Digital Camera Description

The Olympus Tough TG-5 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 12 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 100-1600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 100-12800. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 12 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Olympus Tough TG-5 to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 1/2. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.

Olympus Tough TG-5

The Olympus Tough TG-5 features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame.

The Olympus Tough TG-5 is waterproof to a 15 meter depth. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Olympus Tough TG-5 and no provision to add one.
