What camera do you use in the field for general report pictures and why? Is it durable, have a long battery life, fit in hard to reach places, lots of memory storage, etc?? :shock:
Try the NACHI search at the top of page and you will find this question has been asked many times and much information will come up .
Thanks Roy, very helpful.
There are many opinions. I still use my old Sony Mavica FD200 because of the durability, long battery life, and storage memory cards. It also requires no software for loading onto lap tops. I am on my second one in 14 years of inspections. My first one works, but is hard to zoom. I suggest to do a thread search as Roy suggests.
I use a Samsung WB350.
- Uses the same battery charger as Samsung tablet/phones
- Remote view finder, works with the Samsung App so it doubles as a pole camera.
- 20x optical zoom
- Good battery life
- WiFi photo transfer if you need it
- Adjustable Mega Pickles down to 1.
- Pop up flash seems fragile. Older models had the flash in the face of the camera.
- Dials/settings knob on the top right is easily rotated while carrying it around.
- To many settings for what I need.
