Tough TG-6

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a waterproof tough camera, which updates the TG-5, and Olympus has announced that a red version will be available exclusively from department store John Lewis. 

The TG-5 is still one of the best waterproof cameras available but the TG-6 brings a higher resolution screen, new underwater modes, improved macro photo options, and a new range of accessories.
