A number of companies offer so-called "tough" weatherproof/waterproof cameras.
I engage in activities that would make it make sense to use one, or I already own one.

I don't usually think about making pictures when I hike, raft, kayak or ski.

Please comment briefly on your experience with images and wireless transmission, aside from cell phone images.
At the recent Consumer Electronics Show a number of camcorders and cameras with built in WiFi were introduced.
This is an appealing feature and will be an important factor in choosing a camera/camcorder.

Do "lab tests" help you make camera buying decisions?

Please comment briefly on your experience with image stabilization lenses in low light, with slow shutter speeds or when doing macro work.
Do you think that the stabilization trend in lenses will lessen the use of tripods for you?
Yes, with an image stabilization lens tripods are only necessary in rare instances.
8% (55 votes)
No, regardless of using image stabilization lenses, there’s simply no substitute for the image quality you get by using a tripod

I would use both, as each has its purposes and one doesn’t necessarily cancel the use of the other.

Please comment briefly on your thoughts on using the cloud to store your images.
How do you feel about storing your images in the “cloud?”
It makes sense to save space and to have images whenever I want them.
7% (12 votes)
I wouldn’t trust my images to be stored away from my control.
49% (85 votes)
I see it as just another backup to complement my own, and it makes sense to store some images there for safekeeping.

I will take a look as full frame sensors are appealing to me for image quality.
