Favorite Compact Housings

We here at Backscatter have been on a quest to find the holly grail in underwater point & shoot cameras. Sometimes you just want to travel light. If you're like us, you want a camera that is perfect for a pocket, beach party, or a two hour scooter dive at the outer pinnacles. We finally rooted out our favorites for 2009. Unlike the thousand other options on the market, we consider these the best underwater cameras available. The low cost cameras in this list offer a minimum of a great housing with essential underwater wide angle lens options. The higher priced options feature cameras with manual controls that intermediate shooters will not outgrow. Please browse our selection and give us a call. We'll help you find the best underwater camera for your goals and budget!
