The JVC Everio camcorder (GZ-R10) is one of Kev’s favorite underwater video cameras. We had a blast using it in Roatan, Honduras and can’t wait for our upcoming trip to get more footage. Here’s one that is certified refurbished that looks like a good deal.
We bought this digital camcorder on a whim at Costco and have been very happy with it.
The JVC Everio Camcorder is:
- easy to carry
- has a good battery life
- water proof, dust proof, shock proof and freeze proof
This video quality for this particular underwater video camera is good for the price. It has a flip out rotating 3 inch LCD touchscreen and also takes still pictures. To turn the camcorder on you flip open the touchscreen and close it to shut off. It has less internal memory than most but we think it’s still good for the price.
Reviews on this camcorder are mixed so you’ll have to see for yourself. Costco doesn’t seem to carry it any longer but you can easily get free shipping when you buy it on Amazon.
Check the specs for yourself, then choose the right underwater camcorder that best fits YOU!
With all of our underwater video cameras we rinse and dry after each use to keep it performing well. They haven’t failed us yet!
There is a really cool underwater video camera kit that I came across that includes the JVC Everio GZ-R10 plus SDHC card, case, cleaning kit and more. It also comes in black. Looks like they are moving quick so I would grab one if you’re looking to purchase an underwater video camera.
If you have never been snorkeling, we highly recommend it. It’s always a new experience every time we go. The world under water is like nothing I have ever experienced before.
And with a great underwater camcorder, you’ll capture a lifetime of memories.
