Olympus Tough TG-5

Posted on Updated on

Olympus has unveiled the Tough TG-5, featuring an f/2.0 lens, a new high-performance backlit 12-megapixel CMOS image sensor, TruePic VIII Image Processor, plus a Field Sensor System that records movement and environmental data.

The company says the 25-100 mm (equivalent) lens works in concert with the new sensor and the dual quad core processor to deliver the highest image quality of any Tough model to date.

The built-in Field Sensor System, consisting of a GPS sensor, manometer, compass, and temperature sensor, records movement and environmental data independently or in conjunction with still images or videos. Data logs can be simultaneously displayed with images and videos using the Olympus Image Track app.

As its name implies, the Tough TG-5 is waterproof to 50 feet (15 m), crushproof to 220 pounds of force (100 kg of force), shockproof from 7 feet (2.1 m), freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C) and dustproof. The camera now includes Anti-Fog Lens Cover Glass.

New video functions include 4K Movie to capture Ultra HD video at four times the resolution of Full HD. Full HD 120 fps High-Speed Movie lets users capture slow-motion, and 4K Time Lapse automatically creates short videos of long periods of time.

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-5 will be available in red and black beginning in June with an estimated street price of $579.99.
