The Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker 4K Action Cam: the new-generation action camera for adventure and sport life-logging. Not just video.
The TG-Tracker is the latest member of the popular Olympus Tough family of ruggedised compact cameras. It introduces a new way to re-live adventure experiences by combining video with positional and environmental data logs. The Field Sensor System simultaneously records GPS, compass, barometer (altitude/depth), accelerometer and thermometer data to provide an enhanced movie-plus-data playback* experience in Full HD resolution on your smartphone or tablet. The TG-Tracker can also be used as a pure data recorder in its log-only mode.
With an extreme-wide angle lens that has an impressive 204-degree diagonal viewing, the TG-Tracker helps you capture high-definition movies that are vividly immersive. The immense wide angle coverage of this lens enhances the realism of your POV recordings, showing you details that other action cameras may miss.
Used airborne, on land or in the ocean, the TG-Tracker is a camera truly designed for the rugged outdoors. It is shockproof – withstands drops of up to 2.1m, crush-proof to 100 kgf, freeze-proof to -10 degrees Celsius, and water- proof to a depth of 30m without the need for an accessory housing.
The new TG-Tracker is equipped with an Underwater Detector that activates automatic optimisation of white balance and camera settings when the camera is used at a water-depth of 0.5m or deeper. For extended outdoor operation, it uses a replaceable slim Li-ion battery that can be easily exchanged in the field. With an outstanding battery life for 4K movie recording of up to 90 minutes, the TG-Tracker can also be directly powered from its USB port via the supplied charger when a constant power supply is available.

Field Sensor System*1 for capturing all states and movements of outdoor sports
For outdoor data-logging the new Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker is equipped with a Field Sensor System*1 that includes GPS*2, barometer, temperature sensor, compass and acceleration sensors, which all contribute to recording tracking log information. To view the information captured via the sensors, users can select from three different options: compass display, level display, or log display (altitude/depth).
Advanced five main Tough capabilities
The TG-Tracker is waterproof*3 up to a depth of 30m. Its waterproof sealing enables excellent dustproof*4 performance for shooting when shooting in desert or sandy environments. The dual-layer chassis structure makes for superb shockproof*5 performance, allowing the camera to survive drops from heights of up to 2.1m. Operation is guaranteed to -10°C*6 so you never have to worry about shooting in the mountains and cold-weather locations where other digital devices fear to tread. This model also has a rigid construction that can withstand loads up to 100 kgf*7.
High-quality images captured with the 204° diagonal angle of view ultra wide-angle lens
This 204° diagonal angle of view, compact, ultra wide-angle lens was developed using optical technology accumulated over many years. The angle of view is far wider than which can be captured by the human eye, letting you capture never-before-seen scenery in excellent image quality. This design is sure to be useful in making new, unthought-of discoveries and recording wide-angled views of sports scenes.
TruePic VII for 4K image processor and back-lit CMOS sensor*11
This camera is equipped with the TruePic VII for 4K, based on the TruePic VII image processor used on the Olympus PEN and OM-D Compact System Cameras with added 4K movie compatibility. It quickly processes data from the high-sensitivity, low-noise back-lit CMOS sensor to produce high-quality images.
Versatile shooting style and superb controls
Its compact body size provides stress-free shooting, including low angle and high angles. The SG-T01*12 Steady Grip is also bundled to assist with stable framing during hand-held shooting. The MC-T01*13 Mount Coupling comes with a small mirror on the front to assist in capturing wide-angle group selfies. A high-intensity headlight*14 is built in to the camera body for shooting support in low light conditions. When the camera is powered off, you use the LED as a standalone flash/torch light.
Phone app (iOS & Android)
The Stylus TG-Tracker is equipped with built-in Wi-Fi*15, and when combined with a smartphone using the Olympus Image Track smartphone app, movies recorded on the camera along with their tracking info can easily be imported to the smartphone. You can also simultaneously display the log data while viewing images for enjoying a live sensation of the shooting environment during playback. Log display can be switched between geographical information and altitude/depth information to best match the scene. The TG Tracker recorded log data can be transferred to your smartphone and can be viewed any time using Olympus Image Track, allowing you to check details to calculate speed and distance travelled.

The computer app A- GPS Utility software or the smartphone app Olympus Image Track is required to update the GPS assist data. *3 Waterproof functionality is equivalent to JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) (according to tests performed under Olympus in-house methods). *4 Equivalent to JIS/IEC protection class 6 (IP6X) (according to tests performed under Olympus in-house methods). *5 When the LCD monitor is closed, Lens Protector is attached, without Mount Coupling, grip, nor underwater protector (according to tests performed under our in-house methods). *6 The number of shots that can be recorded is reduced. *7 Kilogram-force (kgf) is the unit for measuring force exerted on an object. *8 When shooting underwater, the bundled Underwater Protector UP-T01 is required. Without it, the camera will be unable to focus underwater *9 Available only in Log Mode. *10 A video chapter can also be manually inserted by pressing the OK button on the top of the camera during recording. *11 4K movies cannot be transferred to a smart device. Please view them on a large TV that supports 4K movie playback. *12 Because the TG-Tracker's angle of view is a diagonal 204°, part of the tripod will appear in monitor when connected directly to the tripod. This can be prevented by using the tripod base plate on the bottom of the Steady Grip *13 The Mount Coupling is a part that attaches to the top of the Steady Grip for mounting on the camera. *14 The amount of time the light can be used is limited. *15 "Wi-Fi" is a registered trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance.
