Superior Optics

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”, 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.

LIFEPROOF

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 14°F

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-820 iHS by your side, you’ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.

DUSTPROOF

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-820 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.

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

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 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.

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 65ft., you can shoot wider, more dynamic images that beautifully reproduce underwater scenery. Waterproof to 65ft.

TELE CONVERTER LENS

Telephotography of 1.7x extends your optical zoom from 4x to nearly 7x. Get highly artistic shots that draw attention to the subject by blurring the background, and achieve higher shutter speeds while zooming in close on a subject on the move. Waterproof to 65ft.

LENS CONVERTER ADAPTER

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 45mm filter.

UNDERWATER HOUSING

40 feet not deep enough for you? Dive to depths of 135 feet (45m) with the new Olympus PT-053 underwater housing, designed specifically for the TG-1 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.

Extreme Versatility

GPS & E.COMPASS

The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-1 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-1 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 40ft.

AUTOMATIC UNDERWATER BALANCE

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.

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 12 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, Drawing, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Dramatic and Fragmented. (Some effects apply only to still photos. Effects may reduce image size.)

Tough TG-1 iHS

I love this camera. Its everything they say it is. TOUGH!
One thing they could work on is making the decorative ring around the lens to screw on tighter. Its removable so that you can add other lenses, but mine kept coming loose and I finally lost it. Had to order another one online. My camera is black, but I ordered a red ring so that I can see that it is on the camera at all times. Kinda gives it a cool look with the red ring in the middle.

Awesome camera!!

I purchased the Tough TG-1 iHS in August 2012. . I was drawn to this set up as it can be used under water, in snow, ice, rain, sun, and just about any weather condition you can imagine. I do own several cameras which include models for use under water with a separate housing. The TG-1 is phenomenal as there is no separate housing to purchase or use in the water or inclement weather. I also use this set up for taking photos at concerts (between the front row seats and the quality of the speed, lens and all of the TG-1) I can't go wrong. The shots I have obtained of performers on stage with the zoom as well as the two optional lenses I picked up for this camera I could not ask for a better picture or results. I am so impressed with this camera!! I actually did drop this one onto marble floor tiles from about five feet.....no damage whatsoever in the body of the guts, lens, etc. It was amazing. That would have been the death of any other camera out there. The only accessory I "need" is a lens cap for the body's lens....lost one at a concert and I don't see any available at all for this TG-1. I'm now using the cap from one of my extra lenses for the TG-1 but I would prefer to have protection for all of the lenses on this camera. I can't rave enough about this camera. The one thing I had to adjust to is the audio pickups are on the top of the camera where I tend to place my fingers to line up my shots. I try to remember to place my fingers "properly" while shooting video with this one. I can't say enough great things about this set up. If you are "thinking" about buying a set up like this look no further!!! I am having so much fun with the TG-1!! Thank you, Olympus! (I also have an Olympus E Volt 500 SLR, Nikons...film and digital and Canons, too). I LOVE this TG-1!!

Camera was a lemon

The camera worked for about 3 days and then would no longer turn on. Returned it 3 times for repairs and each time it came back with different problems.

Good product

Have nothing but great things to say about picture and video quality. When I purchased the camera I bought the fish eye and extra zoom lens to compliment it. I will say however I was greatly disappointed with the quality of the LCD screen. I had the camera in my backpack just a week after I purchased it and it rubbed up against some harder materials and scratched and scuffed the LCD. I was suprised to see this from a shockproof, waterproof, dustproof, "bulletproof" camera. When I brought this to Olympus' attention and they informed me that the LCD scratches are cosmetic and are not covered under warranty nor could they recommend any products to repair that would not further damage the screen I was shocked. I deal with it, I was just dissappointed with the quality of a $600 purchase.

Love my purchase

I'm not a professional. However, I just purchased this camera and absolutely love it. Had it in my pool yesterday and took great pictures and video. Looking forward to taking it on vacation!

Olympus came through!

If you read my previous review you'll see I lost the front ring (as others had), but in a short amount of time Olympus emailed me after I contacted customer service and said they would replace it! Thank you, Olympus. Great customer service. Your rating goes up in my book.

awesome camera

I'm an outdoors guy - I fly fish, float tube, bass fish, kayak, mountain bike, hike and camp. Due to this, I wanted something that could deal with being bumped, dropped and possibly submerged. This camera just filled the bill.

I had an old Kodak digital that, for the money, was pretty good - 2 mp with 3X zoom and shot videos. I'd dropped it into a couple of rivers and 1 lake. I'd take out the batteries, the ram and let it air dry, it always hung in there and worked.

When I saw the Tough TG-1 and read the description - it was a shoe-in for me to purchase. I fooled around with it at home and finally 2 days ago, got to take it out on the water with me while bass fishing. The picture quality is excellent. The auto-focus and auto-adjust for blurriness, especially when shooting vids is excellent. The zoom is killer! A sign saying 'SLOW, No Wake' on the lake was about 300 yards off. The zoom was good enough to be able to read the sign in the picture.

I dropped it on the driveway when I was loading my truck before fishing - big deal. The only thing I didn't do was stick it in the lake and shoot a pic or vid......next trip.

I love this camera!

Ring easily falls off - now lost forever

I love this camera. I have nothing but praise for it's ease of use and spectacular photos even just on auto. There are also a multitute of functions I haven't even tried yet. I haven't put it completely through it's "tough" paces, but it has been knocked around on mountain bike rides and survived (even made some pretty funny movies that way). However I am a little mad that the ring on the front came off so easily. It practically just falls off with no provocation. I had to watch for that but alas on this last bike ride it has been lost forever. I hope it stays waterproof and tough without it.

Great Outdoor Camera

I absolutely love this camera. I shoots great quality for a point and shoot. It's supermacro function shoots in amazing HD, everyone was jealous of my photos. Not to mention it can go anywhere. It's low-light function is great, it can get some pretty amazing shots of the stars.
