Hi all,

I've been doing a bit of looking round the net after a little compact camera to take with me when i'm fishing etc as my Sony DSLR is a bit of a lump to carry around with me while doing this.

I am wanting one that either comes with or you can buy a wireless remote for so i can do self takes without the hassle of having to set a timer. I would also like it to have 12+ MP and be decent for a night or low light shot just in case it's needed for then.

Cheers in advance for any suggestions,
Ryan

Thanks for the reply and i had a quick look at the other forum but it's unfortunately not going to help me with what im after as im wanting to be able to hold fish up and get a picture so i could be up to about 5-6 feet away from the camera, The air releases one guy mentioned on there are a possibility but it will be more to carry again.

I'm sure there must be something out there with a wireless remote as i used to have an old compact Canon Ixus with a wireless remote but this was film and i'd like to be able to check pictures before returning my catch.

If there are no cameras with a remote does anyone know of a universal remote that a 3rd party company might produce that would work?

Thanks for that. Looks perfect for what i'm after, small, lightweight, plenty of pixels and a wireless remote. :D

OK, well, I expect a full review from you and Graham on how well it performs :D

Seems an amazing price and if bought from Amazon you get 31 days to try it out.

Enjoy!
