The most popular cameras available today are, no surprise here, built into smartphones. But these do-it-all devices have their photographic limitations, especially for those looking to chronicle their cruising; even with the best cases they’re fragile and susceptible to water damage. 

This is just one of the many reasons we were excited to test the SeaLife 2.0 underwater camera, which didn’t disappoint. We learned that the rugged, pocket-sized camera is crammed with functionality that simply makes sense for boaters.

 First, there’s the 16-megapixel Sony sensor that captures crisp, magazine-worthy images. On the video side, the 1080p footage can be shot at 60 frames per second, meaning you can easily snag a frame-worthy photo from it. And switching between still and video modes couldn’t be easier, thanks to large piano keys on the back that toggle between settings.

Another feature that works well is the built-in Wi-Fi, which allows you to upload photos from your smartphone, laptop, and tablet with a couple clicks. Learn more about the Sealife 2.0 in our exclusive video review here.
