Gear Review: Walking, Hiking, Backpacking (Waterproof) Cameras

Gear Review: Walking, Hiking, Backpacking (Waterproof) Cameras

This isn't so much a review as me asking for your opinion as I am in the market for purchasing a waterproof camera to take hiking with me. Here are my ten choices. Feel free to chime in.

Background: I recently took my iPhone on a hiking trip. On the trip I was taking some great pictures. However, a rain storm broke out in the middle one of the shots. Later I needed the GPS to help me get unlost. Everything seemed fine until I got home. In trying to take a picture at home, I noticed that my picture started to wobble. I took it into the Apple store where I was told that if I wanted a normal camera that I would have buy a replacement for $300+ dollars. Yikes!!! Looks like I am now in the market for a waterproof camera.

If you have had experience with any of these, please let me know. Note: These pictures link to Amazon.
