Need a Camera

I think it's about time I get a camera and I was just wondering what you guys suggest, I have seen some of your photos. My first thought was this Nikon AW100 COOLPIX Compact Digital Camera | Underwater Camera but it doesn't have a whole lot of zoom. I just want a camera that is gonna operate in 15 degree plus weather and preferably be water resistant and shock resistant. The other thing I want is a all-in-one mode or rapid shot mode, whatever you call it. I kind of am on a budget too. I would like it to be under 400, I know that's kinda hard, just wondering.

I've taken my iPhone down to -20C with no problems. I'd say get the 4S.

If you want something with a decent burst mode, that's harder. There might be a photo app that does it for the iPhone.

I got the Olympus Styleus Tough 6020 shockproof/waterproof for my on-mountain camera last year. Pretty decent shots during the day, but can't shoot worth shit at night and low light. Terrible flash too. I'm not too concerned about that though, I bought it for my on-mountain shots anyway so it does what I need it to do. A photographer buddy of mine got a Sony DSC-TX10, which looks freakin awesome if you ask me.

DMC-TS3D - LUMIX® Digital Cameras These look like pretty legit cameras, my brother has a lumix model and it's really a great camera, this one is defiantly the sporty one.

Casio ZR10

I have the older model the Casio FC100... 6x zoom, no water or shock resistance, not the "greatest" image quality... but does have a 30 fps photo sequence mode and a really nice slow motion mode here's a short clip I took as an example. It's small and costs around $250

I'm not sure if you're looking for a DSLR or like a point and shoot type, but I'm a big advocate of the GoPro. Bomb-proof and the new one has a 10 photo burst option now, and as far as cold temperature has a built in battery warmer for cold weather to make it last longer, which is badass. Just something to suggest if you wanted to go that route.*

GoPro Hero2

Good luck finding a better mountain camera in that price range

I don't want an amazing picture, just something that will be clear.
