Nikon Coolpix S52c

Picked one of these up on sale a few years ago. I needed something that would live in the farm truck so I'd have something for documentation when I needed it. It has taken a beating in there along with various tools but it still works. The photos are not the sharpest or best exposed, but they're adequate for the purpose I got it for. The camera is tough enough to withstand being piled under heavy stuff and exposed to a lot of dirt and dust.

The only problem I've had is that the battery goes dead after a few months. Not really unexpected. I have to be more reasonable about charging it occasionally. I wouldn't want to use this for my primary camera, but for an emergency tool it works fine.
