Olympus Stylus Tough TG-1
Olympus is no stranger to rugged compacts, but its Tough line was falling behind those from other manufacturers. It came back strong this year with the TG-1 and its bright f2 lens and backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, which lets you shoot with less light than competing models.

The good: The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS is water-, dust-, freeze-, shock-, and crushproof; has fast shooting performance for its class; and has a fast lens with the capability to add on converter lenses for more shooting flexibility.
The bad: The TG-1 iHS has some minor design issues, such as a proprietary charging cable, that might turn some buyers off.
The bottom line: The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS combines a bright lens, a high-sensitivity, high-speed sensor, and some nice extras to make it a top rugged compact camera.
