Polaroid t883 Overview
As I said the t833 is very compact for a waterproof camera (2.34 x 3.74 x 0.8-inches (H x W x D)). It is not much larger than most compact digital cameras out there. Polaroid uses a black design with an orange accent to give the camera a little flair. On the front you have your lens and flash. The lens is actually built more into the camera so you still get a 3x optical zoom. If it was not built into the camera it could not be waterproof.
Moving around to the back you have a nice large 2.5-inch color LCD and all of your controls. The controls are located on the right side of the camera. Starting from the top you have zoom it, zoom out, mode, review, macro mode, white balance, flash, set, timer, menu, and trash.
There are only 2 buttons on the top of the camera; they are power and the button to take a picture. Along the side of the camera there is a place to attach the included lanyard. It is crazy that this camera can have all these buttons and still be waterproof!
Moving along to the bottom of the camera you have a tripod mount and a cover that when opened reveals the battery, CF card spot, and the USB connection. This cover is lined with rubber molded specifically for this camera. So when you close and lock the cover it keeps the water out.
