I’m known to be one of the clumsiest people around. If you’ve met me you’ll know this is true. That’s why I feel Olympus has made its latest product just for me. The Olympus Tough TG-820 compact camera is a thing of beauty and it has been made to withstand all kinds of shocks and drops.
This thing is waterproof, so if I buy one and drop it in a puddle it won’t matter. It’s also shockproof so providing I don’t drop it from anything higher than two metres it will survive to tell the tale.
I could also go out in minus temperatures and it will still be fine, providing I don’t take it out into minus ten or below. But believe me, if it gets that cold I’ll be staying indoors and introducing my camera to the delights of marshmallows and hot chocolate.
I can also happily sit on this camera because it is crushproof. In fact, since it can withstand as much as 100kg, half my family could sit on it simultaneously. This is a tough and superbly designed camera that is meant for active or clumsy people and I love it.
It comes in red, blue or silver finishes, with movie recording and 12 megapixels under the hood as well. With magic filters to make photography even more interesting, there is no doubt that this baby will please an awful lot of people. The Olympus Tough definitely lives up to its name.
