Olympus Tough TG-4 Review

Just like an all-terrain vehicle is suited for a wide range of adventures, the Olympus Tough TG-4 is the perfect camera in extreme situations, where generic compact devices would let you down. Some prefer shooting portraits, while others settle for tame landscapes, but if you’re more of an adventurous individual, then the TG-4 needs to be in your backpack. The price tag is surprisingly affordable, and considering what you’re getting for the money, you shouldn’t have too many second thoughts when it comes to making such a purchase. 

 

Olympus didn’t just choose a fancy name for the Tough TG-4 camera; the gadget is actually much tougher than one would expect. The greatest fear many people have these days is dropping their phones or cameras, but this shouldn’t be worrying with the TG-4, given that it’s shockproof up to 2.1m falls. It’s also crushproof, so it will be able to withstand up to 100 kgf of pressure without any issues at all. This would already be a promising design, but Olympus did even more to perfect their camera. The TG-4 is also freeze-proof so you can take it out at -10 degrees Celsius and it would function flawlessly. What about being waterproof? The camera works without problems underwater, and you can dive even 15 meters underwater to take some unique photos. It’s also worth mentioning that the camera is also dustproof.

 

The lens of the Olympus Tough TG-4 has 4x optical zoom, and its f/2.0-4.9 specifications make it suited not just for telephoto, but also for wide-angle shots. When it comes to such a heavy-duty camera, you are right to worry about shaky hands in extreme conditions, but the image stabilization feature will ensure your photos will be crisp and clear. The camera can shoot the classic JPG photos, but if you’re looking for post-processing capabilities, just switch to the RAW format. Live Composite is an added feature that creates perfectly exposed images using several shots that you’ve already taken. 

 

Shooting underwater, although an interesting experience, might be tricky because of uneven light conditions. This is where the Underwater HDR mode of the Olympus Tough TG-4 steps in, together with several other shooting modes. Thanks to these special modes, you can take high quality photos of underwater scenes, even if you don’t break the bank when purchasing the camera. Aside from these, you can also record 1080p videos. High-speed recording is available, with frame rates of up to 240 fps. 

 

Thankfully, the Olympus Tough TG-4 also comes with built-in Wi-Fi, so transferring your photos to another device is a matter of seconds. The Image Share app from Olympus also provides increased flexibility in using the camera, as you can control its functions through your smartphone. The GPS module is just the cherry on top, making geotagging easier than ever before. Thanks to all of these features, the Tough TG-4 camera from Olympus is a complete compact camera that should be part of any future holiday you’re planning, regardless of the environment.

    Heavy-duty design, built-in Wi-Fi and GPS
