The shockproof design protects against drops of up to 3.3 feet to protect the camera from hard use and occasional spills. The 12.1 Mp W80 features a 5x internal optical zoom, wide-angle lens (28mm) in a slim one inch body that will be available in Cardinal Red, Azure Blue and Gunmetal Gray. The W80 is available in July for $299.95...

Olympus has been producing such cameras for quite some time, such as the Mju 725 SW Compact Digital Camera (7.1MP, 3x optical zoom).

It's waterproof to the same depth, but the u Tough-8000 is even better at down to 10 metres..:-)
