Fly fishing exposes you and everything you’re carrying to crazy conditions. A camera must be able to handle everything. Water, extreme temperatures and abuse. A fly fishing camera also needs to be easy to use and take quality pictures.
For years I swore by the Canon D30, I’ve purchased three of these cameras. This model has everything I liked. Good Pics, Rugged, and Easy to use. Sadly Canon has stopped making it.
So What Fly Fishing Camera do I use NOW
The Olympus TG-5 (Amazon Link) has been a fish camera machine! This camera is a step up from the D30, but after using it for a couple years I really Like it.
I recommend the OLYMPUS TG-5 Waterproof Camera (Link to Amazon for Great Reviews)
Features and things I Love about the TG-5
- Waterproof to 50 feet
- High resolution pictures (12md)
- High speed lens for snapping those fish of a lifetime
- Compensates exposure when underwater
- Intuitive buttons and functions
- Wireless operation. Get an APP on your phone and you can control remotely.
- Record: GPS, Temperature, Compass, and Manometer readings withing picture data file.
- Shockproof for 7 foot falls
- A mountain of accessories: lens, lights, handles and attachment methods.
I don’t want to write something that’s like a sales page. I really like this camera, use it and trust that my memories will be captured. I’ve broke to many phones and expensive DSLRs. I’ve learned my lesson get a camera built to survive the everything you throw at it.
