?The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS is a compact camera that is water-, shock-, freeze-, and dust-proof.
It is equipped with an express sensor, 1 / 2.3 inches BSI CMOS sensor, which is strongly sensitive, a brilliant zoom lens, 35mm equivalent, and other attractive features. It has an intense f2.0 maximum aperture which is something that you like when taking shots underwater or in less lighted places. This lens is pretty fast if compared with other lenses on the market with f3.3 to f3.9 apertures.
Compared to other Tough models, the Touch TG-1 seems to impress users more with its output and performance.
With the camera’s 12 megapixels, the image quality that the Tough TG-1 produces is above average for a rugged-looking point and shoot camera. At the minimum ISO level of TG-1, its quality sits at the middle of maximum sharpness and softness. This image quality carries on up to ISO 800. It isn’t super sharp.
While doing a video recording, the zoom can be used. With maximum resolution, the camera can shoot up to 5 frames per second, but, with a drop to 3 megapixels, it can do 15 frames per second or 60 frames per second. On the other hand, there are complaints about annoying sounds that the camera makes when shooting videos. It is claimed to be the end result of waterproofing, however, not all waterproof cameras have the same sound issue when making video clips.
The screen has an ideal size of 3 inches OLED. This camera has the typical design where in the lens is at the center unlike those new cameras these days where the lenses are normally found at one side. It offers Global Positioning System (GPS) and digital compass. There is no dedicated battery charger. It would be more convenient to have extra batteries. To plug the camera when charging it is not always possible.
This camera comes with a micro HDMI output for a better entertainment when you connect it to an HDTV. It is reasonably priced and generally fits the bill especially if compared with high-end pro cameras and lenses.
There is less stress to carry this camera along when hiking, running, swimming or doing any other sports adventures. It can endure drops of up to 6.6 feet, up to 14°F temperatures, up to 40 feet dive into the water for a maximum of one hour and can survive up to 220 lbs of pressing weight; definitely, these features make stress-free those who are very conscious of the safety of their investment.
The Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS has settings that are easy to use but manual controls are not that many and not that easy to click. Moreover, it is not easy to use several settings at one time because after clicking one setting the menu will automatically return to the top of the list, so instead of just adding different settings at one time, you will need to go back again and again to the top and scroll down for additional selections.
Overall, the Nikon Tough TG - 1 iHS is equipped with in-demand features. It is stress-free to use due to its durability and size. It is worth the purchase.
