Fujifilm FinePix S1

A big bridge camera with a crazy-long zoom len, the FinePix S1 is a good choice for anyone who wants the look and feel of a dSLR, but not the expense or weight. It's the only one that has a dust- and weather-resistant body, perfect for whatever post-grad adventures are to come.

A good bang-for-your-buck action cam. You can record all your daring feats, but you won't go broke doing it.

Olympus Stylus XZ-2

A great choice for those who want the control of a dSLR, but not the size. The pricing jumps around for this model, though, so only consider it if you can get it for less than its $600 full price.
