Olympus PT-058/Tough TG-5 Camera Kit
Olympus TG6 Tough Camera with PT-059 Underwater Housing
A great package that is ready for diving! This bundle features the Olympus Tough TG-6 camera and the Olympus PT-059 underwater housing which is rated to a depth of 145′ (45 meters).
The new flagship of Olympus’ ultra-rugged TOUGH series is ideal for anyone with a passion for outdoor sports and adventure and high-quality photographs. Its super-bright, large-aperture lens makes first-class shots possible even in poor light. The 1:2.0-4.9 wide, high-speed 25-100mm* 4x optical zoom unit feeds the same TruePic VIII image processor found in Olympus’ high-end OM-D E-M1 MKII interchangeable lens camera. The TG-5 features the ability to shoot in RAW Format and Underwater HDR mode. Also featured is the ability to shoot 4K Ultra HD video.
Use Pro Capture Mode to nail perfect shots that require split second timing. It buffers a running series of high-resolution images, then captures a precise moment plus the previous 5 frames with a single button press.
Also featuring four-mode Super Macro system gives nature enthusiasts the potential to capture startling close-ups in a detail and quality that makes sharing a must. Uploading is instant and easy via WiFi and a smartphone. The TOUGH TG-6 caters to its most creative owners with specialist converter lenses and macro accessories. For the most adventurous, it comes in a virtually indestructible, trademark TOUGH body. The TOUGH TG-6 is available in black or red.
One glance at the new camera’s riveted casing cements the TOUGH reputation for excellent build quality. It 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.
TG6 captures lifelike images with an unmatched combination of features.
For the first time in a rugged compact camera, you can shoot in RAW for the highest possible resolution and maximum creative control. With Olympus’ advanced 12 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor and the TruePic VIII Image Processor, you will capture the smallest details and the brightest colors of every exciting moment.
The TOUGH TG-6’s reassuring body protects some world-class imaging technology.
For example, the first-ever macro mode to feature four settings in one. Advanced super Macro Mode comprises Microscope Mode, Microscope control Mode, Focus Stacking Mode and Focus Bracketing Mode.
Microscope Mode lets you magnify a subject more than 40x from as close as 1cm. So if it measures just 1mm in reality it can impressively appear as large as 44.4mm on the LCD. Focus Stacking Mode counteracts unintentional bokeh caused by a shallow depth of field. It automatically shoots multiple shots of a macro subject with different parts in focus, then merges them to a crisply focused image of publishable quality. The upshot is maximum creativity without a computer –which is just what you need when you’re miles from home.
Shutter Speed Control for Dark Backgrounds
The Olympus TG-6 offers more exposure control than any previous Tough camera by providing access to adjust the shutter speed value. While there is still no Manual Mode, there is a new Minimum Shutter Speed setting. As long as Auto-ISO is also turned on, the camera may be assigned a minimum shutter speed as high as 1/500 second. A shutter speed range of 1/125 – 1/250 second will do great for most wide angle and macro scenes. There are plenty of stops both faster and slower to get the perfect exposure for your shot. Even though the option to adjust this setting is somewhat buried in the menus, it is still quickly accessible and makes changes underwater an easy task.
PT-059 Underwater Housing
The ultra-rugged TG-6 is waterproof up to 50 feet (15 meters). The PT-059 underwater case with its durable, high-quality polycarbonate construction extends the TG-6’s depth range to 145 feet (45 meters) while providing an extra measure of protection from rough handling top side. Designed to give you complete control of all camera functions, the PT-059 also features an M52 screw mount for filters and converter lenses that expand your options for macro and wide-angle shooting; an optical connection for an external underwater flash; and multi-coated glass to reduce reflections.
