Thanks to a system of seals and double lock construction, water, dust, dirt, snow and cold stay outside where they belong.

It’s happened to practically everyone with a camera. You go from air conditioning to high humidity and suddenly there’s condensation all over the lens. That won’t happen with the Tough TG-6. The lens features hermetically sealed, dual pane protective glass to prevent fogging. Your lens stays clear and ready for action.
The Tough TG-6 features a high-speed, bright F2.0 wide angle lens. Use the optional LB-T01 Lens Barrier to keep dirt and dust off the lens and prevent scratching. Open and close the barrier with a quick turn — even with gloves.
A SYSTEM BUILT AROUND A CAMERA
The Tough TG-6 sits at the center of an expansive accessory system. The Sports Holder lets you shoot while the camera is secured to you. The Float Strap stops your camera from sinking while shooting on the water. The Silicone Jacket keeps the Tough TG-6 from getting scratched and lets you firmly grip the body. That’s just a few of many accessories designed to help you get the best performance from your camera.
HANDLES THE TOUGHEST BUSINESS
If you’re shooting in tough work conditions, we have the camera for you.

Besides being nearly indestructible, the Tough TG-6 features GPS so you’ll have an accurate record of where your shots were taken. The Date Imprint feature stamps your photos with the date and time for easy cataloging.

TRUEPIC™ VIII Our Dual Quad Core
TruePic VIII Image Processor ensures all your stills and video have rich, true-to-life color. The same technology is used in our pro cameras to ensure world-class image quality.
If you plan on importing your images into photo editing software like Olympus Workspace, the Tough TG-6 lets you save in RAW format. It makes processing is easier and helps you bring your creative vision to life.

Get closer to your subject without moving. The Tough TG-6 is equipped with an impressive 4x optical zoom equivalent to 100mm. Adding our new 2x Digital Teleconverter doubles it to 8x or 200mm. You’re able to capture beautifully detailed stills and crisp video from far away.
Anti-Reflective or AR coating means sharper images. Applied to the image sensor’s sealing glass, our advanced AR coating minimizes ghosts and flares.
ACTION TRACK SENSORS
While you’re out shooting still and video, use the TG-6’s Action Track Sensors that use the built-in GPS, thermometer, manometer (barometer) and compass to record environmental data. Captured data like location, temperature, and altitude or water depth can be viewed in real time or in post-production. Use the free Olympus Image Track app to sync Action Track data with your photos and video on a smartphone. It creates an immersive, exciting viewing experience that lets you tell better stories about your adventures.

Let’s say you want to take a photo of a fish at the exact second it leaps out of the water. Pro Capture Mode ensures you get those near impossible shots. Just press the shutter button halfway to start buffering a running series of full resolution images. Then fully depress the shutter to capture that moment’s image plus the previous five frames. One button press gives you six images. You can even reel off a breathtaking 10 fps to capture fast moving action.
4K ULTRA HD VIDEO

If you love macro photography, you’ll enjoy this camera. The built-in Microscope Mode features magnified shooting as close as 1cm from the front of your lens. You can get up close in great detail to the worlds beyond.
FOUR MACRO MODES
Macro photography is the art of capturing the unseen. The Tough TG-6 features four macro modes to produce artistic, richly detailed images. Two modes let you use the camera like a microscope by focusing as close as 1cm while achieving a maximum display magnification of 44.4x. You’ll capture with striking clarity what the naked eye can’t see — the outline of a snowflake or water droplets balanced on a tiny leaf. Focus Stacking and Bracketing modes shoot images of insects and other tiny objects with dramatic depth of field.
UNDERWATER MICROSCOPE MODE
We’re making underwater macro photography effortless. Our Underwater Macro Mode is ideal for close-ups of small fish, coral or plant life. Capture extreme close-ups using the Underwater Microscope Mode. Get as close as 1cm from the end of your lens for macro shots nothing short of spectacular.
