Get a cheap one like for under $150. Get the insurance on it so when it breaks not if it breaks you can get it replaced.

Battery life and type of memory card are important.

I bought a Fuji wide angle for $125. No complaints after 4 months.

Check out Olympys Stylus series. Shockproof, Waterproof, and Freezeproof. Whomever designed these cams must have owned a sled.

Another vote for the stylus, not as good quality wise as my dads sony, but I've put it through everything(sunk my sled with the camera in my jacket and swam to shore and it still worked).

If your not very good at anticipating shots, you better get a SLR. With the ordinary digital camera there is always that time of delay factor to consider. A digital SLR may not be as compact, but it definitely takes better action shots.

I use a Kodak easyshare. 5 megapixels and lots of features. Its a bit big, won't fit in my pocket but I just strap it to my riser bar so it makes it easy to get to and then I take more photos. Also the battery is important. Its rechargable and will take probably 400 photos in a day even in the cold.

I am on my second Canon digital elf. the first one lasted 7 years. I was totally happy, so I bought an elf 750.
It is super small, takes great pics, as far as a point and shooter.
So far I am super happy with it. Paid 230 CAD Edit: These pics are a photobucket, so the quality is not all there. The originals are way more defined.

I'll second the PENTAX Optio WP. Small, lots of features, decent pictures, movie and speed frame modes and the peace of mind that its waterproof. Only drawback is that it doesn't have a viewfinder, only the screen so it takes a while to get used to using it and framing the shot.
