Dirt, dust, freezing temps, or salt water? No problem. You can shoot pictures and HD video in any conditions with these nearly unbreakable cameras.
Olympus TG-2 iHS
The Olympus TG-2 iHS, which made its debut at last month’s Consumer Electronic Show, looks like a regular point-and-shoot—but don’t be fooled. This super-tough camera is waterproof up to 50 feet, can take a huge hit (more specifically: a max of 220 pounds of pressure and a 7-foot drop), and functions in temps as cold as 14 degrees Fahrenheit. Plus, it resists dust and works in all types of light, so you can take it to a party, the beach, or even the side of a mountain. Record every second of action by taking photos in bursts of 10-60 fps, or shooting video at 240 fps. ($380; getolympus.com)
