Underwater camera


We'd like taking some pictures during our shallow snorkel in Comino and our beach day in Mellieha. Do you have a recommendation for an average good camera? I've heard some souvenir shops sell it by just 10 euros. Is it true? What models are they?

For a bit of snorkeling you can pick something up on eBay or Amazon very cheaply and unless you are very proficient then you only need something rated for about 5mtrs. A digital camera starts at around £45 sterling and like anything else you can spend a whole lot more. For example £55 will get you a mask with a built in camera should you like the idea.

Another alternative is to purchase a waterproof camera pouch (again loads available on eBay) which will suit your existing digital camera for around £5 sterling.

It depends how seriously you want to take underwater photography.

TIP: When searching the likes of eBay search for Waterproof Cameras rather than Underwater Cameras. The former are mainly for splashing about/snorkeling and the latter tend to be more expensive models for scuba diving with. You will almost always end up paying more from a dive store/operator.

You will find most of the souvenier shops sell disposable waterproof cameras.
