Capture the action in high image quality

Whether in the mountains, by the ocean, in rocky terrain or the snow, the Stylus Tough series is at home in the most brutal environments. Among other models, the TG-4 comes out on top with features such as the bright f/2.0 lens.

Bright f/2.0 lens

With a bright f/2.0 lens, a high shutter speed can be used to minimize blur when shooting moving subjects even in dimly lit locations.

  • Average camera
    f/ value: 3.9, shutter speed: 1/30 sec. (The dark lens prevents use of a faster shutter speed)
  • Camera with a bright f/2.0 lens
    f/ value: 2.0, shutter speed: 1/125 sec. (The bright lens allows use of a faster shutter speed)

f/2.0 folded optics zoom lens

The TG-4 boasts the ultimate brightness for a folded optics zoom lens at f/2.0. Lenses created with advanced optical technology are lavishly used, including the DSA lens. These features make for a camera with both Tough performance and excellent image quality.

  • 4.5 - 18.0mm (35mm equivalent: 25 - 100mm) f/2.0 - 4.9, 4x zoom
  1. DSA lens: Dual Super Aspherical lens
  2. HR/HD lens: High Refractive Index and Dispersion lens
  3. Aspherical lenses

Aperture priority (A) mode makes use of the F2.0 lens

Aperture Priority (A) mode is now included. With this feature, the bright f/2.0 lens can be used to capture clearer images.

Reliable "Tough" performance

Waterproof, dustproof, shockproof, crushproof, and freezeproof -- the TG-4 is a camera that provides excellent image quality in any type of environment imaginable.

15m Waterproof1

Olympus-original technologies such as protective sealing and a double lock mechanism enable waterproof performance down to depths of 15m. Not only does this make it possible to shoot in heavy rain, but it also lets you shoot while you snorkel.


The TG-4 dustproof construction features airtight mechanisms that prevent sand and dust from entering the camera.

2.1m Shockproof1

The TG-4 boasts greater shock-absorbing performance than any Tough camera before, with ability to withstand drops from 2.1m high. Olympus ingenuity has been utilized in every facet, from the lens shape and maintenance method to the frame drive method.

100kgf Crushproof1

The lens barrel, supports, shutter, and aperture were thoroughly tested and found to be able to withstand loads up to 100 kgf. With its crushproof capabilities, you won't have to worry about accidentally sitting on your camera.

-10℃ Freezeproof1

Conventional digital cameras are not guaranteed to operate at temperatures that fall below 0℃. The TG-4, however, is guaranteed operation down to -10℃, so you can feel confident using it as you enjoy winter sports.

Movie features

The TG-4 features unique movie functions, such as HD movie, high-speed movie, and time lapse movie.

High-Speed Movie

Capture ultra high-speed movies at 120 fps or 240 fps. Split-second movements can then be played back in slow motion.

  • The movie size is 640 x 480 at 120fps and 320 x 240 at 240fps.
  • The maximum recording time for a high-speed movie is 20 seconds.

Time Lapse Movie

The Interval Shooting function is included for fixed-point observation shooting. This can be used to shoot scenes such as the movement of people or the movement of stars. Simply set the number of shots as well as the interval between each shot and the camera will automatically shoot successive images. After shooting is complete, the camera can generate a Time Lapse movie for a maximum of 10 seconds (when shooting 99 shots)*. With this function, you can enjoy successive shots as a movie.

  • Limited to Motion JPEG (10 fps) recording format.
  • 1: Waterproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class 8 (IPX8) equivalent. The number of shots that can be recorded is reduced at lower temperature. Kilogram-force (kgf) is the unit for measuring force exerted on an object. Dustproof performance is JIS/IEC protection class (IP6X) equivalent. All tests were performed under Olympus in-house test conditions.
