The future of tough photography is here. GoPro opened the door with it’s durable, water-proof, on-the-go camera and Olympus is upping the ante with it’s newest rugged, durable camera that will take the worry out of life-on-the-go shooting. The new Olympus TG-1 iHS is waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof, crushproof and dustproof and yet still offers the versatility of a compact handheld camera. The Olympus TG-1 iHS combines incredible durability with iHS technology, the world’s first high-speed bright f2.0 lens on a Tough camera and converter-lens compatibility to create a versatile system camera. The combination of durability and outstanding image quality make it possible to shoot in even the harshest conditions so strap this thing to your bike, crash it during a high speed downhill and if you’re still kickin’ the camera will be too. It is only a matter of time til revolutionaries like Robbie Crawford or Alejandro Paz latch on to this product and capture beautiful underwater scenes and aquatic life, snap photos of dusk-lit peaks or record your ride down the rapids in dazzling 1080p Full HD Video.
The Fisheye Converter Lens on the TG-1 captures panoramic, wide-angle shots without sacrificing the brightness of the 4x wide optical zoom (25-100mm*) f2.0 lens.
The Teleconverter Lens extends your optical zoom from 4x to 6.8x, delivering dramatic close-ups with professional-looking background blur. Combined with the Olympus TG-1 iHS’ 8x Super-resolution Zoom, which extends the range of the optical zoom with virtually no loss of image quality, you can reach an unmatched 13.6x magnification.
