Unbreakable

Just when everyone thought the Tough range couldn’t get any tougher, Olympus launches the TG-810

Built to survive in conditions that would leave most cameras in more than one ‘intentional’ piece, the TG-810 is the latest flagship model to join Panasonic’s Olympus Tough line-up. Panasonic may

have been a bit optimistic in calling it the ‘ultimate indestructible camera’ but this is without a doubt one seriously tough piece of kit. Not only is it waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, it is also crushproof.

And with its built-in manometer, unique three-sensor GPS, electronic compass and high-resolution, glare-resistant LCD, this is a stylish camera that will surely be an ideal companion for an active lifestyle.

In addition to GPS and electronic compass, the camera has three sensors to record the direction in which it is pointing (even when it’s turned off), making it an excellent piece of kit for finding your way in unfamiliar surroundings

A sliding double lock mechanism provides the necessary protection for the battery, card slots and ports

With multitude sensors, you can check your latitude, longitude, altitude, shooting direction, date and time or even air and water pressure while taking a picture

The Tough flagship is the world’s first camera that’s crushproof to a weight of 100kg, so an adult can tread on it and it’ll keep going fine 18 / TECH

The sliding double lock mechanism and additional metal lens barrier ensure the TG-810 is waterproof to a depth of 10m, shockproof to a height of 2m and freezeproof up to -10°C Thanks to double-durable lens and port technology, the camera is scratch resistant
