Nikon finally got the ruggedized camera right in the AW100, it seems. The AW100 is still a compromise in some respects (battery life), but image quality is good enough for most purposes and, with waterproofing to 33 ft and shockproofing to 5, it can take a solid beating. Unlike Panasonic's newly-announced TS4, the AW100 sports a CMOS sensor and a high-resolution LCD. It's also quite a bit cheaper than some of its ultra-rugged competition.
