Nearly everyone has a camera phone these days, and the iPhone5 is pretty much everywhere. While it definitely can fill in the gaps when you can’t carry your regular camera, it does have a few drawbacks, mainly in that it costs so much that you don’t want to risk getting it wet when you’re near the water. Fortunately there are quite a few companies out there offering waterproof cases that can be used in or around the water for $50 or more, depending on whether you’re hanging our on the surface or wanting to go for a dive.
It’s worth considering, you likely already carry your iPhone with you, so why not let it double as a waterproof camera the next time you and the kids are in the water? Check out this link for some recommendations.
