The Olympus TG-810 is the latest in the TOUGH lineup. As the flagship camera in this line, Olympus has now upped the ante, claiming that the TG-810 is “crushproof.” Other adjectives that describe this camera’s ruggedness include, waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and scratch resistant. Frankly, I’m a little disappointed that Olympus makes a camera that is crushproof, yet only scratch resistant…
All jokes aside, the TG-810 leads headlines Olympus’ lineup of rugged cameras with a 14MP sensor, 5x optical zoom (28-140mm equivalent), 720p HD video capture and a nice 3-inch, 920k-dot resolution LCD. Additionally, the TG-810 sports a GPS unit and electronic compass, which makes it even more of an outdoor-ready camera.
The TG-810 should be available in April at an initial retail price of $399.99. Check availability on Amazon.com.
