From the Manufacturer



12 MEGAPIXELS | 4X WIDE ZOOM/8X SR ZOOM

DEMAND MORE THAN DURABILITY

The most sophisticated rugged point-and-shoot on the market, the Olympus TG-2 iHS was designed with the serious photographer in mind. In addition to its Shockproof (7ft/2.1m), Crushproof (220lbf/100kgf), Freezeproof (14°F/-10°C), Dustproof design, the TG-2 iHS dives deeper than ever before with an astounding waterproof depth rating of 50 feet (15m) without a housing. But don’t be fooled, this camera's not only for the avid scuba diver, it’s for active photographers who won't sacrifice image quality and performance. The TG-2 iHS is the only rugged camera on the market equipped with an ultra-bright, high-speed f2.0 lens*, allowing you to capture dramatic low light and high-speed action shots. Paired with a 12 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic™ VI Image Processor that fuel Olympus' cutting-edge iHS Technology, you'll get amazing pro image quality and 1080p Full HD Videos in places that your DSLR camera just can’t risk travelling. And with advanced functions like Aperture Priority mode, you’ll have even more control to capture the exact images that you want! Added features like next generation GPS & e.Compass, a 3.0" OLED monitor, Linear PCM Stereo audio recording, High-Speed Sequential Shooting up to 60 frames per second**, four underwater scene modes and two custom modes make this adventure cam stand out in the crowd! Looking for more? The TG-2 iHS is the only rugged camera to feature system expandability to put even more photographic control in your hands; use the telephoto converter lens to achieve even greater optical zoom range and artistic blur or the wide-angle fisheye lens for more expansive views, especially underwater. The completely waterproof system allows you to take your photography to places that your pro system can only dream of going.

SUPERIOR OPTICS

Superior Optics

High-Speed, Ultra-Bright f2.0 Lens
The TG-2 iHS is the only rugged camera on the market to include an ultra-bright, high-speed f2.0 lens* so you can capture scenes that were previously "impossible" with a point & shoot. This new lens strengthens the camera’s shooting capabilities making high-quality images and blazing fast shutter speeds possible even when a flash cannot be used or when shooting fast action or in low light.

3.0" 610K OLED Monitor
This 3.0", high-resolution OLED display (610K dots) provides excellent visibility outdoors enabling you to compose the perfect shot even in direct sunlight. And several protective coatings help to prevent scratches and cut down on reflective glare from bright lights and sun.

LIFEPROOF

Lifeproof

Waterproof 50ft/15m
The TG-2 iHS crushes the notion that cameras are easily damaged by water and humidity. The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus’ long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-1 iHS is completely waterproof down to a new depth of 50ft. Even on land, the TG-2 iHS ensures that you’ll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.

Shockproof 7ft/2.1m
The shockproof structure of the TG-2 iHS ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.

Crushproof 220lbf/100kgf
No case, no problem! With a rugged body and reinforced LCD, the TG-2 iHS withstands up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.

Freezeproof 14°F/-10°C
Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-2 iHS is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-2 iHS by your side, you’ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.

Dustproof
Don’t let a little wind and dust ruin your plans – or your camera! Take photos confidently in the driest conditions without worrying about destructive dirt and dust

Water-repellent Lens Coating
Splash after splash, never worry about water droplets obstructing your images thanks to the water-repellent lens coating that prevents water from remaining on the lens surface. And because it’s applied to the OLED monitor as well, composing shots in the rain or while riding the waves will be a breeze.

Double Lock Durability
With all the care that is put in to protecting the inner workings of your camera, it would be a shame for the system to fail because the battery door opens unintentionally. Thanks to the multi-directional, double-lock mechanism, your camera is protected from accidental openings under water.

OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY

iHS Technology
Microscopic Macro Mode

iHS Technology
A powerful, DSLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom.

Aperture Priority Mode
For added flexibility and creative control, Aperture Priority Mode allows you to manually adjust the aperture for optimal results. Simply set the mode dial to "A", to make adjustments.

1080p Full HD Video with HDMI Output & Control
A simple, one-touch button allows you shoot clear, crisp full HD videos in 1080p right from your camera.

Microscopic Macro Mode
Check out every minute detail of your subjects by employing Macroscopic Macro Zoom. Combining the optical zoom and super resolution zoom, macro shooting factors equal to 7 to 14x (35mm conversion) are possible from a distance of 1 cm. Capture every nook and cranny with stunning clarity to bring you even closer to the microscopic world around us!

High-Speed Sequential Shooting
Shoot like a pro! With 5fps high-speed burst shooting, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence of images at the touch of a button. Still afraid you’ll miss a moment? At 3MP, the frame rate increases to an astounding 60 shots per second. You’ll have so many great shots, you won’t be able to share just one!

Enhanced iAuto
In iAuto mode, the camera automatically detects the subject, lighting and situation to identify the scene you’re shooting – up to 30 different scenes including Night, Sport, Beach and Snow, Underwater Snapshot and Backlight HDR – and adjusts the settings for ideal results. Leave it up to the TG-2 iHS to choose optimum settings so you can focus on capturing that amazing shot.

SYSTEM EXPANDABILITY

System Expandability

LENS ACCESSORIES THAT TAKE
FUNCTIONALITY TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.


Fisheye Converter Lens
Achieve panoramic wide-angle shots without sacrificing the brightness of the f2.0 lens. Even in darker underwater scenes down to 50ft., you can shoot wider, more dynamic images that beautifully reproduce underwater scenery. Waterproof to 50ft.

Don’t forget the adapter for your Fisheye or Tele Converter Lens! Already have a stash of favorite lens filters? The converter adapter can accommodate any 40.5mm filter.

