The Olympus Tough TG-6 is a sleek point-and-shoot camera characterised by its exceedingly durable design and it is capable of handling a wide variety of adventures. It features 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 120fps. To complement the shooting capabilities this camera has 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.
Beyond just imaging, the TG-6 also sports a robust set of features for withstanding the elements, tracking your adventures and sharing your images. The camera is rated for underwater use, tested to withstand falls and crushing and is hermetically sealed again dust and moisture when working in trying conditions. Also, a Field Sensor System incorporates GPS, a manometer, compass and a thermometer for recording the details of your environment and embedding this data onto your photos and videos. By using the built-in Wi-Fi and Image Track app, recorded data and the imagery can also be shared to a mobile device for posting online.
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 15m
- Shockproof to falls from 2.1m high
- Freezeproof to temperatures as low as -10°
- Crushproof to withstand up to 100kgf of pressure
- Dustproof rated to IPX6 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 level, accessory lock button and convenient dial control.
12MP BSI CMOS Sensor and TruePic VIII Processor
Utilising a 12MP BCI 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. These are 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. Also, the processor avails a 20fps 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 120fps.
4x Optical Zoom Lens
Spanning a wide-angle to telephoto focal length, 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. Also, image stabilisation helps to minimise 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 when 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 videos 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. Also, both photos and videos can be searched for used recorded tracking date. The built-in Wi-Fi also allows you to remotely control the camera and wirelessly share images to a linked smartphone or tablet.
