Weatherproof, meet wireless transfer. The XP170 is built to withstand drops and dunks, and it lets you beam photos to your Android or iPhone via a free (if somewhat clunky) app. Its CMOS sensor and 14.4-megapixel resolution are impressive for the price, though outdoor results were mixed. The XP170 does, however, produce above-average video underwater (down to 10 meters), and the battery gets you 300 shots on a charge.
