Features and Benefits
If you are researching tough cameras, chances are you are reading a lot about the Olympus Tough range and with good reason. With a range of models, ready to accompany you in the harshest and most trying of conditions, the ever-popular Olympus Tough range has become a go-to option for the more adventurous. Waterproof and shockproof to varying degrees, as well as being protected from dust and extremes of temperature, the Olympus Tough range will have something to offer everyone; from the beginner searching for a point and shoot camera that can be confidently carried in a backpack all day long, with no risk of damage, to the jet-setting enthusiast, destined to venture to the more extreme corners of the world, capturing exciting images all the way.
At the entry level of the range we have the Stylus Tough TG860 and TG870, two family-friendly models that bolster built in WiFi and 16 megapixel sensors, as well as sturdy 15 metre waterproof and 2 metre shockproof ratings. Even at this budget price you do not feel like you are making too much of a sacrifice - both of these cameras are tough enough to withstand much more than your average spill and bump, while allowing you to capture consistently high-quality photographs. Those with a little more in their budget can consider the excellent TG4 which contains the same sturdy features, while adding RAW image capture and a bright f2 lens, both combining to offer brilliant image quality which comes in particularly handy when shooting in the low light conditions found underwater.
At the top of the range sits an exceptional action-cam, the TG Tracker. This rugged performer is the latest addition to the Olympus Tough family and it contains the same strong build quality - with waterproofing being increased to a 30 metre rating - while its main focus in terms of image capture is well and truly on the video side of the field. Ultra HD 4K quality video is on offer with the TG Tracker, which allows you to capture all of your adrenaline-fueled adventures with cinematic quality, and we mean all! - the TG Tracker features a wide lens with a 204 degree angle of view!
