A travel-proof compact camera
Backpacking can often mean slinging your gear into a bag and going, as well as the need to navigate across rocky terrain.
If you'd like to take pictures while you're at it, or perhaps take photos in the sea, then a shock-proof and watertight camera is a must.
One such example is the Olympus TG 820. The camera is shock-proof from heights of up to two meters, water resistant to a 10m depth, and will not be damaged in temperatures as low as 10c.
The compact camera costs £164 ($251).
