The Tough TG-7 is the latest entry into OM System’s (formerly Olympus) rugged camera line. While smartphones may have eclipsed compact cameras in terms of image quality, none match the TG-7’s abilities to be dunked into 50 feet of water, dropped from almost 7 feet, stepped on by a pretty heavy person, or just get smashed against a rock.
In this sample gallery, you can take a look at this camera’s image quality for yourself. Due to the unusual lighting conditions at the ‘touch tank’ at the Seattle Aquarium, the white balance was adjusted via Adobe Camera Raw.
