What camera is best for snowboarding photos?

with 5 comments

I am planning to buy a new camera and ideally i’d like one that is able to withstand slightly tough conditions whilst snowboarding because i’m too scared i’ll break my current one! Does anyone have any suggestions of a decent camera for this?
Thanks 🙂

Well actually, all of the Nikon F-series cameras are built tougher than their digital brethren.

The Nikon F3 is a tank, you drop it onto concrete and you’ll leave a camera shaped hole there. Same goes for the F5.

D3’s not bad, but theres a lot more electronics in one of those compared to the F3.

What is the best point and shoot digital camera for snowboarding?
Last year I went snowboarding with my cannon power shot and it ended up getting stolen because I had to leave it in its case and forgot it somewhere. I want to get a digital point and shoot camera that I can just whip out and use and not be worried that it might get water damage or messed up if I fall.

If you have personal experience that would be the best!

you can consider Canon PowerShot D10 12.1 MP Waterproof Digital Camera with 3x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom

What is the best way to begin moving up in snowboarding?

without comments

I live in the south and we never get snow. How can I get good a snowboarding and secure at Burton sponsorship?
I will be snowboarding only once or twice a year and I need to make the most of that time. What can I do to improve my skills without actually snowboarding?

wakeboarding is the closest you’ll get to snowboarding, so do that if possible. skateboarding will help too. work on air awareness and grabs on a trampoline. strap in and hop to it. to get sponsored, first get good, then get video footage and photos and take them to local shops and try to get shop sponsored. take it from there.
