Fishing Cameras That Do It All
Rik Fairle at the New York Times reports on the newest entry to what I like to call the “do it all” seegment of the point and shoot camera market. The Olympus Stylus Tough-3000 was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in mid-January and, “is the first of the company’s rugged line to offer HD video capture (720p), as well as “taking a five-foot drop, being submersible to 10 feet and works in temperatures as low as 14 degrees.”
Not a bad little camera to slip in your vest or leave in the boat. If the worst was to happen and it went for a 15 foot plunge you can feel a little better knowing that it cost $230, not $2300.
