This freshly-minted watertight camera claims to be watertight to 15m/50ft, shock-proof from 2.1m/7ft, crushproof into 100kgf/220lbf and dustproof. (In case you’re trying to dip down to depths of 45m, check out the PT-058 underwater home sold separately.)
The TG-5 packs a fresh 1/2.3-inch 12MP BSI CMOS detector, which is a switch from the 1/2.3-inch 16MP BSI CMOS chip applied within the preceding version. Once it drops from 16MP into 12MP, Olympus states this movement helps to improve capture. The lens is very similar to that of this TG 4: it has a 4x zoom lens (equivalent to 25-100mm) that comes with a varying f/2-4.9 aperture, however now also features anti-fog dual-pane glass which prevents the lens from getting foggy when it undergoes climate fluctuations. Videographers will also be delighted to understand it supports 4K recording at Full and 30p HD footage at 120fps. It’s truly the very greatest rocky choice available on the market while the camera does not come cheap.
