Pentax Optio W60 Digital Camera

Protected against small amounts of water, this sturdy camera is for the klutz in all of us.

The 10-megapixel Pentax Optio W60 can be dunked in up to 13 feet of water, and rubberized edges and a reinforced case protect it from accidental drops.

Capture sweet panoramic summit shots with the wide-angle 28mm lens, close in on a distant bear with the 5x optical zoom, and shoot HD-quality video (rare in a compact). Runs on a rechargeable battery and uses universal SD cards.

Bummer: Small buttons will frustrate hikers with big hands or anyone wearing gloves. $330; 5.1 oz.; pentaximaging.com. Reader service #109
