Olympus Tough TG-5 in Compact Cameras

Tough TG-5

Olympus has announced a new Tough! camera featuring a new 12 megapixel backlit sensor and bright 25-100mm equivalent lens. 

Despite the fact that there are fewer megapixels than in the predecessor's sensor, the Tough! TG-5 has the same image processor as the OM-D E-M1 Mark II giving enhanced dynamic range and improved response time.

As with all Tough! cameras, it's really rugged - 2.1m shockproof, 100kg crushproof, freezeproof down to -10 degrees centigrade and waterproof to 15m without a housing.

There is also a 4-mode variable macro system with microscope, microscope control, focus bracketing and focus stacking mode. It also supports RAW files.  

The Tough! TG-5 also features 4K video recording and 120fps Full HD high-speed movies allowing for better slow motion videos. The camera also features improved easy to access controls and dual pane anti-fog glass. Wi-Fi is supported for fast transfer of images.

TG-5 lifestyle

There are several accessories available for the camera:

  • LG-1 Macro Light Guide for illuminating macro subjects evenly and counteracting camera shadow for truly spectacular shots
  • FD-1 Flash Diffuser for redistributing light from the built-in flash to evenly illuminate close-up subjects in poor light
  • FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter Lens for quirky, wide-angle shots in severe conditions, including underwater
  • TCON-T01 Tele Converter Lens for extreme close-ups underwater, or elsewhere
  • PT-058 Underwater Casing for capturing movies and stills worry-free at depths up to 45 metres
  • CSCH-121 Neoprene Case for added protection against scratches and high drops – it’s mesh design allows quick draining and drying after underwater use
  • CSCH-123 Sport Holder for carrying your camera hands-free and within reach on the front of a harness or backpack. Available in light blue and Orange
  • CSCH-126 Silicon Jacket for protection from scratches
  • CSCH-107 Hard Case with a carabiner hook for securing your camera to a variety of outdoors equipment
  • CHS-09 Floating Handstrap in red for a sporty and highly visible way to hold onto or relocate your Tough!

An upgrade on the Tough TG-4 released in 2015, the Tough! TG-5 is set to be available in June for £399.99.
