Olympus Tough 3000. I’ve read some less than stellar reviews online, but damn it, it’s cheap. Waterproof, shockproof, and freeze-proof at less than PhP 14k. Takes videos of HD quality.
Image quality (with and without flash):
Not necessarily the photostream you’d use for a magazine but at least the pictures look better than the pictures I take with my phone camera.
Now baby let’s do something beautiful, you and I. (And please don’t die too soon or get snatched or go missing. I mean it.)
