“Just when you thought a TOUGH couldn’t get any tougher, the new TOUGH range takes toughness to a whole new level. Whatever your camera has to put up with, now there’s no need to worry. Thanks to Olympus’ toughest ever technology, the new TOUGH cameras are virtually indestructible. They’re waterproof**, shockproof***, freezeproof and scratch resistant to an unprecedented degree. A sliding double lock mechanism for port and battery protection and additional lens barrier mean your TOUGH will survive just about anything, from a food fight at a kids’ birthday party to an unexpected fall when you have to juggle your phone and camera to take a call. What’s more, TOUGH cameras offer a host of cutting-edge features that deliver excellent image quality, usability and connectivity in any shooting situation. You can shoot 14 Megapixel still photos with the dramatic realism of 3D and, thanks to Eye-Fi card compatibility, automatically upload stills and movies wirelessly to your favourite website or a PC.”
