Question about Olympus Camedia C-765 Digital Camera

C765 takes a swim

During a recent kayak trip my C765 decided to take a swim. It was under water for about 20 seconds I would guess, before I could rescue it. I immediately removed the battery and xd card. I removed the back cover the following day (I was camping and could not do it immediately). I let it air out for several days. Now it will not power up. Is it finished or worth repairing? Thanks

Try to sell it as a sparepart. Some components may have survived. I think of the Display or the keyboard on the back cover.

Tips for Choosing A Best Fishing Kayak


Best Fishing kayaks come in all different shapes and sizes and it's important that you choose the right one. Because not only will it let you get the most enjoyment out of your time on the water, it'll make you safer on the water.
When choosing a fishing kayak, narrowing down your options is actually pretty easy, and it starts with identifying how and where you'll be using it:
• Will you be fishing small sheltered bodies of water like ponds and small lakes?
• Or will you be taking the kayak on big bodies of water that are exposed to wind and waves?
• What's the water temperature going to be like?
• And when it comes to performance, is it more important to have a kayak that's fast and responsive?
• Or are you more concerned about having a kayak that is stable and difficult to tip over?
With these questions in mind your first and biggest decision will be whether to get a sit-inside kayak or a sit-on-top kayak.
Sit-on-top kayaks are the most user friendly fishing kayaks. They're very stable and easy to get in and out of, and there's no feeling of confinement on them. They're also self bailing, which means the water drains through small holes called scupper holes. They go right through the bottom of the kayak. This means you can't swamp a sit-on-top kayak. Another great safety feature is that sit-on-tops are much easier than sit-insides to get back on to from the water, if for some reason you fall off. The one downside to sit-on-top kayaks is that you're almost guaranteed to get wet while paddling, while sit-inside kayaks allow you to stay dry.
Sit-inside kayaks can be a good option for anglers who will be in cooler water, who want to stay dry while paddling, and who want a faster moving kayak. Just keep in mind that if you flip a sit-inside kayak, recovery is not necessarily a simple process because the kayak may swamp. As you're learning, try to stay in sheltered water or close to shore so you can swim in if you need to.
Once you've decided on whether to go for a sit-inside or sit-on-top kayak, you'll need to decide on a length for your fishing kayak. As a general rule, a long and narrow kayak will be faster, while a short and wide kayak will be slower but more stable. If you are only going to be fly fishing and sight casting, a short, wide, and stable boat is a great choice because standing is easy. The trade-off is that the kayak will be pretty slow and not ideal for paddling any real distance. On the flip side, if you want to cover more ground or maybe even troll offshore, you might want to choose a longer, narrower kayak that travels through the water more efficiently.
Once you decided on the style and size of kayak, there's one more key decision to make: Do you want a pedal kayak or do you want a paddle kayak? Traditionally kayaks are powered by paddles, but there are a number of companies that now offer pedal kayaks. One of the benefits of pedal kayaks is that they leave your hands free for fishing. The downside is that they're less maneuverable and heavier than other kayaks. The pedal system also works less efficiently in really shallow water. If you do decide on a pedal kayak, something to keep in mind is that it's very important you have a good paddle on board as a backup.
At this point you dramatically reduce your options, and most of your decisions will now impact the comfort of your kayak, and relate to features of convenience for the type of kayak fishing you're going to do.

No rudder system is available for INFLATABLE kayaks. They are no good for oceans or lakes only a swimming pool. Get a good solid Ocean Kayak or other brand that is RIGID. Your life may depend on it.

I am getting lots of water in my tandom outfitter kayak . one hour trip produced about 3 gallons of water. how can we fix this problem leak?


Probably a crack in a seam rather than an obvious hole in the bottom. Empty the contents and submerge in water. Or conversely, fill up the kayak with water and make note of the leaks. Food coloring in the water may help to identify the area.

Fiberglass repair kits are available at the hardware store for minimal cost.

How do you put an odometer on a kayak to track your mileage


The best solution is a good marine GPS unit. It will have options to plot your course and give you elapsed distances. I don't own one myself, but many of the people I paddle with do...and it's fascinating to see how many miles are added just bouncing back and forth across the missouri or the mississippi during a putatively 20 mile jaunt.

Just remember, even if it claims to be water proof, a clear drybag is your friend...why put "water proof" to the test if you don't have to?

How to pack an open cockpit kayak


Your main considerations are waterproofing everything. Bags within bags is the order of the day so to speak. Travel light and justify everything you pack for it's usefulness. Pack things you will need during the day closest to the access hatches / cockpit, with other items packed deeper in the bowels of the craft.

Check the trim of the boat once packed. Look at it from the side as it is floating. It should be ever so slightly stern heavy. If it is bow heavy it will be very difficult to steer.

Which kayak to buy


Plastic and fiberglass are the two materials the majority of kayak manufacturers are using today. Plastic kayaks are lower priced, have the largest selection of models and are known for being tough. The down side of a plastic hull is that it doesn't hold an exact shape, it's softer (therefore slower). It's close to weighing the same as fiberglass but you can't perform field repairs on it. Fiberglass is approximately $1000 dollars more for the equivalent-length plastic boat, but the hull is much stiffer, faster through the water and you can repair it. The down side to fiberglass is that it's more expensive, and if you drop it off the top of your car, you can crack it
