Olympus TG-6 Camera & PT-59 Underwater Housing Bundle
Olympus TG6 Tough Camera with PT-059 Underwater Housing
A great package that is ready for diving! This bundle features the Olympus Tough TG-6 camera and the Olympus PT-059 underwater housing which is rated to a depth of 145' (45 meters).
Olympus TG6 Digital "Tough" Camera
The Olympus TG 6 is rated to 50' without a housing! Great new HD LCD screen allows for optimal viewing and playback and three underwater specfic white balance modes (shallow, mid-range & deep) improves red & blue tones of images. The new flagship of Olympus’ ultra-rugged TOUGH range is ideal for anyone with a passion for outdoor sports and adventure and high-quality photographs. Its super-bright, large-aperture lens makes first-class shots possible even in poor light. The 1:2.0-4.9 wide, high-speed 25-100mm* 4x optical zoom with new 2x digital teleconverter unit feeds the same TruePic VIII image processor found in Olympus’ high-end OM-D E-M1 MKII interchangeable lens camera.
Use Pro Capture Mode to nail perfect shots that require split second timing. It buffers a running series of high-resolution images, then captures a precise moment plus the previous 5 frames with a single button press.
Also featuring four-mode Super Macro system gives nature enthusiasts the potential to capture startling close-ups in a detail and quality that makes sharing a must. Uploading is instant and easy via WiFi and a smartphone. The TOUGH TG-6 caters to its most creative owners with specialist converter lenses and macro accessories. For the most adventurous, it comes in a virtually indestructible, trademark TOUGH body. The TOUGH TG-6 is available in black or red.
One glance at the new camera’s riveted casing cements the TOUGH reputation for excellent build quality. It is shockproof to a height of 2.1 meters, crushproof to a weight of 100kg, freezeproof down to -10°C, dustproof and waterproof to a depth of 15m without a special underwater housing.
TG-6 captures lifelike images with an unmatched combination of features.
The new HD LCD screen now has a 1.04 million dot resolution to provide high quality viewing and playback of your images. Olympus’ advanced 12 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor with new anti-reflective coating minimizes ghosts and flares. The TruePic VIII Image Processor will allow you capture the smallest details and the brightest colors of every exciting moment. With the ability to shoot in RAW, you will have the highest possible resolution and maximum creative control. Now with 2x digital teleconverter added to the 4x optical zoom, you can shoot sharp stills and video from astonishing distances with a maximum of 8x zoom.
The TOUGH TG-6’s reassuring body protects some world-class imaging technology.
For example, the first-ever macro mode to feature four settings in one. Advanced super Macro Mode comprises Microscope Mode, Microscope control Mode, Focus Stacking Mode and Focus Bracketing Mode.
Microscope Mode lets you magnify a subject more than 40x from as close as 1cm. So if it measures just 1mm in reality it can impressively appear as large as 44.4mm on the LCD. Focus Stacking Mode counteracts unintentional bokeh caused by a shallow depth of field. It automatically shoots multiple shots of a macro subject with different parts in focus, then merges them to a crisply focused image of publishable quality. The upshot is maximum creativity without a computer –which is just what you need when you’re miles from home.
One of the key disadvantages of smartphone cameras and strap-on camcorders is the limitation of storage for high-resolution images. Not to mention the lack of creative accessories that tends to result in generic shots with low-quality. One of the great advantages of Olympus’ TOUGH TG-6 is the pristine image quality it delivers, even in low light, plus compatibility with converters and macro accessories that let you shoot with a range of spectacular styles and effects.
PT-059 Underwater Housing
The ultra-rugged TG-6 is waterproof up to 50 feet (15 meters), but if you’re a serious diver with a desire to capture beautiful images from your underwater adventures, you should check out the PT-059 underwater housing.
The PT-059 housing for the TG-6 camera is a durable, high-quality polycarbonate casing that extends the TG-6’s waterproofing to 147 feet (45 meters) while providing an extra measure of protection from rough handling. Designed to give you complete control of all camera functions, the PT-059 also features a screw mount for filters and converter lenses that expand your options for macro and wide-angle shooting; an optical connection for an external underwater flash; and multi-coated glass to reduce reflections. Now if only you could get that sting ray to smile for the camera!
