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.
