There was a time when having one camera in the family was enough. But as times have changed, it has become almost a necessity not to just have a camera phone, but to also have a high definition camera for the vacations and also a waterproof camera for the beach and pool parties.

But before you plunge into buying a waterproof camera, take a step back and understand which camera will serve your purpose. Not every camera can capture your snorkeling or deep sea diving. Some are quite flimsy and are suited only for the splash photos at the pool.
