waterproof digital camera

Btw, found a deal on a waterproof, shockproof digital camera if anyone is interested. Nice to have on the bike since you don't have to worry about it getting wet and killing it. It's the Fuji xp10 and Office Depot has them on sale for $100 thru the end of May I think, might be sooner. That's $60 off the regular price, pretty good discount.

I don't have anything to do with either Fuji nor Office Depot btw, just passing along the info.

Some of our guests have brought down the Olympus series of seriously tough cameras. They take amazing pictures, even underwater.

Not cheap, but solid.

The Canon D10 is underwater capable and the controls are motorcycle glove-friendly. I tried a couple of other waterproof cameras that were useless if you were wearing gloves.

I have a Go-Pro and the same Fuji model. It also is great for taking pictures while Snorkelling and can do HD Video as well. It is my adventure Camera and is almost always in one mof my Roadcrafter pockets. Do realize when taking pictures in rain or other activities on the weater that pictures will look better if there are not drops of water on the lens. (Learned from experience.)

Go-Pro is a great HD Video camera and can take stills, but the Fish-eye lens limits the type of pictures you take.

2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 200,000+ km, 125,000 miles.

Yeah, but all the rest of these are well more than $100. The extra money goes for bike parts
