The Bottom Line The rugged Nikon Coolpix S30 is a simple, inexpensive point-and-shoot to keep poolside, and doesn't try to be anything more. The rugged Nikon Coolpix AW100 is a fine choice for shallow water or dry land adventures -- just make sure you have plenty of light. The Pentax Optio WG-2 is a very good rugged camera with few trade-offs for its durability. The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS combines a bright lens, a high-sensitivity, high-speed sensor, and some nice extras to make it a top rugged compact camera. While it doesn't offer much for upgraders, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS4 is still a very good rugged camera.
