When I hunted in New Zealand the first time it rained. For that matter, it railed the 2nd time I hunted there too. I was carrying a small Canon point and shoot and water worked its way into the camera and I lost two days worth of photos.
I have found the answer. Canon’s new PowerShot D10 is a 12.1 megapixel point and shoot that is waterproof TO 33 FEET! (You can take photos underwater.) Its also freezeproof and shockproof. That’s about everything a hunter or shooter could ask for. It also takes great images. I shot some full page magazine spreads with this camera.
During our little vacation I got to test out the waterpfoof and shockproof claims. My Gunwriter Assistant dropped it on the asphalt and then I used it to take some photos of him in the pool.
I highly recommend this camera to any outdoorsman. Buy it HERE. I buy all my photo equipment there and they have great service.
