Olympus is really bringing everything they have to the table with their new Tough camera model. Tough TG-1 has a 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor, a 25-100mm, f/2.0-4.9 4x zoom lens, and a 3-inch 610k OLED display. All of this put inside a practically unbreakable body that can shoot at depths of 40 feet, in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) and after a 6.6 foot fall.
The TG-1 is also capable of shooting videos as well, on land and under the sea.
Packing in so much, one might think there isn’t much left to add. There’s a GPS that identifies over 700,000 landmarks across the world and an e-compass with 3D renders. And with a double-locking battery and HDMI port doors, no water will ever penetrate this camera. The Tough TG-1 will be released in mid June and will be priced around $399, but with all these possibilities, it is definitely worth it.
