Olympus gets even tougher

The new Tough TG-6 features Olympus’ acclaimed toughened performance, plus a whole range of new features

Like its fellow Tough cameras, the TG-6 is a rugged compact that’s dust proof, waterproof to 15m, shockproof to 2.1m, crush proof to 100kg and freeze proof to -10°.

The Olympus Tough TG-6 features the same TruePic VIII image processor from the OM-D E-M1X, a 12-megapixel sensor, as well as an f/2 lens. Other new features include a Variable Macro system, which allows you to focus as close as 1cm, as well as four different macro modes: Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking.

There are also five different modes for underwater shooting; these include Underwater Wide, Underwater Snapshot, Underwater Macro, Underwater Microscope and Underwater HDR, as well as three different options for adjusting Underwater White Balance.

It also boasts Olympus’ Pro Capture feature, which allows the camera to begin shooting and buffering images at 10fps when pressing the shutter button halfway down, this enables action shots to be captured more easily.

Other features include built-in Wi-Fi for instant image transfers, art filters, a Live Composite mode and 4K video recording.

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is available from July, in red and black, with an RRP of £449.99. If purchased before 19 August 2019, you can claim a free Adventure Kit worth £49.99. To register for your Adventure Pack, click here.

A new range of accessories have also been announced, including the PT-059 Underwater Case, which allows the camera to shoot down to 45 metres, the CSCH-127 Silicone Jacket to protect the camera, the LB-T01 Lens Barrier to protect the lens and the FCON-T02 Fisheye Converter.
