Olympus has announced its latest Tough compact digital camera, the $649 TG-6, scheduled for release in early July 2019.
The 'Tough' construction includes underwater shooting up to 15m deep, with five underwater modes and three underwater white balance settings. Want to go deeper? There's an optional casing specially designed for the TG-6 which extends protection down to 45 metres. A new fisheye converter lens suitable for underwater use is another optional extra.
In addition to waterproofing, the TG-6 is dustproof, shockproof to 2.1 metres, crushproof to 100 kgf, and freezeproof to -10°C, for which it features a dual-pane protective glass construction for anti-fogging.
You're covered for photography near and far, with a high-speed f/2.01 zoom lens backed by a back-lit CMOS sensor and TruePic VIII image processing reducing noise levels and improving the resolution in low contrast areas, while an improved Variable Macro System delivers ultra-close-up shooting up to 1cm from the subject even in P and A modes. A Microscope mode allows a maximum shooting magnification of 7x for the capture of tiny details.
This model supports 4K movie recording, which can be used to extract full pixel 4K still images. 'High-speed' also records at 120 fps in Full HD, 240 fps at HD, and 480 fps at SD size.
