    Neato. I considered that one but there were a few too many leaking complaints on Amazon to make me take the plunge. I like that it has a better zoom than mine and of course that it's slimmer. I'll be interested in hearing your experience with it.

    I have that one! In flaming orange

    Had to buy something waterproof after I dunked both mobile and camera in the sea last summer.

    It's a great camera, but the buttons are a bit small and dinky. When my hands are cold I have trouble turning it on in time to catch, say, a bird on the water. Love that it's waterproof and sturdy, but it's not the sleekest thing around.

    I can either post a bunch of pictures or just direct everyone to my gallery. I'll go with the latter. I wish I had taken a picture of my kayak loaded into their boat as I had to leave my car behind on the mainland. That's right, there were no roads where I was. Total tranquility!

    Those are with the Canon? Fantastic!
    Except for those baby photos. They were rather frightening.

    What is your boat? I would like to upgrade to go on more open-ish water.

    Great photos, thank you for sharing them! I would love to try a kayak someday - but I would have to learn how to swim first

    Those are straight out of the camera, no retouching done. I'm definitely pleased with the quality. And how cool are the underwater pictures?! I had so much fun dunking the camera without worry.

    My boat is a Wilderness Systems Tsunami 135. Seems to be a great compromise between stability for open waters and size for small/narrow rivers and marshes. Not the fastest thing in the world, but it gets the job done.

    No need to swim if you stay in the boat!

    and wear your pfd. However, You can't count on always staying in the boat - especially in open water.

    3) Water pools in the lap area of my skirt, and starts to drip through after a bit. I must look into ways of better waterproofing it.
    4) I have much to learn about getting out onto a dock without assistance.
    5) I've been some pretty remote places before, but this was a whole new level. It was a town in name only, and only accessible by boat. Very interesting to see how people can live like that.

    I have a bunch of pictures to go through. I hope I can find time to get them uploaded, but the soap business is already demanding my attention!
    Put your skirt on first - as high up as you can, and then put your pfd on over it. It shouldn't ride up then. You can also change the high backband on your tsunami to something simpler - wilderness systems builds barcaloungers in for their seats.

    As for the spray skirt pooling water - You can try treating it with wash in waterproofer, but that does eventually wear off and you do it again.. basically, it's par for the course. if you want to avoid that, get a neoprene sprayskirt - but those are hot. I use one for the winter when I don't want water seapage. If you have a length of webbing that goes inside of the skirt, tighten that up, and it should push the hard band that goes across teh front of the skirt up, causing it to tent upwards and pool less water.

    sounds like an awesome trip.

    Your canon takes nice pics. Zen - I'd probably get that panasonic myself if I could justify a new camera. I'm closer to being able to justify one, 'cause the handle pulled off the side of my pentax last week - currently I have a ducttape & rope harness to use to hold it... But I have had the camera for 2-3 years and it's spent a lot of time dangling from that cord in kayaks and in salt water. there was some corrosion around the part that pulled off... So I'll try epoxy'ing it back together and should get in the habit of religiously bathing my camera after taking it into salt water.

    Nono - leaking in waterproof gear/electronics is fairly common. Especially when you're taking it into salt water and sand environments. Both of which are extremely corrosive. Sand grit gets into the doors as you open & close your battery compartments or whatever and viola - what was once a waterproof seal is no longer... I usually take all those amazon reviews with a grain of salt/sand - because I have bought several things that people have claimed leaked instantly and am still using them 3 years later. I do keep both my waterproof gps & my waterproof marine radio in waterproof drybags. I have had the gps leak once... but either of those are things that may very well save my life and float once I stick them in a waterproof baggie. I clean all the seals on the rest of my electronics to make sure no sand gets in them and I coat the gaskets with vacuum grease to make sure that if anywater does get in - there's another layer of protection.
