Olympus Stylus TG-2 iHS

Although this camera has the very small point-and-shoot-size sensor, its other attributes more than make up for that slight handicap. It’s pocket-size and completely shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof, as well as waterproof to 50 feet without a housing. Sometimes the best photos come from the sketchiest circumstances, and you won’t be afraid to bring this camera along—it’s one you don’t have to worry about.olympus-tough_74402_600x450

“Dan told me to bring this camera on my first diving trip to the Great Barrier Reef. I was very impressed by the clarity of the images I got below the surface. All of my dive mates were jealous, especially the one who paid extra for housings and whose pictures weren’t as clear.” —Carolyn Fox, manager of digital content, National Geographic Travel
