Camera suggestions for holiday

Hi guys.

I'll be travelling to the Seychelles in August where I'm hoping to do a lot of activities mainly swimming, exploring the wildlife and going hiking and trekking.

I intend to take pictures and videos whilst I'm there.

Could someone recommend a good camera for this experience?

Ideally, I'm looking for something waterproof for underwater shots and that can take good quality videos and photos. (Doesn't have to be amazing as they're all going on Instagram)

I have been told to look at the GoPro but I find the price expensive.

Hi kx1991

I answered a similar question to this yesterday. The GoPro is a great Activity Camera and yes some of the high end ones are expensive. The recommendation I gave yesterday was for the GoPro HERO6 Black Edition Camcorder, 4K Ultra HD, 60 FPS, 12MP, Wi-Fi, Waterproof, GPS but it is quite expensive at around £400.

There is a cheaper model but still good quality video with the GoPro HERO Camcorder, 1440p, Full HD, 10MP, Wi-Fi, Waterproof, GPS at around £200.

You can look at all the different models on their website at https://shop.gopro.com/EMEA/cameras/

Hope this helps
