Olympus Tough TG-1 - f2.0 lens, waterproof, shockproof, etc
May 21, 2012

I know the announcement came out a while ago, but I just ran across it:

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/05/08/Olympus-Tough-TG1-iHS-rugged-waterproof-shockproof-12MP-compact-camera

The first shockproof, waterproof compact camera I've seen with an f2.0 lens (f2.0-4.9).

Not sure if it shoots raw, or has manual controls. I know a lot of people in this forum are here because of the s100, thought other people might be interested in knowing that if you want a low light but shockproof and waterproof alternative, there appears to be one now (though it lacks in a number of other areas vs the s100...maybe comparing it to the 500hs would make the most sense).

I know a lot of people ask for something that's good in low light, but that they can also take to the beach, pool, etc...
