You can take some great pictures with a smartphone or a DSLR — but neither of those is well-suited to the wilderness. For those times, you need something like the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-3 Camera. Designed for use in any conditions, the TG-3 is freezeproof to -14º F, waterproof to 50 feet, shockproof from seven feet, crushproof to 220 lbs., and dustproof. Of course, it takes great photos, too, thanks to a high-speed f2.0 lens, 16MP backlit CMOS sensor, and TruePic VII image processor, which are joined by 1080p Full HD video recording, a 3-inch LCD monitor, GPS, and built-in Wi-Fi for easy sharing once you're back in civilization.
Creating the world's smallest and lightest interchangeable lens camera is no small accomplishment — what with a field already dominated by some pretty tiny shooters — but the Samsung NX Mini Camera has set a new benchmark for camera size. Weighing in at a scant third of a pound, and measuring less than an inch in total thickness without a lens, you'll never think twice about sticking it in your pocket before you head out. It's also packed with features for such a small camera, including a 20 megapixel sensor, a three-inch flip-up touchscreen, and three available lenses. What's more, the Mini was designed with the selfie-taker in mind, thanks to its 180-degree screen and its narrow focal range, taking shots of you and your friends with your arm out has never been easier (so it might be time to apologize to your friends in advance).
