Lens

The TG-1 has something no other rugged model currently has: a bright f2.0 maximum aperture. While it probably won't give you a shallow depth of field like you'd get with an f2.0 lens on a digital SLR or mirrorless compact system camera, it will let in more light, which will come in very handy underwater and in other low-light situations. The ring around the lens easily unscrews, allowing you to attach the converter ring.

The telephoto lens increases the telephoto lens from 4x to 6.4x, or 160mm (35mm equivalent). Both it and the fisheye are waterproof to 40 feet.

Controls

The TG-1's controls look just like those on the company's other Tough cameras. Likewise, it has tap controls where you can tap the sides of the body to perform different functions -- handy when you have gloves on.

GPS

With the GPS and electronic compass functions, location and landmark information are displayed and recorded with photos. The camera is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Google Earth and Picasa. A new rechargeable battery improves battery life from previous Olympus Tough models with GPS. Plus, the built-in manometer records elevation and water depth and displays a warning when the user approaches a depth of 40 feet.
