Ruggedized Cameras

By Michael Vatalaro

These video cameras are tough enough to withstand anything you throw at them.

Electronics and water have never played well together, but the latest generation of ruggedized video cameras have turned that dynamic on its head. Now you can record your fishing exploits, watersports, or just a nice cruise by mounting any of these models to your boat — or to yourself — to record from your point of view. Ranging from one-ounce "cigar cams" to full-blown camcorders, it's easy to find a camera that fits your boating style.
