Olympus, $499 olympus.com.au

★★★★ Olympus has made all­weather cam­eras since 2003 but its new model is not only tougher, but bet­ter. The TG-1 is the tough­est snap­per on the

mar­ket, promis­ing to with­stand falls from 2m, tem­per­a­tures as low as -10C and pres­sure of up to 100kg, while also work­ing up to 12m be­low the wa­ter’s sur­face. The 12-megapixel cam­era cer­tainly sur­vived our tests and even bounced off hard

sur­faces, 3-inch OLED screen still work­ing. Even more im­pres­sive are its pho­to­graphic abil­i­ties. The cam­era’s lens now sits front and cen­tre, and of­fers a wide f2.0 aper­ture to let in more light. A 4x op­ti­cal zoom, In­tel­li­gent Auto and scene modes and ded­i­cated full HD video

but­ton also fea­ture.
