Rugged Waterproof Point and Shoot Digital Cameras

If you are anything like me, you want a easy to used digital camera that is rugged enough to survive a dip in the pool, a fall from the counter top, being used in freezing rain and snow or just bouncing aroung in your SUV or pick up truck. Standard digital cameras usually have thin plastic housings that is the only thing seperating the expensive and high tech components that lurk within from the dangers of the outside world. Get them wet or drop them on a hard surface and you are usually looking at purchasing a new camera. Fortunately today you can find tough as nails point and shoot digital cameras designed for outdoor adventure or the mean city streets. Below you will find cameras that will fit in your pocket and sturdy enough to handle conditions into which most other cameras won't dare to go.
