I saw this new Tough and watched the video that was posted and was so impressed with what they indicated it would do. I thought, Ok I will try it. My employees are less then gentle on cameras due to what they are used for. This camera takes much nicer pictures then that of its older models. I opted for the lense, I would not say the fish eye works very well but the telephoto lense, works really well. I am not a very technical speaking camera reviewer. I just know, that it will stand the test of time, it can be smashed, dunked for 24 hours, tossed in sand, thrown in a freezer, and still function like it came out of the warm dry box. When quality pictures matter, give this one a try. The one thing I did notice is, that the decorative plate around the lens, screws off to allow an adapter to be screwed on for the lens device. However, make sure you have a place to store the decorative plate as they can get lost quite easily, leave the adapter ring on the lens also, it will be easier to keep track of it. Oh and the double locks really and truly work like a charm. I loved it so much, I bought 2.
