The TG-810 is the latest in Olympus' lines of nearly indestructible cameras. Judging from its predecessors, the TG-810 won't be the prettiest camera out there, or even take the prettiest pictures, but we are pretty confident that it'll be the toughest one out there. Most of the toughness ratings are carried over from last year's Tough 8010: the 33-foot waterproofing, 6.6-foot shock rating, freezeproofing and dustproofing, through it's now able to withstand a mammoth 220lbs of pressure. Any user that's managed to lay off the milkshakes and hamburgers should be able to literally stand on the TG-810 (though we really, really don't recommend trying and finding out the hard way that we were wrong). We'd probably recommend different rugged cameras over the TG-810, but if you think you really need the toughest camera out there (you probably don't), this is it.
