Fujifilm FinePix XP50
14MP CMOS sensor; Fujinon 5x zoom with 28mm wide-angle; Optical image stabilization; Waterproof to 16.5 feet, Shockproof to 5 feet, Freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit, Dustproof; 1080p full HD movies with mono sound; Micro HDMI port; Lithium-ion battery
Fujifilm's rugged cameras have finally made the switch to CMOS. The XP50 and XP150 both now sport 14.4 megapixel CMOS sensors and will record 1080p HD video. The XP150 is the tougher of the two, it's good to 33 feet underwater and has a GPS, but the XP50 will save you $80. It's a real steal at that price, but we're still waiting to get our hands on one to see if it's too good to be true.
