You need a cheap camera for fishing?

In my eternal hunt for stuff that I need I added a camera to my list and I thought I would share it with you. If you are after a cheapo camera to take fishing that will not make you jump off a bridge if you kill it with water we have a wee forty quid from Amazon:

For an extra ten spot you get the next model up..

I have toyed with waterproof cameras and have found that to make them waterproof something has been taken away to make them cheaper, unfortunately it is quality of photos.  Believe me, you do not in fact take a lot of underwater photos! If you are that worried about your camera getting a dunking you would be better buying a wading staff or camera pouch.

28 days to go people and I still have no tippet! I plan on getting my gear out the loft tomorrow evening while the wife is on the nightshift!



I really enjoy reading your comments - say something!

    Nope, but it makes the times you are not catching fish more interesting!

    I`ve had the Fuji XPGPS for almost 3 years now (had the Fuji WP before that), took plenty of underwater photos and videos on holiday and on the Kelvin and Cart. Takes great pics above and below the water. Which one did you try? Know what you mean about interesting, ever had a deer cross the river 20ft in front of you while you were wading? Amazing.

    I had an olympus model, it was alright however was never happy at the quality of pictures.
