a really TOUGH camera

Often when I want to shoot something, the only camera I have with me is the one in my Palm Treo. While it's better than nothing, it lacks resolution and focusing ability. It's been a while since I've had a small digital camera (the last one was a SONY that worked very well) so I've been thinking about a new one. One factor that has concerned me is that these small pocket cameras seem to be fragile. The answer to my search may be the new Olympus 1030 SW.
This 10-megapixel point-and-shoot camera will survive a 6.6 ft. drop, is waterproof, freezeproof, and crushproof. The only downside is the price: $400 -- but, maybe not, if it is as indestructible as claimed. Read more about it in the NY Times.
