 The Olympus Stylus 1050 SW is a rugged digital camera that has more features than others of its type.  Shockproof, waterproof, and freezeproof, this camera is great for the great outdoors, or a pool party.  It can withstand drops up to five feet and can go underwater down to ten feet.  One unusual feature that this durable camera contains is Tap Control.  The user can operate picture playback, shadow adjustment, and flash mode by tapping the sides of the camera.  This can be good for a user who needs to take a lot of pictures very quickly, but it may not be such a good feature for a owner with an active lifestyle because the camera could get jostled in a backpack or pocket a lot.
