- Olympus TG-Tracker Tough Action Camera
If you are looking for a camera that can withstand the great outdoors, then the Olympus TG-Tracker Tough Underwater Camera is what you are looking for. Tough is an understatement for this Olympus compact camera because it is waterproof for up to 100ft and shockproof for up to 7ft. It can also withstand abuse because it is crushproof for up to 100 kg of force. Aside from its protective capabilities, it is also a tough customer when it comes to taking great pictures. With an 8 MP, 1 2/3" CMOS Sensor that is combined with the Truepic VII for 4K Image Processor, you can capture impressive images no matter how tough the setting is. Meanwhile, the 204-degree Extreme Angle f/2.0 High Speed Lens gives way to superb wide angle shots and great images taken during low-light settings. This Olympus digital camera is also tough on camera shake due to its Electronic 5-Axis Image Stabilization. All of the media taken through this rugged camera can be viewed through the 90-degree, 115K-dot, tilt-out LCD monitor. On the other hand, the precise location of the camera is also calculated via the Enhance GPS and eCompass while necessary adjustments underwater are done based on the readings of the barometric pressure and temperature sensor. Video chapters are also automatically identified based on the readings of the accelerometer. If you are ready to share your stills or footages to the world, the TG Tracker Tough's built-in WiFi is your ally.
Product Features in Detail
Ultra wide angle lens
The Stylus Tough TG-Tracker’s ultra-wide-angle lens was developed using advanced optical technology. Its 204° angle of view is wider than that which can be captured by the human eye, allowing it to record action videos with a dramatic perspective, especially useful for ultra-wide views of outdoor sports scenes.
TruePic VII Image Processor and CMOS Sensor
The Stylus Tough TG-Tracker is equipped with the TruePicTM VII for 4K Image Processor, the latest iteration of the TruePicTM image processors used in the Olympus OM-D and PEN compact system cameras, now with 4K video capability.*2 It quickly processes data from the high-sensitivity, low-noise backlit CMOS sensor to produce high-quality images.
Rugged but reliable
At first glance, the TG-Tracker looks rugged and compact, easy to carry and easy to shoot. But there’s far more here than meets the eye. That’s because TG-Tracker is part of the Olympus Tough Family – worry-free cameras built to handle abuse so you can concentrate on getting great shots. TG-Tracker is waterproof to depths of 100 ft (30 m), crushproof up to 220 lbf (100 kgf)1, shockproof from 7 ft (2.1 m)1, freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C), and dustproof. Most other action cams need protective housings. That means more stuff to carry around, clumsy camera operation, and a difficult time capturing sound. With TG-Tracker, no housing equals better overall performance.
All is OK with 4K
Record your adventures with so much vivid detail you’ll feel like you’re watching real life. That’s the amazing resolution you get with Ultra HD 4K 30p video. Besides 4K, TG-Tracker gives you shooting options in Full HD 1080, HD 720, and standard definition, each with several frame rate options. Use the High Speed HD Video mode for slow-motion playback and the 4K Time Lapse Video mode to record captivating short video of long periods of time. The Loop Recording mode shoots continuously in 29 minute increments. Even still photos are covered with TG-Tracker’s Still Shot mode.
It's tough to get bad images here
There’s advanced technology behind the imagery you’ll capture with TG-Tracker. The BSI CMOS sensor works with Olympus' blazing fast TruePic™ VII for 4K Image Processor for video and stills rich with detail and vibrant color. For video you’ll brag about, the Electronic 5-Axis Image Stabilization compensates for all types of movement and the bright F2.0 aperture shoots clearly in low light and underwater. The 204° extreme-wide angle lens provides a dramatic, almost panoramic perspective. Or, select the narrow angle view for a more natural perspective or underwater shooting. TG-Tracker comes with a Dome Lens Protector for most usage scenarios plus a flat Underwater Lens Protector to capture sharp underwater shots.
A sensor that makes much sense
Sensor technology helps to track everything you see and do for an immersive experience that goes beyond video. There are five Action Track Sensors built into TG-Tracker. You’ll find a GPS so you’ll always know where you are. The e.Compass indicates direction. An accelerometer measures g-force. Keep an eye on your altitude or water depth with the barometric pressure sensor. The fifth sensor records ambient temperature. View real-time data on TG-Tracker’s tilt-out LCD monitor. Activate Data Log Mode to record data without video for extended periods of time with limited battery use.
Shoot and share
You’re watching the sunrise from 12,000 feet above sea level. The climb was awesome and the video is spectacular. Get it to your friends, family, and social sites fast using TG-Tracker’s built-in Wi-Fi. Quickly sync your smart device to your camera with the easy QR Code setup. Use the OI.Share app to remotely change settings and wirelessly share your shots. Use the OI.Track app to store still shots, video, and log data all on your smart device, then view videos and data simultaneously to relive the excitement. Your data is a record of your adventure. Have fun sharing your achievements.
Steady and clear for every shot
Never miss an opportunity for amazing video. TG-Tracker has features that make it easy. This ultra-compact adventure cam fits in your pocket so it’s easy to carry. The tilt-out LCD monitor makes it simple to change settings and quickly compose shots. Use the included Steady Grip handle to easily shoot from any angle. Activate the LED headlight to capture video after dark or double as a quick-use flashlight. A powerful interchangeable lithium-ion battery lets you shoot up to 95 minutes of 4K 30p video on a single charge. And when you need the perfect mounting solution, use the included three prong adapter to easily attach TG-Tracker to your choice of widely-available action cam mounting accessories.
Know where you are
The camera uses GPS (with GLONASS and QZSS functionality) to precisely calculate the user’s latitude and longitude from satellite signals. Additionally, Assist GPS can significantly increase the speed of the system’s positioning calculations by downloading satellite information ahead of time using the Olympus A-GPS Utility computer app or the Olympus Image Track smart-device app. On the other hand, the camera's e.Compass tracks the direction in which the camera lens is being pointed. It provides an easy way to confirm direction when shooting outdoors.
Of pressure and temperature
Altitude and water depth are calculated based on air- and water-pressure information. When the camera is submerged below a depth of half a meter, the Underwater Detector will automatically switch the camera to the optimal mode for shooting underwater so you can focus on getting the best shot without worrying about complicated controls. The monitor log display will also automatically switch from altitude to water-depth information. Meanwhile, this sensor records ambient temperature with a high degree of precision. The Stylus Tough TG-Tracker captures water temperature in both Video and Log Mode, and air temperature in Log Mode only.
A quick word on the accelerometer
This sensor measures acceleration (g-force) on three axes to record the photographer's movements. When a preset acceleration level is detected while a video is being recorded, the Chapter Function*1 automatically identifies and bookmarks the moment. This feature supports editing and playback of exciting scenes, like when jumping and landing in intense sports such as snowboarding and motocross. Users may choose from two levels of acceleration or may turn this feature off.
