If you want a link to pick up a camera like the one that our resident clown uses let me know. It is brand new and under $50.
one of the shops up in north east Ohio has them listed on their web site for sale.

i picked up an argus at wal-mart for a little over $40.00 , disposible digital cameras ( there reusable , but for a water sport like ours where anything can happen , there disposable )! man isn't techknowlegey moving along . this one is only good for close-ups , does daves have a zoom on it ? i'de like to find one with that capibility on it and inexpensive too for fishing . i've slipped on many a rock while fishing and taken a few unexpected baths , but have seen some great photo oppertunitys that this one just can't get .

The camera does not zoom. It is a JamCam camera. this is a newer model than Daves and has a feature to add a memory card to alow you to take alot of pic's before you have to download them. As with Daves they take very good pictures. Just look at his posted pic's on the Derby link. I am sure the cost is around$45.00. If my known suplyers have them I can actualy buy them cheeper than that. I bought one of them when the price was listed around $75.00 for less than $25.00 from one of my suplyers. That camera is now in the posesion of another member of the boards. It also will be taking pic's at the Texas BFT Gettogether as this member has confermed their presance for the full week and the Tournament.

That brings up another subject that I need to post to the mods board.

Does your cam have the option to add a memory chip?

I was thinking that yours was the earlyer model without that option. The one at this link has the memory chip option to take more pics before it has to be downloaded to the computer.

You do have to admit they do take a good picture for the price!

With an investment in rechargable nicad batterys and a recharger it will last for years at no added cost.

You know I am always like sneeking in with out an invite! The timeing is not right for me with other things that are going on at the home front or I would be headed up to offer my help simaler to my treck back in June of last year. I am still wateing for my chance to make a repeat performance! That was one of the best experiances for me! It was realy great spending the day with and helping the kids with their fishing that day.

well I went down to best buy and got me one of them there 32 bit malti media memory cards for my jam cam,

the card cost more than my camera. 36 something with tax, I put it in my cam and at 350 pixels wide my cam will now will now take 129 pics.

although it is a bit expencive when I put it against the cost of film for my cannon 35mm, two rolls of 36 pic and developing will cost the same as the card, and then I have to go through the added work of scanning them. hours later I then have to upload them to where I want them.

even though I havent used the card yet I like it. thanks ssor for the jam cam link. I would never have gotten around to getting the card.

now I can just pic away and away and away...

Dave,
When am I going to get you to remember to ask me first befor you buy things like this?

I have a suplyer that has the same memory stic available for $19 brand new!

I would have been more than hapy to have ordered it for you with my next order and your total cost would run around $24 delivered to your door!

i needed it by saturday, and as of before this week I did not know that I could get one for my camera. It seemed that no one in town new that this camera even used one.

I even had to reensert the fact that this camera takes the mauti media card at the strore today. the clerk had to call the maniger to come down because he did not beleave me eather.

maniger grabed one off the shelf, he tryed to sell me the bigger one 64mb for 60 bucks with a mail in rebate of 20 bucks, although it was a good Idea I did not have the cash for it in the budget

I am happy because even at this price it will pay for it self on one fishing derby.

my next digital I get will have teliphoto ability and hopefuly the same size card.




I can tell you what my next toy will be after I get me one of them FAT CATS, is.

a buddie of mine got himself a HP printer about a month ago and could not hook it up. he gave me a hollar, (he knows I have a lot of patients) I went over there to hook up his printer for him.

when I got there, boy was I jellous. this machein is about the same size as my xerox copyer printer but has more options. not that I would ever get rid of my xerox (it is a good ol' work horse to say the least) this macheis at less than half the price of my xerox copies, scans, prints, faxes, and has 3 diffrent slots for the 3 standard maulti media cards used by digital cams.

we played around with it after a couple hours of hooking it up and formatting every thing.

that thing unloaded his 64mb card with 250 pics on it in less than a minute.

not to meniton all the softwear editing abilities available that came with it. no more plugging in the camera to the computer for him,

that one machein he has, takes the place of 5 macheins that I have hooked up to my computer.

you can look in to that one for me if you get the chance. remember that there is no hurry, I am planning on getting me that FAT CAT before I get any thing esle.
