The Olympus Tough TG-6 is the rugged affordable digital camera you want for your collection. Its list is long: it is waterproof, dust-proof, shock-proof, crush-proof, and freeze-proof with a fog deterrent.
Still, it manages to offer a high-resolution F2.0 lens with a maximum 8x zoom and a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor. It is powered by a TruePic VIII Image Processor, offering four macro shooting modes within the variable macro system.

You are not limited underwater, either, with five underwater shooting modes and three white balance modes. If you prefer video, you can shoot 4K and full HD movies with this camera. Because it is meant to be used outdoors, there are added bonuses, too, like built-in WiFi and a GPS module within the included Field Sensor System.
