I'm looking at buying a waterproof camera for kayaking trips. I know the image quality won't get near a DSLR, but I don't want to risk expensive camera equipment in a waterproof housing. Does anyone get good results with such cameras? The sample shots I have seen look okay and they are about to release the new TG-5 model.
Just in case anyone is following this, I received my Olympus TG-5 yesterday. I only had time to try it out in my garden, but so far I'm very impressed. The colours are wonderful and the macro feature far surpasses anything I expected from a compact camera. The RAW files are .ORF which aren't recognised in lightroom, but Olympus have a free photo editing software for these file types.
I have always wanted a tg-4 and promised myself if I found a good secondhand one at a reasonable price I would buy one. But guess what there aren't any, everybody hangs on to them because they are so good lol.
