BUILT FOR ADVENTURE
You live for the outdoors. Hiking steep mountain trails. Backpacking through a desert canyon. Skiing in the wilderness. The Tough TG-6 is ready for adventure. It’s built to endure all the extreme environments you love exploring. You can drop it. Step on it. Go deep underwater or out into a freezing blizzard. It just keeps on shooting awesome stills and video. Packed with pro features, you’ll nail difficult shots — even in low light. Shoot intricately detailed macro photos and unique shots underwater with vivid color. The lightweight, compact Tough TG-6. Engineered to survive the world’s toughest places.
High-Speed F2.0 Wide Angle Lens
20 Frames Per Second Sequential Shooting
50FT Waterproof Performance (15m)
Bad things happen to good cameras. That’s why the Tough TG-6 is fully equipped to handle extreme conditions and keep shooting.
Don’t sweat if temperatures suddenly change. An anti-fogging design prevents condensation from forming inside the lenses so you’ll always be ready to shoot.
Add an extra layer of protection to your TG-6 with the optional lens barrier. It keeps the lens surface free of dirt and prevents scratching.
The Tough TG-6’s super-fast lens captures bright, richly detailed images even in low light settings.
Shoot sharp stills and video from astonishing distances with a 4x optical zoom and 2x Digital Teleconverter that achieves a maximum 8x zoom.
Save your images in RAW format to make post-production processing easier.
ACTION TRACK SENSORS
Field data like location, temperature and altitude can be recorded and viewed in real time. Sync your data to photos and video to relive your adventures in an exciting new way.
Shoot the near impossible. Pro Capture effortlessly takes razor sharp stills of split second action with the press of a button. Never miss a critical shot again.
4K ULTRA HD VIDEO
Use 4K Ultra HD Video to shoot scenery like mountains, waterfalls and forests in extreme high resolution that delivers spectacular, lifelike detail and vibrant color.
