Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2

Tough gets smart. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS2 is nearly as macho as the Olympus, but what sets it apart is the richer, noticeably crisper photos. Credit goes to the high-speed processor, a wide-angle lens made by Leica, and Panasonic's resolution- and zoom-enhancing technology, which makes the 4.6x optical zoom perform more like a 6x. It also uses a space-saving video format called AVCHD Lite, which lets you capture an hour of HD footage on an 8-gig card—about double the Motion JPEG norm. 14.1mp; 6.6 oz; $400;
