The FinePix XP10 is a Mom's Best Bet for a waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, dustproof, and fashionable camera!
I have the green and recommend this camera especially for taking on vacation. It takes excellent pictures and videos in and out of the water. I got tired of forgetting my old underwater camera when we go to the beach. Now, I can just bring one camera and it does it all. Actually, we even took our Christmas picture with it this year!
I also highly recommend purchasing the silicone sleeve for it. I have dropped a different camera in the past and it still worked fine, but what I didn't know is that if there is any drop (even if you are unaware of bumping or dropping it) and water gets into the crack, it can expand thus letting more water in and completely damaging the camera.
As a busy mom, I do not want to have to "baby" my camera and the beauty is that the XP10 is very durable, even if little hands get on it. The silicone sleeve is cheap plus it provides added protection if it's dropped from a higher surface. You can't beat the price at Amazon.com for $129.99!!! For all of it's features, sleek design and great price I nothing but praise for the XP10.
