Some of the best times to take pictures are times when you don't want to bring your expensive and frgaile CyberShot along. But if you ever find yourself with a potentially great shot at the beach or pool, or in the Arctic circle, check out this camera...

The Rollei X-8 Sports is scheduled for release in September or October and is lightweight (158g), resistant to moisture, dirt and cold, waterproof to 10m, and can take a 1m drop. All of that hardcore stuff in addition to what you'd expect from your point-and-shoot: 8megapixels, 3x optical zoom, and up to 1600 ISO, along with a bunch of shooting presets. No price yet, but we'll keep you posted.
