    Key Features

    Further advanced image quality and Tough performance
    The TG-5 is equipped with the latest image sensor and image processor, and a bright f/2.0 high-resolution lens for high image quality. Its Tough performance and anti-fog dual-pane protective glass make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.

    High-resolution f/2.0 lens
    The TG-5 features both Tough performance and high image quality, along with a high-resolution, 4x optical zoom lens. The bright f/2.0 lens makes it possible to use a fast shutter speed to reduce subject blur even when capturing moving subjects in dark locations.

    Bright 4x zoom lens
    The TG-5 is equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens. The lens provides a broad range of photography, from a wide-angle bird's-eye view of scenic landscapes to zoomed-in telephoto close-ups of distant subjects.

    15 m waterproof
    The camera is waterproof up to 15m* below the water. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while snorkeling.
    *Waterproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) equivalent.

    This design features an airtight construction that shuts out sand and dust*. Because you can rinse off the camera body with tap water, even if it gets dirty you can simply wash it off.
    *Dust proof performance is JIS/IEC protection class 6 (IPX6) equivalent.

    2.1 m shockproof
    Even with a large, bright f/2.0 lens, this model can still clear drop tests of up to 2.1m. Olympus know-how has been utilised in every facet, including the lens shape, lens positioning, and the lens drive method, resulting in a high level of shock-absorbing performance*.
    *The TG-5 is built with a shockproof construction resistant to 2.1 m (MIL-STD810F standard compliant).

    100 kgf crushproof
    To protect all inner parts including the lens unit and circuit boards, an interior protective structure which can withstand a weight of 100kgf has been employed. With such crushproof construction[1], you won't have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera when carrying it in your back pocket.

    -10°C freezeproof
    Operation at low temperatures is guaranteed down to -10°C. With this feature, you can feel confident taking it along on ski and snowboard trips and other winter sport outings.

    The TG-5 introduces a new Tough feature, anti-fog[1]. The dual-pane protective glass provides an airtight seal that protects the lens and minimises condensation on the lens that tends to occur during sudden changes in temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome camera at a great price this has to be the best compact camera I have ever owned. we use ours for our business so it has to be tough and able to withstand a lot of knocks. the picture quality is second to none and the many shooting options make it very easy to use. I recently took the camera to Bali to go snorkelling with friends and of all cameras that people used mine produced the best photos with clearest colour and picture quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underwater Camera Took the tg-5 snorkeling in salt water for 10 days, great pics & no complaints. Lacks manual mode and size is a little bigger than I would like. Also led can be hard to read in the tropics but most cameras will experience the same. Overall very well built and no known problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great camera I bought this a month ago and took it on a trip to fiji where i sued it a lot both above and under water. it is brilliant for underwater photography. It also has the high level quality of picture expected from Olympus for general pics. The only downside with this and my previous Olympus cameras is the panorama setting. It just doesn't function very well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Camera, however not tough enough... Amazing camera. Clear photos, good videos, etc, etc. However, when it comes to being tough, the black plastic on the camera is definitely not tough enough. My first purchase had broken black plastic on the LHS, sent back for repair, then the black zooming circle atop the camera broke, this caused a replacement. Then a drop from knee height broke the black plastic on the RHS of the replacement camera. The previous versions of the camera didn't have any black plastic, as their bodies were mainly metal. My previous versions are still in working, unbroken condition (although quite scratched up from Tough Mudder and Spartan adventures). In all honesty, the latest version of the Olympus Tough is a fantastic quick shoot, compact, multi weather use camera, it's just not drop/knock proof like it's predecessors. N.B. you can purchase a silicone case for the camera. If you get the Olympus Tough TG-5, I'd highly recommend you purchase the case.
