The best of…waterproof cameras

Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS, Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5, and more

Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS
“Without a doubt,” this is 2013’s best waterproof camera. “A great all-around camera that happens to be rugged and waterproof,” it “easily beats” rivals in image quality. Only its video performance disappoints.

Pentax WG-3 GPS
One of the world’s toughest point-and-shoots now has built-in GPS to log the location of every photo taken. Waterproof to 46 feet, it can also survive drops from nearly 7 feet. It has a fast lens, too, though its images get a bit “noisy” at higher ISO settings.

Nikon Coolpix AW110
“If you really care about GPS and Wi-Fi,” consider this Nikon. It offers “by far the best GPS system” and also includes street-level mapping. Just don’t take it deeper than 59 feet.
