Garmin VIRB Action Camera £219.99 £115.49
There’s a pretty hefty saving on the Garmin VIRB – it’s nearly half price! One of the main benefits of the VIRB is the high definition screen so you can actually see what you’ve filmed straight away, without having to connect to other devices or a laptop only to find you filmed your thighs. You can also take still images with the VIRB, making it a film and stills camera in one.

A pocket-sized design that’s waterproof to 10m straight out of the box. It has a simple two-button control system, and the Sport Camera can also be linked directly with your phone, which allows you to watch instantly. You can also use your phone as a remote control for the camera.
Sony AZ1 Mini Action Camera With Live View Remote £279.99 £219.00
The Sony Action Cam comes with a remote control with incorporated screen, which means you can set the camera up on your helmet or bars and check the position using the viewfinder function on the remote.
