GoPro vs Generic Waterproof Camera for Vacation P&S?
I'm planning for a vacation in February to an All Inclusive resort in Mexico and want to purchase a waterproof camera that can be used in the pool, ocean and beach (sand).
Not sure whether I should buy an "action cam" such as a GoPro Hero5 OR a more traditional camera like a Fuji Finepix XP90/Nikon Coolpix AW130/Panasonic LUMIX DMC-TS30D
I foresee me having it attached to my wrist via a bracelet/tether. The only limitation I've noticed with most action cams is that they don't have an LCD screen to allow you to compose the shot (I guess they're better suited to fixing to an object an recording video), and they don't have a built-in flash (which would limit its use for daytime only)
I like the (small) size of the GoPro as I'd like to just use a wrist strap to carry it around. And I imagine would be much lighter than the larger Fuji or Nikon cameras noted above. However, is the LCD on the GoPro conducive for using as a P&S?
Appreciate any and all feedback!!
