What’s the Best Rugged Camera for 2012?

What’s the best rugged camera for 2012? Take a look at the Sony DSC-TX200v. This waterproof digital camera has an 18.2 MP CMOS sensor, giving it the highest resolution of any rugged camera. But that’s not the only thing that makes this one of the top rugged cameras of the year. Here’s a quick look at some of its other features:

Rugged design
The TX200v is waterproof to 16 feet, freezeproof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit and dustproof.

Wide angle lens
The TX200v sports a 26mm equivalent lens with 5x optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.

3.3-inch OLED screen
Sony’s 3.3-inch viewer is larger than other waterproof digital cameras, making it easier for you to frame your shots and play them back.

Dual recording
With the Sony 200v, you can capture full HD 1080/60p video and take 13 MP still images at the same time.

High-speed autofocus
A new high speed actuator motor in the lens works with the sensor and BIONZ processor to deliver “DSLR-like focusing speeds” even in low light.

Full resolution continuous shooting
The Sony 200v offers 10 fps shooting at a full 18.2 MP resolution.

Creative effects and features
The camera comes with 3D sweep panorama, nine Picture Effect options, technology such as smile shutter and face detection and 16 scene modes to help you capture just the right shot.

The only thing missing from this “rugged camera” is the shockproof design found in many other point and shoot waterproof cameras. Sony doesn’t make any claims about the TX200v being shockproof, but the high resolution, quick focus and great photos possible with this model still make it the best underwater cameras when it comes to technology.
