Snowboarding in uncharted maiden powder, scuba diving over tropical coral reefs – all in a day's work for your average Stuff workie, and for the new 8MP Canon Ixus 860 IS now it's been graced with this moisture-loving WP-DC17 case.Being fully waterproof it's fine for a spot of underwater snappery and being shockproof it's rather well suited to the slopes.Couple that with the 860's image stabilisation for dealing with shivering hands and the wide-angle lens with 3.8x optical zoom and you have the perfect holiday cam. There's even a special 'snow' scene mode. Now, which way are the green slopes?EssentialsCanon IXUS 860 IS, WP-DC17 Price: £300, £160On sale: Now Contact: CanonRelated stories:12MP Pentax A40 is ‘Head and Shoulders’ above the restSanyo unfolds world's smallest HD camcorderBenQ's super slim T800 piles on the pixels
