The photography on the Kaiser Baas X600 is really good, it can capture with its Sony sensor up to 14 MP (4032×3024) pictures with a 16:9 aspect ratio.

The Kaiser Baas X600 also does well shooting underwater and it’s a great high-end camera to have to get some great shots when going diving or snorkeling, it doesn’t do that well-taking pictures close to an object.
