Thanks KR, I'm going to read through that review later. Was looking to pick up a water proof camera before my Canada trip in July.

I have the Fuji camera. It does what I want, which is take a picture and I don’t have to worry if it gets rained on. I also like the WiFi capability. I bought mine for $50 from a guy that used it on his vacation then wanted to get rid of it.

^^^Joe, that's exactly how to buy cameras. I prefer really cheap ones that if you drop them in the drink it's no great loss.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Ended up ordering a Fuji XP130 on a Memorial Day sale. Looked to be basic point/shoot waterproof. Got a float band for it too, in case it goes overboard hopefully will stay afloat long enough to retrieve.
