Nikon Touchcam Concept Battles The Elements... In Our DreamsS

While Canon and Panasonic brought out new water- and dust-proof toughcams at PMA, Nikon sat idly by. But designer Camillo Vanacore spec'd out a nice one for them. Hire him, Nikon?

Nikon's been sleeping a bit in the point and shoot area, so its funny that such sexiness comes from an amateur concept designer. But there are some neat things going on here, including a curved, sand-weathered-stone body shape and a continuous LCD on the back panel. This is the camera I would have loved to have on my recent trip to Egypt's desert and coastal reefs.
