Best pocket camera for recording the catch

7 posts in this topic

I am in market for a small camera to replace my Olympus Stylus Epic which weights 4.8 oz and is "all-weather". Giving it to my daughter.
I need the scoop on the best replacement.
Got to be small, weather resistant and not a battery hog (like my Kodak EasySHare digital). I am thinking probably another 35mm would do it.

my choice is the kodak waterproof camera. they float,not very spendy and durable. keep the lens from scratching and they do take nice pitcures. the down fall, no flash.

I always carry a disposable in a ziploc when I'm in the field or on the water. Always work well, small, light, and with stuff being easy to lose in the outdoors they are cheap.

pj4, thanks for the Kodak floatable idea. I once leaned over the stearn to tilt a little outboard and my Cannon A-1 rolled out of my backpack into the drink. Cost a bundle to fix.

Lunker, I have never thought of the disposable but if they take good standard pictures they are small enough and yes, less risk in an inherently risky environment.

I also like the Dodak, either waterproof or reg. Good pictures and dont need to worry about droping it in the drink.

I always have my disposable camera in my hunting or fishing gear. I too put it in a ziploc bag. I carrie last one around for over a year before I finally finished the roll and had it developed. I am very satisfied with the quality of the pictures and I usually buy them on sale for around 5 bucks. I used to have some that only had 12 pictures on them, but can't seem to find them anymore. My new one has 27, but I suppose I could develop it sooner if I wanted too since I believe you only pay for the pictures that develop. Maybe I just need to take more pictures!!

    •   Hopefully the trend towards "the other white meat" will bring down the cost of beef brisket
    •   No, weekends was when the wife could get you outside to do some yard work!
    •   They are now making a cloth made out of trees and it seems like the plant is doing just fine. I have not noticed the "smell" since the conversion. Always made me wonder why the smell was the worst on weekends. Kinda thought that maybe the EPA did not work weekends 
    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting.