Underwater Housing
50 feet not deep enough for you? Dive to depths of 135 feet (45m) with the Olympus PT-053 underwater housing, designed specifically for the TG-2 iHS. Featuring a large, responsive shutter button, precision zoom lever and a tight O-ring main seal with safety lock, the PT-053 allows divers, from beginner to dive master, to capture worry-free images of unique underwater scenes.

Customize your TG-2 iHS
The TG-2 iHS ships with a premium wrist strap and two front lens rings - one in red, one in black - so you can change up the look of your camera.

EXTREME VERSATILITY

Extreme Versatility

GPS & e.Compass
The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-2 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-2 iHS is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Google Earth and Picasa. And with the brand new LI-90 battery, you’ll worry less about battery life and more about your next destination.

Manometer
Mark your spot on the map with the built-in manometer. Records elevation & water depth and even displays a warning when the user approaches a depth of 50ft.

Automatic Underwater Balance
The Olympus TG-2 iHS boasts 4 different underwater scene modes -- Underwater Snapshot, Underwater Wide 1, Underwater Wide 2 and Underwater Macro -- each carefully calibrated to allow for optimal color balance, exposure and flash so you automatically get the best results. Beautiful underwater photos made simpler.

LED Illuminator
An LED Illuminator is like a mini-flashlight on the front of the camera to enhance focus and exposure for macro shooting – great for underwater close-ups where light is scarce. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.

Magic Art Filters
Express your creativity with 11 different special effects for your photos and HD videos. Olympus’ Magic Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new and unexpected moods ranging from the excited to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Dramatic and Fragmented. (Some effects apply only to still photos. Effects may reduce image size.)

Color Name: Black
Let me start my review with some background information. I've been a professional photographer for the last 10 years and a digital-camera enthusiast since they started becoming available. I shoot with heavy, bulky, expensive equipment when I'm working, but when I'm having a good time with my family I look for something a little different in a camera.

Right now, most of us have phones that take pretty good pictures when in good light. The problem with phones, and other point-and-shoot cameras is that you can't get in on the action very well as you're using them. They're fine if you want to be the one who's on the sideline trying to get the people having fun to look at you.

If you're like me, this isn't good enough. I take pictures for a living, so the last thing I want to do is take more and miss out on all of the fun moments with my family. This is why I have been snatching up the "tough"-style cameras every year in search of one to love. After owning several Canons, Nikons, and even waterproof housings, last year I finally found what I felt was the *perfect* take-anywhere camera: the Olympus TG-1. Over the last 12 months, I have really given it a beating and it's still working perfectly. In fact, last month I just got back from a trip to the Great Barrier Reef where it took some of the most incredible pictures you can imagine.

Of course, when I saw there was an update to my beloved TG-1, I knew I had to have one. Fast forward to two weeks ago and my package arrived.

PROS

Fast lens. Probably the single most defining feature of this camera as compared to other waterproof options available today.

Takes pictures immediately when you press down the shutter. Very responsive.

Built very well. Bigger than some other waterproof cameras, but feels much more sturdy. I like the trade-off.

Looks nice. Red color is dark, perhaps crimson. Nicely done.

Compartments lock, just like the TG-1, so as to ensure no unwanted openings.

Picture quality is excellent for a point and shoot. Lower light photos are okay. I shoot most low light with a DSLR, and this doesn't really compare, but it is better than the average point and shoot camera.

Flash is quick.

Menu/screens are nicely done. Easy to navigate. That can't be said for all waterproof point and shoot cameras. Olympus has done this well. Viewing screen is pretty clear, too. I like it.

Ability to take it anywhere. This alone has merit. But there's not much use in taking a "lifeproof" camera places if it can't keep up to some minimum standards for photos. The 2.0 lens really helps allow light in for low light situations, and it is exceptional for snapping photos right when you want. Not two or three seconds after you press the shutter.

CONS

Video noise. I bought the TG-1 two separate times. The first time I thought there might be an issue with the unit I had. The video was noisy and had a ticking/jack hammer type sound. Not sure what it was. I returned it and gave the TG-1 another chance. Second time--same thing. Major bummer. Hoping the TG2 would be better, I bought it the first day it became available. The TG2 has improved upon the video noise issues, but hasn't eliminated them.

Color Name: Black Verified Purchase
I have used a (highly reviewed) 10MP f2.8 Canon SD790 from 2009 for the past few years, and have sought an upgrade due to common issues with such small point-and-shoot cameras (1) effects (vignetting, blurring) from lens aberrations that were especially noticeable in landscape photography (2) fragile construction. There have also been many circumstances when I have not been able to use the camera due to moisture or excessive dust during outdoor activities.

(Note: Before discovering the TG series, I was convinced to buy either the Panasonic LX7 or Sony RX100 for sake of their extremely high image quality.)

Photo Performance: small but noticeable upgrade
At first glance, the SD790 photos seemed to be better with bolder colors and better definition. But on closer inspection, the difference is only due to a lower average exposure on the SD790, and higher processor contrast. Carefully analyzing small leaves and tree trunks, the TG-2 does show much more detail. On 0% zoom, test photos do show some pixel distortion in the 4 corners of the shot, but zooming in a tiny bit (about 10%) is enough to remove the distortions from your shot. Low light photos give great colors, and the f2.0 lens is way better than most cameras, but the noise level will never be DSLR quality; head to the Sony RX100 or bigger if that is your priority.
I have not used the super macro yet, but professional reviews claim it is very good.

Add-on Lenses: extra expensive plus
The two extra lenses are probably not quite worth the $110 each, considering that you also need a $20 adapter (I recommend 1 each). They are both small, high quality glass.
