This new lens strengthens the camera?s shooting capabilities making high-quality images and blazing fast shutter speeds possible even when a flash cannot be used or when shooting fast action or in low light. *December 2012
A powerful, DSLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom.
LOW LIGHT PERFORMANCE
Thanks to iHS technology high ISOs and quick shutter speeds, you'll achieve ideal results in low light situations whether you're shooting in a dim room, outdoors at dusk, or around the campfire.
From quick start up times, to ultra fast shot-to-shot intervals and blazing autofocus, the camera is always read to go when the action kicks in.
HIGH-SPEED SEQUENTIAL SHOOTING
Shoot like a pro. With high-speed burst shooting, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence at the touch of a button.
TRUEPIC VI IMAGE PROCESSOR
A TruePic VI Image Processor, first developed for professional SLRs, knows precisely how to deliver true-to-life color, the sharpest details, and less noise.
ISO RANGE 100-6400
Enjoy excellent dynamic range, vibrant color reproduction and reduced noise with an ISO range of 100 to 6400.
Hand-Held Starlight with Flash automatically snaps several images and then stitches them together into a single, blur-free image with minimal noise resulting in stunning low light images.
Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.
APERTURE PRIORITY MODE
For added flexibility and creative control, Aperture Priority Mode allows you to manually adjust the aperture for optimal results. Simply set the mode dial to "A", to make adjustments.
MICROSCOPIC MACRO MODE
Check out every minute detail of your subjects by employing Microscopic Macro Zoom. Combining the optical zoom and super resolution zoom, macro shooting factors equal to 7 to 14x (35mm conversion) are possible from a distace of 1 cm. Capture every nook and cranny with stunning clarity to bring you even closer to the microscopic world around us!
Lens accessories that take functionality to a whole new level. With accessory lenses like a wide-angle fisheye and a 1.7x teleconverter, your photographic possibilities are truly endless.
HDMI OUTPUT & CONTROL
HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a breeze
MULTI-MOTION MOVIE IS
The newly-developed image stabilization technique helps to reduce camera blur caused by walking or breathing when shooting videos...
LINEAR PCM RECORDING
Linear PCM Recording, an audio technology pioneered by Olympus for professional voice recorders, records your videos with high-definition audio for optimal playback results.
WATERPROOF TO 50FT/15M
The TG-2 iHS crushes the notion that cameras are easily damaged by water and humidity. The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus' long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-2 iHS is completely waterproof down to a new depth of 50ft. Even on land, the TG-2 iHS ensures that you?ll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.
SHOCKPROOF TO 6.8FT/2.1M
The shockproof structure of the TG-2 iHS ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.
CRUSHPROOF TO 220LBF/100KGF
No case, no problem! With a rugged body and reinforced LCD, the TG-2 iHS withstands up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.
FREEZEPROOF TO 14?F/-10?C
Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-2 iHS is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-2 iHS by your side, you?ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.
Don't let a little wind and dust ruin your plans ? or your camera! Take photos confidently in the driest conditions without worrying about destructive dirt and dust.
GPS & e.COMPASS
The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-2 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-2 iHS is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Google Earth and Picasa.
Mark your spot on the map with the built-in manometer. Records elevation & water depth and even displays a warning when the user approaches a depth of 50ft.
WATER-REPELLENT LENS COATING
Splash after splash, never worry about water droplets obstructing your images thanks to the water-repellent lens coating that prevents water from remaining on the lens surface. And because it?s applied to the OLED monitor as well, composing shots in the rain or while riding the waves will be a breeze.
With all the care that is put in to protecting the inner workings of your camera, it would be a shame for the system to fail because the battery door opens unintentionally. Thanks to the multi-directional, double-lock mechanism, your camera is protected from accidental openings under water.
An LED Illuminator is like a mini-flashlight on the front of the camera to enhance focus and exposure for macro shooting. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.
DUAL IMAGE STABILIZATION
Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.
ENHANCED INTELLIGENT AUTO
Automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - up to 30 different scene including Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro or Sports - and adjusts the settings for ideal results.
34 SCENE MODES
Select from scene modes like Beach & Snow, Night Scene, Sport and Landscape and the camera automatically adjusts the settings for optimal results.
ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY
Automatically compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and lowlight areas resulting in more uniform exposure across the image. When used together with iAuto or Face Detection, the subject's face is shot with optimal exposure settings so that the face can be recorded clearly even under strong back light conditions. The TruePic VI image processor further reduces noise in the shadowy areas allowing for even better backlight adjustment.
Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!
Look like a star! Let the camera soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject's face with Beauty Mode. Or, digitally apply enhancements to your portraits like eyeshadow, whitening teeth and lifting cheek bones with Beauty Make-Up mode.
