Default Best Camera for snowmobiling?

Im curious what everyone thinks is the best camera to take sledding. I really want to take some pictures on rides this year just don't know what kind of camera to get.

One you can figure out by instinct...that you'll actually carry...that you can afford.

I look for a camera that will cycle up fast and be ready to take the picture.. a couple of seconds is to long when you're trying to grab a shot at the last instant.

Which is best..? Or, which is best for YOU..?

You are stuck longer then that.... no rush needed. ha ha

I use a Canon S80. It is kind of old, but it takes great pictures on auto mode. It also has manual stuff for getting all artsy and for taking night shots.

I am looking closely at the Panasonic zs3 or zs1.

My camera is a 28mm on the wide end, but only has like a 3x optical zoom. It is not nearly enough when trying to get pictures of people coming up a mountain, or any sort of distance. Longer zooms are nice and image stability is a great function to have if you do not have an DSLR.. and better even if you have one.

I keep mine in my handlebar bag, though it is getting dented from lack of packing.

As GTG said, one that you can use easily and quickly, preferably without having to get off of your sled or take your pack off... Takes too much time, for me anyways.

I got a Nikon cool pix L100 last year. It is a little bulky so I don't know how well it is going to ride with me but it has excellent zoom and is easy to use. Last year I had a 6meg camera and it was tough to get a good pick at any distance.
