I just spent hours going thru this whole thread and am in awe at the nice photos I've seen. I'm thinking Jason must have a yak large enough for a bed because he seems to pretty much live in it. ;)

LOL...... I work 3.5 days a week. Giving my remaining time off for the wife, and I to enjoy mother nature. I just wish my wife was brave enough to get her Nikon gear in the boat with her.It also helps to live about 40min from several large bodies of water!

Unless you want to get into a pedal drive, I would look at the Wilderness System Commander 120. I've heard they are stable. The color is neutral. It has a good weight capacity for a 60# boat. It is fairly open in front of the seat (tripod if you use one, storage space if you shoot hand held). If you can find a dealer that will let you try the boat out that would be best. Good luck.

Depends on your weight and where you'll use it. For 'skinny water' I would recommend the malibu mini X but based on where you intend to purchase I recommend this for creeks http://www.rei.com …k-frenzy-sit-on-top-kayak (external link)

It has similar specs to the malibu and I guess it's stabilty/speed/turning power would also be very similar. I can stand up on my malibu.

edit:...............ju​st noticed that you're looking at a tandem so yeah, that's a nice rig

What types of water are you going to be paddling? Have you decided on a sit-on-top or considering sit-in as well? Is your focus on photography or general kayaking?

My overall advice would be to get a kayak specialized in the type of kayaking you are really wanting to do. There is no "one size fits all" in kayaks.

The difference between a sit-inside and a sit-on-top kayak is significant.
With a sit-inside kayak ones center of gravity is much lower, so you are more stable, and less likely to tip. A kayak is more stable when one is paddling and one can brace with the paddle if needed. When you stop and put the paddle down to take a photo you loose the ability to brace and become less stable, so having a lower center gravity becomes important. Also I have a tether strap on the paddle so I don't have to worry about it while photographing. I keep the 7D with 17-55 lens attached and a 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS in a pelican case bungied on the deck.

Roy,
What kayak are you using for photography?

I just moved to Naples Florida. This is my first wildlife outing on the kayak. I think I'm going to like it here...
