I am totally happy with my Sony Cybershot DSCH1 5.1MP Digital Camera with 12x "Steady Shot" Zoom.
It also has a video cam function that works great with YouTube.
I have had this camera for over 4 years. I call it my field camera because I only use it to do my grunt work, like going to estimates and the beach.
I do not recommend you bring any camera to the beach. But you have to have some fun!
I have lots of bumps and scratches, dings and bats from swinging and dropping this camera. It has been in both extremes of weathers from below zero to over 120 degrees in my car! I used this camera on a roller coaster and was easy to hide to get it on the ride. Great quality pictures with all the horns and whistles of an expensive camera.
So if you’re looking for a camera that can take a beaten and keep on clicking, look into finding this item.
