Stylus TG-4 Tough
Further evolved to perfectly capture the most amazing moments.
Introducing the Stylus TG-4 Tough, the pinnacle of the Tough series. It is equipped with a variety of features that perfectly capture the most amazing moments in any environment, including a bright f/2.0 lens, Microscope Mode, a variety of underwater modes, and GPS. New accessories that expand your photographic field have also been introduced, including a converter lens and Sport Holder. This is a must-have camera for those who enjoy outdoor sports such as diving, mountain climbing, and hiking.
Capture the action in high image quality
In the mountains, by the ocean, in rocky terrain or the snow - the Stylus Tough series can endure and perform in any environment. Among other models, the TG-4 comes out on top with its bright f/2.0 lens.
Features perfect for outdoor photography
The TG-4 is equipped with versatile shooting modes that let you capture high quality images even in challenging situations.
System expandability for a wider realm of shooting
Mountains, rivers, valleys, oceans, mountain climbing, trekking, diving, skiing, snowboarding, and leisure activities. The TG-4 is designed to work as part of a system, making it useful in any rugged environment or in active sports.
GPS + Electronic Compass and Built-in Wi-Fi
The GPS function on the TG-4 is compatible with GLONASS and QZSS. Position accuracy has been further improved. With support for GPS assist data, positioning speed is significantly improved when the GPS assist data information is updated ahead of time using a computer or smartphone.
Shooting modes that enhance both individuality and operability
Two C (custom) modes are available on the mode dial of TG-4 so you can save your favourite settings and access them quickly. For those who like to edit their photos to their liking after shooting, the TG-4 can provide raw data of recorded images.
The combination of the TruePic VII image processor, which provides high image quality and high speed operation, with the low-noise, back-lit CMOS sensor lets you reliably take shots of the nightscapes and backlit scenes without any difficulties.
Bright f/2.0 lens
With a bright f/2.0 lens, a high shutter speed can be used to minimize blue when shooting moving subjects even in dimly lit locations.
f/2.0 folded optics zoom lens
The TG-4 boasts the ultimate brightness for a folded optics zoom lens at f/2.0. Lenses created with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including the DSA lens. These features make for a camera with both Tough performance and excellent image quality.
- DSA lens: Dual Super Aspherical lens
- HR/HD lens: High Refractive Index and Dispersion lens
- Aspherical lenses
Aperture priority (A) mode makes use of the F2.0 lens
Aperture Priority (A) mode is now included. With this feature, the bright f/2.0 lens can be used to capture clearer images.
Reliable "Tough" performance
Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, crushproof, and freezeproof -- the TG-4 is a camera that provides excellent image quality in any type of environment imaginable.
NB: Waterproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) equivalent. The number of shots that can be recorded is reduced at lower temperature. Kilogram-force (kgf) is the unit for measuring force exerted on an object. Dustproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class (IP6X) equivalent. All tests were performed under Olympus in-house test conditions.
Olympus-original technologies such as protective sealing and a double lock mechanism enable waterproof performance down to depths of 15m. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while you snorkel.
The TG-4 dustproof construction features airtight mechanisms that prevent sand and dust from entering the camera.
The lens barrel, supports, shutter, and aperture were thoroughly tested and found to be able to withstand loads up to 100 kgf. With its crushproof capabilities, you won't have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera.
Conventional digital cameras are not guaranteed to operate at temperatures that fall below 0o. The TG-4, however, is guaranteed operation down to -10o, so you can feel confident using it as you enjoy winter sports.
The TG-4 features unique movie functions, such as HD movie, high-speed movie, and time lapse movie.
The movie size is 640 x 480 at 120fps and 320 x 240 at 240fps.
The maximum recording time for a high-speed movie is 20 seconds.
Time Lapse Movie
The Interval Shooting function is included for fixed-point observation shooting. This can be used to shoot scenes such as the movement of people or the movement of stars. Simply set the number of shots as well as the interval between each shot and the camera will automatically shoot successive images. After shooting is complete, the camera can generate a Time Lapse movie for a maximum of 10 seconds (when shooting 99 shots)*. With this function, you can enjoy successive shots as a movie.
Limited to Motion JPEG (10 fps) recording format.
