I realize I run the risk of attracting the ire of the Full Frame Mafia by writing this post, but I am okay with that because in the end, I am not saying M43 is better than FF, I am merely saying it MIGHT be better for you, as it is for me.
When it comes to memory cards, I used to tell people I generally use any name-brand card with high data transfer rates. I never found much advantage to one over the other. Then came the Lexar debacle. I had problems (apparently I am not alone) with Lexar cards failing and even breaking and I decided it was time to look more closely at this topic.
The Olympus Tough TG-6 (Available at B&H or on Amazon) is the little camera that could. I’ve had the previous two versions and enjoyed them. My TG-5 has been a real trooper.

You want a new camera – but which camera? You want to make the best decision you can. You may turn to some of the popular and large online camera forums to get advice. All you have to do is read through those camera forums to find out how NOT to buy a camera. The things that most of these folks comment on baffle me.
