Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS 12 Megapixel Compact Camera - Black



The most sophisticated rugged point-and-shoot on the market, the Olympus TG-2 iHS was designed with the serious photographer in mind.

But don't be fooled, this camera's not only for the avid scuba diver, it's for active photographers who won't sacrifice image quality and performance. The TG-2 iHS is the only rugged camera on the market equipped with an ultra-bright, high-speed f2.0 lens*, allowing you to capture dramatic low light and high-speed action shots.

  • Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS - Impressive

    Pros Include: Unbeatable "Tough" Specifications (waterproof, dust-proof, drop-proof, freeze-proof), although I have not confirmed performance Photo capture speed (time between consecutive photos) is impressive for a point & shoot 2.0 Aperture & Aperture Priority Dial Setting is a great addition; allows for great low-light performance Macro mode is awesome; can get grainy in some conditions but overall an impressive feature HD Video: considering the size and durability of the camera, to have HD video along with slow-motion options is just too cool; as long as you're not expecting SLR/pro-level results you'll be extremely satisfied. Tap-Mode: If you're wearing gloves this is a priceless feature!! Looks: Unlike some of the other life-proof cameras out there this one actually looks and feels tough; nice job Olympus Good but not Great: Photo Quality is good but not great; you'll find more details in online reviews; again, if you don't expect SLR-quality photos you'll be extremely satisfied 4x Zoom; I would appreciate a faster and longer zoom, but again, you're sacrificing some things for intense durability The Aperture Priority setting allows you to jump between 2.0, 2.8 and 8.0, not the full f-stop range you'd find on a manual camera, but still very useful Shutter Speed: Good, but not as fast as other rugged P&S; not a deal-killer and not as necessary with the higher aperture but should be improved on future models A Few (mostly inconsequential) Cons: Price - granted I purchased new and shortly after release, if you don't need the wide 2.0 aperture there are cheaper options available, also the optional telephoto and fish-eye lenses are costly; I doubt I'll invest in these. The lens ring on the outside (which is removable to allow mounting of optional lenses) does come loose pretty easily; you don't need it for the camera to function, but I would definitely make this more secure on future models I would have appreciated a black (not red) wrist lanyard and something that was a bit more "tough" to match the camera specs, I ended up buying a standard black, adjustable wrist-strap. Noise and slow focus during video; again Overall - I was debating between this camera and a more pro-level compact P&S as my every-day-carry camera. The manual features of the pro-compacts are great, but for the money, I was not impressed enough with the performance and results; they were either too expensive, too big, too slow, or just not high enough quality to justify the cost. I decided that I can grab my SLR when I wanted to take pro-shots and that having a P&S that could take a serious beating and still take great photos in various conditions was a better option for me. This may not be everyone's conclusion, and an SLR-user will definitely enjoy the pro-compact features, but I am someone who is very hard on anything electronic and wanted something small enough to carry anywhere and tough enough to withstand the elements and my own clumsiness; the Tough TG-2 fit the bill nicely and I am happy with the purchase.
