I’ve already got a Sanyo EC1 waterproof digital camera but now Sanyo has gone and made some even better ones. I’m salivating over here. These would be perfect for the next season of Wired Kayaker podcasts. Click the image to read all about these cameras. If you can’t wait till the new ones arrive you might want to check out these existing models from Sanyo.

    My experience with underwater cameras in the past has not been good. I purchased one just for snorkeling and expected a drasticallly improved photo, but found that the cheap disposable underwater cameras were just as good (or poor as it may be).

    Kayak Escape,
    If you are doing actual underwater photography then these probably wouldn’t be the best for you but if you were kayaking and wanted to mount one to your kayak and not have to worry about it getting damaged from the water then these are perfect solutions.

  3. Ken Kayaker says:

    These are a great addition for any kayaker to have. What a better way to capture your excursions.

    It has been great for me so far. Check out my podcasts for that.

  5. cohnsey says:

    How much are the new ones going to cost?

  6. BenSpark says:

    I’m not sure on that yet, probably somewhere between $299 and $599 depending upon features.

  7. greek says:

    thanks for the article.
    in Greece, the competition is not so advanced and when a product first arrives, it costs much more money compared to the rest of Europe and USA.

    for now, i will keep on borrowing my mates camera when i do kayak in northern Greece :)

  8. Wow. That is new to me.

    Srihari,
    Sanyo continues to come out with better and better cameras, I love the new Waterproof ones.

  10. BenSpark says:

    Hi Greek,
    If it works for you then borrowing is a good alternative. I most likely will not be getting one of these until they drop in price.

  11. greek says:

    thanks for the answer :)

    please write a review (or Feedback? sorry my english is not so good) sometime when you get it!

  12. BenSpark says:

    If I get one I will certainly do a review.

  13. Sunny says:

    I always wanted to buy a underwater cover for my Sony T3, but the camera died before I could get one :(

  14. BenSpark says:

    Well, with these ones you don’t need a cover at all.

  15. Roger says:

    Something I’ve never really though about using but looking at your article it seems that it’s something I would seriously consider buying. I’ll definately take a look into these.

  16. BenSpark says:

    Roger,
    I’ve had Sanyo cameras for a while and they are pretty nice ones. These HD ones look awesome.

  17. randi says:

    i have used SANYO but not an underwater camera must give it try
    anyone having this new version?

  18. BenSpark says:

    Randi,
    I don’t think this version is out yet, I can’t find them anywhere.

  19. Great! This was what I was searching for this morning. Thanks for letting me know that this product was available.

  20. BenSpark says:

    Barry,
    Hopefully they will be available for purchase soon.

  21. Sharon says:

    These look awesome, I’m in the market for a new HD camera but I wonder if the waterproof ones have all the features that a “normal” camcorder has. Do they have a comparison between these and some other non-waterproof models anywhere that you know of?

  22. BenSpark says:

    Sharon,
    I’m not sure about a comparison. You can check out Cnet or other camera sites for that. I think the non waterproof and the waterproof for Sanyo offer the same features however.
