The lat­est Lu­mix tough cam­era is small enough to pop into a pocket, but rugged enough to han­dle a trip to the beach. The 16-megapixel cam­era with 4x zoom is wa­ter­proof to 8m and of­fers some man­ual con­trols, such as light sen­si­tiv­ity from 100 to800 ISO, but it re­ally suits those who want to point and shoot. It’s im­por­tant to read the man­ual, which urges you to slip on the sup­plied sil­i­con cover for beach trips to en­sure sand doesn’t dam­age key com­po­nents. Also, af­ter you take it for an ocean swim, you should soak it in fresh­wa­ter for 10 min­utes. $249 / PANA­SONIC.COM/AU / HARVEYNORMAN.COM.AU
