No. 3: Kodak Playsport Video Camera

When you're on the move, you need a camera that can keep up with you, come hell or high water. The Kodak Playsport Video Camera, available for $179.95 from Kodak's website, isn't afraid to get wet or to go for a ride.

The waterproof video camera can shoot up to 10 feet under water, and its rugged design allows for crisp 1080p HD videos in almost any environment. Not only can it stand to get a little wet, but the Playsport can survive a drop -- of up to 5 feet, for all the klutzes in the room. A built-in image stabilizer means you can take videos even if you're on a bit of a rocky road.

The LCD Glare Shield feature provides a filter for the display screen to cut down on glare from the sun so you can see your recordings with ease.

In addition to all of these travel-friendly features, the Playsport comes in a variety of colors including black, red and aqua so you can always find it when it's been buried in your backpack.
