Further advanced image quality and Tough performance
The Olympus TG-5 is equipped with the latest image sensor and image processor, and a bright f/2.0 high-resolution lens for high image quality. Its Tough performance and anti-fog dual-pane protective glass make for worry-free use in the harshest environments.

High-resolution f/2.0 lens
The Olympus TG-5 features both Tough performance and high image quality, along with a high-resolution, 4x optical zoom lens. The bright f/2.0 lens makes it possible to use a fast shutter speed to reduce subject blur even when capturing moving subjects in dark locations.

Folded optics zoom lens
This model achieves the brightest aperture value, f/2.0, for a folded optics type lens. Lenses developed with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens for high image quality.

Bright 4x zoom lens
The Olympus TG-5 is equipped with a 4x optical zoom lens. The lens provides a broad range of photography, from a wide-angle bird's-eye view of scenic landscapes to zoomed-in telephoto close-ups of distant subjects.

New image sensor and image processor
To maximise the capabilities of the high-resolution f/2.0 lens, a new high-speed back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and the TruePic VIII image processor used on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II are included on this model. Noise level has been reduced by 1 step for shooting in the standard ISO sensitivity range and also for shooting in darker areas. These improvements result in even higher image quality.

Image processing that delivers high resolution
The image processing algorithms have been retooled to deliver even higher resolution on the Olympus TG-5. They have been modified to provide high resolution for sections with a low difference in contrast particularly when using a low ISO sensitivity setting.

Improved high-sensitivity performance
Maximum ISO sensitivity is now ISO 12800.

RAW photography
The Olympus TG-5 allows shooting in RAW format. RAW images can be edited and processed on a computer using the digital workflow software Olympus Viewer 3. Adjust the contrast and sharpness after shooting to achieve the exact results you have in mind.

Tough performance
In addition to being dustproof, waterproof up to 15m deep, shockproof up to a 2.1M drop, crushproof up to 100 kgf, and freezeproof down to -10°C, the Olympus TG-5 has anti-fog dual pane protective glass. Such Tough performance[1] provides peace of mind when shooting in punishing environments such as the mountains, ocean, and snow.
