Olympus Tough Series Cameras {TG-610}

Olympus review giveaway holiday gift guideSince participating in the PENReady Project with Olympus, I still reach for my PEN E-PM1™ DSLR on a daily basis. These days I use it a ton indoors, due to the cold weather. My newest discovery with the PEN E-PM1 is how great it is to use indoors, without flash. Even my high-end uber expensive DSLR cannot grab available natural light like the my Olympus can! So you call call me impressed since I thought it would never be top choice in my DSPR collection.

I have to give kudos to Olympus for putting this camera in my hands. It was my first introduction to any of their products, and testing this one has made me a definite fan, now setting my eyes on the E-5. Hi my name is Tammi and I am a camera junkie. #ISaidIt

For my 2011 Holiday Gift Guide I want to highlight the Olympus Tough Series cameras {with video}. Tough is right when it boasts features that make it shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof. Sounds like this baby can hold its own when up against a family of chaos, yet still be compact to grab on the go. It’s important to choose a camera that fits into your lifestyle, read below because I don’t think there’s a feature thats missed in this model…
