Samsung Galaxy Active - waterproof

One of the latest offerings from Samsung is the waterproof, dust proof Galaxy phone. You might have seen some of the ads (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjcG-BkyksM)that show the phone dropped in water as well as into the flour and it comes out OK.

Galaxy Active has 8MP camera, and can control your TV, erase photo distractions with one touch, or preview files without touching the screen. Though this one is not great for quality photography as the camera has low resolution and while it is waterproof, it is not shatter-proof.

Sony's Xperia Z is also waterproof
Similar to Active, this phone is also dust and water proof. Unlike the Galaxy, it takes much better pictures. It has 13MP camera, high-dynamic-range (HDR) video recording, durable tempered glass, and can wirelessly share music and video on other devices. Both of the waterproof phones are highly designed for that purpose. The other features are not as robust. Xperia Z has short battery life, camera's shutter is a bit slow, and has an average overall performance

Sony Cyber-shot HX50
Its a small camera that can. It comes with a lot features that are usually found on larger cameras. And you can see all these here Cyber-shot Features. HX50 is more robust than a regular point-and-shoot though not quite a DSLR. It has a 30x optical zoom, optical image stabilisation, and direct access exposure control for manual adjustments. It fits more in between these two versions and its price is also in between. Sony DSC-HX50V
