This one is the dogs bollox, and the upgrade to the version i have . . . http://electronics.simplyelectronic...currency=gbp&gclid=COKfur6e36UCFQJO4Qod3i0k1Q i know, i know, i know . . . it's way over budget. But, it's waterproof down to 10m, shock proof for falls from 2m, takes decent video's, etc . . . . and how much would you pay for a decent photo of your new pb ;).


Lower down the scale, but still very competent, you have this . .

Try this. I brought a similar olympus model (850 I think) for "the wife" a year ago and its great. Used for pics of my children taken underwater (in sharm el Shark!) without problem and its been dropped a few times too and still works perfectly. The colours not perfect but perhaps thats why its cheaper than the silver or black ones!

This should last you if your a bit heavy handed, but it is over your budget. but huge savings here http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/pentax-optio-w90-compact-digital-camera-04868490-pdt.html?srcid=198
If I were you I would consider Canon G7 and above from fleabay, the larger the number the newer the camera but not a huge difference that most people would notice the difference.
If you get one cheap enough you could afford to bounce them. I have a G7 in a retro leather case which sucks up most of knocks I give it.

Should do the job for me :) then i will start posting reports of my lil fishing sessions ! reports dont look any good unless theres a few piccies in there.
Many thanks !! :mrgreen:
I bought my daughter that one last Christmas and on its first venture on to the beach it packed up. Replaced after about 6 weeks under warranty mind you.

I'd go for the Lumix (again). It has been bullet proof and great pics.

I got a brand new boxed Lumix FT1 for £140 of e-bay 6 wks ago

Took it underwater in Egypt 4 weeks ago, pics are great, dropped it a few times and it seems to me it will take a fair bit of stick, its got toughened screen and I have put a shock/scratch proof screen cover on it also to make it better still.

Finally I have found a digital camera that suits me :)

Be careful if you buy from simplyelectronics.uk,because there hong kong based and you might wait a while for your item.I was lucky my playsport took 2 weeks to arrive then i flogged it within 3 days(no makro).

Good post guys. I'm in the market for a new pocket waterproof camera this Xmas. Will check out deals whilst in Tenerife.

Must say though Simon, I saw you using your vtech-kidzo in Cornwall and your photos seem fine. Do they come in any other colours than pink. Not saying yours did not suit you of course!
