Default Thank goodness for the back up camera ...

Went fishing with my main camera, Olympus E-M5 and wide-short telephoto lens, but after a dozen shots the battery died. Normally I have a spare, but not on this occasion, but unusually I had a a small Canon S120 compact in my shirt pocket.
And it did a pretty good job for the single-handed close range work. The winner feature is the zoom collar around the shutter button so you can re-frame without juggling the camera to twist a zoom ring.

And this is what you don't want - saltwater splashing all over the front element, lens barrel and camera top plate a second later ...

However a thorough wipe down straight away and it is still working and taking nice sharp shots ... phew!
