    c.w., Now I think I understand what you really want. It's the same thing we all want, unfortunately it hasn't been made yet.

    The Action Touch is Nikon's waterproof P&S. You have zero manual control, but get a nice 35mm f2.8 and it's waterproof to 10' so no amount of snow would harm it. I've got two, both of which I snagged off the 'Bay for ~$35 each. Work considering.

    Well, after some searching and all you guy's help i'm at a sorta at some kind of decision. I'm poking around for one of the numerous 70s scale focus or rangefinder automatics. Something like one of the numerous olympus 35 series, a canonet, yashica electro, minolta hi-matic, or about a hundred other ones. Since i've got a while until the snow really hits hard, i'm just sorta on the lookout for a good deal. If anyone's got something like that they're willing to sell, maybe send a PM?

    Thanks for all your help guys. This was definitely a field of cameras i didn't have much experience with and your suggestions were extremely helpful.

    My experience with the Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80 DLX QD is mixed. When I first got it (for $10 mind you) it was great. I always had it on my belt in a pouch. So if I didn't have a TLR or SLR with me, at least I had the Oli.

    After a few months, the lens developed a very frustrating sort of flare, indoors & out, that pretty much ruined all of my photos. Here's a quicky scan to show you an example of what I'm talking about:


    Now the really confusing thing is that I get this on most of my photos, but not all. The same evening on the same roll of film, I took this image that does not exhibit the problem (and yes, both images were taken with flash):

    The Canon Aquasnappy produces great results and is very tough.

    This is just a guess, but check to see if the clam-shell is not opening completely, or the edge of the clam-shell has become reflective.
