    Hi Bird Shooter,

    Been listening to your podcast.
    Just gotta say thanks. I’ve been planning to thru hike the JMT next May and I listen to your podcast everyday at work and nothing gets me more excited to get out of here!
    “Episode 44: Trail Days 1995” was a real treat.
    Made me real how different people talk nowadays.

    Anyways, I was looking through some of your photos (from the california hikes pages).
    They’re beautiful. I was wondering what type of camera you use.
    I’ve been looking for a light film point and shoot to bring along with me on my hikes.
    Let me know.

    Thanks Bird Shooter

      My pleasure – and check out the JMT podcast if you haven’t already. It’s a bit dated – Episode #1! – but if you are about to hit the Trail it is worth a listen if you haven’t heard it already:

      In terms of cameras – I’ve used a bunch over the years but lately have been using a Canon Powershot Elph because they are fairly lightweight, inexpensive, and take decent photos and video. It’s also easy to hike with it in my pocket or hipbelt so I can snap pics on the fly.

      Sounds like a heavy snow year on the JMT! Let us know if you make it out.
