Recommended Accessories for your Purchase

Get the best in every shot in your underwater adventure with the Olympus TG-6 Tough Underwater Camera. Maintaining its toughest capabilities in outdoor activities, the TG-6 boasts a 12 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor with TruePic VIII Image Processor that promises image noise reduction while maintaining true image colors. Even with a portable size, this supercam exhibits High Speed 25-100mm (35mm Equivalent) with Olympus 4x Optical Zoom f/2 Lens, capable of bringing you 4K Video Recording and Full HD at 120p. Image enhancement however, can be enhanced easily via 16 ART Filters. When shooting on shaky terrain, the Sensor Shift Image Stabilization keeps the images sharp even if the camera moves. Image clarity and low-light performance plus the BSI design of the sensor offers cleaner quality at higher sensitivities of up to ISO 12800 and up to 20-fps Shooting. At close-up shooting, the TG-6 has four shooting modes within the Variable Macro System including Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Stacking, and Focus Bracketing. Wireless connection is also made possible with the cameras Built-In Wi-Fi, GPS, Field Sensor System. Furthermore, in any activity indoor or outdoor, this cam is made to be waterproof for up to 50 ft / 15 m, shockproof for up to 7 ft / 2.1 m and crushproof for up to 220 lbf / 100 kgf.

Product Features in Detail

Tough Performance for Shooting Anytime, Anywhere
The TG-6 delivers Tough performance that is waterproof to 15 m, dustproof, shockproof to 2.1 m, crushproof to 100 kgf, freezeproof to -10℃, and anti-fogging. These features make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.


Waterproof to 15 m
Sealing and a double-lock mechanism delivers waterproof performance up to depths of 15 m. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while snorkelling.
The design features an airtight construction that shuts out sand and dust. If your camera gets dirty, simply rinse with fresh water to wash off any excess dirt.
Shockproof to 2.1 m
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 performance.
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 100kgf 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.
Freezeproof to -10℃
Operation at low temperatures is guaranteed down to -10℃. 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 temperature.


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.


High Image Quality for Improved Detail
The bright F2.0 high-resolution lens delivers high image quality thanks to a combination of the high-speed back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and the latest image processor.


High-resolution F2.0 lens
The TG-6 features a high-resolution, F2.0 lens with an optical 4x zoom. Lenses developed with advanced optical technology are used, including a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens for high image quality. The bright F2.0 lens makes it possible to use a fast shutter speed to reduce subject blur, even when capturing moving subjects in dark locations.


4x optical zoom + 2x digital teleconverter
The TG-6 is equipped with a 2x digital teleconverter, enabling zooming up to 8x (35mm equivalent: 25 - 200mm). It provides a broad range of photography, from wide-angle bird's-eye view of scenic landscapes, to zoomed-in telephoto close-ups of distant subjects.


Image sensor and image processor
This camera is equipped with a high-speed, high-sensitivity back-lit CMOS image sensor, and the TruePic VIII, the same image processor as on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II professional model. This design allows for low noise and high-resolution image quality.


AR coating reduces ghosts and flares
Anti-reflective (AR) coating is now used on both sides of the sealing glass over the image sensor. This construction minimises ghosts and flaring.


RAW photography
The TG-6 allows shooting in RAW format. RAW images can be edited and processed on a computer using the new image editing software, Olympus Workspace. RAW processing on the camera is also supported.


Amazing Variable Macro System
The Variable Macro System consists of four 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 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 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).


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 control required in punishing environments.
