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. I’ve taken it to the Arctic where I stood on the bow of a boat, in 12 foot seas…I’ve taken it to the swamps of Florida where it was hot, humid and wet…I’ve taken it to the concrete jungles of Hong Kong to the tops of some of the tallest buildings in the world and I’ve taken it to the cobblestone streets of central Kiev – no matter where I have been, I always have the Tough camera with me and it is WAY better than you would expect it to be. It’s versatile, rugged but most importantly fun.

Olympus’ Pro Capture mode allows you to take pictures before you – take pictures. Pro Capture takes advantage of the camera’s electronic shutter. Once you half-press the shutter, the camera starts filling a buffer. When you finally press the shutter, a pre-determined number of images that occur BEFORE and AFTER the actual shutter press are recorded.
