I currently have a digital camera but this thing from Speedo, i like how it looks and the concept of it. I am not really fond of digital camera’s but I think I want to have one of these and It’d just be so nice to have a camera that can handle going anywhere that I can. Wouldn’t it be nice to go for a swim and be able to take your camera with you? Well thankfully Speedo has a camera meant just for the water lovers out there. lol.
The camera will take all sorts of pictures as long as you only bring it 3 feet under the water. If you happen to accidentally let go of it while it’s underwater, this camera won’t sink. Instead it’ll just float to the surface. It has a 5 megapixel sensor, 4x digital zoom, 2.4 inch LCD screen, SD memory card slots and to finish it off it’s capable of shooting VGA quality video at 30fps. These come in green and pink, to pick one up it’ll cost you about $138 through Amazon.

According to Makoto Kimura-company president, Nikon wants to create a whole “new market” with its next big idea. Kimura says it’s time for digital cameras to move with the times and Nikon will be ready to take up its usual leadership position. Nikon wants to join a growing ranks of mirrorless interchangeable lens shooters that passage over a gap between full-fledged DSLR and pocket-friendly compact cameras.
According to EVIL (Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable Lens) cameras have already proven that in order to get superior low light performance, a larger sensor is absolutely necessary, and unless Nikon has suddenly defined the laws of science/physics.
Looks interesting right? for me, that’s actually not a bad idea. I would love to be able to have the quality of a full-fledged DSLR when I need it, and the portability of a point-and-shoot anytime else.
