The Olympus TG-4 is the latest in a long line of Olympus Tough cameras. Built to withstand the most punishing conditions, the TG-4 is waterproof to 15M, crushproof to 100kg and shockproof from drops up to 2M.
As well as the rugged build quality that Olympus has become famous for, the TG-4 also ups the ante with class leading image quality and the previously unheard of ability (in shockproof cameras) to record images in the RAW format, allowing photographers more flexibility in post processing and editing of their images.
Further evolved to perfectly capture the most amazing moments.
Introducing the Stylus TG-4 Tough, the pinnacle of the Tough series. It is equipped with a variety of features that perfectly capture the most amazing moments in any environment, including a bright f/2.0 lens, Microscope Mode, a variety of underwater modes, and GPS. New accessories that expand your photographic field have also been introduced, including a converter lens and Sport Holder. This is a must-have camera for those who enjoy outdoor sports such as diving, mountain climbing, and hiking.
Capture the action in high image quality
Whether in the mountains, by the ocean, in rocky terrain or the snow, the Stylus Tough series is at home in the most brutal environments. Among other models, the TG-4 comes out on top with features such as the bright f/2.0 lens.
Bright f/2.0 lens
With a bright f/2.0 lens, a high shutter speed can be used to minimize blur when shooting moving subjects even in dimly lit locations.
Sample image taken with Olympus TG4 at f2 aperture
The TG-4 boasts the ultimate brightness for a folded optics zoom lens at f/2.0. Lenses created with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including the DSA lens. These features make for a camera with both Tough performance and excellent image quality.
Reliable "Tough" performance
Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, crushproof, and freezeproof -- the TG-4 is a camera that provides excellent image quality in any type of environment imaginable.
Olympus-original technologies such as protective sealing and a double lock mechanism enable waterproof performance down to depths of 15m. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while you snorkel.
The TG-4 dustproof construction features airtight mechanisms that prevent sand and dust from entering the camera.
The TG-4 boasts greater shock-absorbing performance than any Tough camera before, with ability to withstand drops from 2.1m high. Olympus ingenuity has been utilized in every facet, from the lens shape and maintenance method to the frame drive method.
The lens barrel, supports, shutter, and aperture were thoroughly tested and found to be able to withstand loads up to 100 kgf. With its crushproof capabilities, you won't have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera.
Conventional digital cameras are not guaranteed to operate at temperatures that fall below 0℃. The TG-4, however, is guaranteed operation down to -10℃, so you can feel confident using it as you enjoy winter sports.
Features perfect for outdoor photography
The TG-4 is equipped with versatile shooting modes that let you capture high quality images even in challenging situations.
System expandability for a wider realm of shooting
Mountains, rivers, valleys, oceans, mountain climbing, trekking, diving, skiing, snowboarding, and leisure activities. The TG-4 is designed to work as part of a system, making it useful in any rugged environment or in active sports.
GPS + Electronic Compass and Built-in Wi-Fi
The GPS function on the TG-4 is compatible with GLONASS and QZSS. Position accuracy has been further improved. With support for GPS assist data, positioning speed is significantly improved when the GPS assist data information is updated ahead of time using a computer or smartphone.
Logger function for recording the route travelled
Even when not shooting, the TG-4 receives positioning data at specific intervals and records your travelled route. With the computer application Olympus Viewer 3, Google Maps, and the smartphone app Olympus Image Track, you can see your photos along with their location, creating memories of your travels.
The smartphone app Olympus Image Track makes using positioning information more convenient.
The smartphone app Olympus Image Track comes complete with many functions including being able to update GPS assist data via the camera's Wi-Fi capability as well as downloading GPS logs and photos to your smartphone for easy management on a map.
Equipped with a Wi-Fi function for sharing enjoyable memories anytime, anywhere
The TG-4 is equipped with a Wi-Fi function. When linked with the Olympus Image Share smartphone app, images on the camera can be easily transferred to a smartphone via Wi-Fi. Initial settings are no more troublesome with a simple scan of the QR code that is displayed on the camera. The settings can now be completed in just a few steps.
Does not hold up to marketed material Aussieev, 18/05/2016
We own both a TG2 and TG4. If you use it as a standard camera it is ok BUT the cameras do not go close to any of the marketed material with respect to its capability for quality pics underwater and in no way stands up to ANY element of 'go anywhere / tough'. When we had a small issue with the first shock that the camera came to, Olympus customer service spent a great amount of time pointing to a warranty which was substantially different to their marketing campaign and tried to up sell us to more products with no satisfactory fix offered by manufacturer. I subsequently found similar issues for others posted online and wish I had been aware prior. Completely disappointed. do not waste your time.

Best compact camera I have used. cathabout, 28/08/2015
Its a great little camera to have on the go. Easy to carry in a bag or hand whilst walking. Set to silent you can quiet happily click away without annoying those around you. Good quality photos and love having the option of raw for photoshop etc. Downside would love more optical zoom and for its price a lens cap would be great. It lives in my bag and I am forever cleaning the lens before use.
