OlympusOlympus Tough TG-4 adventure camera : Olympus introduces the Stylus Tough TG-4 digital camera. It’s not only extreme sports fans who appreciate rugged cameras and the new Olympus Tough TG-4 flagship will resonate with anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors and wants to capture their experiences in excellent quality, in any environment, without worrying about the light or the state of equipment. The Olympus Tough TG-4 is a powerful all-rounder but its most impressive single feature is the super-bright 25-100mm lens with a 1:2.0 maximum aperture at wide zoom settings. This allows it to capture spectacular, colourful, low-noise shots in light-starved environments where fast shutter speeds and low ISO settings are indispensable.

For example, at 15 metres underwater, where the Olympus TG-4 Tough camera operates successfully without an underwater housing - or even an extra light. Divers will also appreciate the new Underwater HDR feature, the built-in manometer, the glove-friendly and customizable mode dial and four different macro settings. Other highlights include Live Composite, RAW file support and AF Area, which allows you shift the focus within the frame. The ever-expanding family of specialist Tough accessories take shooting into yet more extreme territory - be it photographic, sporting or geographical. That said, the Olympus Stylus TG-4 already comes with a reassuringly long list of ‘-proofs’. It’s pretty rugged right out of the box.

The Olympus Tough TG-4 has five main strengths: its ultra-bright 1:2.0 lens, its Variable Macro system, its range of system accessories, its convenience (GPS, Wi-Fi, geotracking and more) plus - of course - its toughness. The Olympus TG-4 is shockproof to a height of 2.1 metres, crushproof to a weight of 100kg, freezeproof down to -10°C**, dustproof and waterproof to a depth of 15m without a special underwater housing. This tried-and-lab-tested ruggedness makes the Stylus TG-4 a reliable companion for anyone who spends a lot of time in the great outdoors. As the mountaineer, adventurer and keen photographer Ed Farelly said, "From the highest to the deepest, the warmest to the coolest, this camera has literally followed me across the globe and not once has it ever let me down." Farelly was talking about a previous Tough flagship.

Variable Macro system
Spectacular pictures of the natural world are clearly one of the biggest draws when shooting outdoors, so the Olympus TG-4 comes with an advanced, four-mode Variable Macro system that covers a 29cm range - starting at 30cm from the subject and zooming in to just 1cm away. The four modes are Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking. New to Microscope Mode is the slow-synchronize flash, which enhances contrasts and prevents potential over-exposure when you’re very close to the subject. This dramatically improves image quality at very high magnification. Focus Bracketing takes several in-focus photos of the same scene with a different subject in focus and allows you to pick one, whereas the Focus Stacking combines the different shots into one image where everything is in focus. Olympus TG-4 owners can use Focus Stacking without software, which is unique in this camera category.

Olympus Stylus Tough TG-4 features
For people who do want to edit their images on a Personal computer, the Olympus Tough TG4 offers RAW file support. They will appreciate the realism, intense colours and low noise of images taken in low light with low ISO settings and fast shutter speeds, for example deep underwater. This is thanks to the 1:2.0 25-100mm lens that retains its brightness even at wide angles. The results can be spectacular, and not just below sea level. The Olympus TG-4 delivers stand-out images in a variety of low-light situations, for example in combination with the new Live Composite feature that lets campers capture the movement of stars across the night sky without losing sources of light at ground level, such as a brightly lit tent.
