Beat Me, Hurt Me: Ricoh Caplio 500G Wide

If you need to take shots of big, wide things and you like to drop, sit on and otherwise abuse your digital camera, the 8-megapixel Ricoh Caplio 500G Wide is one that doesn't seem to mind a good spanking. Its 28mm wide-angle zoom lens lets you fit more stuff into the shot, and its ruggedized body can stand a butter-fingered drop of up to 3 feet.

You can even take it 3 feet underwater and shoot in below-freezing temperatures, too. It's hardened against dust, dirt, and sand as well, making it great for construction sites or for people who just like to abuse digital cameras for fun. Pricing and availability wasn't announced yet.
