    What phone do you have? Unless you are buying a $400 or more camera, you're iPhone or Samsung Galaxy will take better photos.

    I have a little canon that you can hold in the palm of your hand. Takes great pictures. Probably about $100

    We have one of the Olympus waterproof cameras that I think we paid $180 for a couple of years ago and it takes great pics. We mainly use our phones, but most of our vacations are around water so we wanted something waterproof--not to mention unexpected rainstorms in Florida. We are not trying to take magazine worthy photos, just capturing our memories and we have been very happy with this camera. We have used it snorkeling in the ocean and at the pools.

    I have a similar one (~ $150). I got it on Amazon a couple of years ago using credit card rewards.

    I use the Nikon Coolpix. It's water and drop proof and takes really good pictures and decent action photos (I have 3 fast kiddos). I've used it in water parks and at beaches and the drop protection is totally worth it. Just get one those floater wrist straps. It's about $100 on amazon.

    we have some in our group using cameras, some phones. We all save our trip pictures to the Amazon Prime Photo Family vault so all photos are saved and shared. If you have Prime it's a great feature.
