Ultimate adventures often involve the most challenging lighting conditions. From arctic twilight to the undersea world, the ability to deal with low light in particular is the key to a great image. A new image sensor with superb high-speed and high-sensitivity performance combined with the latest TruePic VIII image processor taken from our flagship system camera gives better image quality than before with enhanced dynamic range and improved response time.
The TG-5’s superb waterproof performance down to depths of up to 15 meters not only enables you to shoot in heavy rain or white water rapids, but even while snorkelling.
To protect the bright 1:2.0 high-speed lens, the TG-5 is built with Olympus’s unique and outstanding shock-absorption technology, making it robust enough to withstand a drop test from a height of 2.1 metres.
Every part in this camera, including the electronic components, is designed to withstand the harsh conditions of winter sports, with operation guaranteed down to minus 10°C.
The interior protective structure of the camera is built to withstand a load of 100 kg, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera when carrying it in your back pocket.
The newly developed image sensor used in the TG-5 delivers high-speed performance and superb high-sensitivity. It gives better image quality than before with less noise and improved image detail and delivers natural-looking, high-resolution movies.
The TG-5 features the latest TruePicVIII image processor taken from the Olympus Pro flagship system camera OM-D E-M1 Mark II. It’s improved image processing algorithm is even more powerful to deliver higher image resolution in low-contrast areas especially when shooting at low ISO sensitivity.
Even better quality with high ISO sensitivity! The newly developed image sensor and high-speed image processor reduce noise in your images when using high ISO sensitivity. Maximum ISO sensitivity: ISO12800.
Wanna shoot a snowboarding event at dusk? That’s not a problem with a maximum setting of ISO12800!
