SLIDELL, La. Initially designed and built for use on the outside of nuclear submarines, the Tuffcam Model S-512H video camera from Subsea Video Systems Inc. endures difficult environments, including temperature ranges between -140 degrees and 140 degrees F. "Waterproof to 1,000 feet and shockproof to l,000 g's, the camera will survive being boiled in water, frozen at 40,000 feet or struck by a baseball bat," the company said. It measures 2 x 2 x 2.25 inches, weighs 6.7 ounces and contains a recessed tempered-Pyrex lens and nitrogen-charged lens assembly to prevent fogging. Available in NTSC, YC and PAL versions, it provides 512 lines of resolution and is priced at $925.
