The definitive high-image-quality Tough camera. Relive your adventures with the TG-5.
Whether it be in the mountains, on the beach, or in the snow, the Tough series can withstand the most punishing environments. The TG-5 is the pinnacle of the Tough series, and its new image sensor and new TruePic VIII image processor deliver significant improvements to image quality. It is equipped with a Field Sensor System which records various field data so you can recreate the shooting experience on your smartphone. Take this camera with you to make outdoor activities, such as mountain climbing and diving, even more fun.
Further advanced image quality and Tough performance
The TG-5 is equipped with the latest image sensor and image processor, and a bright f/2.0 high-resolution lens for high image quality. Its Tough performance and anti-fog dual-pane protective glass make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.
High-resolution f/2.0 lens
The TG-5 features both Tough performance and high image quality, along with a high-resolution, 4x optical zoom lens. The bright f/2.0 lens makes it possible to use a fast shutter speed to reduce subject blur even when capturing moving subjects in dark locations.
Folded optics zoom lens
This model achieves the brightest aperture value, f/2.0, for a folded optics type lens. Lenses developed with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens for high image quality.
Bright 4x zoom lens
The TG-5 is equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens. The lens provides a broad range of photography, from a wide-angle bird's-eye view of scenic landscapes to zoomed-in telephoto close-ups of distant subjects.
New image sensor and image processor
To maximise the capabilities of the high-resolution f/2.0 lens, a new high-speed back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and the TruePic VIII image processor used on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II are included on this model. Noise level has been reduced by 1 step for shooting in the standard ISO sensitivity range and also for shooting in darker areas. These improvements result in even higher image quality.
Image processing that delivers high resolution
The image processing algorithms have been retooled to deliver even higher resolution on the TG-5. They have been modified to provide high resolution for sections with a low difference in contrast particularly when using a low ISO sensitivity setting.
In addition to being dustproof, waterproof up to 15m deep, shockproof up to a 2.1M drop, crushproof up to 100 kgf, and freezeproof down to -10℃, the TG-5 has anti-fog dual pane protective glass. Such Tough performance provides peace of mind when shooting in punishing environments such as the mountains, ocean, and snow.
The Field Sensor System lets you relive your experiences
Data, such as latitude/longitude, temperature, and altitude/depth, recorded by the Field Sensor System during your shoot can be imported to your smartphone using the Olympus Image Track app to realistically recreate the experience of shooting.
4K Movie Compatibility
The TG-5 features significant improvements in video recording. It is compatible with 4K Movie which provides the ability to capture a greater level of detail in your videos. High-speed Movie is also supported, providing 120-fps recording capability at Full HD resolution.
The new image sensor and TruePic VIII image processor deliver fast reading capabilities for 4K Movie recording. This makes it possible to record beautiful video in high-resolution 4K quality.
High-Speed Movie captures fast action that can be played back in slow motion. On the TG-5, High-speed Movie provides 120-fps recording capability at Full HD resolution. High-speed recording is possible up to 240 fps for High Definition resolution and up to 480 fps for VGA.
Time Lapse Movie
The Interval Shooting function is included for fixed-point observation shooting over time. This can be used to record the movement of clouds and stars. Simply set the number of shots (max. 299) and interval (1 sec. to 24 hr.) and the camera will shoot successive images. After shooting, a Time Lapse Movie[*] is automatically generated. With this function, you can enjoy successive shots as a unique video.
The Variable Macro System expands macro photography
The Variable Macro System consists of four shooting modes for expanded macro photography and two separately available accessories for close-up shooting. This system makes it possible to capture photos of the tiniest details that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
This mode provides amazing macro shooting capabilities with the ability to photograph subjects up to 1 cm away from the end of the lens. Using the optical zoom, it is possible to zoom in on subjects for a view that is almost like looking through a microscope. (35mm equivalent image magnification: 7x)
This mode composites varying depths of field by capturing multiple images at different focal positions. It lets you take macro photos that are completely in focus from the front to the back. The TG-5 is capable of recording full pixel images, delivering macro photos with higher image quality and a deep level of focus.
Simply press the shutter once to capture up to 30 shots while gradually shifting the focal location in Focus Bracketing. Because the impression of macro photos changes drastically according to the focal location, Focus Bracketing can be used to select the best shots depending on the focal location while checking recorded images. The amount of focal shift can be selected from three different options. (35mm equivalent image magnification: 7x)
Versatile shooting modes for creative expression
The TG-5 is packed with a variety of shooting modes such as Underwater Mode optimised for underwater photography, and Pro Capture for capturing split-second movement. With these features, more creative expression can be achieved easily.
Superb controls and system expandability
Photography in the most punishing environments require excellent controls and system expandability. The TG-5 camera design has been improved with this in mind, for easier use and more versatile shooting.
