    WEATHERPROOF CONSTRUCTION

    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.

    ANTI-FOG

    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.

    LENS BARRIER

    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.

    1CM FOCUSING DISTANCE

    If you love macro photography, you’ll enjoy this camera. The built-in Microscope Mode features magnified shooting as close as 1cm from the front of your lens. You can get up close in great detail to the worlds beyond.

    FOUR MACRO MODES

    Macro photography is the art of capturing the unseen. The Tough TG-6 features four macro modes to produce artistic, richly detailed images. Two modes let you use the camera like a microscope by focusing as close as 1cm while achieving a maximum display magnification of 44.4x. You’ll capture with striking clarity what the naked eye can’t see — the outline of a snowflake or water droplets balanced on a tiny leaf. Focus Stacking and Bracketing modes shoot images of insects and other tiny objects with dramatic depth of field.

    MICROSCOPE

    Taking magnified photos of subjects as close as 1cm from the front of your lens opens a new world of macro shooting.

    MICROSCOPE CONTROL

    Add drama to your macro shots with a maximum display magnification of 44.4x.

    FOCUS
    STACKING

    Automatically captures and merges 3 to 10 macro shots at different focus points into one image with stunning depth of field.

    FOCUS BRACKETING

    Capture up to 30 images at various focus points by slightly shifting the focal position with each shot. Images can then be composited in post-production using Olympus Workspace software to create an image with greater depth of field.

    MACRO LIGHTING ACCESSORIES

    Good lighting makes all the difference in macro photography. Optional accessories like the LG-1 Light Guide allow you to capture evenly lit, extremely close images using the built-in AF Illuminator LED. The FD-1 diffuses the built-in flash giving you well-lit macro shots of faster moving subjects — even underwater.

    UNDERWATER SHOOTING MODES

    UNDERWATER MICROSCOPE MODE

    We’re making underwater macro photography effortless. Our Underwater Macro Mode is ideal for close-ups of small fish, coral or plant life. Capture extreme close-ups using the Underwater Microscope Mode. Get as close as 1cm from the end of your lens for macro shots nothing short of spectacular.

    UNDERWATER MACRO

    Take your love of macro photography below sea level. Underwater Macro Mode zooms in on small objects to capture the rich color and detail in coral, plants or small fish.

    UNDERWATER WIDE

    The deeper you go, the less light you’ll find. With Underwater Wide Mode, you’ll be able to capture objects — such as manta rays and angelfish plus reefs and wrecks — with clarity and sharpness even in dim light.

    UNDERWATER SNAPSHOT

    Lighting is brighter in shallow waters. Switch on the Underwater Snapshot Mode to shoot stills that take advantage of natural color and lighting.

    UNDERWATER HDR

    A helpful underwater mode that takes multiple images at varying exposures, then combines them to boost dynamic range to recreate details in bright and dark areas.

    UNDERWATER WHITE BALANCE

    Underwater White Balance Mode gives you three options to enhance color based on your depth. Shallow improves red tones in depths of approximately 3 meters or less. Mid-range adds vibrant color in depths between 3 and 15 meters. Use Deep for strong blue tones while shooting deeper than 15 meters.

    TAKE DEEPER DIVES

    The Tough TG-6 doesn’t need any housing down to 50 ft (15 m). But if you want to photograph sea life at deeper depths, you’ll need the PT-059 Underwater Case. It can handle water pressure down to 147 ft (45 m). Even with the case, you can use the camera control dial for exposure compensation. Return to the surface with incredible deep water images.

    TOUGH ACCESSORIES GO UNDERWATER

    Take underwater photography to new heights with two optional lenses. The FCON-T02 Fisheye Converter lets you capture sharp, circular shaped images. It also captures more traditional diagonal shaped fisheye images. The FCON-T01 allows you to capture wide-open scenery while maintaining the brightness of the lens - perfect for capturing wide-angle shots. The TCON-TO1 tele converter lens extends the Tough TG-6’s focal length to 1.7x to shoot crisp photos of whales, dolphins or large schools of fish from a distance. All 3 lenses require the CLA-T01 adapter for attachment to the TG-6. They are a small part of a comprehensive system of accessories that raise your level of underwater photography.

Perfect
Easy setup and menu options. Tired of caring a heavy Digital camera on long hikes. Need a tough, waterproof, light weight camera. This seems to fit the bill.

Great camera!
Great camera! Bought it for our upcoming trip to Antartica. Love the durability and the weight and size. Also purchased the telephoto lens. Wish the telephoto was a bit more powerful but it will do. The photos that this camera take are exceptional. The close ups are amazing!

Great camera for the price
I am a beginner and this camera makes it easy to find the right settings to take quality shots. The only thing I wish it had was a lense cover. It does not come with one.
