HIGH-SPEED, ULTRA-BRIGHT F2.0 LENS
The TG-1 iHS is the world's first 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" OLED MONITOR
This 3.0-inch 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. Awesome optics, both in camera and on screen.
UNMATCHED RUGGED DURABILITY
THE PROOF IS IN THE BUILD
WATERPROOF TO 40FT.
The TG-1 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 40ft. Even on land, the TG-1 iHS ensures that you'll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.
SHOCKPROOF TO 6.6ft.
The shockproof structure of the TG-1 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 TO 220LBF.
The TG-1 iHS uses a double-layer construction, consisting of a tough yet lightweight polycarbonate resin and a metal frame. The crushproof construction ensures that your camera – and screen! – won't break, even under 220lbs of pressure. No more cracked screens because you've left your camera in your back pocket or suitcase.
FREEZEPROOF TO 14F
Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-1 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-1 iHS by your side, you'll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.
Life gets dirty. Between dusty fields and muddy trails, sometimes your camera doesn't stay as pristine as you'd like it to. But even in less-than-spotless environments, the fine protective sealing of the TG-1 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.
WATER-REPELLANT 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.
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
A high-sensitivity, high-speed 12-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor combines with a blazing fast, DSLR-quality TruePic VI image processor resulting in high-speed autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition, and 2x Super-Resolution Zoom to produce jaw-dropping images in locations that make even the most seasoned photographers cringe. This family of technologies conquers challenging shooting conditions with improved light condensing efficiency, less noise and quick response time – twice as fast as traditional cameras – for definitively unmatched image quality.
SUPER SPORT MODE
Designed specifically to keep up with life-on-the-go photography, the new Super Sport Mode combines high-speed autofocus with extra fast shutter speeds – up to 1/2000 – to freeze the action. Conveniently located on the dial, this mode captures 5 shots in a high-speed burst to ensure crisp shots of even the most extreme action sport settings.
LOW LIGHT MODE
Low Light Mode is perfect for capturing the mood of low-light indoor scenes, beautiful sunsets, or late night outdoor festivities without ruining the ambience with a bright flash. Forget about subject blurring or camera shake ruining the shot – Low Light Mode has you covered.
FULL HD VIDEO WITH HDMI OUTPUT & CONTROL
With the TG-1 iHS, you can shoot 1080p Full HD videos (1920x1080 pixels) at 60 frames per second at the touch of button, allowing for slow-motion playback. Thanks to iHS Technology, your videos will get the VIP treatment with excellent color reproduction and faster processing speeds, while Multi-Motion IS compensates for user movement creating smoother videos. Linear PCM Recording, an audio technology pioneered by Olympus for professional voice recorders, records your videos with high-definition audio for optimal playback results. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a breeze.
HIGH-SPEED SEQUENTIAL SHOOTING
Shoot like a pro! With 10fps 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 (INTELLIGENT AUTO)
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-1 iHS to choose optimum settings so you can focus on capturing that amazing shot.

The Olympus TG-1 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.
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.
