If you want beyond durable this is for you.,
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix XP55 14MP Digital Camera | Blue (Electronics)
I bought this camera four months ago strictly for outdoor use while hiking. So far is has performed wonderfully and I have gotten compliments on the pictures it has taken. I even have several framed and on the walls of my home. The LCD is clear and easily viewed in direct sunlight. The menu is straightforward and allows many options for whatever lighting situation you incur.
Here is the bottom line on this camera. If you need one for strictly outdoor use in the rain, cold or during physical activity it is hard to beat.
One last, albeit regretful, stress test. A few days ago I heard a clunking in my dryer and thought someone had put sneakers in there. When I went to get the clothes, to my horror, I see this camera! I forgot and left it in my cargo shorts. The camera went through a full wash and then a full dry on high heat!!
I thought it was destroyed and pushed the start button....IT STARTED! The only defect I see after it was drenched with water and detergent, banged around for an hour and scorched with high heat is a very slight discoloration on the LCD.
In other words this camera is the real deal.
