Best camera for kayaking
I have used several waterproof cameras over the years including enthusiast models in underwater housings. I use them mainly for whitewater kayaking, but sometimes underwater or at the beach. By far the best has been the Sony RX100 in a housing. The housing is bulky but worth the effort to carry it because of the image quality.
I often shoot on overcast days or in the rain. Many of the river valleys do not get full sun as the day wears on. I am almost always shooting one-handed while floating in the kayak. The boat is often rocking or spinning slowly.
Here are a few samples from a recent trip on the Gauley River in WV:
