Sometimes you want a camera that can handle the elements, by which we mean it's kid- and klutzproof. The Olympus TG-2 offers rugged credentials (waterproof, crushproof, and freezeproof) without looking like it was designed for an Apollo mission. It's also ideal for those extreme close-ups, thanks to a Super Macro mode. For subjects at a distance, it has a decent 7x optical zoom coupled with a 12-megapixel sensor. Plus, we especially dig the ability to mix things up with optional fish-eye or teleconverter lenses. [$380; olympus-global.com]
