Toughest Cameras: The Group Test

Toughest Cameras: The Group Test

T3
  • Most compact cameras won’t work in freezing conditions and any sort of moisture can play havoc with a camera’s innards. If you’re heading to the slopes you’ll need a hardened arctic camera that’s pocketable, waterproof and freeze-proof. It also needs to be able to take a tumble, so shock-proofing is a must.
