    Not going to lie, I did NCS in the summer of 2015 and I loathed it. However, other than my team and a few others on other teams of whom I know as friends, others really enjoyed it and found it very rewarding! I do hope you guys have a better experience than we did think my bad experience had more to do with the 'leaders' I was stuck with and the accommodation of the first week than anything else though

    You have a few options and it depends what week of NCS you want to bring it on. This is because if you want to film phase one your best bet to get footage is to invest in a waterproof, strong camera, otherwise you may not get as much footage as you may have liked. However these can be very expensive such as the Point-and-Shoot Tough Cameras Olympus which comes too 299 pounds at its lowest. But expensive means different things to different people so if you want more advice it may be worth mentioning how much you are willing to spend. Your best bet to a cheap sturdy waterproof camera is eBay or amazon where there are loads being bid on, some for around £23.
    Go pros in my opinon are the best (if you can afford it) they are easy to charge, they keep for a really long time, they leave you hands free for activities, and they are durable. Also depending on where you go and what your accommodation is there may be risk of it being stepped on or crushed, this is why i strongly recommend sturdy cameras.
    Sorry for the long post i really hope this helps, if you have any other questions or quires feel free to message me.
