Florida ought to make for great kayaking. Looking forward to more of your photographs! I am finishing up a gear pod to hold my things and keep them dry. I hope to contribute a few more photographs soon.

My camera seems to be bricked. Carelessly got salt water on it.... Very disappointed

Great images and a great state for kayaking. Sorry about your camera. Can you use this as an excuse to get the camera of your dreams?

A very good kayak for photography is the Native Ultimate 12 and Native Ultimate 14.5, and now the new Ultimate FX models. Also the Wilderness Commander 120 and 140 are very good. You can stand up in these models because they are so stable.

I would agree with this. Those are all excellent choices.

I went out today on Jordan Lake in NC with my Wilderness Systems Manteo circa 1999 model to try out the equipment pod I made to protect the gear while paddling to and from locations. I had a lot of fun and saw many beautiful birds. Wont be able to get to the photos until tomorrow though. I realized quickly its going to take awhile for me to get my technique down. I'm using the 120-300 2.8 OS and 2x Kenko TC in my sig and its a whole new experience trying to compensate for bobbing in the water when handholding heavier equipment. What kind of suggestions/strategies might those of you using cockpit style kayaks offer? Thanks!

I try not to go out during the day. 90% of my kayak photos are taken in the morning and the evening when there is less wind. I also like to use coves as areas to escape the wind and wake from other boaters. If the conditions are rough I will usually put my camera up and enjoy a nice paddle.

One of the reasons I chose the commander was because of its amazing stability, which helps mitigate the "bobbing" issue. I also keep my shutter speeds high, even with IS

So here are a few of the BIF shots from the kayak. I think this next trip out I will try stalking some of the wading/swimming/perchi​ng birds too. Looking forward to trying again. :) I can definitely see the advantage of finding a more sheltered cove with calmer water. Thanks for the suggestions.

There are few pics of other boats earlier in the thread.

Here are couple of my Native Ultimate 12 with Propel. You can see the ball head in front of the seat. Its mounted to a plate that's attached to the well that is normally for the pedal drive.

Here's another version to cover the pedal drive.

I rest the camera on my fanny pack style pfd when I peddle or in my lap when I paddle. I use a hand strap. Sometimes with the camo on the boat, sometimes without.
