A lot of people question the wisdom of buying point and shoot cameras these days. What is the point when we all have such great cameras on our phones? Olympus makes a strong counterargument with its Tough TG 5.

Right out of the box Olympus’ new point and shoot is ready to take on nearly any challenge. It boasts an anti-freeze build that can operate at temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit, a shockproof body that can withstand 7 foot drops, waterproofing up to 50 feet, and crush-proofing up to 220 pounds. More than just rugged, the camera can capture extreme situations with ease thanks to its 20 frames per second capability. Still not impressed? Integrated wifi makes uploading and sharing on the go incredibly straight-forward, while special instruments on the camera track your data and give you readouts on things like location, speed, temperature, and elevation with each photo. The icing on all of this is that the Tough TG 5 can shoot ultra HD 4K video. So yeah, your phone can tweet and take photos at the same time – but don’t even try comparing it to this beast of a digital camera.
