Backscatter has already managed to get their hands on the new Olympus Tough TG-5. But before you get overcome with jealousy, relax—the team has done as proud by putting together a fantastic article taking a first look at the camera.

In the accompanying video, Backscatter’s Robin Dodd gives viewers a guided tour of the TG-5’s impressive features and the implications for underwater shooters. He also introduces the various accessories for the camera as well as the new PT-058 underwater housing. By their estimation, it’s going to be “one of the best compact camera systems of the year”—no less.

Now the only thing left to do is see how the TG-5 and PT-058 fare underwater. We’re definitely going to be taking them for a spin—if we can prize it out of Backscatter’s hands!

Check out the article or just go ahead and watch the video below.
