Review – Olympus Tough Series Digital Camera

by | Apr 15, 2013 | Technology

Believe it or not there are still companies making actual cameras.  Smartphones can snap great digital photos but as summer approaches it may be time to invest in a rugged device that can take high quality images and video.

The Olympus TG-2 iHS is shockproof, crushproof, freezeproof and dustproof, according to the company.  Its specs show an astounding waterproof depth rating of 50 feet without a housing.  I would recommend this not just for divers but for active photographers who won’t sacrifice image quality and performance.

It has an ultra-bright, high-speed f2.0 lens, allowing you to capture dramatic low light and high-speed action shots.  It can shoot up to a 12MP resolution and capture full HD video at the touch of a button.

Other features include a built-in flash, 4x optical and 4x digital zoom and an Li-ion battery.  All of this packed into a lightweight 8.1 oz. package.
