If you have little ones you’re probably taking hundreds of pictures of every little thing they do. The trouble is that Junior wants to toss the camera from the baby carrier, or at least pour apple juice on it.
Fortunately, this camera is waterproof to 10 feet, which makes it impervious to spills (and easy to clean under the faucet!), drop-proof from five feet (tested intentionally on the trail and by accident on the playground), and still takes crystal clear 14 megapixel shots with a 3.6x zoom, HD video, and even 3D pictures if you have a compatible 3D television.
The rechargeable lithium ion battery lasts for about 150 shots and keeps disposable batteries out of the landfill. It is slim enough to easily fit in a pocket, purse, or hipbelt pocket, and rugged enough to survive rough handling. $199; 5.5 oz.; olympusamerica.com
