Best cheap waterproof camera

Waterproof, drop-proof and freeze-proof, the Olympus Stylus TG-630 iHS goes where other cheap cameras can't. Owners say it's truly tough -- they've forgotten it in the pool, covered it in sand and dropped it off a cliff, and it survives. Plus, it's speedy, super-simple to use, and captures nice photos and HD videos. No other cheap waterproof camera comes close.
