ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY Automatically compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and lowlight areas resulting in more uniform exposure across the image.

The TruePic VI image processor further reduces noise in the shadowy areas allowing for even better back-light adjustment.

This review is from: OLYMPUS Tough TG-630 iHS V104110BU000 Black 12 MP 3.0" 460K Digital Camera
Pros: Fairly intuitive to use, large display screen, and durable. I have owned another Olympus Tough for an old job and I could not tear the thing up. I had it in the field in dirt and grime daily. At that job, I could trash another camera in a week and then I bought an Olympus Tough and after several years it was still functioning smoothly and taking good quality pictures after multiple drops on concrete. I just hope the new models hold up to the bar set by that old one. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing a simple point-and-shoot camera that they don't have to baby. This new one seems to take pretty good pictures and appears to be built very similarly to the one I had before.
Cons: This model doesn't have as many buttons as the old ones so there are some options during shooting that, in my opinion, aren't as quick to change. In order to make the screen larger the camera options (flash, macro-mode, etc.) are all selected with a joy-stick type button. The joy-stick button seems to work fine it's just slower than the older camera because you have to be very deliberate in the direction you press it and have to get through a very short on-screen menu to do things like change into macro mode. It makes it a little harder to work the camera one handed if you're trying to shoot things from an awkward position.
Other Thoughts: I think for the price, these are a pretty good camera if you just need something to take decent work photos in a rough environment or need something to throw in a purse and carry around or take out hiking or similar. The photos will not be super high-quality like more expensive cameras but for generating power-points, printing from a home printer for hanging on walls, putting in a digital-frame, etc it's probably just fine for most peoples uses.
