    I have a Sony A100 and a FujiFilm Finepix S700 The sony would be awesome but anyone would take a camera like that to the river is crazy But the Fuji Finepix is an outstanding camera and it was only like $350 so thats not that bad

    Haven't took any cat pics yet but I have an Olympus 7.1 Megapixel. I have it several years now. Takes great pictures and holds a ton of them with the memory card. The only thing I don't like is that for some reason it eats up batteries when not in use? Can't figure that one out so I remove the batteries while it just sits around at home.

    i use a kodak easyshare C813
     
  6. Canon Power Shot A520.

    Got it for 20 bucks off Craigslist and some hot chick delivered it to my work.:wink:

    It is used, but works fine and is great to drag around on the boat, and as some of you have seen, takes fine pics.

    Very happy with it.:roll_eyes:

    i use a kodak easy share, works real nice at nite, i think i'm gonna get a camera like my wife has, she has a olympus stylis its nice and small and is waterproof and shock proof, you can even take pics under water with it, i think that would be perfect for the river just in case it gets wet or dropped :wink:

    I use a Olympus 1030W (10.1 MP). It's shock and waterproof - perfect camera for the boat.


    I paid just over $300 bucks for it - I highly recommend.

    Sony cybershot 5mp or greater would make you a good point and shoot camera for fishing trips or any other event that you are in close proximity too. I have a 12mp and its a nice point and shoot camera and is easy to use and no software needed to download pics to PC just a usb cable. The Sony camera is also fairly easy on batteries. I recommend using rechargeable AA batteries, regardless of manufactures recommendation. I am on my 3rd Sony in 9 years one I lost in good condition somewhere on my trip to bass pro in Springfield while playing in a snow storm two years ago. The other two I still have and use and they work well one is a 7.2 mp and the other is the 12mp. In my opinion a Sony camera of any type is hard to beat.

    I usually take 2 cameras out with me. I have an older Sony that uses floppy disks that I really like a lot cause the self timer is easy to use and its super easy to load the pics on to the computer. I also carry a Kodak Easyshare along as a backup. Nothing expensive cause I put them through some abuse but still good enough to get some nice shots!

    Olympus C-700 2.1 megapixel. It's probably way outdated by any standards. Bought it back in 1999, It's be dropped, waterlogged, lost, then found, sat on, but it still takes decent pictures, specially at night. Kind of surprised it has lasted this long with all the abuse I've put it through.

    Some piece of crap Samsung that I got as a birthday gift 2 years ago!

    There is no need for the expensive stuff if it's just for fishing pics.

    Canon Powershot A40. Just an inexpensive 2 Mp cam with 3X optical zoom. It was my first digicam, and since I've upgraded it is now my knock-around/fishing camera. It does okay.

    I rarely try to force the products i use on other people, i believe everyone should get what they like the best, buttttttttt on the other hand, take a long hard look at the Pentax w series. I have a w10, but they make a better one now, the w15. Theyre small, tough, reasonably priced, and the best part, theyre totally waterproof! They take better pics than cameras with more megapixels, i dont know why, but theyre fantastic cameras. Good flash, many cool settings, very easy menus. I just throw it in my chest pocket in my waders, so its usually underwater when im fishing, i can just pull it out and snap a pic of a nice smallie without going back to shore. I even took it to hawaii this summer and had it in the saltwater for 3 hours while snorkeling and took some amazing shots of sea turtles and tropical fish with it.
