The Best Cameras for Fishing - Waterproof, Shock Resistant, and Rugged

Updated on November 14, 2010

Choosing the right camera for your fishing trips is as important as choosing the right fishing gear and tackle. With the proper camera, you can capture those amazing fishing moments to remember and share later.

With so many cameras on the market, how is an angler to choose the best one for fishing. Well I’ll tell you that it’s not easy. The best way to pick the right camera is to be well-informed. So I put together a simple guide on what to look for in a camera for fishing. Educate yourself with the information below to better choose your next photo camera for fishing. Top 6 Cameras for Fishing

What to Look for in a Camera for Fishing

Since we live in the “digital age”, I would prefer a digital camera. It’s nice that you can transfer your pictures to your computer and easily share them by email or anywhere else online. Film cameras are not practical and are more bulky.

A good digital camera for fishing should be water proof. The reason for this is common sense. Fishing is done in and around water. There is a good possibility that your camera can get wet. So if you’re going to use the camera for fishing, get one that’s water proof. There are quite a few digital cameras on the market that are water resistant and can even take underwater photos.

Another thing to look for in a digital camera for fishing is whether it can handle shock. Look for digital cameras that are labeled “shock proof” or “shock resistant”. This simply means the camera can get dropped on a hard surface and still work fine afterwards. This is very important, since the chances of dropping your camera are much higher during fishing. It only takes one drop of a non shock proof camera to break it for good. So go with the shock resistant digital cameras to be on the safe side.

Also, look for a camera that is compact. With all the fishing tackle you will be toting, you don’t need a bulky camera to carry around. The ideal size is one that can easily fit in your pocket. It will take virtually no effort to take your camera along with you fishing.

Image Quality is something to think about as well. You need a digital camera that can take quality pictures. You want your fishing photos to be captured in perfect clarity, especially when you catch that fish of a life time. Look for cameras with higher megapixels and ones that can take good pictures in low light.

Camera Cases

No matter how rugged your camera is, it can still get dents and scratches. A camera case can help protect your camera from unnecessary damage. With a case your camera will look new and fresh for a longer amount of time.
