Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS packs 12-megapixel sensor, f/2.0 lens, ruggedized housing for $399 — Engadget. The Olympus TG-1 could be the must have second camera in a mojo backpack. According to Engadget : “its 12-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor, 25-100mm, f/2.0-4.9 4x zoom lens and 3-inch 610k OLED display are all wrapped in a reinforced body, capable of flawless shooting at depths of 40 feet, in temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) and after a 6.6-foot fall. With the TG-1, the company is aiming for the pro’s gear bag, bringing features like 30 fps full-res rapid-fire shooting (for 50 consecutive shots, or 220 in a 3-megapixel 60 fps mode),” which means its a pretty damned diverse camera. Have to wait till end of June to get your hands on one and then Ill get to see if the iPad supports its movie file format. but at $399 RRP its very attractive.
