Suggestions for a shock-resistant megazoom?

by luciyanna4002 / September 1, 2011 3:25 PM PDT

I'm travelling overseas and would like to have a compact megazoom camera that provides accurate and sharp photos that also happens to be shock-resistant. I'm looking to hopefully spend around $200-$300. There seem to be references to such cameras but never any suggestions. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Check that country's restrictions.

I won't list them but some countries have restrictions on the zoom to 10X or less.

No need to get a surprise or loss.
