I like waterproof cameras just as much as the next guy. However, most waterproof cameras are kind of bulky (for a compact) and have a sporty, aggressive look. It is difficult to take them to an event more “dressed up” than kayaking or a pool party.
At least that’s how things used to be before I found a Sony DSC-TX30. It looks slick and sophisticated, but at the same time it is submersible down to 10 meters (about 32ft), and shockproof from heights of up to 1.5m (5ft).
Now that’s what I call an accident-resistant camera! Add a 3.3″ 1.2M-dot OLED display, 5x optical stabilized zoom and 1080/60p video, and you have a perfect travel companion.
