Casio G.BROS. GV-10


Casio's latest offering ain't no wimp, designed to withstand rain, snow and dirt. Faced with such a challenge, we had to put the GV-10 through its paces to see if it checked out.

Water and dust resistant; tough shock-resistant construction; Best Shot mode

Performance is sluggish when battery gets low; short battery life; insufficient flash coverage
