Characterized by its exceedingly durable design, the Tough TG-6 from Olympus is a sleek point-and-shoot capable of handling a wide variety of adventures. Featuring a 12MP BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VIII image processor, the TG-6 offers notable image clarity and low-light performance to ISO 12800, along with fast 20-fps continuous shooting, 4K30p video recording, and high-speed Full HD 1080p shooting at 120 fps. Complementing the shooting capabilities is a versatile 4x optical zoom lens, which spans a 25-100mm equivalent range, and has an f/2 maximum aperture to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions.
BUILT FOR ADVENTURE
You live for the outdoors. Hiking steep mountain trails. Backpacking through a desert canyon. Skiing in the wilderness. The Tough TG-6 is ready for adventure. It’s built to endure all the extreme environments you love exploring. You can drop it. Step on it. Go deep underwater or out into a freezing blizzard. It just keeps on shooting awesome stills and video. Packed with pro features, you’ll nail difficult shots — even in low light. Shoot intricately detailed macro photos and unique shots underwater with vivid color. The lightweight, compact Tough TG-6. Engineered to survive the world’s toughest places.
Weather can turn nasty in minutes. A freak downpour quickly soaks everything. Plummeting cold exposes your camera to dangerous temperatures. The Tough TG-6 handles it all. Thanks to a system of seals and double lock construction, water, dust, dirt, snow and cold stay outside where they belong. Embark on your next adventure and be confident your camera is ready for any weather, anytime.
It’s happened to practically everyone with a camera. You go from air conditioning to high humidity and suddenly there’s condensation all over the lens. That won’t happen with the Tough TG-6. The lens features hermetically sealed, dual pane protective glass to prevent fogging. Your lens stays clear and ready for action.
The Tough TG-6 features a high-speed, bright F2.0 wide angle lens. Use the optional LB-T01 Lens Barrier to keep dirt and dust off the lens and prevent scratching. Open and close the barrier with a quick turn — even with gloves.
A SYSTEM BUILT AROUND A CAMERA
The Tough TG-6 sits at the center of an expansive accessory system. The Sports Holder lets you shoot while the camera is secured to you. The Float Strap stops your camera from sinking while shooting on the water. The Silicone Jacket keeps the Tough TG-6 from getting scratched and lets you firmly grip the body. That’s just a few of many accessories designed to help you get the best performance from your camera.
HANDLES THE TOUGHEST BUSINESS
If you’re shooting in tough work conditions, we have the camera for you. That’s because it can take the abuse any construction site dishes out or survive the rigors of traveling from one crime scene to another — making it standard equipment for any law enforcement agency. Besides being nearly indestructible, the Tough TG-6 features GPS so you’ll have an accurate record of where your shots were taken. The Date Imprint feature stamps your photos with the date and time for easy cataloging.
The TG-6 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
Waterproof-rated to IPX8 for use underwater to depths of 50' / 15m
Freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14°F / -10°C
Shockproof to falls from 7' / 2.1m high
Crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf / 100 kgf of pressure
Dustproof-rated to IP6X to protect the internal components of the camera
Also benefitting the camera's use outdoors, the lens has been sealed with double-pane glass to prevent fogging and condensation. The camera body design has been configured to permit direct operation while wearing gloves, included a large zoom lever, accessory lock button, and convenient dial control.
12MP BSI CMOS Sensor and TruePic VIII Processor
Utilizing a 12MP BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VIII image processor, the TG-6 offers a mixture of speed and sensitivity to suit both photo and video applications. The BSI design of the sensor affords cleaner image quality at higher sensitivities, up to ISO 12800, for working in low-light conditions, and the processor further helps to reduce noise and expand the dynamic range. The sensor's cover glass design has also received an anti-reflective coating to help suppress flare and ghosting when working in bright conditions. Additionally, the processor avails a 20-fps continuous shooting rate in raw as well as the ability to record UHD 4K30p video and high-speed Full HD 1080p video at up to 120 fps.
4x Optical Zoom Lens
Spanning wide-angle to telephoto focal lengths, the built-in 4x optical zoom lens covers a 25-100mm equivalent range and has a bright f/2 maximum aperture to suit working in low-light conditions. Additionally, image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 2.5 stops to further aid in creating sharp imagery with slower shutter speeds.
Field Sensor System and Built-In Wi-Fi
Ideal for recording data while shooting in the outdoors, the Field Sensor System includes a GPS module, manometer, compass, and a temperature sensor. This data, along with the photos and movies themselves, can be transferred to a smartphone via Wi-Fi where the tracking data can be embedded or overlaid onto the images themselves using the Image Track app. Additionally, both photos and videos can be searched-for using recorded tracking data.
