OLYM­PUS TOUGH TG-820

Olym­pus $399 olym­pus.com.au ★★★★★ This isn’t Olym­pus’ first tough cam­era but with a 10m dive re­sis­tance, 12-megapixel res­o­lu­tion, the abil­ity to cap­ture full high-def­i­ni­tion video and grab au­dio even un­der­wa­ter, it’s prob­a­bly one of the best, tough­est cam­eras around. Even a pad­dle through icy water didn’t slow it down. It earned bonus points for con­tin­u­ing to film af­ter be­ing jolted out of my hand while I was slid­ing down a hill. But it wasn’t in­vin­ci­ble: the pro­tec­tive screen cover did suf­fer some scratch­ing when it was crushed un­der me as I crawled through mud, dirt and gravel. Noth­ing that would stop you from us­ing it again, though.
