Olympus makes its top Tough camera tougher
LAS VEGAS--It seems like just a couple months ago Olympus announced the, its first rugged compact with an f/2.0 lens. It was actually in May 2012, so I guess it's not completely out of the question that Olympus is launching its update.
The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-2 iHS doesn't appear to be all that different from its predecessor. It still has a 12-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, a 4x f2.0-4.9 25-100mm lens with an adapter ring for add-on lenses, and a high-res 3-inch OLED screen.
It looks like the biggest differences are that it can now be taken down 50 feet underwater -- 10 feet deeper than the TG-1 -- and a new Microscopic Macro function digitally boosts zoom magnification from 4x to 14x.
