    Hi peeples,
    Just thought I would run a poll to see what members use to take their fishy pics...or in my case...scenery pics!:cool: I have an Olympus Stylus SH2 compact camera. When I purchased it last year, the guy in the camera store told me that camera companies are not doing that much research into improving compacts as smartphones are so good now with taking pics. Of course some people don't bother taking pics anyway!
    cheers

    I use the phone a lot lately, I do have an Olympus camera but the batteries don't seem to last and decent batteries are overpriced in my opinion, cheers davo

    Funny this came up because I bought a gopro a couple of years ago specifically for fishing and out in my boat but I never take it with me when I go- so I end up using my phone when I can be bothered taking piccies...
    NOTE TO SELF- remember to take the flipping GoPro next time

    Very much in the same boat. Bought a go pro about 3 years ago. Its still sitting in the wardrobe in its box. I really must make an effort.

    The fish I catch are not worth taking a picture of. If I did take a photo it would be on my I phone
