Just bought one of these. 28mm x 95mm. Clips to helmet,headband or boat (A frame or similar). Model ACT10, 29.99. Waterproof. Superb for the money. Takes a 16Gb mini SD, giving 7-8 hrs of footage. See youtube for ACT10 trials.

I would try and find a mark one Go Pro, since the Go Pro 2 came out the mark one is significantly cheaper but still an amazing bit of kit with HD and 60 frames per second. Second hand I doubt they sell for much, you can get completely waterproof cases for them too

Hi,
we used our Tesco Clubcard vouchers to get the Olympus MJU310. Waterproof and shockproof. Should be 170 but with the voucher exchange had to use just 85 worth of vouchers.

used it on the SIB and at centre parcs on the slides and in the pool.
Quite pleased really, especially as it feels like it was free

There is a voucher exchange going on right now uptil 11 june.

Jake
