Waterproof Digital Camera – Coleman Duo 2V7WP Dual Screen

The Coleman Duo 2V7WP Dual Screen Shock & Waterproof Digital Camera is one of the most inexpensive I have found. I am always looking for waterproof digital cameras for work and play. This digital camera has a small screen on the front of the camera as well as the back. I guess the “selfie” is real important now, and is a feature on this digital camera.

The Coleman Duo 2V7WP Dual Screen Shock and Waterproof Digital Camera Comes in 3 Colors

The Coleman Duo 2V7WP actually comes in 4 colors, but this great deal with the camera, 16GB micro SD card, Micro card reader, card case, 4″tripod, and Micro-fiber cleaning cloth only has 3 colors available.

The reviews on Amazon.com are a bit mixed. This is not a high end digital camera. It is a low end digital camera that is waterproof. I think that there are many cameras that are much better, but this camera is $70. I bought 2 of them for work so that my employees would have a way to document their workday. We have went through waterproof cameras from $130 – $299 and we just keep breaking them. They last a while, but in the end the job kills them. So I thought I would try a more inexpensive approach.

It is a great starter camera for children or for people that do not use a camera much. The low price is attractive.

After reading some of the reviews. I have answered some of the complaints.

  1. The power button has to be pressed for 2 seconds or so to turn on and also to turn off.
  2. The USB cord plugs in the same place where the batteries are. After plugging in the USB cord, press the power button to turn the camera on and your PC will read what is on the card.
  3. The camera only option does come with batteries, but does not come with a MicroSD card. The kits below that are available in 3 different colors do come with a MicroSD card. This is an add-on that Amazon put together for this product.
  4. There are photos available that I took on each setting 3M, 5M, 8M, and 14M, then each zoomed 4X. Scroll down past the camera images and details.
  5. The battery/SD card door is hard to open, but it is a waterproof seal. It should not be too easy.
  6. The front selfie camera is in 3M and does not appear to switch to anything as the settings don’t work on the front. I did not find that the camera resets or anything like that. The front camera does switch to video and will record video.
  7. The camera turns itself off after a minute or so, if it is left on.
  8. I haven’t found the flash a problem, but I am usually taking photos without flash anyway. The few pictures that I have taken indoors seem to have turned out ok.
  9. I am finding the zoom a little grainy. Even in Super Fine setting.
  10. I am not finding the date reset after the battery door is open for a few minutes. I know from past experience on other cameras that if the batteries are dead for too long then the internal memory battery will only keep the settings for so long.
  11. I am thinking that some of the negative reviews were from several years ago, and maybe some of these complaints have been resolved.
  12. My phone takes better photos too, but I am not going to give someone my phone to take pictures with all day.

This link is for the camera only, but you can choose one of 4 colors. Once you go to the Amazon product page, you can choose which color you want as the products are all the same, except for the color.


Here are the pictures that I took. I took them all of the same place for comparison. I have tried to upload the photos in their entirety for comparison. On the web page they are smaller. Just click on each image for the actual image. Most of the photos are on the “fine” quality setting. I did take 2 on “super fine” just for comparison. The sun was over the trees to the left.
