Olympus rolls out Tough TG1-iHS digital camera
The Japanese company Olympus has prepared a new product for all photography lovers that nicely surprises with sleek design and some really rare functions and capabilities.
For one thing, and the name suggests it – the Olympus Tough TG1-iHS digital camera is one tough camera! Being the first of the Tough series the camera is water resistant (can survive depths of up to 12 meters), shock resistant (will survive if dropped from 2 meters), temperature resistant (can work at temperatures as low as –10 degrees Celsius), dust-protected on the inside and pressure resistant (can survive pressure created by a 100 kg object).
The DSLR Olympus Tough TG1-iHS camera also comes with the company PEN Series technology that allows the camera to focus on objects very rapidly thanks to the built-in “super sport mode” – a technology that can shoot 60 frames per second at 3 MP. The camera also sports a new 12 MP Back Side Illuminated CMOS display that can play images with high quality.
Other specs of the novelty include a TruePi VI processor that can process photos taken even in very low light conditions, 4x optical and 8x digital zoom, 3-inch OLED display that can record 1080p Full HD video, GPS, a digital compass, Google Earth and access to the Picasa social network.
Expected in June 2012 the Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS DSLR camera will cost around 400 USD.
