When you are looking for the ultimate tough, go‑anywhere camera to capture the highlights of your latest adventure, the best‑in‑class just got better. The Olympus Tough! TG‑5 is the latest flagship Tough! camera and it comes with some serious enhancements. The class leading super bright 25‑100mm* F2 lens is married to an all new sensor, which combined with the latest TruePic VIII image processor taken from the Olympus Pro flagship system camera OM‑D E‑M1 Mark II deliver significant improvements in speed and still image quality in all conditions, while video now boasts 4K and 120fps Full HD high‑speed movies for better slow motion quality. Added to this and the legendary tough performance are new easy to access controls and dual pane anti‑fog glass. For spectacular nature shots, the TG‑5 has an advanced, four‑mode Variable Macro system, with Microscope, Microscope Control, Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking Mode. The latter works without software, which is unique in this camera category. To maximise realism and colours and minimise noise, the TG‑5 also supports RAW files. As Tough!’s tend to be used when the elements are at their harshest, this matters, so for all those who want to share spectacular evidence of their exploits this summer: Look no further than the new Tough! TG‑5.
