Olympus has been making "tough" waterproof cameras for several years now, including the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000, which I reviewed a few years ago.
Olympus has changed the way it names its tough camera in the past few years, but these models still have the same distinctive look they've had for a few years now, as showcased in one of the newer Olympus tough cameras available, the TG-820 iHS.
The TG-820 iHS, which is available in black, silver, red, or blue camera bodies, has an MSRP of $249.99. (Compare Prices) Its tough features include the ability to survive a fall of up to 6.6 feet, as well as operating in water depth up to 33 feet.
Its photography features are a bit limited, as is typical with "tough" cameras. The TG-820 iHS does make use of a CMOS image sensor, which helps it perform better in low-light conditions. This model offers 12 megapixels of resolution, a 5X optical zoom lens, full 1080p HD video, and a high-resolution 3.0-inch LCD. The TG-820 iHS also measures just 1 inch in thickness, which is nice for a waterproof camera.
