This past year, I spent ALOT of time on the river and would have loved to get some pics. But alas, I have never owned a camera.
I am looking for something that will take decent pics and that I can take easily on the river with me.
Must be small decent quality pics durable
Being waterproof would be nice, but since I have a small dry box, I can keep it in there during rapids. Water resistant would be desireable though so if it gets splashed, its not such a big deal.
Since this would be a river camera, cost is a concern as it could end up at the bottom of the river.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW--What a Ride!"

Lovin it so far... has way more features than I can figure out right now, but I'm trying to learn something new everyday. I pretty much take it with me everywhere I go. i picked up a canon backpack for $30 and I just got a canon 50mm 1.8 lens that takes great blurred background pics. I will post some up here later when i get the chance.
Let me know if you need help finding any of the stuff. I have been shopping around for months for decent prices and reading tons of reviews and going to alot of the photo forums.

After wanting a good camera since high school (1974 time frame) I made the leap this last weekend and bought myself a Canon DSLR. I really wanted the newest D50 but $'s caused me to not be stupid so I bought the 40D.
It arrives today and I am so very excited. My son is hanging around the house to sign for it so I don't have to wait until tomorrow.
My interest is scenery and unfortunatly, there is not a lot of that in middle oklahoma but thats ok. I will make do!!!
