No fish pictures from me unforunately, but I did at least catch a couple from the entrance. Shaun was my witness, honest!

Testing

I am trying to provide a link to my pictures on Snapfish, But if you're not logged in as me I don't think you can see them. looks like to share them to all, I need to know everyones E-mail... Yuk! I tried posting some earlier But to get under the 60kb threshold I ended up shrinking them to 275 pixels and they were like postage stamps. I'm curious what tool JimW used to size his pictures to 500 pixels and yet keep the file size so small. I'm using Picasa and haven't seen how to generate the same size picture as Jim.

Greg,

I use a simple tool available for free for any windows user. I believe it is called Powertools and allows you to right click and resize pictures. If they are in Jpeg format they usually meet the size requirements. They did with the files you sent me. On another note, I thought you said you never caught an albie only Bonito. That certainly looks like an albie to me.

Hi Sean,

Thanks for the info, I'll checkout powertools software.

Oh I wasn't kidding about never catching an Albie on the fly, and no it's not made of rubber. I was holding one of Chuck's fish and couldn't help, But smile alittle.

Greg.

I had some awesome shots on my camera... which I put in a blue plastic tub to stay dry on the ride along with...

Well glad everyone else had some good shots to post. I really did have some classic shots I wish I could have seen in full size including a sunrise shot that rivaled the original Boneclave photo...

GregD, I think that one was crunched with fireworks. My daughter is a pro photographer, if you've seen my pics she obviously didn't get that from me. She uses photoshop and it's amazing what can be done with that. I know fireworks but after using photoshop cs on her pc I have to admit it blows fireworks away.

Juro, I cringe every time I think of that bin

That image is from Chuck's camera - I've yet to buy myself a digital camera after seeing the results the pros get with 17mp+ all the gear in my price range looks like dog dodo, fine for the web though I guess, maybe I'll land on santa's nice list this year. I was not on the boat when it was taken but I think he said that was Hawkeye's fish. Poor Chuck never got a chance to hit 'em on the fly, the draw of that magic popper was too much to overcome.

I replaced my Canon A40 with the tiny Canon Powershot SD400 5mp. It's not waterproof but it's so compact I can keep it dry much easier and plan to get a waterproof case for it eventually.

The macro mode is amazing and takes great fly photos, and the movie mode allows for long clips (casting etc).



They just came out with the SD500 7.1 mpx - go figure!

Take a look at Olympus Stylus 500 Digital a weather proof camera that is getting very good reviews. It has a lens cover that is not a shutter type which when the beach sand gets into the little lens shutter will make the camera useless.
If you keep your images small(8x10) or less a 5 mg camera will be fine.
You really don't need much pixel power for how we are using the camera . Just my professional experience. FishHawk

I've had several lost opportunities to have photos published due to low mp (fly magazines, creative for products, etc). They usually want 8mp but will accept 6-7mp if quality is good enough. Something to consider if you are thinking of publishing your work.

That's what I've run into with the 4mp you can't blow it up much at all. My Daughter had taken some ocean/beachscapes and sunsets againt the beach shot from the boat that were unreal. She has the equipment to print really large format and did one in ~12x36 that was just sick. I'd like to be able to do that but will most likely just bring her along with me.
The olympus has great color but sometimes the sharpness is an issue. I was looking at their 8mp WR model that is cheap compared to the Cannon and Nikons. I'm still learning about this stuff but it appears MP are not the only factor to consider. I need very limited features and would prefer analog controls, just about anything on the market in the compact category will give excellent results for the web but like Juro says if you want to really capture the moment or be published you need something ~8ish with Tiff being the preferred format, that in turn requires more storage media. I know I should go cannon or nikon but that 8mp olympus looks like it might hold up better on the boat. Pentax also has a water proof 5or6mp that's also interesting.

Our own Jeff Borkowski (jeffb) is extremely knowledgeable on all this stuff. If you have any questions before a purchase it would be worth dropping him a line. I bought mine spur of the moment at a 24 hr department store near the river in Washington state thinking there was a steelhead photo in my immediate future... unfortunately I was wrong

When I said 4 mg pixels I mentioned that it was good for what we, meaning the forum members ,use the camera for not for publication. I was a pre press and digitial professional photographer before I retired. We used Leaf camera backs on a Fuji camera which cost 30K. I agree that 4 mg is not good enough for publication.

Yeah, I've seen the Leaf back on a Mamiya(sp?) and it's outrageous. I never really looked at the detail or thought about larger than 8x10 until I saw the zoom on one of these images or a scanned 4x5.

Now where are those boneclave pics?

I think Jeff would say the same thing as my daughter (if it's not SLR it's junk) but I need that portable durable hold up to the elements type of gear or it probably won't get used much.
