Olympus Tough TG-1 Digital Camera Review
Olympus brings a bright lens to the tough-cam pool, boosting all-around image quality.
More than a dozen waterproof cameras have hit the market within the last year. On the whole, they're better than the tough-cams that came before them. But even with all the improvements, they're really only suitable for shooting outdoors.
That's why the Olympus Tough TG-1 arrives with some buzz behind it. It's just as durable as the hardiest adventure-ready cameras, but stuffed with the brightest lens we've seen in the class. The hope is that it'll be the first tough-cam with serious photographic chops.
In practice, the TG-1 is the most versatile camera in its class. It isn't perfect, but most folks in the market for an adventure-ready shooter should take a look.
Check out our 7-camera waterproof shootout to see how the year's best tough-cams compare to each other.
The TG-1 is available now in gray/silver for an MSRP of $399.
