The red Tough TG-2 iHS Digital Camera from Olympus is their flagship "tough" point-and-shoot digital camera with a 12MP sensor, a fast f/2.0 zoom lens and waterproof, shockproof, crush-proof and freeze-proof capabilities. The 12MP Back Side Illuminated CMOS sensor combined with the powerful TruePic VI Image Processor provide detailed, true-color images and fast performance speeds. Full HD 1080p video capture with a dedicated one-touch button and HDMI output is supported by the TG-2 iHS and high-speed 720p HD recording is possible at 120 frames per second with slow-motion playback. You can also simultaneously shoot photos while you record video.
The TG-2 iHS is built tough to withstand the elements and the drops that might otherwise damage a compact camera. It can shoot underwater to a depth of 50' (15 m) and with two protective frames it is shock-proof to a drop of 6.9' (2.1 m) and crush-proof up to 220 lbf (100 kgf). It's able to shoot and maintain all functions in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C) and a protective seal keeps it sand- and dust-proof. Both the lens and the OLED screen have coatings to prevent scratching and to keep rain and condensation from obscuring your view. A double-lock battery door prevents accidental openings, vital when underwater. The TG-2 is particularly apt for shooting while diving as it has four shooting modes designed to automatically capture underwater light and color balance.
The lens on the TG-2 iHS is a 4x optical zoom that provides the focal length equivalency of 25-100mm (wide angle to telephoto) in the 35mm format. The maximum aperture at the wide-angle end is f/2.0 which makes it ideal for capturing clear images in low light. A Digital Zoom function is also available to double the telephoto reach if necessary and a macro mode is supported for extreme close-ups. Dual Image Stabilization offers sharper images by reducing the blurring effects of camera shake. And fast burst shooting is supported at 5fps (frames per second) in full resolution and up to 60fps in lower resolutions.
A 3.0" OLED screen with a water-repellent coating provides composition and playback and numerous assistive features make it easy to get the best shot possible. Enhanced Intelligent Auto will make all camera adjustments to capture your images with the optimal settings and Scene Modes allow you to match the camera's settings to the scene you are shooting, whether it be Sports, Snow, or Night Portrait. One-touch Panorama is supported and Face Detection recognizes when you are shooting people in order to optimize exposure on their faces for sharp, well-lit portraits. Creative Art Filters, such as Watercolor, Fisheye and Miniature are available to add special effects to your images and Beauty Mode lets you smooth out wrinkles, whiten teeth and add make-up touches.
The TG-2 iHS also features GPS, e.compass and manometer functions to log the route taken while shooting and to provide location, landmark, elevation and depth information which can be recorded along with the compatible image.
