Rain, extreme cold, mud, sand, and drops, Even in the harshest of environments you want to be able to capture that perfect shot without worrying about your camera. Olympus has the answer. The Olympus TG-1 iHS Digital Camera is the first Tough camera to be equipped with a bright, f2.0 lens. Tried and true Olympus original Tough technology meets high image quality, making the TG-1 an indispensable companion for all the scenes you encounter.

The TG-1 is the first Tough camera to include a high-speed f2.0 lens, making high-quality images and a high-speed shutter possible even in places where the flash cannot be used. The combination of toughness and outstanding image quality make it possible to shoot in the harshest of conditions. Just imagine: capture beautiful underwater scenery and aquatic life, snap shots of plants and animals that only show themselves on rainy days, capture softly dancing snowflakes on a ski slope at night; the possibilities are truly endless.

Even when shooting night scenes and active subjects which have been considered difficult to shots so far, details are not sacrificed. With the TG-1, you can always capture the shots you want, when you want. "iHS" is the cutting-edge technology to record as you desire without fail. The powerful image processor, TruePic V or TruePic VI realized high image quality and high-speed processing. The backlit CMOS sensor realized the fast drive as well as high sensitivity and less noise. With "iHS" technology provided by them, various scenes can be captured beautifully and reliably. "iHS" is the name of the state-of-the-art technology which stands for Intelligence, High-Sensitivity, and High Speed.

With the inclusion of the bright f2.0 lens, the TG-1 lens is larger than those on previous cameras. The 2m shock-proof specification goes beyond just proving that the TG-1 is tough to break. It also retains the accuracy of the lens, shutter, and aperture even when subjected to drops, bumps and other impacts. Even if the camera is dropped, you can continue to use TG-1 without even a thought of it being broken, or experiencing any change in its focusing capabilities. It can take bumps and drops in stride, still providing high-quality images.

The TG-1 uses a double-layered construction, consisting of a tough and lightweight polycarbonate resin that is also used in trunk cases, and a metal frame, lending elasticity to the camera. This crush-proof construction ensures that the camera will operate normally even if a 100 kg weight is applied evenly across the surface of the camera body.

The TG-1 crushes the notion that cameras are easily damaged by humidity or water. The Olympus original complete sealing system and double lock construction ensure that the TG-1 is completely waterproof down to a depth of 12 m. Not only can the camera be used during heavy rain and along rushing rapids, but it can also be taken along when snorkeling or scuba diving.

The TG-1 is designed to continue operating smoothly even in temperatures down to minus 10 degree C / 14 degree F. Auto zoom malfunction, the most common problem when shooting outdoors in winter, is completely unknown to the TG-1. The range of possibilities is even wider than ever.


  • Speed - A high-speed f/2.0 lens, previously unheard of in a rugged point and shoot, strengthens the camera's shooting capabilities, making faster shutter speeds possible. A 12-megapixel, backlit CMOS sensor combined with a fast, DSLR-quality image processor result in high-speed autofocus, rapid response rates and multi-burst capabilities.
  • Ultra Durable - Made for shooting in extreme conditions and able to withstand rough treatment, the TG-1 is called Tough for a reason. Completely waterproof to 40 feet, it's ideal for underwater photography or a day at the beach and shockproof to 6.6 feet, it drops, you don't worry. Freezeproof to 14 degree and, thanks to lightweight polycarbonate resin and two metal frames, it is crushproof to a weight of 220 pounds. The camera will work when and where you need it and not show up with a cracked screen when you pull it out of your backpack. Raindrops, water spray and snow are not a problem because the specially coated lens prevents water from remaining on the lens and OLED monitor. And thanks to a fine protective sealing, dust and debris stay out of the body. Double-lock durability means that the battery and SD card won't fall out when bumped. A multi-directional lock mechanism protects your camera from accidental openings, especially important when shooting underwater.
  • OLED Display - A bright 3.0 In. high resolution (610k dots) OLED monitor is visible in strong light, so framing and composition are made easier and because it's applied with a protective coating to further cut down on glare and prevent scratches, the monitor is as tough as the camera.
  • Video and Audio - With the TG-1 iHS, you can shoot 1080p Full HD videos (1920x1080 pixels). Thanks to iHS technology, your videos will benefit from excellent color reproduction and faster processing speeds, and Multi-Motion Image Stabilization compensates for movement during recording. Linear PCM Recording, an audio technology pioneered by Olympus, records your videos with high-definition audio for optimal playback results. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a snap.
  • Super Sport Mode - 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 five shots in a high-speed burst to ensure crisp shots in even the most extreme action sport settings.
  • Low Light Mode - Low light mode is perfect for capturing the mood without losing the details. Confidently photograph low-light indoor scenes, sunsets, concerts, or nighttime festivities without blurred-out faces or bright flash ruining the ambience.
  • Enhanced Intelligent Auto Mode - In iAuto mode, the Olympus TG-1 iHS automatically detects the subject, lighting and situation to identify the scene you're shooting - up to 30 different scenes - and adjusts the settings for ideal results.
  • Converter Lens Compatibility - A converter ring allows you to add a lens converter adapter, and with that, a waterproof Fisheye Converter Lens or a Teleconverter Lens. The Fisheye Converter Lens captures panoramic, wide-angle shots without sacrificing the brightness of the 4x wide optical zoom f/2.0 lens. The Teleconverter Lens extends your optical zoom from 4x to 6.8x, delivering dramatic close-ups with professional-looking details.
  • GPS, e.compass and Manometer Functions - Location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with every image. The camera is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken with recorded images by using applications such as Google Earth and Picasa. The built-in manometer records elevation & water depth and even displays a warning when the user approaches a depth of 40ft.
  • High-Speed Sequential Shooting - With 5fps high-speed burst shooting, you'll be sure to get the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence of images at the touch of a button. At 3MP setting, the frame rate increases to an astounding 60 shots per second! Never miss an action shot again.
  • Underwater Features - The Olympus TG-1 has 4 different underwater scene modes - Underwater Snapshot, Underwater Wide 1, Underwater Wide 2 and Underwater Macro - each calibrated to allow for optimal color balance, exposure and flash so you automatically get the best underwater results. Dive to depths of 135 feet (45m) with the new Olympus PT-053 underwater housing (sold separately), designed specifically for the TG-1 iHS. With a large, responsive shutter button, precision zoom lever and a tight O-ring seal with safety lock, the PT-053 allows divers, from beginner to master, to capture worry-free images of unique underwater scenes.
  • Magic Art Filters - Be creative with 12 different special effects for your photos and HD videos. Olympus' Magic Art Filters offers simple ways to put great touches on your images. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Dramatic and Fragmented.
