The world’s toughest digital camera was just reviewed at Neocamera. That would be the Olympus Stylus 1030SW, which is waterproof, shockproof, crushproof and scratchproof. Having such a tough camera with you opens up many possibilities.
Unlike most ultra-compact cameras, the Stylus 1030SW features a wide-angle lens, equivalent to 28-102mm on a 35mm camera. A 10 megapixels sensor and a 2.7″ LCD round-off the main photographic specifications of this unique digital camera. Feature-wise, the Olympus Stylus 1030SW is rather limited with no manual controls at all, not even for white-balance. Remember though that the tough metal exterior of the 1030SW is its most important feature.
