Olympus Tough TG-320

 

The waterproof Olympus Tough TG-320 isn't as rugged as some of its competitors, and photos taken at higher ISOs lack fine detail. At less than $200, the affordability factor makes it appealing, but you can do better at the same price point.

Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. Low price for a ruggedized camera

Not as rugged as competitors. Limited zoom range. Overzealous noise reduction

The TG-320 lags behind the competition in terms of speed. It takes a full 2.2 seconds to start up and shoot, makes you wait 1.8 seconds between photos, and notches a 0.6-second shutter lag. The Canon PowerShot D20 ($349.99, 3.5 stars) does a better job...

Olympus TOUGH TG-320First Impressions Review

 

Olympus' new TG-320 is the latest addition to their Tough series of compact, ruggedized cameras. It is aggressively priced at $179.99, and the company is positioning it as a worry-free camera for families and entry level users looking for a model they...

Olympus has wisely situated their Tough TG-320 between the Kodak Easyshare Sport and the Sony TX10, striking a balance between cost and style, a balance that we think is ideal.

Olympus Stylus Tough TG320

 

The Stylus Tough TG-320 is a durable waterproof digital camera, and while it has some nice advanced features, those features are not very intuitive. The 14-megapixel photos look fine, but if you're looking for professional-quality photographs, this...

This camera offers advanced features like 3D image capture and panoramic picture taking

The shutter speeds are too slow to effectively capture any fast action

This underwater camera is very durable, but there's a bit of a learning curve when it comes to using the more advanced features.
