The Ultimate Partner to Your Most Challenging Adventures

Ultimate adventures often involve the most challenging lighting conditions. From arctic twilight to the undersea world, the ability to deal with low light, in particular, is the key to a great image. A new image sensor with superb high-speed and high-sensitivity performance combined with the latest TruePic VIII image processor taken from Olympus' flagship system camera gives better image quality than before with enhanced dynamic range and improved response time.


Features

  • 12 megapixelPIXELThe shortening of 'picture element', a basic unit of programmable colour forming the dots that make up an image. Pixel size depends on a camera’s resolution, which is measured in megapixels (MP), meaning millions of pixels. The more pixels on a sensor, the smaller they have to be to fit. An image's number (or density) of pixels correlate to the amount of information and image holds. Cameras with more pixels on the sensor have a higher pixel density and thus more resolving power, able to capture smaller details with much more clarity and accuracy. Higher resolution images can be cropped more agressively and also produce better quality large prints. BSI CMOS Sensor
  • TruePic VIII Image Processor
  • Olympus 4x Optical Zoom f/2 Lens
  • 25-100mm (35mm Equivalent)
  • 3.0" 460k-Dot LCD Monitor
  • Water, Crush, Shock, Freeze & Dustproof
  • 4K Video Recording and Full HD at 120p
  • Built-In Wi-Fi, GPS, Field Sensor System
  • ISO ISO Exposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. The ISO speed determines how sensitive a camera's sensor is to incoming light. A higher ISO speed absorbs more light, resulting in a brighter exposure, however, a higher ISO also results in more digital noise in low-light conditions. Cameras with larger sensors (like full-frame cameras) typically have higher ISO speed capability and produce less digital noise at high ISO settings. Digital cameras include a control for adjusting ISO speed, some of which can be set to adjust automatically in combination with certain other exposure settings. ISO is indicated in numbers usually starting at 100 and going upward (200, 400, 800, 1600 etc.) doubling in sensitivity each time. Most cameras also indicate 3rd stop intervals (100, 125, 180, 200 etc.)12800 and Up to 20 fps Shooting
  • Pro Capture Mode & Variable MacroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. System


Field Sensor System

In combination with the free OI. Track app the new TG-5 lets you link GPS, compass, manometer and temperature data to your photos and videos, and transfer it via Wi-Fi to your smartphone or tablet.


Reliable Tough Performance

The dual-pane protective glass is just one new addition to the other proven tough capabilities, you can keep shooting whatever nature throws at you. Extreme shifts in temperature can cause condensation on lenses. The TG-5 prevents this with dual-pane protective glass, meaning you can keep shooting regardless.


Capture even more of the action

Making great moves look amazing means capturing every detail at just the right moment. The TG-5’s cutting-edge image technology makes that easier than ever. It’s high-speed TruePic VIII processor allows you to record in incredible 4K resolution and create full-HD sized 120 fps slow-motion movies. See the dynamism in every single movement or record beautiful scenery in stunning high definition.


Get right up close

Ever wanted to shoot tiny subjects you can’t see with the naked eye in superb detail?

The maximum 7x image magnification of the TG-5’s advanced, four-mode Variable Macro System (with Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking Mode) makes this possible. In Microscope mode, the camera can capture subjects as close as 1cm. In Microscope Control mode the display magnification factor can be changed to a maximum of 44.4x with the zoom lever.

On top two optional accessories, LD-1 Light Guide and FD-1 Flash Diffuser, are available to bring out the full potential of the Variable Macro System. Achieve spectacular close-up shots, as if you’re viewing through a microscope.


Relive the moment in full

Capture wonderful experiences in 4K and slow motion video, along with tracking info and share them with ease.

Import field sensor data like compass, manometer and temperature and images taken on the camera to a smartphone via the TG-5’s built-in Wi-Fi and OI.Share capability, then link them to create videos with a tracking data overlay in the free Olympus Image Track (OI.Track) app.

Share your experience with friends just as you remember it.
