how to make a brilliant ruggedized camera even better? we would think there are myriad of ways, except not making it too overly rugged looking. for Olympus, the Japanese firm choose to give its new flagship ruggedized shooter, the Olympus STYLUS Tough TG-2 iHS Digital Camera, go deeper (up to 15m or about 50 feet) and let it captures image as close as 1cm with its Super Macro mode, while still maintaining the heart-winning, sleek, sophisticated aesthetic. though, it still inherits quite a few features from the TG-1 such as the 12.0-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor with matched to the TruePic image processor that was originally developed for the Olympus PEN, f/2.0 lens, as well as full HD video recording. other features include shockproof from drop up to 2.1 meters (6.9 feet), cold resistant down to minus 10 degrees Celsius (or 14 in Fahrenheit), crushproof to 100 kgf, assist GPS, electronic compass, a 3.0-inch LCD display, underwater scene modes, built-in pressure sensor for information such as atmospheric pressure and altitude, double lock mechanism, macro LED for lighting up subjects in close proximity shooting, HDMI output control that allow control of some of the camera functions with a TV remote control, Face Detect AF and USB battery charge that allows the camera’s battery to be juiced while connected to a computer. available in a choice of black or red colorway starting from February 8, 2013 with a flagship price tag of $379.99. guess which colorway is our favorite?
