Not used underwater yet but had a quick play with it and takes decent quality pictures and was easy enough to transfer the pictures to my computer.

it was in a glass security cabinet in store but the sales assistant brought one from the back.

Oh I love those!
What is the make and type/name of the camera, OP? Can you post a close-up picture of the box? Can be taken in the bathtub, if you want
(yes, that matters as that's either good deal, waste of money or nothing significant)
great for hols and you can get some great pics frolicking in the sea

Its a store only deal so it won't link direct to the product itself if its not on line..........
Good deal! Does it have a zoom lens and decent flash?
I wonder if it is the same as this from 2014 hotukdeals.com/dea…952

I have just zoomed in a the photo in the OP and it is a Maginon

Could you give us the product make/model/code please? I'll be going Scuba Diving on holiday and have a cheap go-pro but wouldn't mind a camera for stills also.

Where are people's manners these days? Even if this was an online deal, the poster has taken time out of their day to post a deal to help the community, if you are having a problem finding the item instead of just voting cold with a rude comment please post a question - in my experience the HUKD community are excellent at helping other members out .

Definitely signs of animosity creeping into this site in recent weeks/months IMHO.
We've got this camera, and it's great for the price.

Used it in both sea water and a swimming pool, it records sound too

Great for taking a few holiday snaps at the beach or when snorkeling

I'm struggling to imagine a camera I'd buy in 2016 that doesn't record sound. I'm baffled as to how you imagine that's any kind of selling point. And 8MP....this is possibly WHY it's £16.99.

Not in the same league as a go-pro.

10ft depth limit according to the last time it was on here. So not much use for Scuba.

With it being waterproof, being able to record sound isn't as common a feature.

I guess you might want to record sounds near whales; though that's pretty specialised.

No issue with it being 8mp unless you need to enlarge photos to say A0 size and above. Allot is down to the sensor accuracy / quality and quality of the lens.

If I could vote cold for your comment I would.....
I had one of these and it was poor. Might of been a bad copy so worth a punt as aldi are great with returns

Why does it matter how many deals he's posted?
Much like their "£30 Go Pro!!!" that went hot last month, I imagine this will be poor quality, with shoddy stabilisation etc. If you actually intend to use it regularly, for anything more than a few holidays snaps, save your money and get a better one, otherwise it's £17 down the drain.

​Its ok to put it down the drain, it's waterproof!
Not all that great for a camera, but if you aren't too picky, the price is good.

Ah fair enough. Will have to try and navigate the buttons whilst down there!
Anyone's local aldi got one of these in stock? Need one ASAP for kids holiday.

The clue is in the title.In store.


So what's the point in a link to the site then. I tells you in the title where to buy it from, you can't use the link to buy it so it's pointless adding the link.

​Duh


Your comment does describe you well. If I told you about a deal only available in store at Aldi, you would want to look for it on the Aldi website.

Good comment, and true, and I should have said thanks to the OP, so, thanks OP. I usually do, but that day there were so many in store only deals with pointless links, I got fed up with it and voted cold, which I don't do very often. But you tell me how many times you've looked at the picture, scanned the title and clicked the link. There is NO point in putting a link to a page that doesn't have the deal on it. I will not be looking back at this page again, so you lot can flame me as much as you like. I have made my point and it is correct. FLAME ON. Thanks again OP for posting a good deal.

Hi Andy, respect for acknowledging the efforts of the OP. The points of the other members about posting no deals though is somewhat relevant here - if you post an in store deal - HUKD automatically adds the link to the retailer's site. You can try this yourself if you click the "submit" button and select "offline deal" you will see that there is no longer a field to enter a link - so it's unfair to vote cold on in-store deals because of the way the system automatically adds the link to the retailer.

Not at all.

Informative comments are welcomed by most.

Shooting someone down for simply linking the suppliers website as opposed to a specific link to the product is a bit cheeky IMHO, and coming from someone who has posted no deals whatsoever makes it worse IMHO.
