Olympus makes great cameras, as do several other companies.
My latest purchase was a Pentax Optio WG-2 GPS camera. 16 MegaPixels. Wide 5X Zoom. Waterproof to 40 feet. Shockproof to 4.9 feet. Coldproof to 14 F. Crushproof to 220 pounds. The battery seems to last a long time. It has more features within it that I will ever use. A very good camera. I am really pleased with it.
