The Olympus TG-810 does everything your camera does, except this thing won’t die from exposure to the elements. For one, it works underwater down to depths of 33-feet. And unlike your wimpy little camera, it will also withstand shooting in blizzard snow conditions, drops from over 6-feet, and it’s crushproof up to 220-lbs. In other words, you can’t destroy on accident and maybe not even on purpose. Remember that when you’re shooting HD video or photos that could get you fired.

Just pan the camera across the scene and the images automatically link together to create stunning wide panoramas without distortion. It also has about 20 other tech features to keep you from blowing the shot. Would you expect any less?
Many of the new compact handheld video cameras are kinda useless when they’re not being “handheld.” If you’ve used a beer bottle for a tripod lately, you know.
