    As you can see from our albums, I like to take pics of the wife out and about, and at the beach. So of course, I'll be taking pictures of her at TTR too (don't worry, I'll be careful about what's in the background).

    I usually just use my phone/camera, but that doesn't seem to be like a great idea by the pool/beach/etc.

    Is there a better way (camera) for me to get candid pics outside? Thanks.

    You can purchase a waterproof digital camera at most stores. They take decent pictures. We had someone in our group last year who used one and if you look at our album from last October all of those are from his camera. - Melissa

    Thank you for considering your background when you take pictures- we know it can jack up the spontaneity of the moment to take the time to be considerate, but it is VERY much appreciated!

    Do you happen to have an iPhone? If so there is a case called Lifeproof. It's what I use. It completely seals the phone, making it water proof up to 6.5ft of water. No worries about water, sand, suntan lotion....aiwc :icon_wink:. Check em out if ya have an iPhone.

    We always have our camera with us. My lovely lady loves life, and I love taking fun times pics of her loving that life.

    And... she's Hot! So...

    I've had a couple waterproof/shockproof digital cameras (the little ones, slightly bigger than a cigarette pack) and we either toss it in her purse, I stick it in my trunk pockets, or I hang it around my neck via lanyard (latest thing). We don't run around taking pics of people we don't know either, unless they want us to (lots of people do, and then come up and introduce themselves later and ask if we can email the pic(s) to them - we try, but it's hard to remember email addresses... Sorry y'all! PM me!).

    I'd say leave the phone in the room safe, they get broke easier. You can get an Olympus Tough Stylus 14.1 Mp digi-cam on ebay now, if you're on it, for less than $200!

    Thanks for the details. I really don't want to carry the phone with me either.

    Oh, and thanks for keeping your camera handy and using it often. She is hot!

    pics?

    So, after all this I didn't take my camera anywhere with me.

    If anyone happens to have any pics of us (or even just the better half), please contact us and I'll let you know how to get them to us (if you care to).

    First time, fun time.

    Both the Olympus and Fuji waterproof models will do well for you. They take a great picture for a point and shoot, and you don't have to worry about sand or water jamming the lens on you.
