Cameras, Tech Digest news

olympus-tg-1.jpgAfter briefly breaking cover thanks to an over-zealous Amazon listing, Olympus have officially revealed their TG-1 tough cameras.

As tough as a concrete-covered photo-snapping toughman, the TG-1 is waterproof to 12 metres, shock and drop-proof to 2 metres, freezeproof to -10 degrees Fahrenheit, and crushproof to 100kg.

In terms of camera specs, you’re getting a 12MP sensor, with an F20 aperture for sharp, low light image capture. There’s also a 4x optical zoom, GPS, 1080p HD recording and a 10 fps burst mode.

A new conversion ring mechanism is onboard for filters and telephoto shots, while the sae image processor as found in the OMD is also squeezed in.

Due in mid-July, it’s yours for about £360.
