Using the processor from the flagship E-M1 MKII with RAW file capability, the TG-5 allows photographers to extract maximum detail which is vital as the camera can focus as close as 1cm. This micro capability has made the TG Series a firm favourite with nature photographers. At these close distances, light can become an issue which is why the two adapters were developed as optional accessories.
The LED Light Guide LG-1 uses the LED on the front of the camera to illuminate your subject but spreads the light more evenly around the lens area. In addition to lighting your subject while the image is taken, the LG-1 also assists in composing your image, as the constant light source illuminates the subject. When using the LG-1 the camera's closest focusing distance is 1 cm, allowing the camera to lay flat on the subject and still focus.
