Nikon Coolpix AW110

If your activities lean more toward field trip than adrenaline trip, the Coolpix AW110 from Nikon might do the trick. Make no mistake, the AW110 is perfectly capable of taking a good thrashing. It's designed to be waterproof to 60 feet, handles temperatures down to 14 degrees, and can withstand a casual 6-foot drop with aplomb. Once you're done abusing it, you can take 16-megapixel photos or 1080p videos with the same ease as a regular point-and-shoot. Sharing is especially easy, thanks to onboard WiFi, and there's even a built-in world map and compass. (We weren't kidding when we mentioned field trips.) [$349; nikon.com]
