Olympus TG-4 Red Digital Compact Camera
Introducing the Stylus TG-4 Tough, the pinnacle of the Tough series. It is equipped with a variety of features that perfectly capture the most amazing moments in any environment, including a bright f/2.0 lens, Microscope Mode, a variety of underwater modes, and GPS. New accessories that expand your photographic field have also been introduced, including a converter lens and Sport Holder. This is a must-have camera for those who enjoy outdoor sports such as diving, mountain climbing, and hiking. In the mountains, by the ocean, in rocky terrain or the snow - the Stylus Tough series can endure and perform in any environment. Among other models, the TG-4 comes out on top with its bright f/2.0 lens. On the previous models, it was difficult to capture beautiful underwater photos without making full and detailed adjustments to camera settings. On the TG-4, Underwater Mode is added on the mode dial. Simply select from five different underwater settings to match the scene for beautiful underwater photos. Underwater Snapshot This mode is perfect for capturing snapshots of friends or other subjects under the surface of the water in a pool or while snorkeling in shallow water. The settings for each parameter are optimised so that the images are naturally reproduced even in shallow, bright waters. Underwater Wide (1 & 2) Underwater Wide 1 mode is used for normal wide-angle underwater shooting. This mode optimises all settings, including the flash, autofocus, and white balance. All you need to do is to simply point the camera toward the subject and release the shutter. Beautiful wide-angle underwater shots are available for you. Underwater Wide 2 mode disables the built-in flash to shoot with natural light only. This mode is good when you don't want to scare off underwater animals with the flash and in other underwater environments where the flash reflects off floating matter in the water, resulting in a noisy image. Because the preview screen is not displayed after each shot, you can continue shooting the dolphins or manta rays, so you don't miss the perfect moment. Underwater Macro This mode fine tunes settings for optimal close-up shooting of small subjects such as shrimp or gobies. Unlike on land, water, which carries various floating matter, flows between the camera and the subject, causing your photos to get cloudy. Also, reds especially tend to be absorbed by water, giving a bluish cast to shots. To counteract such obstacles of underwater photography, the flash is turned on when Underwater Macro is set. In order to get the most out of your flash, move up close to the subject, and let Underwater Macro help you in taking the perfect shot. Underwater HDR In this mode, the white balance is optimised for underwater shooting, and to dramatically recreate overly bright sections and dark shadows, the exposure is changed for each shot, and the shots are then merged to form a single image with a wide dynamic range. Live Composite The bright sections from multiple, sequentially shot images are extracted, and composited to form a single image. You can capture beautiful shots of city lights, stars, and light trails without having to perform any difficult operations. Microscope Mode When set to Microscope mode, the camera can capture subjects as close as 1cm. By combining the optical zoom and super resolution zoom or digital zoom, you can achieve surprising close-up photography as if you are viewing the subject through a microscope. Microscope Control mode Microscope Control mode screen (Microscope Control mode icons appear at top of screen) Microscope Control mode lets you switch magnification as if changing the objective lens of a microscope. On the rear display, you can confirm the magnification factor based on your subject being 1cm away, and use the arrow pad to change the magnification factor in steps from 1x to 2x and 4x. Also, just as in Super macro mode, the display magnification factor can be changed to a maximum of 44.4x with the zoom lever. (Optical zoom, Super Resolution zoom, and digital zoom are all used together.) Focus Stacking mode Focus Stacking mode merges differing degrees of depth of field so that the entire scene is in focus from the foreground to the background. The finished image is of high quality, perfect for prints. Focus Bracketing mode In macro shooting, results change drastically depending on where the focal point is placed. In Focus bracketing mode, the focal location is shifted slightly with each shot for up to 30 shots. This feature is convenient for when you're not sure where to focus. The amount of focal shift can be selected from three different options. Highly Accurate GPS function The GPS function on the TG-4 is compatible with GLONASS and QZSS for improved positioning accuracy. With support for GPS assist data, positioning speed is significantly improved by updating the GPS ahead of time using a computer or smartphone. Logger function for recording the route travelled Even when not shooting, the TG-4 receives positioning data at specific intervals and records your travelled route. With the computer application Olympus Viewer 3, Google Maps, and the smartphone app Olympus Image Track, you can see your photos along with their location, creating memories of your travels. Custom Mode Two custom modes (C1, C2) are available on the mode dial so you can save your favourite settings. These modes let you quickly activate special settings so you can get the photos the way you envision them without having to adjust individual settings. Raw processing The TG-4 can output unprocessed raw data of recorded images. Raw images can then be processed using the Olympus Viewer 3 software that comes with the camera. This feature is recommended for the creative individual who wants to fully control the contrast and sharpness, among other aspects of the image, so it perfectly matches one's vision. Art Filter The TG-4 is equipped with Olympus's renowned Art Filters to expand your artistic expression in both photos and movies. Picture Mode The TG-4 is equipped with a Picture Mode that allows more photographic fun. Various effects transform your photos into unique pieces of work. Interval Shooting and Time Lapse Movie The TG-4 features the Interval Shooting function, which lets you shoot from one second up to 24 hours (max. 99 frames). This feature can capture landscapes in dramatic motion. Additionally, a maximum 10-second Time Lapse Movie can be created from still images captured with Interval Shooting. Multiple Aspect Ratios Aspect ratio can be selected from 4 types: 16:9, 3:2, 4:3 or 1:1.
