Do you mind telling us what kind of work you do? Would a point and shot work for you?

I'm partial to Nikon. This is one that I'm getting for my son Hayden to shoot candids while on location shooting subjects.

You can get refurbished Olympus Cameras for cheap. Talking specifically their, action cameras. I have 2. 1 is close to 10 yrs old, 5 mgpxl, and has lived it's life at the bottom of my fishing backpack. Still going strong. The other is newer, and a 12mgpxl, bound for the same fate eventually. They have proven to be some very good, knockaround cameras. For what you are doing, they would be a good choice to consider.

2nd Olympus, tg4 is the model I have. Waterproof, shockproof, bad mamajama. When I don't have my Nikon dslr it is what I use.
