Thanks for the report! Wanting to take my wife up there to see them this year. I once dunked a digital camera and it was just a ncie paperweight back then. ( they used to be so big when they first came out!), hope yours turns out ok.

Sorry to hear about your camera. I have killed a couple myself:frown: Sometime if you can take the battery out right when it happens and set the camera in a warm sunny place you'll get lucky. I really love all the flowering plants and shrubs found in the park myself. I was wondering if anyone knew what this shrub is. It was very much like Mt Laurel except for the flowers.

Sam, I have a Pentax Optico 2.2 Megapixel camera. the unique feature about this camera is that you can literally drop it in the water. I have seen pictures taken under water with it, that is holding the camera under the surface and taking the picture. It is not advertised as an underwater camera, just water resistant but take my word for it you can get it wet and there is no harm.

I take it with me fishing and I have used it on the Litlle River in early November with the temps < 32 degrees F in snow and it takes a nice picture. I believe Penatx is up to 4 megapixel in this design. I bought mine for like <$300,3 or 4 years ago on QVC.

I would recommend these Pentax Optico digital cameras to any fisherman.
