Taking picture underwater has been so convenience nowadays. Especially true when you can actually bring your camera and dip it inside the water, and snap some cool blue underwater scenery with it. AgfaPhoto, a company that come to the front podium and introduced us to their DC-600uw underwater and outdoor camera that can resist any kind of water pressures with depths up to 10 meters.
The camera comes equipped with 6MP and 2.4-inch display + digital zoom. Well, I have to admit this camera didn’t have a super detail 12MP sensor like Pentax Optio W80 Digital Camera, but at least it can do pretty well inside the water.
Afga DC-600uw also has a face tracking function as the extra features. It will be able to automatically recognizes faces and separate your face from the crowd and make you the prime object to focus on. AgfaPhoto DC-600uw underwater camera will be available this July with price tag of $210.
