Whether you go for coral reefs, wrecks or the marine life. With the TOUGH TG-4 at your side, you have a waterproof digital camera that performs to the highest level even in the depths of the ocean. Featuring a super-bright maximum aperture of 1:2.0 the high-speed lens delivers breathtaking shots of your diving or snorkelling adventures, with brilliant colours and bright seascapes.
The TG-4 is ready for any outdoor challenge: rugged mountain terrain in sub-zero temperatures, heavy rainshowers, snow and sand storms, dark and rough forests. The clever system of seals means the TG-4 functions in the most extreme conditions around the world.
The TOUGH TG-4 has the power to capture all that nature has to offer. Use any one of the four macro shooting modes, e.g. the unique focus stacking mode, to express your creativity. Get super close to insects, flowers, snowflakes and capture them in clear, microscopic style.
Survive the environment
Capture memories just as easily in the harshest places as you do at home. The TG-4 can shoot underwater with 15m WATERPROOFNESS or on the ski slopes with FREEZEPROOFNESS of -10C. It can survive a drop of 2.1m and is crushproof to 100kg.
Get a wider view of the world.
When you are in the middle of nature, you do not always have the chance to set the scene. But with the TG-4s 4x wide optical zoom, you do not need to. Combined with high-speed autofocus performance, it lets you zoom from 25 to 100mm (equivalent to a 35mm camera) and capture amazingly clear shots from a distance. Or be more creative with natures spectacular wide views.
Shoot and share instantly.
Now its easier than ever to share your adventures – from any mountain top or valley. Thanks to the TG-4s built-in Wi-Fi and OI.Share capability. Regardless of where you are, you can wirelessly transfer photos to your smartphone or tablet. Or use your mobile device as a remote for controlling the TG-4s settings and shooting.
Track your world adventures.
Next-generation GPS gives you fast, accurate tracking results with every shot. If you want to know where you are even when the camera is turned off, use the e.Compass feature – also giving you pressure and altitude info. By installing the OI.Track app on your smartphone, you can add the GPS data to your photos when sharing.
