Best Active Outdoor Camera
It seems to be a rule: The more fun you have on a vacation, the fewer photos you take. It makes sense when you think about it. You're out learning how to surf in Hawaii or skiing the back country in Jackson Hole, and the last thing you want to do is stop the action so you can get your camera out of your bag and snap a few shots. Plus, most cameras are so delicate, you wouldn't even want to take them out for fear they would get wet or dirty.
Here is the answer to your prayers. This camera, which is so small it looks like a spy toy, comes with a wrist strap and a waterproof case. And it's digital, so you can get still shots or video (sound too!) without any film. Whenever you want to take a shot, just lift your wrist, flip it up, and snap. It also has a cool accessory that allows you to attach it to your bike helmet. It weighs just 4.7 ounces but can accommodate 2GB of memory, which means it can hold 250 pictures or 54 minutes of video. So now your tales of insane adventures can be documented for all to believe.
