Want to purchase NEW camera to take pics of fish

Post by John Trembley » July 14th, 2017, 12:02 pm

I need a decent NOT SUPER EXPENSIVE camera so I can take pics and video of the fish I catch. Then I will be able to load pics/video onto the SOUP FORUM!!!! I know nothing about cameras, want to get one that will not crap out after 6 months but also do not want to break my piggy bank!!! Suggestions will be appreciated! Should it be waterproof?

I agree with the smartphone idea. I have an iPhone 7 and love it. It's water resistant which is a nice bonus. If you want a dedicated camera though I feel you can't go wrong with any of the Nikon coolpix series. I've owned several of them over the years and liked them all. They have several models to choose from under 200 bucks including a nice water and shock resistant unit.

My Samsung Galaxy-8 phone takes better pics than any of the cameras I've ever had.
