    This post is on behalf of a friend of mine whose son is shortly off to Africa for 12 months and has asked for advice on a compact.

    I said the worst risk to any camera is probably dropping, seconded by rain/sand or falling in water, so something very rugged and waterproof is needed. I think I saw such a camera advertised, but I cant remember the brand. He is sensible enough to put price as a secondary issue, prefering to get the model most suitiable.

    Does any body have any experience of any model with these features?

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    I haven't used them myself, but look into the Olympus Stylus SW line of cameras.
