Anyway, after Cape Broyle I spent some time on the internet looking at camera's and finally settled on the Olympus TG-850. I ordered it from Olympus Canada on Tuesday April 22, and it shipped on Thursday April 24. I received it today (Monday April 28)... That was fast! I checked my Visa statement on-line and still have not been billed for it. Maybe they forgot!
My old one was an Olympus Tough 3000 and I admit that I used it pretty hard for the three years I had it. It was on all my kayak paddles (except when I forgot to bring it a few times), and was on all my camping trips, and a few Thursday evening practices as well. I even took it on a few job-sites with me too. Every picture on this blog prier to this entry was taken with it, and many, many more that I did not post. I did not baby the camera but did not intentional abuse it either. There were a few times I found it dangling on my tether, bouncing against the side of my kayak as I paddled away trying to figure out what that funny sound was that I was hearing... I did make it a point to rinse it with fresh water after each paddle.
Anyway, here is the very first picture that I thought would be a good one to take with my new camera... it is a picture of my old one...
Rest in Peace
I hope my new one serves me as well as my old one.
