Olympus Tough TG-1 review


Price as reviewed:



The Olympus Tough TG-1 produces consistently sharp photos with great colours. It’s not one of the cheapest compacts around, but it packs a lot of features, including GPS and underwater shooting capability. The camera is small enough to fit in a pocket or handbag, and produces great images in a wide variety of scenarios.
