From atop an Alpine mountain to the depths of a tropical lagoon, the Olympus TG-1 iHS captures the perfect shot in unforgiving environments. Waterproof to 40 feet, Shockproof to 6.6 feet, Freezeproof to 14°F and even Crushproof to a weight of 220 pounds, the flagship Olympus Tough model is the toughest Tough model to date and an exceptionally high-speed performer with faster start-up time and quicker refresh rates.
The outstanding image quality on the Olympus TG-1 is a result of its high-sensitivity, high-speed 12-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor combines with a blazing fast, DSLR-quality TruePic™ VI image processor resulting in high-speed autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition, and 2x Super-Resolution Zoom to produce jaw-dropping images in locations that make even the most seasoned photographers cringe. This family of technologies conquers challenging shooting conditions with improved light condensing efficiency, less noise and quick response time – twice as fast as traditional cameras – for definitively unmatched image quality.
For serious photographers, Olympus is offering system expandability for the Olympus TG-1 iHS. A converter ring allows you to add a lens converter adapter, waterproof Fisheye Converter Lens and Tele converter Lens for use on land or in water. The Fisheye Converter Lens captures panoramic, wide-angle shots without sacrificing the brightness of the 4x wide optical zoom (25-100mm*) f2.0 lens. The Tele converter Lens extends your optical zoom from 4x to 6.8x, delivering dramatic close-ups with professional-looking background blur. Combined with the Olympus TG-1 iHS’ 8x Super-resolution Zoom, which extends the range of the optical zoom with virtually no loss of image quality, you can reach an unmatched 13.6x magnification. Both converter lenses are waterproof to 40 feet.
