Very Low Waterproof Up to

At only 3 meters, the Polaroid IE090 has a fairly low waterproof up to compared to most of the other digital cameras of this type and age. Across all the digital cameras that were released more than two years ago the waterproof (up to) range from 3m to 60m.

The Polaroid IE090 has a quite small optical zoom (only 1 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to this camera. Across all the waterproof cameras that are a similar age to this digital camera the optical zooms range from 1x to 7.1x.

We compared all the other 1x optical zoom digital cameras to this digital camera and we think the Kodak PlaySport which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Polaroid IS525 (£38.97) (3x).
