Ballsy Spanish website Clipsite decided to put Olympus’s claims to a real test, pouring two points of water over the camera as the reviewer happily posed for pictures, firing off snaps as the water cascaded down on to the OM-D.

Happily, the camera emerged triumphant, and continued shooting despite the downpour.
