It depends on the size of the fish and whether you want to capture them under water.

I'm only a carp fisherman so nothing huge and no underwater footage will need to be taken

What a pity. I thought this would be ideal, having an ultra wide lens, good zoom, 5x zoom and the ability to be dunked. Presenting the TG-850

As for cheap compact camera my samsung wb700 at around 60 would be great at taking picture of the fish you catch. but hay you have a healthy budget. All the best.

Roy I'm still using my old Panasonic DMC-FZ20 for my fish capture pictures, it does the job, and I have no qualms about it going in the water should I be careless. Look through the second hand adds for a good cheap camera....Mike.
