    Olympus TG-1: new toy & review underway

    I finally decided on a tough, all weather compact camera and after hours of data-mining the internet, I got the Olympus TG-1. It's shock proof, crush proof, water proof, freeze proof, comes with an f2.0 lens and has a host of features that I was looking for for quite a while. The specs are attached below and the local dealer gave me a good deal on it with 24 month warranty from Olympus, an original pouch, a SanDisk 8GB SD card and a free waterproof watch. The GPS, manometer, altimeter, compass and in-camera panoramic stitching are good... so far. Will be putting it through the paces in the coming weeks, especially for Crossing Bridges 9. Pretty tough body though I'm not planning to bounce it off the wall or floor anytime soon.

    Guess you'll be one of the few who'll take photos in the rain during CB-9.

    Noordin: I'm expecting a wet welcome, and would rather use this in the rain and sea instead of my beloved Nikon

    I skipped Olympus Tough series and went for Panasonic's FT coz Oly was too into their xD thingy ~

    Claimed warranty once, and got 1 to 1 replacement ~ happened after a few weeks back from Lang Tengah trip.
    Its cool to tag it along on short trips when my E-3's not around ~ rain n shines.

    but ... guess what ... the F/2 and the Retail Price seem to be quite Interesting ~~

    Took mine out to take some shots with gps on. Hppy with the camera but managed only approximately 100 shots on one charge. water did not stick to the lens as promised in the manual after dipping in sea water. inner surface of the lens fogged up briefly so i need to check if there is any problem.

    i cant remember if i got a 24 month warranty. i think i only got 12 month and no watch at rm1330
