Waterproff cameras

If you want to take photos from your kayak, you’ll want a waterproof camera that’s easy to operate. I certainly wouldn’t recommend taking you expensive SLR 🙂

I have search a bit on the net, and apparently there are only two producers of simple waterproof digital cameras: Pentax and Olympus.
