  • An underwater camera for traveling families

    2010-09-30

    Now that many cell phones and smartphones come equipped with high-resolution cameras, many travelers have been avoiding purchasing the expensive gadgets. Yet those cameras, while convenient, can't offer the same quality that a dedicated camcorder does.

    Another disadvantage for cell phones is that they're useless in underwater situations. So for families that are planning some tropical travel that might include some scuba or snorkeling, an underwater camera can be an important travel gadget purchase.

    According to AOL's Gadling, those travelers may want to look at the new JVC Picsio GC-WP10 HD Waterproof camcorder. This new device allows for shooting in up to ten feet of water, but provides some great quality on land. The news source praised the gadget's value at under $200.

    The Picsio comes with a number of features that make editing a breeze. The back of the camera is completely dominated by a screen, making for easy playback, and the touch screen menu can switch between 720 and 1080p on the fly. Once travelers get home, the device includes editing software that allows them to upload to a number of popular websites like YouTube in one click.

    For travelers looking to make some memories on their vacation, the new Picsio could be the perfect solution.
