If you’re looking for an exceptionally durable and reliable waterproof camera, the Olympus Tough is a good choice. This underwater camera’s unique selling point is that it’s waterproof, shock-proof, crushproof, and freezeproof.

Besides its durability, it also takes excellent photos and can capture a water drop in 4K resolution. The Olympus Tough’s zoom can extend up to eight times, so small details in the distance are easy to capture. Image quality, even without editing is vivid and bright.

The Olympus TG-6 has a very unique lens that allows incredible macro photography without any external lens. The microscope mode allows focusing from as close as 1 Inch and while this camera doesn’t have a full manual mode, you can actually get professional shots with this tiny compact.

Perfect for shallow dives, snorkeling, and swimming with five underwater shooting modes, the Tough underwater camera is also suited to other outdoor pursuits.

One of the most durable picks on the market, this underwater camera is a great choice for shallow dives, snorkeling, and people who want a camera they can take anywhere.
