Can the LCD screens of today’s waterproof cameras be seen in direct sunlight?
At present I’m using my cell phone by taking it out of its waterproof bag, aiming in the direction I want to shoot, and pressing an area marked with blue tape along the edge of the phone because I can’t see anything but reflection on a black screen. The tape marks the area of the photo button. Most of the time that works.
I’m considering buying a small waterproof camera as I know Murphy’s Law is bound to catch up and my phone will be at the bottom of the lake. The other option is to buy an inexpensive TracFone and use it only as a camera. I can get such a phone with a 5MP camera for $10.
I’d like to be able to see the display on the camera. I do have an older digital camera, but it’s not waterproof - and I can’t see its display screen in direct or bright sunlight.
