Fortunately, now it is very much possible to shoot near or under water by making use of a range of waterproof video camera.

Underwater Recording - The biggest benefit that comes with a waterproof camcorder is that it can go underwater. It can be submerged to a depth as low as 10 feet. However, itís important to make sure that you do not exceed the specified limit which can destroy it. It still has in-built dedicated scene modes which will automatically adjust the settings of your camcorder so as to allow you to film under the unique aquatic environment.

Also, it comes with a rubberised housing which protects them against any potential damages on account of a fall. It is a device which you can take anywhere, without having to face the constant stress that it might get damaged.
