Though it has the looks of a latter-day walkie-talkie, with a 16-megapixel sensor, built-in GPS, 1080p video, and a 3-inch LCD display, the WG-3 is a little toughie that's 100 percent action camera. Additional features such as a front-facing LCD that displays the time, altitude, and barometric pressure might seem fanciful, but it all adds up to the potential for adventure. Other more practical features include a 4x optical zoom and stereo audio recording in movie mode. We especially love the ability to recharge the battery wirelessly, so it's always ready to go at a moment's notice. [$350; us.ricoh-imaging.com]
