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 Df
Best for Control Freaks
Unlike some inelegant-looking DSLRs, this 16.2-megapixel model is a calculated throwback to Nikon's iconic 1959-era F-series camera, complete with all-metal control dials. Along with being the classiest camera around, the Df captures pro-grade shots and is the smallest and lightest full-frame DSLR. [$2,996; nikonusa.com]
