Review: Fujifilm's FinePix XP10.
Most armored cameras, like the Fujifilm FinePix XP10, are waterproof (to ten feet, in this case), freezeproof, and shockproof (when dropped three feet or less). What makes this one stand out: It's about half the price. True, the image quality was slightly less impressive than with the rest of the cameras here—and a bit blurry underwater. But with features like a 5x optical zoom, sophisticated auto modes, 720p HD video (available on all these models), and easy Facebook/YouTube compatibility, it's the best value of the bunch. 12mp; 4.8 oz; $200;
