Life proof cases are far from perfect as a friend's LP case not only leaked but kept the water inside for a long time before they realised that there was a leak.According to me Camera takes a better photograph than iPhone, so i think you should go with a disposable waterproof camera.
I looked at Lifeproof and Otterbox's waterproof cases, but decided it wasn't worth the risk, so I went with one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006UABFEO/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1Will be going on vacation later on the year to Bahamas.
Should I buy a waterproof case for my 5s/6 or just go with a disposable waterproof camera?
which takes better pics or the better option here?
Not with the disposable ones. There's a reason why they're cheap. That said, I'd go with the camera. I certainly wouldn't want to risk replacing a $650 phone.Even a cheap disposable camera would be better and safer trhan using your phone. Images will be better, too!
You can find non-disposable waterproof point and shoot cameras for $100 or so. That's just a few bucks more than a Lifeproof case so if I were you, I'd just buy one of those.sounds like a disposable camera is the route i should be taking.
i really don't want to spend a lot of $$ on this because this will be a once a year thing... if that.
how bout video, how do you guys take video on the cheap side?
Like the one I suggested in Post 10 you mean!?You can find non-disposable waterproof point and shoot cameras for $100 or so. That's just a few bucks more than a Lifeproof case so if I were you, I'd just buy one of those.
