NOOB, to Wet Pixel, Need Underwater Camera with Bigger Screen

Recommended Posts

First I only snorkel but an serious about it. Caribbean, Africa, Australia & South Pacific in 4 months. Only time I go underwater is when I am Great White Shark Cage Diving & that's not more than 10-12 feet.

 

On my 2nd or 3rd Olympus TG but I'm old (wear multifocal lenses in my mask) & that stupid 3" screen is getting darn hard for me to see. I don't mind spending the money for something if it has a bigger screen because I can always share it with my daughter who does dive. I also do a good bit of night snorkeling.

 

Current set up is Olympus on tray with 2 GoBe Lights & GoPro Hero4 Black on the side.

 

Is there anything out there that is an underwater camera, even if I have to go to a housing, with a much larger viewing screen?

 

Thanks for any advice.

Have a look at the EasyDive Leo3 housing for the iPhone 6/7. Not bad camera these days and a big bright 5.5" screen on the back.

Sorry Bamagrad75. best idea I could think of. you are out of luck I think, unless you want to spend $2000+ on an external 7" viewfinder for a $3000 camera.

 

Cant find any camera with a screen bigger than 3.5"

Yeah, I came to the same conclusion as Richard. I don't think there are cameras out there with larger screens. Hasselblad maybe. Gulp.

Also,

 

I see that the Leo3 housing actually takes more than just iPhones....

iOS: Apple (Iphone, all updated models to the Last iOS version from i-phone 5 to 7plus).

Samsung (S6 and S7 Edge),
Huawei (P8 Lite and P9 Lite),
Sony xperia Z2.

For other models of android smartphones, the compatibility check is required by Easydive.

You may consider using a underwater magnifier, nauticam proposes some for compact housing, rgblue propose something too, don't know for other manufacturers. And maybe on diy side using some ucl165 lens in front of the screen with arms.

 

Did not tried any of this, just pointing out options. (I plan to try the diy way one day)

 

Cheers
