The Panasonic Lumix checks off a lot on my list, with its compact look, high resolution of 14.1 MP and ability to go as deep as 33 feet. It is shockproof, as it can survive a 5-foot fall. It features a 2.7 inch LCD, optical image stabilization with 720p HD video recording at 30 fps and has a high speed burst capability to 10 fps(frames per second). It comes in a wide range of colors, blue, orange and silver. I like that it has an everyday look to it, allowing me to take to the beach or to a wedding.
When it comes to great cameras, Olympus never fails and they really came out swinging with the Stylus Tough 8000. This camera lives up to its’ name with its tough exterior and I was also impressed with what it had going on under the hood. 12 MP camera, 24 shooting modes, 3.6 wide angle lens and can shoot multiple frames per second. It is waterproof down to 33 feet; it is shockproof, sustaining falls from up to 6.6 feet, and freeze-proof surviving 14 degree Fahrenheit temperatures. It is everything proof and definitely worth checking out.
Waterproof up to 10 feet, shockproof of up to 3 feet and freeze-proof of up to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, this camera has a 12 MP, 2.7 inch LCD screen, 5x optical zoom lens with a reinforced protective lens barrier. It also features 720p HD movie recording and an automatic Facebook/YouTube Automatic Web Upload function for easy uploading. Fujifilm FinePix XP10 comes available in three different colors, silver, black and green.
