Tony, what do you mean 'they aren't great'? They look really good!
I especially love the lake and waterfall pictures!

Tony those pictures are beautiful! Much better results than I've ever gotten with a disposable.

I'm thinking about getting a waterproof digital. Has anyone bought one?

Yes. An Olympus mju 850SW. love it. (The S stands for shockproof and the W for waterproof)


But here are some taken with my SLRs (guess which country):

A lighthouse - The oldest surviving one on that country's mainland

Inspecting toes at the top of the lighthouse

The clue - Have you guessed where it is yet?

A sunset

And one from Cyprus:

Thank you

It only took about 200 shots to get that one. I'd taken 199, put the camera away to go out for dinner, took it out for one last shot and that was the result. Could have saved myself a whole hour...

Fantastic pictures!

Someone mentioned that a drawback of the waterproof cameras is that they're really slow to get ready for the next shot, if that makes sense. Do you have that problem with yours?

I think that's a generic issue with digital compacts. They all have some amount of shutter lag that isn't as obvious with film compacts and digital SLRs.

The lightning shot is amazing! I'd love to have taken a picture of that quality!

Tony, your photos are really a consistent standard as well. I just point and snap with my camera.
I would buy a SLR digital camera, but they are really expensive.

Fantastic photo!

When I tried to shoot lightening I was using an SLR 'roll film' camera and at 36 exposures per roll I couldnt afford the film. Now I have a digital camera but havnt had the opportunity [a good storm] to try again. I'd love to get some shots like that.

That really is an astonishingly wonderful sky and lightning pic.
