Our Primary Camera: Canon Powershot A640

With 10 megapixels and a 4x optical zoom this camera is a significant upgrade from our previous 1 megapixel no zoom model. We also enjoy the 2.5" flip screen which is handy for over head, self portrait and other unusual shots.


Lately I have been taking a lot of our pictures on my iPhone 4. In addition to the standard built in camera app, I also use ProHDR for on camera high dynamic range pictures.

Underwater Photography

When we decided to move to Guam in 2010 we purchased a Fujifilm FinePix XP10 12 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom. This camera works well for snorkeling and for hikes in the water.

Other Accessories

We also carry and use a mini tripod available on Amazon here or DealExtreme here.

Previous Camera Equipment

  1. We used to use an aquapac camera case for underwater shots.
  2. My first digital camera was a Kodak 1 megapixel model with no zoom, but it served me well.
