Whether or not you are a diver, having a waterproof camera in this hobby is a nice perk. But more often than not, they are too expensive to even consider. For $50 though, the new Intova Duo Sport Action Cam combines low cost with high performance making it much more approachable.
The Duo Sport works both in and out of the water and its under-$50 price tag is incredible when you figure you can capture high definition video at 720p resolution and snap still photo up to 5MP resolution. For those of you that are accident inclined around water or looking for a camera for the beach or for your next dive or snorkeling adventure, the Duo Sport camera is waterproof up to 100 feet and has a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery with up to 2 hours of battery life.
The camera features a built-in, full-color 1.77 in. LCD screen so lining up that shot with a dive mask underwater is simple. Although not as dynamic as other point-and-shoot cameras, the Duo has 4x optical zoom with handy features like burst mode for continuous action shots. The Duo Sport has a removable housing that is compact, rugged and positively buoyant so it floats. If you want to match it to your outfit, you can get in in four colors: black, orange, aqua and white. There is also a standard tripod mounting on the underside of the camera housing that can be use both under and above water.
You don’t need to be a diver to enjoy this camera as it is the perfect camera to get some in-tank shots, take to the beach, take on the boat, water park or backyard.
