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.
Further advanced image quality and Tough performance
The TG-6 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-6 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.
Folded optics zoom lens
This model achieves the brightest aperture value, f/2.0, for a folded optics type lens. Lenses developed with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens for high image quality.
- DSA lens: Dual Super Aspherical lens
- HR/HD lens: High Refractive Index & Dispersion lens
- Aspherical lenses
Bright 4x zoom lens
The TG-6 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.
New image sensor and image processor
To maximise the capabilities of the high-resolution f/2.0 lens, a new high-speed back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and the TruePic VIII image processor used on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II are included on this model. Noise level has been reduced by 1 step for shooting in the standard ISO sensitivity range and also for shooting in darker areas. These improvements result in even higher image quality.
Image processing that delivers high resolution
The image processing algorithms have been retooled to deliver even higher resolution on the TG-6. They have been modified to provide high resolution for sections with a low difference in contrast particularly when using a low ISO sensitivity setting.
In addition to being dustproof, waterproof up to 15m deep, shockproof up to a 2.1M drop, crushproof up to 100 kgf, and freezeproof down to -10℃, the TG-6 has anti-fog dual pane protective glass. Such Tough performance provides peace of mind when shooting in punishing environments such as the mountains, ocean, and snow.
