Description

The Olympus Tough TG-6 is suitable for photographers who don't fear a little water or dirt. Thanks to the waterproof and shock, impact, frost, and dust-resistant casing, you can bring the camera to outdoor activities, on trips, or in bad weather conditions. Use the macro system to take detailed macro pictures in nature. The design is waterproof down to a depth of 15 meters, so you can record the underwater world while you're snorkeling or diving. You can choose from 3 white balance settings to record under water for vivid colors. In addition, you can take sharp pictures in locations with tricky light situations using the HDR function. This camera can film in 4K resolution at 30 frames per second or in Full HD at 120 frames per second. You can slow down the Full HD footage to slow-motion recordings.

    High-quality and perfect compact camera, highly recommended.

    • great camera
    • Long lifespan
    • No

    This is now my 3rd + 4th camera (bought 2 new ones for expansion at work) from the Tough series, which is used daily and intensively without problems.
    (My first is now 7 years old and still works perfectly)

    Poor quality, but nice pictures.

    Arnout Huisman | 8 February 2021 | Color: Red | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Take great pictures
    • Poor quality / reliability
    • Broken quickly

    Broken within 2 months, with flickering green screen + crashes at random times. After 'repair' already after 3x use (within a few months) exactly the same defect. Not too high quality.

    Robust device, beautiful photos for extreme environments

    arjen ceulemans | 9 November 2019 | Color: Red | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Macro photos are very good!
    • Sports mode is ideal for fast images
    • Quickly transfer photos to your smartphone with the app
    • In cold water, the lens/screen sometimes fogs up

    I mainly use this device for canyoning photography. Takes great photos and is durable for an extreme environment where water and rocks meet.

    Strong Compact camera.
    • Super strong camera
    • detailed pictures of close
    • Underwater photo setting
    • You can also buy an Underwater housing to dive up to 40 meters deep
    • Film at 240 - or 480 FPS
    • menu and settings work a bit illogical
    • Underwater housing not for sale on Coolblue

    You can take super sharp photos with it for a small compact camera.
    Even passing cars can take several photos per second.
    He also takes sharp detailed photos up close.
    You can even film with it, in 4K, or at 60,120,240,480 fps.
    Only the housing for diving cannot be bought on coolblue (Olympus PT‑059). Can't test underwater yet. But a small leak in the housing does not kill your camera, because it is also waterproof.

    meets the criteria it promises.
    • no charger

    My previous camera is broken.... old age: TG 820 and I made a lot of underwater pictures with it and even when it rains hard, you don't have to be afraid to still be able to take pictures. So I went looking for a successor and bought the TG 6. At first sight, it fulfills the functions I expect it to have. Photos are of good quality, just a pity that I don't have a battery charger with it, always opening that small compartment is messy work and that the battery of the previous camera does not fit. Because I already had a spare battery for that. Now I have to buy everything again.
