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.
DSLRs: Nikon D3300
Best for Beginners
This entry-level camera's sensor captures more detail than many other 24-megapixel models, and it has the ability to shoot at five frames per second – quicker than other starter shooters. Even better: Its lens can be collapsed when it's not in use, making it easier to carry in a non-camera bag. [$650; nikonusa.com]
