completely submerged underwater. The regular digital camera cannot get even slightly wet because if it does, then it may not work anymore after that becoming wet. A waterproof digital camera can be taken just about anywhere safely, where as caution would have to be exerted if a regular digital camera were taken to a risky place.
The waterproof camera, while being able to be taken just about anywhere, does not have an image quality to match that of a regular digital camera. A regular digital camera takes the best, high quality images while the waterproof digital camera’s image quality is compromised to make it waterproof. A regular digital camera also has more features to enhance the quality of the pictures captured, while the waterproof digital camera does not have as many.
Most of the waterproof digital cameras on the market currently are being built stronger so that they can withstand even more than just getting wet. One of the big problems with digital cameras is that they are constantly dropped, which can quickly end the life of that camera; a lot of the waterproof digital cameras are being made to withstand being dropped and abused. Some of the waterproof digital cameras are being made to withstand being crushed and some even being freezeproof. A waterproof digital camera is built to combat a rugged lifestyle.
Lifestyle is about the main factor that determines what kind of digital camera a person should get. If a person lives a pretty safe, relaxed lifestyle in a big city, then a nice regular digital camera would probably be a safe option to buy. If a person lives a rugged and rigorous lifestyle and participates in multiple outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, boating, mountain biking and many others, then a regular digital camera would probably not be the best camera due to it probably ending up lifeless after a short while. Everything mentioned above should be coupled into lifestyle choices, then a decision can be made as to which digital camera should be bought.
