I'm in Hong Kong at the moment, taking a vacation from my travels.
What Camera I Use
Olympus G-4 16 MP Waterproof Digital Tough

I’m tough on cameras, so I chose an Olympus G-4 16 MP Waterproof Digital Tough. Here’s why I like it:

  • It’s easy to use (I'm technologically challenged);
  • It’s shock proof to 7 feet (I’ve already dropped it several times);
  • It’s waterproof to 50 feet;
  • It’s freeze proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit;
  • It’s crush proof to 220 pounds.

AND it takes pretty good pictures! Best of all, I can slip it in my pocket. No need for a camera case.
