This compact and lightweight digital camera lets you document your adventures even in extreme conditions. It’s waterproof as deep as 33 feet, so it’s perfect for snorkeling, kayaking, or rain forest hikes. It’s shockproof up to four feet, so it can weather bumps and falls. It’s dustproof, so neither beach nor desert will damage it. And it withstands subzero temperatures without a glitch. It features a digital microscope mode that can focus on objects as close as one centimeter to the camera, and it also captures 720p high-definition video at 30 frames per second. A 14-megapixel sensor and wide-angle 5X optical zoom ensure high detail whether near or far.

Please note: The carabiner and strap can scratch the camera screen. Take care that the carabiner is not bumping against the camera when stashed in a backpack or pocket.

No bird feeder is 100% predator-proof, but this grid-like design is one of the most effective we've tested for keeping aggressive blue jays and wily squirrels at bay. Developed with the British Trust for Ornithology, this feeder's epoxy-coated steel globe lets birds perch safely inside while keeping predators out. The rugged design assures a long life of year-round service. Fill the polycarbonate feeding tube with 14 oz. of sunflower or wild-bird mix.
