AgfaPhoto DC-600uw

AgfaPhoto has announced the DC-600uw - a waterproof and dust proof digital camera designed for outdoor events.

The AgfaPhoto DC-600uw has a 6Mp sensor and a 2.4-inch display. It has been designed to withstand dust and dirt, underwater depths of up to 10m, and 29psi of pressure.

Digital camera video

The AgfaPhoto DC-600uw weighs 131g and is powered by two included AA batteries. There isn't an optical zoom, but there is a 5x digital zoom. A video mode has been included and the camera provides a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1,600.

Richard Parris, Which? digital camera expert, said: 'We're seeing more waterproof cameras launching in time for the summer holidays, but often such models cost over £200, so a budget underwater option is certainly a welcome development'.

Affordable underwater camera

The DC-600uw will launch this month and will retail for around €149.
