Like its predecessor, the Olympus Stylus 1050 SW ($300; Oct.) is one of the toughest compact digital cameras you can buy. But there's more brains to go with the ruggedness this time around. This shockproof (5ft.), waterproof (10ft.) and freezeproof (14°F) camera has new Tap Control functionality that lets you activate settings just by tapping the top, back or sides of the motion-sensitive camera body. Buttons? We don't need no stinking buttons. The 10.1-megapixel shooter — available in blue, champagne, silver and black — also features Face Detection, Smile Shot, and an in-camera panorama mode.
