Olympus Tough TG-310

 

The rugged Olympus Tough TG-310 doesn't offer the zoom range of more expensive models, but its image quality is on par with competing cameras, and it comes at an attractive $200 price.

Modest price for a rugged camera. Waterproof to 10 feet, shockproof to 5 feet, freezeproof to 14°F; Good low-light performance.

Olympus Tough TG-310

 

simple to use, lightweight, quick to process images and easy to download and charge. Video works well and also works underwater with microphone as experienced in snorkelling in Sharm recently.

Just have to remember that the lense is in the top left of the camera when holding and taking pictures
