The Absolute Best Underwater Cameras of 2022

30/06/2022

Whether you're a surfer, swimmer, snorkeler, Sea-Doo-er or just plain love water, getting awesome underwater video is the ultimate way to share your submersion missions . Of course, you need an underwater camera to do so, and you know whats even better? A waterproof camera that thrives in the depths. Enter: GoPro.

GoPros are made for getting wet

Right out of the box, GoPro cameras, including HERO10 and HERO9 Black, are waterproof to 33 feet. That means you can hit the waves, snorkel, swim or even dive without any additional gear. Strap it on with the Hand + Wrist Strap and dive into a gorgeous lake, stick it on your surfboard with a Surfboard Camera Mount mount or simply take your GoPro underwater with The Handler, which is part-selfie stick, part-flotation device and 100% made for water shots.

Go deeper with GoPro underwater camera accessories

If want to go past the 33 feet mark with your GoPro, you can do that too. Just grab a HERO10 & HERO9 Protective Housing + Waterproof Case and you can take either camera down to 196 feet. This waterproof camera case also protects your GoPro from debris, so when you get out of the water and want to embark immediately on an off road adventure, you're all set.

If depth isn't your game, but action-packed water sports like surfing are, you can make sure to never lose your GoPro in the water with the HERO10 & HERO9 Floaty. This bright orange case keeps your GoPro visible and afloat, adds padded protection and includes a tether point for more security. You can also buy this paired with a Bite Mount to start getting the best underwater POV shots.

Get the look you really want with underwater filters

Shooting underwater means capturing with less available light, and according to science, this means the colors captured in photo or video content don't always come out exactly how you see them. GoPro underwater cameras can correct this in two ways. First, HERO10 Black and HERO9 Black both use advanced processing to automatically improve white balance and correct color.

But if you're going deeper than 33 feet, you might need some added help to keep your color balance right. That's where the second option comes in: using a PolarPro DiveMaster Filter Kit. This kit has three filters you can snap onto your GoPro underwater housing-one for blue water, one for green water and one for shallow water. Using these filters will give you the vibrant underwater color you're looking for.

Recommended settings for underwater shoots

Before you get in the water, it's a good idea to adjust your presets and lock your screen. From there, you can point, shoot and let the GoPro do the rest.

You can watch the video above to get some advice from GoPro Family Member Jake Rich on his recommended settings for underwater shooting. As you're doing so, remember that Shutter Speed and ISO are dependent on the available light, so here are the easiest settings to start with:

Shutter Speed: Try a lower Shutter Speed to allow more light in

White Balance: Native

Minimum ISO: 400

Maximum ISO: 800

Sharpness: Medium
