The Olympus Stylus TG-870 is a ruggedized compact camera

The Nikon D5 is, without a doubt, the biggest camera announcement from CES 2016—so far, at least. But if that beastly DSLR is a little too much for you, maybe you'll be interested in what Olympus has to offer. Today, the camera manufacturer introduced the Stylus TG-870, a small rugged shooter with a 16-megapixel CMOS sensor, an ultra-wide-angle lens (21–105mm), 5x optical zoom, GPS, WiFi and 1080p video at 60 fps.

Like the TG-860, this camera's also designed to handle different types of environments: It is waterproof (up to 50 feet), shock-proof (220 pounds) and dust-proof, and Olympus says those aspects have all been improved from those of its predecessor. You can expect it to hit stores in April for $280.
