As iTWire covers more digital cameras, we get a better feel for what is important. This is an important camera for adventure and outdoor types as well as sports (skiing) and water (rafting, snorkelling). It is not the highest specified camera but it is the best for its intended use. Note that it does not float so a lanyard strap is important.
