Today Olympus unveiled a new camera to join their range of Tough rugged compact cameras.
This new camera has been named the Olympus Tough TG-5, which follows on from the TG-4 with similar technology to that camera but with some big upgrades that make it a valid option.
These specifications include a 12-megapixel CMOS sensor that comes alongside an f/2.0 wide-angle lens that has a 25-100mm focal length (35mm equivalent).
Technically it is a lower pixel count than the TG-4, however, Olympus says that the pictures that this new camera will be much better thanks to the picture processing tech that they borrowed from the OM-D E-M1 MKII.
On top of that, this sensor will be able to record video at a 4K resolution at up to 30fps, or at a Full HD resolution at up to 120fps.
And of course, because it is a Tough camera, it has a very rugged build.
With the TG-5, you can drop it from a height of up to 2.1-metres, submerge it in up to 15-metres of water, put up to a 100kg weight on it, and freeze it down to -10C.
To top that off, there will be an optional case add-on for the camera that will expand its waterproof capabilities down to 45-metres.
The camera also comes with dual pane anti-fog glass, which means you should be able to see the 3-inch LCD screen on the back even in the cold.
To control it, Olympus has built glove-friendly control dials onto the TG-5, which comes alongside a total of 16 preset scene modes as well as a waterproof HDR shooting mode.
You will be able to pick up this new Olympus TG-5 camera from mid-June in both red and black for £400.
