Yanko Design agrees: Rugged compacts needn't look it

You don't see the nuts and bolts in one designer's concept for a Nikon Coolpix eXtreme.

After seeing this year's offerings at CES and PMA, I was disappointed by how Frankensteinian rugged compacts are, with all their nuts and bolts hanging out.

So I hope someone somewhere heeds the new concept cam by Yanko Design's Camillo Vanacore for a flashy faux Coolpix dubbed "eXtreme," which he describes as "an all-weather, all-terrain coolpix device that looks sleek and really knows how to rough it out!"
