Christmas Gadgets - 9. Olympus Mju 1030sw

Solidly built and fantastically robust, the Olympus Mju 1030 sw is a triumph of engineering. This 10-megapixel digital camera is waterproof to a depth of 10m, will survive a fall of 2m, and is crushproof up to a weight of 100kg. But this is not a case of brawn over brains - the Mju offers all the bells and whistles we've come to expect from digital cameras, including image-stabilisation, face-detection and red-eye reduction. Freezeproof, scratchproof and capable of producing great shots.
