Let’s detail the Olympus TG-1 quickly: it’s a 12 megapixel camera with a CMOS sensor that takes f2.0 snapshots with a TruePic VI image processor, high-speed autofocus and a 10x zoom. The exterior of the camera is built to take numerous drops, water, and the other usual fatal elements pertaining to technology. Nice package, Olympus.

Marking a revolution for the Tough Series of Waterproof, Shockproof, Freezeproof, Crushproof and Dustproof compact cameras, the Olympus TG-1 iHS combines incredible durability with iHS technology, the world’s first high-speed bright f2.0 lens on a Tough camera and converter-lens compatibility to create a versatile system camera. The combination of durability and outstanding image quality make it possible to shoot in even the harshest conditions. Capture beautiful underwater scenes and aquatic life, snap photos of dusk-lit peaks or record your ride down the rapids in dazzling 1080p Full HD Video.
