How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

Olympus takes the waterproof point-and-shoot to a new level with the TG-1, which includes a fast f/2 lens that gives it the best low-light performance in its class. It takes very good stills compared to other rugged cameras, along with solid HD video. If its 4x zoom lens isn't long enough, Olympus sells a waterproof teleconverter that bumps it up to almost 7x, along with a fisheye lens for wide-angle shots. On top of that, the TG-1 includes not just GPS but a compass and a manometer to warn you when you're approaching its 40-foot underwater limit. If you need to go deeper, Olympus sells an optional housing that increases its range to 135 feet.
