Good news for active photographers: Trusted brands like GoPro, Canon, and Polaroid have updated their offerings to include cameras that are waterproof, freezeproof, dustproof, and light, without sacrificing resolution or sensor performance. Here are the best new cameras for every kind of shutterbug, whether you're a seasoned TV producer or a beginner who just wants something better than an iPhone.
Advanced Point-and-Shoots: Fujifilm XQ1
Best for All-Around Use
The XQ1 is a fully pocketable 7.3-oz compact whose only real trick is capturing incredible photos. It focuses faster than any camera in its class (0.06 seconds), and its shots are more detailed than its 12-megapixel count might suggest, thanks to a sophisticated sensor normally found in larger Fuji cams.
