Olympus Stylus Tough TG-5 Digital Camera - Black

Olympus SKU: V104190BU000 | Helix SKU: OYV104190BU000

Built for adventure. Designed to bring back amazing looking souvenirs. The Tough TG-5 is packed with pro features that help you nail bright, crisp outdoor shots even in challenging conditions. You’ll find imaging firepower that’s optimized for shooting action like a fast F2.0 Olympus lens, high-resolution RAW stills, and spectacular Ultra HD 4K video. Action Track Sensors record location, temperature, direction, and altitude data that bring your images and video to life. As with all Tough cameras, it’s waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, freezeproof, and dustproof. No other camera handles so much abuse while producing stunning photography like the TG-5.


The TG-5 has the imaging power you need to never miss a shot. Its specialized image sensor and dual quad core TruePic™ VIII Processor minimize noise to produce sharp shots in all lighting conditions, even underwater and in low light. Capture fast moving subjects without blur thanks to the bright F2.0 lens, and shoot continuously up to 20 frames per second in full res RAW. 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.


When you're on an adventure, you're focused on getting awesome shots. Capture the complete picture with TG-5’s built-in Action Track Sensors. A GPS, compass, temperature sensor, and a manometer for altitude and depth record data about your movement and environment. Use the free Olympus Image Track app on a smart device to view and store your tracking data synced with your photography. Easily export stills and videos with data overlays to relive and share your adventures. And with the TG-5’s built-in Wi-Fi, you can compose images, control camera settings, and shoot remotely all from your smart device.


Whether you’re shooting on a rafting trip or in a snowboard park, you’re focused on getting awesome shots. Your camera should take care of itself. The TG-5 does – no protective housing needed. It’s waterproof to 50 ft (15 m), crushproof up to 220 lbf (100 kgf), and shockproof from 7 ft (2.1 m). It’s dustproof and works great even at a bone-chilling 14°F (-10°C). When you’re on the go, temperatures can change quickly. That’s why the TG-5’s lens is equipped with Anti-Fog Dual Pane Protective Glass to stop moisture from getting in. We’ve even designed the knobs and buttons for easy operation while you’re wearing heavy gloves.


With TG-5, incredible still shots are only half the story. Simply turn the TG-5’s Mode Dial to the movie icon to capture Ultra HD 4K video with spectacular detail just as you remember it – the colors in a sunset, the coral on a reef, a skier carving a mountainside. Besides jaw-dropping 4K, you can shoot video in Full HD 1080 or HD 720. Get creative with TG-5’s Full HD 120 fps High Speed Video for slow motion playback. For longer adventures, the 4K Time Lapse feature lets you easily create short videos of extended periods of time.


An exotic flower, a multicolored seashell, an insect on a leaf. The TG-5 makes incredible macro photography easy. Turn the Mode Dial to the microscope icon and shoot as close as 1 cm from your subject. Microscope Control Mode provides magnification in precise steps up to 44x. Use the Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking Modes to easily create images with maximum depth of field and razor sharp focus. Add the optional LG-1 Light Guide to evenly illuminate still subjects up close and the optional FD-1 Flash Diffuser to freeze moving macro subjects at fast shutter speeds.


The TG-5's ergonomic design features an Accessory Lock to secure optional lenses and other accessories. The waterproof TCON-T01 Teleconverter Lens boosts the TG-5’s optical zoom to nearly 7x, while the waterproof FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter Lens produces distinctive ultra-wide photos. Shoot evenly lit macro shots with help from the LG-1 Light Guide and waterproof FD-1 Flash Diffuser. Keep your TG-5 conveniently strapped to a backpack or chest harness using the CSCH-123 Sport Holder, and dive deeper – up to 147 feet (45 meters) – using the PT-058 Underwater Housing.
