Olympus Tough TG-5: verdict

The TG-5 feels and performs like a premium rugged compact, delivering high quality stills and videos as well as the nigh-on unbreakable build quality of an adventurer’s tool.

While the price is fairly high in comparison to rivals like the RM1220 Fujifilm XP120, the TG-5’s talents go above and beyond the basics – look no further than the slo-mo, 4K video capabilities and the gorgeous macro mode.

If those are important to you, it might just be the perfect photographic sidekick for your extreme holiday.
