Olympus TG-2 review

 

A tough camera with aperture priority

Controls exposure well ; Images have great colour ; Tough

Smudges some finer details ; Screen glare is difficult ; Can't use controls wearing gloves

In many respects the Olympus TG-2 is a good performer. It produces sharp, well-exposed images with excellent colours in a range of situations.

Olympus Tough TG-2 Review

 

, and features the same bright f/2.0 4x optical zoom lens, 12 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor, 3inch screen and tough credentials, but it is now tougher than the TG-1, waterproof to 15 metres, and slightly more shockproof from 2.1metres.

Good colour reproduction, Fast focus and performance, 2 year warranty, Added aperture priority mode, Excellent macro mode, Extremely tough, Magic filters, Availability of lens adapters, Bright f/2.0 lens

Panorama images don't stitch together very well, Macro mode would benefit from better illumination, HDR mode limits images to 3mp, Noise of lens focusing and zooming in videos

Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS review

 

The Olympus Tough TG-2 is a solidly built camera that is worth a look if you take a lot of active vacations, but issues with water intrusion gives us pause.

We are torn. We recommended the TG-1, and we started off really loving the TG-2. Nice images and fast performance in a rugged point-and-shoot – or any point-and-shoot, for that matter – can be difficult to come by, but the TG-2 handles with aplomb....

This is the second in a series of short underwater/rugged camera reviews on DPReview. We're testing the cameras concurrently, and once all six cameras have been reviewed, we'll publish a roundup of the class, comparing them directly.

The Olympus TG-2 offers a very rugged body combined with good image quality, a fast lens, superb performance, a full-featured GPS system and plenty of fun extras. Downsides are few, which include issues with panning in movies, highlight clipping and...

Olympus TG-2 iHS

 

Olympus, along with Pentax, is one of the pioneers of the underwater/rugged camera. Its first camera, the Stylus 720 SW, was introduced back in 2006, and the rest is history. Many, many generations of rugged cameras later, the Tough TG-1 iHS arrived,...

Olympus was one of the pioneers of 'rugged' cameras, and its latest flagship, the Tough TG-2 iHS, is one of its best. The TG-2 is able to take a beating, whether it's underwater (up to 15 meters), dropped (from to 2.1 meters), frozen (as cold as -10C),...
