Even by the extremely high standards of Olympus' category-defining TOUGH range of cameras, the new TG-1 TOUGH flagship takes remarkable pictures - and boasts some remarkable features. First and foremost its superb, extra-wide aperture f2.0 high-speed lens that can capture excellent-quality images even in the permanent twilight found 12 metres underwater. Which is exactly where this camera is engineered to excel. The TG-1 is waterproof to 12m, shockproof to 2m, crushproof to 100kg and freezeproof to -10°C. For all-action risk-takers or reef-loving divers, it's peace of mind sealed in a stylish all-metal box. And what a box of high-tech innovations that is. For serious photographers, waterproof fisheye and tele converter lenses are available (via an optional adapter). There's Olympus' iHS (Intelligence, High Sensitivity and High Speed) technologies, plus a colour-rich, high-contrast, anti-reflective OLED display, GPS and e.compass and three new shooting modes: Low Light, Super Sports and Super Macro. It's an impressive package that puts rival compacts firmly in their place.
