Underwater Images from the Olympus TG-1 "Tough" Camera

The Olympus TG-1iHS Camera"tough" is designed to withstand shock, cold, rain, and yes even immersion to 40'. I decided to put this camera to the "snorkeling test" on a recent trip to Maui to see how it would hold up to a week of water activity. The bottom line: this camera is not only tough, it takes great pictures. Here are a few samples. I will report more on its features in upcoming articles.

Derrick - very impressive. Any special accessory needed to pick up so many colors? Light? Filter?

Hi Jeff,

No special accessories. Just the camera and iPhoto for iOS on the new iPad. They're a great combination.

Hi Jeff, great picts! Have printed any of your underwater photos? Any problems when enlarging? Thanks!
