Christine Yan: Life’s tough, but the camera’s tougher

Tough cameras are designed to take whatever nature can throw at them with ease. The Olympus TG-5 will take hard knocks and even be used for underwater photography. But even if that’s not quite your thing, the TG-5’s added protection is reassuring if you aren’t the sort to baby your gear.

“Since I was young, I’ve always loved taking pictures of my family and capturing memorable moments. I usually use my smartphone to take pictures, but after trying the Olympus TG-5, I find that the photos I get are much sharper and more defined. Furthermore, there’s a Wi-Fi feature where I can port the pictures over instantly, after which I can post it on my Instagram (@c.hristineyan). I never knew it was this simple, so I would definitely consider using a proper camera in future. I’d use this on my travels because it’s light and fits well in a small handbag. More importantly, I’m very careless, and the idea of a tough camera really does put my mind at ease, regardless of whether I go snorkelling with it or not.”
