The top choice for all-weather models in 2013, the Olympus Stylus TG-2 blends a tough exterior with the capability to take high quality images. One of the key perks of the TG-2 is it's fast, f2.0 lens--but when that isn't enough, the TG-2 can actually add lens options, like telephoto and a fish eye. The TG-2 includes two of the manual modes with aperture priority and programed auto. The TG-2 can go as deep as 50 feet, which is more than many competing models, plus the faster lens allows for decent images with the limited lighting underwater.

Hi, I’m Andy. I’ve been taking pictures for just about as long as I’ve been old enough to hold a camera. I studied photography in community college after high school but was encouraged to follow a career path that was more stable. I do gigs here and there on the side but never took the leap to focus my efforts full-time. When Pam reached out to me through a mutual friend, I jumped on the opportunity to be a writer. Favorite type of photography: macro and street.
