My Camera
I don’t actually recommend the camera I use for this type of photography (because it can be really difficult to get it to focus properly close up!), but I do want to mention my camera just because I so appreciate that it still works. I use a Canon Powershot G16. A recent drought was broken by a night of down pouring rain, a night I accidentally left my camera on the picnic table -it still works! A few nights later I accidentally left it out on the grass, found it the next morning in heavy dew -it still works! I’ve been hard on this camera for six years, and it stills works.
