Fujifilm FinePix XP200

Don't risk killing your best cam (or your cellphone) on adventures. As useful for documenting bold feats in extreme climates as for surviving 30 seconds with a toddler, Fuji's XP200 can withstand dust, water (down to 50 feet), freezing temperatures (14 degrees F), and drops taller than most humans. It has WiFi and a 5x optical zoom (impressive for a tough cam), but its smartest feature is a burst-mode button, which can shoot at 10 or even 60 frames per second. [$300; fujifilmusa.com]
