Get yourself a Canon Powershot A640/650. They have flip screens, so you can see yourself as you're holding the fish. In terms of mounting it, there are self take kits available to purchase for about 25 (??). Can't remember who makes them. Davvy bought one in June, and is fairly happy with it. I think it comes with the air bubble.

You'll just need a bankstick and a bit of practice at this point. Some of my self take pics are truly awful !!!!

Hiya Neil

I'd keep an eye out for a good second hand one, mate. You can generally pick these up for about 100 or thereabouts.
