Olympus Tough TG-5 Black Action Camera Summary

With the TG-5, Olympus’ flagship Tough camera has just got a whole lot better – leading the way in ultimate, go-anywhere, tough cameras that are ready to capture the highlights of your latest adventure.

The Olympus TG-5 has been improved across the board to offer better overall image quality in a wider range of conditions and to enhance the adventure capturing capabilities of the camera.

Fitted with a new 12MP sensor, the TG-5 boasts improved low-light shooting capabilities with a maximum ISO up to 12,800, as well as a wider dynamic range in normal conditions and reduced noise.

Debuting 4K video at 30p and Full HD video at up to 120fps high-speed video, the TG-5 allows adventurers to capture their images and video in even greater detail than before.

Highlights of the Olympus Tough TG-5 include:

  • New 12MP sensor for improved low light ISO sensitivity
  • Faster image processing with TruePic VIII (borrowed from the E-M1 Mark II)
  • 4K at 30p Video & FHD 120fps High-Speed video
  • High resolution f/2.0 lens now with Anti-Fog hermetically sealed dual-pane glass protecting the shooting lens from condensation from sudden changes in environmental temperature
  • Pro Capture Mode (the same as in the OM-D E-M1 Mark II)
  • New top-mounted control dial for easier use with gloves
  • OM-D menu interface for familiarity
  • Interchangeable accessories with the Lock Button
  • Field Sensor System of GPS, Temperature sensor, Manometer, and Compass
  • Four action track sensor record data to supplement images and video
  • Waterproof down to 15m
  • Crushproof up to 100kg
  • Shockproof up to 2.1m
  • Freezeproof down to -10 degrees Celsius
  • Dustproof
  • Variable Macro system with Microscope Mode, Microscope Control Mode, Focus Stacking Mode, and Focus Bracketing Mode
  • Various shooting modes
Our Verdict

For existing Olympus users, the Tough TG-5 offers a familiar feel, with an OM-D menu interface and rugged E-M1 Mark II-esque hand grip. Also borrowed from the E-M1 Mark II is the Pro Capture Mode, allowing you to shoot at hugely fast speeds and capture action precisely.

If you’ve had a TG-4 previously, the new Tough TG-5 will bring a bucket load of welcome upgrades – integrating data into your action photography with a Field Sensor System of four sensors – GPS, Temperature, Manometer, and Compass – which are viewable on the large LCD screen and even via the OI.Track app, letting you view your images and your data simultaneously.

The Olympus Tough TG-5 represents a step-up in tough, waterproof action cameras with improved low light capabilities and tough performance, including the new Anit-Fog dual-pane glass, giving it an edge over competitors and making it a forerunner in its class.

Olympus TG-5 Black Action Camera Features in Detail

Overall Improved Image Quality, Better Tracking, More Sharing Capabilities

 

The Olympus Tough TG-5 boasts an overall improved image quality in a wider range of conditions, thanks to its new 12megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, faster image processor taken out of the flagship OM-D E-M1 Mark II, and a version of Pro Capture mode that’s previously only been featured in the professional OM-D lineup.

A new temperature sensor adds to the existing GPS, Manometer and Compass to give a battery of four Field Sensors to integrate data into your images and video, which can be easily shared through the WiFi and via the OI.Track app.

 

 

Features Designed for Outdoor Pursuits

 

Aside from all the improvements, the TG-5 features an ultra-bright f/2.0 lens with a 25-100mm 4x optical zoom for wide angle to telephoto shots and excellent low light capability.

The Variable Macro system with Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking modes lets you capture spectacular nature shots and they can all be capture as RAW files.

The TG-5 is shockproof up to a height of 2.1 metres, crushproof to a weight of 100kg, freezeproof down to -10 degrees Celsius, dustproof, and waterproof to a depth of 15 metres without any need for any kind of special casing or housing. However, with the PT-058 underwater casing optional accessory, it will operate down to 45 metres underwater.

Underwater shots will look amazing with the ultra bright f/2.0 lens and Underwater HDR mode to enhance areas of light and shadow, AF area to shift the focus within the frame, and the glove-friendly customisable mode dial together with a new control wheel and the internal Manometer.

 

 

Outstanding Video Recording

 

The Tough TG-5 now boasts ultra high definition 4K video at 30p, as well as Full High Definition modes to record high speed video at up to 120fps for awesome slow-motion playback.
