Tough Performance

Snorkel trips, heavy rain, sandy beaches, snowy mountain peaks... The Olympus Tough TG-6 can go places and capture photos/videos that most cameras can’t. Designed to withstand some of the harshest conditions (and mishaps), it’s a compact camera that’s as ready for adventure as you are.

A waterproof sealing and double-lock mechanism, airtight construction, protective interior structure and dual-pane protective glass make the TG-6 waterproof to 15m, dustproof, shockproof to 2.1m, crushproof to 100kgf and freezeproof to -10°C. It even has anti-fogging properties to cope with sudden temperature changes. No need to worry if the camera gets dirty; simply rinse it off with fresh water.

Perfect for Travel

With a compact, 253g (including battery and memory card) body and versatile 4x optical zoom (25-100mm equivalent) lens, the Olympus TG-6 is perfect for travel. Its 2x digital teleconverter expands your zoom range to 8x (25-200mm equivalent), enabling you to capture everything from a sweeping landscape to a distant animal up close. A bright f/2 maximum aperture at the lens’ wide end is great for shooting in low light and/or capturing fast action with reduced subject blur.

Enjoy superb visibility with a 3.0-inch, 1.04 million-dot rear LCD monitor, and easily control the zoom lever and control dial even while wearing gloves.

Excellent Image Quality

The Olympus TG-6 delivers excellent image quality courtesy of a 12MP CMOS sensor and the same processing engine as the professional Olympus OM-D E-M 1 Mark II. The sensor is backlit and topped with anti-reflective glass, resulting in photos (JPEG and/or RAW) and videos with high resolution, low noise, and suppressed ghosting and flaring that provides crisper, more contrast-rich results.

Made for Unmissable Moments

The most awe-inspiring moments are often the hardest to capture, but the Olympus TG-6 has the speed you need not to miss them. With 20 fps sequential shooting you can snap every instant of a fast-paced action sequence. Pro Capture mode is another fantastic feature, which shoots images at 10 fps (frames per second) from around half a second before you press the shutter. This enables you to take shots that camera time lag would otherwise make impossible, like the moment a whale spouts water.

4K Video, Full HD Slow Motion & Time Lapse

Bring your adventures to life through video, be it in stunningly fine 4K detail or mesmerising 120 fps slow motion in Full High Definition. With shooting intervals of 1 second to 24 hours, the TG-6 can also auto-create time-lapse movies – ideal for capturing elusive creatures, or landscapes transitioning from day to night.

Variable Macro System

Photograph tiny insects, flowers, snowflakes and more in magnificent, up-close detail. The Olympus TG-6’s Variable Macro System offers four macro shooting modes (and two separately sold accessories) to help you capture subjects just 1 cm away from the lens.

The Microscope and Microscope Control modes virtually recreate the experience of looking through a microscope. Meanwhile, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking modes simplify the tricky job of capturing your desired depth of field. Use Focus Bracketing mode to take up to 30 photos, each with slight variations in focus, so you can choose the best. Or use Focus Stacking mode to shoot and composite multiple photos with different depths of field to produce macro shots that are entirely in focus, from foreground to background.

Advanced Underwater Shooting

Capture breathtakingly high-quality underwater scenes with the Olympus TG-6’s dedicated underwater mode – the most advanced in a Tough series camera yet. Choose from five upgraded underwater modes (Macro, Microscope, Wide, Snapshot, HDR) optimised for shooting in shallow water, in dark conditions, small subjects up close, and dramatic variations in darkness and brightness. Pop on the FCON-T02 fisheye converter (sold separately) to create striking, super wide-angle circular and diagonal fisheye photos.

Field Sensor System

Don’t just take pictures of your experiences. Equipped with a built-in compass, GPS sensor, thermometer and barometer, the Olympus TG-6 automatically tracks location data such as longitude, latitude, air/water temperature, altitude, and shooting direction. Using the Olympus Image Track smartphone app you can link this data to your images, allowing you to map your travels, GPS tag your shots and recreate your adventures.

Does the Olympus TG-6 come with a lens cap?

There is an optional LB-T01 Lens Barrier accessory available (sold separately), which helps to protect the lens surface from dirt and scratches. It’s designed to be easily open/closed, even when you’re wearing gloves.

Please note that certain accessories and conversion lenses (i.e. those to be attached to the mount, silicone jacket and underwater housing) can't be used at the same time as the LB-T01 Lens Barrier.

Macro LED illumination also can't be used while the lens barrier is attached, as it creates shadows in photos.

Yes, the Olympus TG-6 supports RAW processing in camera.

What’s the closest that the Olympus TG-6 can focus?

In macro mode the Olympus TG-6 can focus as closely as 1cm away from the lens. In normal mode the minimum focus distance is 10cm.

Can the Olympus TG-6 be used for diving?

The Olympus TG-6 camera itself is waterproof to 15m. However, inside the Olympus PT-059 Underwater Case (sold separately) the TG-6 can be used at depths of up to 45m.

The PT-059 Underwater Case still allows you to adjust the camera control dial for exposure compensation. It also supports the use of two external flash units (sold separately).

Is there a teleconverter for the Olympus TG-6?

The Olympus TG-6 is compatible with the Olympus TCON-T01 Teleconverter (sold separately), which converts the camera lens’ focal length to 1.7x.
