Olympus Tough TG-6 review

 

The Essential Review This is TechRadar’s review summary that gives you all the key information you need if you’re looking for quick buying advice in 30 seconds – our usual full, in-depth review follows. The Olympus Tough TG-6 builds...

Olympus Tough TG-6

 

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a modest update to our favorite underwater point-and-shoot camera thanks to its tough design, bright lens, and excellent macro capabilities.

Tough, waterproof build. Add-on lenses and macro lights available. Sharp rear LCD. Wide aperture lens. 4K video. Wi-Fi.

Bottom Line: The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a modest update to our favorite underwater point-and-shoot camera thanks to its tough design, bright lens, and excellent macro capabilities.

… but a piece did break off! ; Only 12MP image resolution ; No fully manual control

While the TG-6 packs some fun new features, they won't warrant an upgrade if you already own the TG-5. However, if you have an older Tough or you're looking for a camera that can go in the sea, get covered in sand, be dropped onto concrete, and still...
