I also enjoyed backpacking trips that seemed to draw the wrath of the rain gods without fail.
    It seemed prudent to invest in a camera that wouldn't have to be pitched if it got wet. Back then the nikonos was about the only choice and could be found used at a fairly reasonable price.

    If you are looking to talk diving and underwater photography, ericr is your man.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I don't particularly believe in protective filters except in crowds and in places like the beach, where sand and salt sea spray are hazards.

    Other than that, I supposed I've used everything from a Yashica T4 to an 8x10" camera at the beach. I don't really see it as a special situation per se. I'm more likely to be thinking about what kinds of subjects I'm planning to photograph. For this shot I used a Canon F-1N and a 600mm/4.5 lens, but that wouldn't be a good choice for landscapes, street style candids, or family snapshots.

    My beach/snow/pool/spa camera is a Nikon ActionTouch, which is a 35/2.8 lensed P&S. Can be submerged to about 5m. Don't make em anymore but there's a Canon a bit similar and now a few digicams are coming out (Ricoh has one) with similar features.
