Taking brilliant imaging to new heights - and depths: Shoot 15m underwater with image quality matching that in dry land
As with the TG-1 before, the new flagship of the Olympus STYLUS TOUGH range TG-2 supplies light to the sensor through a remarkable, extra-bright maximum aperture 1:2.0 high-speed lens. Together they capture excellent images in conditions that leave lesser rugged compact cameras in the dark. For fans of background blur, the manual aperture priority option is a category rarity while closeup and macro lovers benefit from 200mm* telephoto power as close as 1cm from the subject. Of course, the TG-2 also spoils outdoor enthusiasts like bikers and climbers.
With GPS tracking, 240fps high-speed movie recording for super slow-motion playback and – best of all – a peace-of-mind guarantee: it’s waterproof to a depth of 15 metres, shockproof to a height of 2.1m, freeze proof to -10°C and crushproof to a force of 100kg and is FlashAir™ compatible for transferring password-protected images to selected smartphones and social networks
