I'm sure you have a certain someone on your list that's a little "extreme" in his mindset. He thinks mixed martial arts is wimpy, Chuck Norris is his role model & has a Tony Hawk screensaver on his laptop (perhaps the other way around: you get the picture...). He wouldn't use just ANY point & shoot camera. But he WOULD use the new Casio EX-G1, the latest model in the excellent Exilim line of point & shoots. The Casio EX-G1 features a two-layer construction with an outer body made from stainless steel to withstand shock and a waterproof (to 10 ft.) inner body made from polycarbonate, also reinforced with fiberglass for absorbing shock (up to a 7 ft drop). The toughness design elements absorb shocks and protect the camera body. In addition to a high level of basic performance as a camera with 12.1 effective megapixels for taking high resolution photos , the Casio EX-G1 also features interval shooting and other functions utilizing it's unique features. The interval shooting function can automatically take still photos or movies at fixed intervals, enabling users to get great shots when engaged in active sports such as snowboarding or cycling.
