Given the performance of Olympus models of late, and the marketing surrounding this camera heralding it as a major leap in the tough cam market….well…kind of disappointing.  Muddy details, flat colors, compression artifacting at ISO 160…  not good.

Just as all you said, who cares anyway??? If you stick to ISO 100, you’ll be fine…

Agree with Pat, image quality is awful, even at low iso, soft, lots of artifacts, terrible tonality and lack of detail.

Just bought one, here in Hong Kong and - though the images thus far are good - Olympus have reverted to this extremely annoying trend towards Instruction Manuals only on CD. With a camera this expensive, we would Expect a proper, printed, English Instruction BOOK in the box…
Second, and despite any coatings applied to the lens exterior, why isn’t it offered with the CLA-TO1 Converter adaptor - also in the box - so we can at least fir a Lens Cap (or 40.5 ND filter, or both), to give some additional protection from thumbprints…?
Finally, on-board charging is a good thing, though in this case, having to leave the o-ring sealed side hatch open to dust, humidity and other airborne contaminants whilst you charge the battery, kind of defeats the weatherproof ethic.
But what do I know…!

Hi Autolycus,

How much did you buy it in HongKong?

Just over HKD $3100, which is around USD $400.
Not as cheap as amazon - but their postal charges to this part of the world are extortionate, so it’s less-expensive overall to buy locally.
Or you can wait until the next one emerges from Japan, whereupon all prices of “old” stock drops.

Thanks Autolycus!

My TG-1 has a very annoying ticking sound in all the video’s that I shot so far (even if I follow the advice from the manual to set the video sound to ‘low’). I contacted Olympus, sent them sample vids and they refused the warranty claim because they consider this normal for this camera. Check out this samples to find out what Olympus thinks is “perfectly normal behaviour” for this camera:



These vids were made with one shot AF, IS off, and I can also confirm that this has nothing to do with the sound of the optical zoom (which is hardly noticeable in this camera).

Olympus says this sound is a consequence of waterproofing the camera, but they wouldn’t tell me why other waterproof camera’s apparently don’t have this problem.

It’s a real shame Olympus will not warrant this, because the rest of the camera is really good: great 2.0 lens, fast performance, very good image quality (esp. high iso and macro) for its class and nice, functional body design.

You might get lucky with your sample (or maybe not so unlucky as I was,) but be warned that Olympus will not grant any warranty claims if you end up with video sound like this.

Hi Meppel07,

The ticking sound coming off the camera doesn’t seem normal.  Does it also happen when you play the movie in the camera itself?

I just got mine, haven’t tested it yet underwater, but I did record a test movie and didn’t hear those ticking sound when played in the camera. 

Maybe you ought to try again with Olympus and escalate it to somebody higher.

About the ticking sound, same started to happen to me. You can hear the sound during recording. This seems to come from the lens barrel or stabilizer.
To avoid the sound (while there is no known solution), just keep on pressing the Wide button (if you are recording in wide zoom). The same if you are recording in Tele zoom. I know, it’s annoying, but i think that it is, so far, the best way to avoid the sound.

Whats wrong with some of the pictures ? They cant possibly be the original quality, they look terrible. Is it some weird philter ?

Just bought (and returned) one of these cameras. It made that ridiculous and unacceptable ticking sound in the video playback. Olympus thinks this is ok for a camera costing well over $300?
