Excerpt: Thrill seekers who want to take their camera kit along on adventures have a spate of products to choose from these days. Fujifilm’s FinePix XP30 is one such specimen. It’s rugged, water-resistant, and has GPS onboard. But just as adrenaline-junkies often sport fractures, scars, or the occasional missing tooth, the camera buys toughness at the expense of good looks. Its pictures could crack a mirror and its audio might burst an eardrum.
Excerpt: Underwater cameras aren't just for scuba-divers. They're ideal for the beach, ski slopes, boating trips and walks in British weather too. Now that most also offer protection from knocks, they're also an excellent choice for children, thrill-seekers and clumsy people. The XP30 is particularly appealing for two reasons. One is that it's much cheaper than its stylish, rugged design suggests.
