The GC100 camera can be linked to Garmin marine chart-plotters at the helm, allowing skippers to monitor diver activity at the stern. Claimed even to work in total darkness, it is said that the camera could help avoid the sort of accidents in which divers have been caught in boat propellers. It costs £260
