Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S phone can be used as a wireless remote for the camera, setting the scene for some of the most epic Facebook photos of all time. $200, samsung.com

For the extreme guy Pentax Optio WG-1 GPS- It’s waterproof to an impressive 33 feet, shockproof for drops up to five feet, freezeproof down to temperatures of 14°F, and has a built-in GPS. $400, pentaximaging.com

For the suspicious guy: Nikon Coolpix P500 - This cam’s 36x optical zoom will let you spy, er, snap closeups from across football fields. $400, nikonusa.com

For the artsy-fartsy guy: Casio Tryx- The Tryx’s wide-angle lens and 12-megapixel sensor remain stationary on the camera’s frame, but the hinged three-inch touchscreen display can flip around like Shaun White on a Red Bull bender. Here come the crazy angles! $249, casio.com

For the design guy: Fujifilm FinePix X100- Despite its cool retro skin, it’s filled with high-tech features like an APS-C–size 12.3-megapixel sensor (just like you’ll find in most DSLRs) and an ultra-sharp wide- angle lens. $1,200, fujifilm.com
