So, I looked into that waterproof digital camera I found and I’m even more impressed. The camera is an Olympus Stylus 850 SW. Here’s a terrible picture of the camera taken with my computer:
I looked at the metadata for the last photograph taken with the camera (which looks like it was taken just upriver from where I found the camera). The last photograph taken with the camera was on July 29. I found the camera, half submerged in the river, on August 28 (almost a month later). I contacted Teton River Lodge about the camera, but they haven’t returned my call. I’m going to be a bit more pro-active, although it’s a long shot. Here’s the last photograph taken with the camera before I found it. If you know these guys I’d love to get them their camera.
I thought I’d try the camera today and see how it would work as a fishing point-and-shoot. It seemed to do fine. Although I didn’t submerge it. Here’s a fish I caught on the Fall River (I was pretty surprised because I didn’t think there were cutthroats on the Fall River).
