does it have a remote? Have you thrown it under water at all? Does it fog up?

I haven't thrown it in the water and don't intend to.  It's supposed to be waterproof to 3 metres but all I want is for it to be splash proof and waterproof if it falls in the water by accident (I  put a floating strap on it).  It does not have a remote but the 10 sec. shutter delay is only 2 clicks and is very user friendly.  A more expensive model will likely have more bells and whistles but this should do me and I should know more about it's yakfishing suitablility once I've had it out a few times.  Stay tuned.

Cant wait to see some pics of you in your new quest Don. Have you made the maiden voyage yet? Hows the rudder system on that bad boy?

I've been using a 1030SW since they came out.  Thousands of photos later from kayak fishing and work throughout the US it is a winner.  Mine has been dunked in salt and fresh water, dropped, banged around, and covered in mud, it still works great and shoots wonderful shots.  The camera just flat rocks!.  A friend of mine just bought one of the new Tough models with 12mp and it is even better.

i completely agree. I have the 850 but it has no remote :( only downfall. and when dealing with big fish alone it is tough to get in position with the 10 sec timer.

Yeah, Jeff.  Maiden voyage yesterday sans fishing gear.  Easter Sunday was the first ice free day on Cooks Bay (L. Simcoe) and the day the lottery winner picked for ice out.  Getting used to an SOT but it paddles really nice and feels fast, but maybe that's just my superior conditioning.  :o  I'm not going to add any accessories for a bit til I figure out how to avoid my usual f**kups.  I'm thinking right now that I might head out from Cherry Beach on Saturday and either test the Spit or swing around to the islands (ask your dad, Robin, if he remembers last year's venture).  Anyhow, the weather's been fantastic so far but is bound to change which is not a problem.  It's just great to get out comfortably so early in the year.

I was just launching as his dad was beaching back at the shore and walk past me...  Didn't know what happen until I got out there with you guys.

I suspect taking the dog along might have had something to do with it.

I wouldn't know since I stopped getting older a few years ago.  Everyone else is catching up to me now.  I even get asked for ID in the pubs again.

6 months and hundreds of photos later I'll give the Fuji an A+ - with the caveat "for how I use it".  I'm a point and shoot, record the moment, kind of photographer and do very little artistic stuff.  It works great with the X-Shot extender but for some reason it didn't help me catch any more fish.  :(

A full recommendation from me as a yakfishing tool.
