OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Olympus TG-4 is the most durable camera currently available. This 16 megapixel camera can be submerged to depths of 50 feet (15 meters). It can survive being dropped from 7 feet (2.1 meters), or being crushed by a 220 pound weight (100 kg). The camera is also freeze-proof to 14 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 C). But what sets this camera apart from other tough cameras is the quality of the pictures it takes, and its quick response time.
