“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.”

“Ready for anything – You name it, OLYMPUS TOUGH cameras can handle it. They’re packed with the toughest ever technology. Even deep underwater, a sliding double lock mechanism protects the battery, card slots and ports while an additional lens barrier (metal on the TG-610, hard glass on the TG-310) safeguards the optical zoom lens. Thanks to this doubly tough protection, the TG-610 is waterproof to fully five metres, the TG-310 to an impressive three metres. Both cameras are freezeproof to -10°C (14°F) and shockproof to a height of 1.5 metres, so there’s no need to worry when young children get hold of them and decide to play catch, submarines or ‘let’s hide stuff in the freezer’.”

Olympus Tough TG-610
Olympus has announced the new Olympus Tough TG-610 – apart from being waterproof (5m), dustproof, freezeproof, and shockproof, it features a wide angle 5x optical zoom lens (28-140mm), 3″ screen with 920k pixels, 720p HD Video, HDMI out, 3D photo shooting, ISO80 to 1600, Panoramic shot, SDHC / SDXC support, anti-shake sensor, and USB Charging. The OLYMPUS TOUGH TG-610 is available silver, black, blue and red for €249 from February.

Olympus Tough TG-610 Back

“You don’t have to take an OLYMPUS TOUGH TG-610 outside to appreciate it’s outstanding build and image quality – but it’s outside that the technology really comes into its own. Whether it’s the local pool or a tropical reef, the Automatic Underwater White Balance feature optimises settings like white balance to deliver Cousteau-like shots of life beneath the waves. It’s also outside that the three inch, 920,000 dot Super Precision HyperCrystal III LCD for TOUGH comes into play. This high-resolution, ultra scratch-resistant display delivers beautifully bright and clear images that are a joy to share – even in direct sunlight. A special layer in the LCD cuts down reflection for better visibility, so it’s easier to frame, review and share movies and stills. An impressive optical zoom is another bonus in the open air. For those close-ups that make action shots special, the TG-610 comes with a 5x wide optical zoom (28-140mm). Of course, both models are packed with the features that make every Olympus camera easier than ever to use, from Dual Image Stabilisation for reducing blur to Face Detection, Intelligent Auto Mode (i-Auto) and AF Tracking. “
