Cheap Underwater Camera?

10 replies
Found 1st Feb 2009
I am going to Center Parcs soon and I wanted to take some pics of me and my boyfriend in the pool and on the rapids, etc. Obviously for this I need an underwater camera but I don't want to spend loads on one that I probably won't use very often.

Does anyone know the cheapest underwater camera available?

Thanks

I'm not sure if they allow cameras by the pool area.
It seems that these days, places like this think that everyone with a camera is a pervert.

I always thought that but every time we go there there seems to be lots of people with cameras or video cameras. I honestly don't know if they are suppose to allow people in with them or not.

Kodak do one, you could try asda, tesco, boots etc where they develop photos

That is very tue. I went away at the end of last year for the weekend to a haven and i took a photo of my boyfriend in the pool and the lifeguards literally went mad. My boyfriend was really angry about it but although i understand why there are some rules, i would of understood if there were kids near us or something, or if it was in the shallow end, but we were in the deep end and no-one was really around us.
I think this is now a rule in most swimming pools, whether at holiday camps or anything.

I dont think they are meant to but i guess its down to the staff working that day!!

I go to Center Parcs frequently.

Their stance on cameras is that it is OK to take them in and photograph members of your own party.


I have taken plenty of us in the pool before now.

If youwant a disposable:
boots.com/web…051
BOGOF, so £4 each ... with boots points too :-) Instore only though - they have no stock left online :-(

Or if you want one to keep, what about this digital one? £43 inc delivery - but I can't find what brand it is to check for reviews ...
play.com/Ele…era
Or megapix do one for £55 which I think gets quite good reviews:
megapix.co.uk/aca…tml

Or buy one of these for £20 if you feel brave, and turn your normal camera into an underwater one:

I went to Boots during my lunch break and found that they had nearly all of their disposible cameras buy one get one free. I got two Kodak Sport Cameras for about £9.00.

Thanks

Whenever I've been to Centre Parcs, they've been selling underwater cameras themselves. I don't think they'd want to see that revenue ceasing by outlawing their use.

However, it of course only right to be mindful of others when taking your snaps.
