Proud New Owner: Canon PowerShot S2 IS

My fishing trip to BC, CA is coming up and I really wanted a decent camera to take along. I settled on the Canon PowerShot S2 and am really happy with it.

So, I do need some advice. I need a camera bag for it as well as some way to secure it while I'm fishing to keep it dry and, God forbid, some way to get it to float should I drop it. I was thinking of something like this from REI.

So, suggestions?

I'd pick up a Lowepro packin your cameras size, for a little cushioning, and that waterproof bag, for obivious reasons.

I have Lowepro's for both my cameras and they're pretty ruggid.

We use pelicans for our cameras at work (we recently got a Powershot G-6 for patrol BTW). I would recommend one of them. Your camera will survive a bear attack, and they are surprisingly light for the protection they provide.

And, they float!

Thanks for the feedback. The Lowepro's look pretty close to my price point. The Pelicans look pretty nice but are pretty expensive.

The Lowepro's are water proof (basically agaainst rain and splashing) and are pretty inexpensive. Nice that they published a compatibility guide for each camera model for comparison reasons.

Still need to confirm that the bag I looked at will work. Need to look at that as well. The nice thing is that the boys over at Circuit City will replace the camera if I screw it up thanks to my "license to break" support agreement. Cost a little but knowing that I was going fishing made it an easy choice.

Thanks again for your help.

I'm a big Lowepro fan too. I have five of their bags and all are very well made.

Pelicans are expensive, true. And you may not need their near indestructableness, but if you are going on a boat,m make sure the other options can float.
