    If I were you I would look into buying a decent hand held camera from either Canon, Sony or Nikon. I’m trying to find one myself but everyone has been recommending a canon one (forgot the name) just because it takes really good snaps and videos. Everyone that I’ve asked has told me what I will use my camera for the most. Landscapes, party shots, micro shots….etc etc…
    …Also think that fujifilm has a underwater camera which is at a reasonable price but not sure how good the quality is…

    Try looking here – and getting an idea of what you want, then hit the duty free store :)

    Also, you can also buy your camera from elsewhere then take the receipt with you to the airport, once checked in for your flight there is a place you can claim back your tax! Aslong as you have the camera with you (pretty freaking obvious that one) and its within 30 days of leaving the country!
