Pentax Optio WP Waterproof Digital Camera

If you're an outdoors type of guy and just know your new digital camera will end up in a mud puddle out in the woods, don't bother wasting your time with those splashproof models. The Pentax Optio WP ($260) has a 100% waterproof body that allows you to do 30 minutes of continuous underwater shooting. The 5-megapixel camera has a 3x optical zoom, 2-inch LCD display and a recovery feature for getting back those images you accidently erased off the memory stick. And don't forget, waterproof capability such as this also lets you to wash the dirt off without worrying about ruining the camera.

  • Sony Cyber-shot DSC-R1

    Bigger is usually better. Digital camera image sensors are no different — the bigger the imager, the better the image. Sony's new Cyber-shot DSC-R1 Camera ($1,000; available in November) was built with an APS-class image sensor that's more than 12 times the size of the typical sensor, so you can imagine what kind of photos it can produce. The 10.3-megapixel camera features an ultra-wide Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 5x zoom lens (24mm-120mm) and the flexibility of live preview while shooting on the free-angle, two-inch LCD.

  • Nikon Coolpix S4

    Yeah, we know we just wrote about a new Nikon camera yesterday, but they came out with way too many new models this week for us to get by with just lusting after one. The Coolpix S4 ($400; available in October) packs a 10x optical zoom into a pocket-size camera thanks to an innovative swivel body design. The digital camera has 6 megapixels of resolution, a 2.5-inch LCD, a host of automatic settings (face priority autofocus, red-eye fix, etc.), 16 scene modes, and a nice macro setting.
