    what's everyone using on the water for still phtography?(if anyone still bothers)

    Does anyone bother taking stills on the water? I was wondering.. I know that everyone has at least One or two go Pros for video suckered on the side of their ski... I was wondering if its time to trade up to a new still machine or get another GP and stuff the stills.

    I think the GP does an amazing job for very little money as far as the vids. I don't have one, but I hope to get one this year. That being said, I find the stills from the GP are "fish-eyed". Most folks that ride w/me know that my camera is always w/me. I've been using a (Panasonic) "Panny" FZ50. It's discontinued at about 5 or so years old; I've beat the hell outta that camera and it just keeps shooting. Still, not the best pick for on the water, but it still does it for me.

    Before making the purchase, I was on this sites for months: http://www.dpreview.com/ I highly recommend the third tab on the top: Buying Guide, then click Camera Feature Search. Tell it what you want/looking for/price... and it'll help narrow your search (Advance Search). I still check out the site; always curious about for "if and when" my Panny dies...

    My Olympus 1030 still works . I got it right around the same time I got the ski in2007. I picked up my GP either last summer or the summer before..

    I use a Nikon aw100. It takes great photos, and also does a nice job with videos!

    that sounds like the the same one I use... it works well.. glad I got it... I am itching to buy another camera... I upgraded all of the rest of my bodies except this one- only because it gets the least amount of use... I did get a brochure(naturally) about the latest Olympus..... My truck needs some work... and without that I wont need to worry about what images I get on the water because I wont BE on it. who knows? these things have a way of working themselves out.

    I would talk to JetskiBrian in the Fishing section. He takes tons of professional quality pictures on his fishing trips on his PWC. I think he would be able to offer some very sound assistance.

    I run a Contour video, but I also keep a Nikon Coolpix in the glove compartment.
