Baby, it's cold outside, and now there's a camera that's up for the job.The freezeproof (to 14 degrees) 790's rugged metal body and shockproof construction make it hard to destroy. Drop it, submerge it, run over it with your skis — it's all good. The 4.8-oz. shooter still performs — and well, thanks to its 7.1-megapixel resolution and 3X optical zoom.
