Best Underwater Photo & Video Cameras of 2021


It's the photographer, not the camera, that takes the photo. But that doesn't stop "what camera should I buy?" from being the top question that we hear. So the dedicated photographers at Bluewater decided to get together and compile some finely crafted lists of the best underwater photo & video cameras sorted by category. Whether you are shooting a compact camera, DSLR camera, mirrorelss camera, or smartphone housing - you really can't go wrong. Modern camera technology is now so advanced that it's often times hard to distinguish the photos between vastly different camera systems. That being said, we believe that every camera serves its purpose. It's our job to match your needs to a camera's function. We hope the following artices are educational, and if you need some extra help in deciding what underwater camera is best for you - our very knowledgeable sales staff is here to help! Email us at and we'll run through which camera we think is right for you based on our real world, underwater experience. These are the Best Underwater Photo & Vide Cameras in 2021!
