Paddling with a camera

Are you planning on taking a paddle around the lake this summer? If so are you brave enough to take your camera with you? Photographer Jerry Monkman regularly takes his DSLR out with him on the water. Jerry has put together a short video with some tips on how you can keep your camera safe and out of the water, while still keeping it in reach.
Jerry recommends a Cotton Carrier or a underwater housing by Ewa-Marine, the underwater housing can be expensive, but not as expensive as replacing all your gear.

If you are not brave enough to take your DLSR out on the water, than perhaps you should consider a waterproof point and shoot camera with a camera float. These cameras are built tough and can still take award winning photos.

Will you be taking your camera out on the lake this summer?
