The Ultimate Partner to Capture and Withstand the Most Punishing Environments Whether it be in the mountains, on the beach, or in the snow, the Olympus Tough series can withstand the most punishing environments, to deliver the highest image quality. The TG-6 is the pinnacle of the Tough series, featuring the popular Variable Macro System, enhanced underwater shooting modes, and further system expandability with a new fisheye converter for circular fisheye photography. This camera has evolved to deliver a wider range of expressive power than ever before in any kind of environment. Tough performance for shooting anytime, anywhere
The TG-6 delivers Tough performance that is waterproof to 15m, dustproof, shockproof to 2.1 m, crushproof to 100kg, freeze proof to -10℃, and anti-fogging. These features make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.
Advanced Underwater Shooting The dedicated underwater mode for capturing high quality images underwater is now more advanced than ever. Accessories that support underwater photography are also enhanced, with the addition of the fisheye converter lens for circular fisheye photography.
5 Underwater Modes This model is equipped with five modes that are optimal for underwater shooting. Simply set the mode dial to Underwater
Underwater Macro This mode is optimised for close-up shooting of small subjects. Zoom in close on subjects via telephoto and use the flash for sharp and clear images. The closest focus distance from the end of the lens is 10 cm.
Underwater Microscope This mode lets you shoot extreme close-ups of subjects from 1 cm away from the end of the lens. With this feature, it is possible to magnify subjects as if using a microscope underwater. Use together with the FD-1 Flash Diffuser for best results.
Underwater Wide This mode is optimised for shooting in dark underwater conditions. Various settings such as the flash, auto-focus, white balance, and others are optimised for photos with a real sense of presence.
Underwater Snapshot The camera uses natural light when shooting in pools and other shallow water for natural colours of underwater subjects and snapshots.
Underwater HDR Multiple images are recorded at different exposures, and composited to dramatically reproduce both bright and dark underwater sections.
Underwater WB (White Balance) There are now three more underwater white balance options to select from in order to achieve the optimal colour reproduction depending on the depth of water. Each of the five underwater modes has the optimal underwater WB preset (can be changed if desired).
Waterproof to 15m
Sealing and a double-lock mechanism delivers waterproof performance up to depths of 15 m1. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while snorkelling. Waterproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8).'
High image quality for improved detail
The bright f/2.0 high-resolution lens delivers high image quality thanks to a combination of the high-speed back-lit CMOS sensor and the latest image processor.
Amazing Variable Macro System
The Amazing Variable Macro System consists of four macro shooting modes and two separately available accessories for macro shooting. This system makes it possible to capture amazing photos of the tiniest details.
Advanced underwater shooting
The dedicated underwater mode for capturing high quality images underwater is now more advanced than ever. Accessories that support underwater photography are also enhanced with the addition of a fisheye converter lens for circular fisheye photography.
Superb system expandability
The TG-6 features superb system expandability with a wealth of accessories including those for macro shooting and converter lenses. This design also delivers the control required in punishing environments.
Tough Performance for Shooting Anytime, Anywhere
The TG-6 delivers Tough performance that is waterproof to 15 m, dust proof, shockproof to 2.1 m, crushproof to 100 kgf, freeze proof to -10℃, and anti-fogging. These features make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.
The design features an airtight construction that shuts out sand and dust1. If your camera gets dirty, simply rinse with fresh water to wash off any excess dirt. Dust proof performance is JIS/IEC protection class6 (IP6X).
Shockproof to 2.1m
Even with a large, bright f/2.0 lens, this model can still clear drop tests of up to 2.1m. Olympus know-how has been utilised in every facet, including the lens shape, lens positioning, and the lens drive method, resulting in a high level of shock-absorbing performance1. Shockproof construction resistant to 2.1 m (MIL-STD-810F compliant)
Crushproof to 100 kgf
To protect all inner parts including the lens unit and circuit boards, an interior protective structure which can withstand a weight of 100kgf1 has been employed. With this crushproof construction, you won't have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera when carrying it in your back pocket.
Freeze proof to -10℃
Operation at low temperatures is guaranteed down to -10℃1. With this feature, you can feel confident capturing your ski and snowboarding trips, and other winter adventures.
The dual-pane protective glass helps prevent lens fogging in locations with sudden changes in temperature1.
LB-T01 Lens Barrier
The new LB-T01 Lens Barrier accessory (available separately) helps protect the lens surface from scratches and dirt. It can be opened and closed easily, by simply turning the edge, even when wearing gloves.
Please note: other accessories or conversion lens to be attacked to the mount, silicone jacket and underwater housing. Macro LED illumination can't be used while the lens barrier is attached. (It causes shadows on the photo.)
