    It's not u-4/3, but here's a link to an interesting Olympus camera ad. Don't think I'd want to try this with my E-M5 though. Enjoy... Dougal Wilson: Blink

    That is Madison Avenue at it's finest. It gets the point across entertainingly.

    They could have tied the camera to a motorboat propeller like a certain wristwatch of days gone by.

    My wife and I have gone through two of the Tough P&S series. Yeh... typical P&S quality but they are tough. First one was at the time the high end it was good. Survived years of abuse from our son... until the rear display simply gave up and stopped working. The second one was purchased when we had a bit less to spend. It was a lower end model of the tough series. My wife missed the old one.

    So the 2nd one is now the one we give to our now 6 year old to shoot. Times are a bit easier and I spent a little more for a Fuji XF1 which certainly won't survive a 6 year old but is much better in terms of quality.

    nice one! i was going to buy one for my 7-year old last Christmas but when I tried the store model, the glass in front of the lens came off! LOL ... i'm sure it's tougher than that based on the ad, right? ;)
