Underwater digital camera?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anybody in the diving fraternity know of a decent underwater digital camera for under £200?
     
  2. You may be able to get a housing for your standard camera for that.
     
  3. There isnt a cheap option (I have worked in the camera industry) either a housing as mentiond or second hand sea&sea or nikonas(nikon for underwater) but both expensive (not hobby tools).
    If just snorkaling try a disposable 35mm (not APs their crap) goes to abour 5m.
    Try ebay for a Minolta 35mm underwater camera.

    Just my 2 pennith
     
  4. Had an olympus mju digital with an underwater casing for under £260 at cameraworld near oxford circus. Still works fine, but with the constant upgrades and changes about, if you keep eye to ground, might be able to find something a little bit up to date.
     
  5. Therse always e-bay for those last minute bargains. Failing that Small Brown Bits has answered your question. Olympus do some cracking digital cameras with housings for around the £200 ish mark.

    If all else fails, book a trip to Cyprus and dive on the Zenobia wreck. At times the place resembles a tip for diving equipment!!

    Securing those expensive dive bits and bobs to your person is for winners.
