Boat Camera


Old plug

Recommended Posts

I need a cheap camera for my boat. It has to have a delay so that i can take pictures of myself. Or some kind of remote button. I fish by myself and there are times I would like to take pictures for no other reason than to back up a claim. Anyone have any suggestions. I have a IPad but it takes poor pictures outdoors and it is hard to hokd a fish and use a long rod to work the shutter.

You really do not need to spend alot of money or get a high megapixal camera for fish. For good regular digital photos, 3 - 5 megapixals would be fine. Unless you plan on cropping a tiny section of your photo and enlarging 20x, most cheap digitals will have the self timer you need & will serve you well.

Im sure you can get a camera app for your ipad/iphone that would give you some more settings & a 10 second timer. I know your pain however... Look at my avatar photo. I had to hold the fish flush against my chest and extend my cheap cellphone camera as far as my arm would reach to get most of the fish in the picture. ( I was so excited about my nice fish- I forgot where the real camera was & wanted to get the fish back in the water as soon as possible)

Thanks a million. I am not to understanding of a lot of this computer stuff. But I got the apps and it works fine. Now I need to go out and double up on 5 lbers again. It could happen. Conditions are very good right now for the big boys.

Having a camera at the ready is the worst "bite cooler" of them all. Wicked cold fronts in May, banana's in the boat, and wearing a pink hat..... have nothing on a lens and shutter.

Well I am gritting ready to come up that way or into Indian in about a hour and see if it does. Bringing my Gar gear as well.
