Designed to take the knocks from adrenaline junkies, sea lovers, and children – the Panasonic Lumix FT-30 is one of the best underwater cameras (opens in new tab) that you can buy in the UK. This 16 megapixel compact camera with its 4x zoom lens is normally a pretty good deal if you are looking for a camera that you can take to the beach, or trust to the kids... but we have just spotted this fantastic deal at Amazon UK (opens in new tab), that has this commando cam at just £94.99 (opens in new tab). That is around £25 less than you can find it in most other places.
Admittedly this price is only available on the black version of the FT-30... but if you are happy not to have a brighly-coloured version, then this is the best price we have ever seen for this model.

This tough waterproof compact camera is designed to take the knocks. It is drop-proof, freezeproof, and waterproof down to depths of 27 feet. It has a built-in 2.7in screen, and a 4x zoom lens, and can take 16 megapixel stills and 720p HD video. There is a built-in optical stabilizer too – to help you shoot all the action without worrying too much about shaky imagery!
The key appeal of the camera is its robustness. You can take this underwater to depths of 8m, so great for snorkelling or for fun at water parks. But it can also take the knocks, with the claim that it can be dropped from a height of 1.5m – as well as being able to operate in temperatures down to -10°C.
