While the EasyShare Sport by Kodak is not the leading waterproof digital camera available, it’s a worthy competitor for its price point. The camera features a 12 megapixel resolution, the option of speedy photo sharing, and a full 1 year warranty. When you put together the price point, durability, and style of this camera, we think it is the perfect choice for a child or teenager that is looking for a camera to capture underwater and vacation fun! Being that it is waterproof it will also hold up in rain and if it’s subject to an unexpected spill.
When looking at some of our other underwater camera selections you will see that we recommend more than a 12mp. However, with the use of the underwater white balance function, you can still enjoy photos that are detailed and sharp with this camera.
Per its name the EasyShare Sport gives you the ability to share your underwater vacation fun in only a few quick steps. The camera allows you to quickly identify the photos that you want to upload to your computer to share on all of your social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. You can also set up your EasyShare to auto upload to a Kodak Pulse digital picture frame.
EasyShare is available in three fun colors—red, blue, and yellow. Its shape and size make it the ideal camera for traveling. Not only is this camera waterproof, but it is dustproof. It does have limits though, if you are submerged in water deeper than 10ft, water pressure may cause the camera to break.
Some of its other features include a 32mb internal memory, operates on AA batteries, comes with a wrist strap, USB cable, user guide and 1 year warranty.
One downfall we found is that since this camera does not run on the standard rechargeable digital camera batteries, you have to make sure you travel with extra AA’s. You can find rechargeable AA’s, but make sure you slide a spare set in when you are out and about so that you don’t miss your perfect shot.
The 1 year warranty we mentioned covers breaks or malfunctions that occur above 10ft of submersion. To exercise your warranty you have to send your camera back to Kodak for inspection. Your camera will either be repaired or replaced.

This is the perfect first time or vacation camera for your child or teenager. Its durability, fun colors, and quick share photo options make it perfect for this age group. The price point also makes it a reasonable investment for this 12mp waterproof camera.
