Best Waterproof – Olympus Tough TG-5
Olympus Tough TG-5 – With the Olympus TG-5, Olympus are offering a number of features that help this compact waterproof camera stand out. Waterproof down to 15m, there’s a bright f/2.0 lens, a 12mp sensor (for improved low-light performance, and improved noise performance), high-speed continuous shooting, 4K video recording, manual controls, and a number of accessories to improve what the camera is capable of. There’s also built-in Wi-Fi and GPS.
Here’s what we had to say about the TG-5:
“The Olympus Tough TG-5 builds on the TG-4 before it, adding a new 12mp sensor, that not only improves noise performance, but in combination with a new image processor, offers high-speed shooting, 4K video, and improved image quality. You can also record high-speed video, with FullHD video recording at 120fps possible. The camera offers a bright f/2.0 lens, making it more suited to underwater photography compared to other waterproof cameras.“
