One such camera, which is not only rugged but also the slimmest rugged camera, is the Sony Cybershot DSC-TX5, which comes with resolution of 10.2mp and a zoom capacity of 4x, with a 35mm equivalent of 25mm to 100mm.

Its texture is glossy, its design is fluid and it is available in colours like Magenta, Baby Pink, Midnight Black, Metallic Silver, Azure Blue and even Cool Lavender. It comes under the category of tough cameras that can be used to take pictures under water upto 3 meters, is dust proof as well as shock proof. This camera features a 10.2 megapixel “Exmor R” CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera’s Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens.
