Out of all the underwater cameras available today, the Paralenz Vaquita is truly unique.
It is the only action camera purely for diving and offers some incredible features not found anywhere else.
The two most important ones are the amazing automatic DDCC (depth dependant color correction) and the image stabilization.
These will make most of the usual artificial lightning obsolete and save you a lot of money in the long run.

Our Paralenz Vaquita review
Below you find everything you need to know about the Paralenz Vaquita, its features, specs and what we like, and don't like about it.
The Paralenz Vaquita has been around for a few years and has since become the biggest competitor of the almighty GoPro for underwater video footage.
I LOVEEEE the automatic color correction that changes depending on the depth and almost makes post-processing software like Premiere Pro useless. Almost though, as the Paralenz does not perform as well in dark environments as the GoPro.
The Paralenz is excellent for those who want an out-of-the-box solution for underwater videos and cannot be bothered with big setups, tweaking settings, and optimizing artificial lighting.
The choice you have here is really: Do you want that out-of-the-box optimization, optimized for scuba diving footage?
If that’s the case, the Paralenz will be a revelation for you.
If you prefer to bring your own lights or want to use an action camera for other sports, I’d get a different one.
