Another family vacation with the TG-5 - some examples of why we love this camera

Hello all.

We just returned from a family vacation in Punta Mita, Mexico.

Although I brought all of my photo gear, once again the TG-5 was used for almost everything. We can take it to the pool, beach, snorkeling, and I can give it to my kids and let them shoot all day without worrying about the camera. In addition, my wife likes that she can upload pictures easily to her phone to share on social media with very little effort.  I did make some time for more "serious" photography with my FF Canon gear but for family time the TG-5 is ideal.

I would love to see Olympus upgrade the Tough series with a 1 inch sensor even though it would make all of my lens accessories likely obsolete. I think the increase in quality would be worth the expense.


Punta Mita Sunset - sunset scene mode captured the colors briliantly

A Happy Tourist - with auto fill flash

A Local - with Teleconverter

The Marietas Islands - with Fisheye Converter

Snorkeling - underwater mode did a good job capturing the colors, float strap kept kids from losing the camera
