You're looking for a tough camera? We'd like to introduce you to one who fits the bill: The Pentax Optio WG-1 Digital Camera Purple. Not only does this snazzy little point and shoot take great 14MP photos and 720/30p video, but it's built to last. How so? Consider the following: The WG-1 is waterproof to 33', shockproof - able to withstand drops of up to 5', crushproof - able to withstand up to 220 LBF (pound-force), coldproof to 14° F (-10° C), and dustproof. Impressed? We are. Drop it, kick it, take it out in the harsh elements or under the sea, all in the name of capturing moment, and the WG-1 will live to do it all again.

When it comes to the more basic aspects of the camera you'll benefit from a 2.7" LCD display, 5x optical zoom, and Digital Shake Reduction. The camera also features an SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot. You can store your videos or still images to the compatible card of your choosing. The WG-1 also has an HDMI connection for direct viewing of your HD video on your HDTV. Additionally, the camera also boasts a Digital Microscope mode for macro shooting. The WG-1 is definitely more than the average point and shoot.
