B&H Photo advertised a good deal on the Lumix pictured above today, and I bit. Beyond being waterproof and drop-proof and all that good stuff, this one has WiFi, which means I can go straight to the phone with images from it and post or share them on the spot. That should prove pretty valuable this summer when Asher and I are on the Rebel Trout Trek, and I don't want to stop somewhere to load, sort and send photos.
I'll also want a camera around my neck and one around his most of the time. We'll be fishing a lot of places where anything other than a waterproof camera would have to stay stowed away, and I want either of us ready to go to work when the other one catches a fish or just when we see something cool. It also shoots HD video with one touch of a button, so I ordered a great big memory card to go with it.
Looks like I need to get back in a creek some time very soon to learn how it works and put it to the test!
