Olympus calls this one the "all weather". The shop I work for has 4 of them and they've been sturdy and reliable. We're utility contractors so they get some abuse. We paid around $200 each for them.Look at the last item in the specs. http://www.dpreview....y_stylus410.asp

I started with the Olympus 310 which is the same as the 410 but 3meg pixels instead of 4. The camera is weather resistant and takes decent shots. I have never had it fail due to weather. I quite often post ride reports in the NW section if your interested in the quality of pictures. Here is a link to a slide show of pictures taken with this camera.

I go for the $100 touch camera's this way if they get trashed it's not too
big a deal. Kodak C330, Canon A410, Olympus D425, all pretty good cameras
that can take a fair amount of abuse and just over 100 bucks.
Most are splash proof, I wouldnt take them out in a downpour though.
Go here to see them... sort by price:

Right now I have a Kodak C300 .... no moving parts (+1) and takes good pics
