LEICA X-U
This digital camera from legendary brand Leica boasts a standout feature compared to the rest of the range: It’s waterproof. While there are plenty of waterproof cameras out there, most sacrifice performance for durability. The difference here is the X-U offers the amazing visual quality you’d expect from Leica — thanks to a 16.5-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor and a Summilux 23mm f/1.7 lens — and is also waterproof to 15 meters and shockproof to up to a 1.22-meter drop. It’s got a hefty price tag, but the Leica X-U should last for years. $3,500.
