Tg-2 vs Tg-1

I bought an olympus tg-1 in summer 2012; it was stolen at the airport of moscow in early 2013.

A few days ago I bought the olympus tg-2 as a replacement.

The cameras are similar; processing is a little bit faster on the tg-2.

Hdr mode is much faster on tg-2 because of the reduced resolution (3MP vs 5MP on tg-1)

I wish resolution in hdr mode was user selectable in the menus (firmware upgrade?)

At least hdr mode could be handled like panorama mode with user choice between in camera processing and post processing in olympus viewer.

A-mode is a welcome addition, but the only apertures you can select are f2, f2.8 and f8.

Didn't make test on noise reduction as I already knew what to expect (see last shot.)

Apart from hdr mode (which to me is a downgrade from tg-1) i like this camera.

tg-2 12MP

tg-2 3MP HDR

tg-1 12MP

tg-1 5MP HDR

tg-2 12MP indoor, natural light, iso 100
