A shockproof camera is a camera that can be dropped from a certain height and still function and capture photos and videos after this has happened. The term shockproof comes from the impact that occurs when the camera hits the ground from its fall. Shockproof cameras are not all created equally, with some able to stand the odd small spill and other particularly tough cameras being more suitable to considerable shocks. Let's meet some of the shockproof cameras in our range.
The Nikon Coolpix W300 is one of the toughest, most shockproof models available. As well as being an impressive 2.4m shockproof, the W300 is a whopping 30m waterproof. For weekend adventures away, this shockproof and waterproof camera should be the first thing you pack. The Olympus Tough TG6 is also worth considering, being 2.1m shockproof, 15m waterproof and importantly featuring brilliant low-light imaging performance and 4K resolution video.
For families and casual users, the Nikon Coolpix W150 is worth considering. This camera is not quite as tough as the previous models we have mentioned, but at 1.8m shockproof, you can feel safe to hand it over to the smallest members of your family, knowing that when it inevitably hits the floor, it will still be ready to fire moments later.
