Take great photos

Whether you're chilling at the beach, setting off on an adventurous hike, or just making memories with friends – you want a camera that'll really capture the moment. The Olympus TG-5 Tough Compact Camera does just that with its TruePic VIII image processor giving your photos the best resolution possible.

This camera's bright f/2.0 lens means you can always get the most out of whatever condition you're shooting in. Be it bright daylight daylight or a beautiful sunset, you'll always get a great pic. You can even add filters to your photos to get the perfect shareable snapshot.

Tough camera

Built to beat the elements, the TG-5 Tough Compact Camera is water-, shock-, and even freeze-proof. Take it with you on a diving trip and snap all the colourful creatures you'll meet underwater, or record a day out on the snowy ski slopes in glorious 4K. You don't have to worry about dropping it as its durable casing protects against accidents.

When you're shooting in extreme conditions changes in temperatures can lead to a fogged up lens, such as when you leave the chilly mountain for apres-ski in the inviting cabins. The TG-5's dual pane lens makes that problem a thing of the past, so you can keep snapping pics wherever you are.

Shoot videos

Make a mini movie with the Olympus TG-5.  Record videos in stunningly detailed 4K Ultra HD when you're on the move, get a personal clip of a live sporting event in clear detail, or switch to slow motion mode when you're messing around with mates for a video that'll make everyone laugh.

Built-in WiFi

With a built-in WiFi connection, you can easily transfer all your favourite clips and pictures to your PC or smartphone, ready to share on social media. Download the Olympus app to your smartphone and you can even control the camera remotely.

Picture this

The decisive moment, that perfect shot, missed because you were waiting for your camera to be ready to take a photo again. But it's not your camera or your shooting technique – it's all down to having the right memory card.

To prevent that annoying lag when capturing high res images and HD video, opt for a high performance memory card with a fast write speed. Now you can focus on your subject.

Took some great underwater photos while snorkeling in South Pacific. Great in shallow water where there is plenty of light.
Also happy with general photos I took. Just set it to largest file size.
If you set the fish symbol underwater there is a second or two delay before you can take the next photo. But the photos do come out better. Or you could just process them after in photo editing software.
