Fuji Film Waterproof Quicksnap Disposable
Available at Rite Aid, Target, etc.
These are the first water cameras most of us used when we made our first attempts at taking surf shots of our friends. Not much has changed with these cameras over the past decade other than the fact that you can get them in the digital variety for roughly the same price. We tried an old-school point-and-shoot film camera with no frills, just a button to shoot the photo and a knob to wind to advance the film. The shots taken on this thing are literally hit-or-miss, as you need to be about five feet from the surfer to get anything usable. Overall quality isn’t that bad, but you won’t be getting a cover of TransWorld SURF any time soon using this camera. All in all, these cameras are fun, and the fact that they’re pretty much indestructible is a good thing.
