Olympus TG-6 Camera, Housing & Kraken 1500 Light Package
Olympus TG-6 Camera, PT-059 Underwater Housing & Kraken 1500 WSR Light Package
This compact and lightweight package is great for travel and contains everything you need to take the Olympus TG-6 camera diving. It includes the Olympus TG-6 camera, PT-059 underwater housing and a small Kraken 1500 light with white, spot and red functions and even shuts off automatically when you fire the camera flash!
The Olympus TG 6 camera 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.
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!
Kraken Hydra 1500 - Wide, Spot, Red Focus Light with Auto Off-On
This new Kraken Hydra 1500 lumen light is part of the new line up from Kraken Sports. It has a lighted push button that switches between a wide 100° flood beam, a red focus beam, and a spot beam for use as a dive light. The button has a lighted battery strength indicator light. It has an 85 min run-time on high.
It also has an added Auto Flash Off feature. So when using it as a focus light it will automatically turn off when your strobe fires (if you want it to). It includes a YS mount.
This light is also a favorite of many macro shooters for the ability to use it for back and side lighting and having both flood, and spot beams built in to one light.
The Kraken Hydra lights come in a complete set that includes YS style mount, charger and a carrying case.
We've also included a Kraken YS mount for the light that locks onto the coldshoe mount of the housing.
