Re: Looking For a camera
I'll admit I'm no camera buff, matter of fact I'm alway surprised when I take a decent picture, even with a digital. However, I and several others on the forum have Pentax W80's and I really like mine. I got mine off of Ebay new fairly cheap, I don't know if the ones you are looking at are better or not though the price looks pretty good. I've been very pleased with all the fishing pictures I've taken with it. However, this past Father's day I used it to take a couple pictures of my son and daughter that didn't turn out as good as my fishing pics for some reason - it probably had something to do with my poor photography skills.
