Superb System Expandability

The TG-6 features superb system expandability with a wealth of accessories including those for macro shooting and converter lenses. This design also delivers control required in punishing environments.


A wealth of accessories that expand the realms of shooting

Macro shooting accessories

Two accessories for macro shooting enable more creative photography when using the TG-6 Microscope Mode.

LG-1 LED Light Guide

This is an accessory that evens out the illumination of the camera's built-in LED light. It can be used to illuminate the subject during macro photography. It is designed to be used at ultra-close shooting distances up to 1 cm from the camera.

  • Cannot be used underwater.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

FD-1 Flash Diffuser

This accessory uses the cameras built-in flash to light scenes. It is perfect for lighting macro shots in dark locations, and for shooting moving subjects such as insects. The FD-1 Flash Diffuser is equipped with light output control, allowing you to adjust the lighting output in approximately 1.4 steps to match shooting conditions.

  • Cannot be used underwater.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

Converter lenses

Three converter lenses (1 telephoto and 2 fisheye) are available. These can be used without lowering the aperture value of the lens to enable the capture of moving or dimly lit subjects.

TCON-T01 Teleconverter

This teleconverter lens converts the focal length to 1.7x. Far-away landscapes can be captured at a larger size. The interior of this waterproof lens is filled with nitrogen gas, preventing internal fogging due to temperature differences.

  • The separately sold CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter is required to attach this lens.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

FCON-T02 Fisheye Converter

This fisheye converter lens enables circular fisheye photography. Simply change the zoom position to capture both circular and diagonal fisheye shots. It features a waterproof-treatment, enabling further opportunities to capture underwater scenes. The interior of the lens is filled with nitrogen gas, preventing internal fogging due to temperature differences.

  • The separately sold CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter is required to attach this lens.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter

This fisheye converter lens provides 130-degree diagonal fisheye shooting capabilities for capturing wider landscape photos. The FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter is waterproof and is most useful in underwater photography where the angle of view becomes narrow. The interior of the lens is filled with nitrogen gas, preventing internal fogging due to temperature differences.

  • The separately sold CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter is required to attach this lens.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter

This is an adapter for attaching the TCON-T01 Teleconverter, FCON-T02 Fisheye Converter, FCON-T01 Fisheye Converter, and PRF-D40.5 PRO Protection Filter. A lens cap is included to keep the lens clean while carrying the camera.

  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

Lens protection accessories

LB-T01 Lens Barrier

This lens barrier protects the lens from dirt and scratches. It can be opened and closed simply by turning the edge even when wearing gloves. This accessory makes it possible to shoot quickly when opportunities arise.

  • Items can't be used simultaneously are: other accessories or conversion lens to be attacked to the mount, silicone jacket and underwater housing.
  • Macro LED illumination can't be used while the lens barrier is attached. (It causes shadows on the photo.)

PRF-D40.5 PRO Protection Filter

A thin, lightweight protection filter with multi-coating on both sides. It protects the lens surface from dirt and scratches while carrying the camera or shooting.

  • The separately sold CLA-T01 Conversion Lens Adapter is required to attach this lens.
  • Can not be used simultaneously with the underwater housing.

Camera cases

CSCH-123 Sport Holder

The Sport Holder secures your camera to a belt or backpack. With it you can quickly shoot sports scenes. The included carabiner and spiral safety cord make sure you never have to worry about losing the camera.

CHS-09 Floating Handstrap

This floating hand-strap is equipped with a carabiner, and can be attached to an arm or wrist. When attached, the camera floats on the surface so you won't have to worry about losing it while enjoying water activities.

CSCH-121 Mesh Camera Case

This is a mesh camera case designed with air holes for use with the Tough series. It features excellent water drainage, ventilation, and dries quickly so you never have to worry about rust. It is the perfect case for activities such as marine sports, diving, fishing, trekking, skiing, and snowboarding.

CSCH-127 Silicone Jacket

This silicone jacket designed specifically for the TG-6 protects the surface of the camera from scratches. It also improves grip for a secure hold on the camera, even in slippery situations. The LG-1 LED Light Guide and FD-1 Flash Diffuser can be used even when the silicone jacket is fitted.

  • The camera should not be stored in a camera case with the silicone jacket on.
  • Cannot be used with the LB-T01 Lens Barrier.

PT-059 Underwater Case

This underwater housing made exclusively for the TG-6 can withstand pressure to a water depth of 45m. Even when stored in the housing, the camera control dial can be used for exposure compensation. The front surface is black to prevent any unwanted reflections. The housing supports the use of two external flash units.

  • The Field Sensor System will not operate properly when the camera is installed in the underwater housing. Make sure to set the log lever to the off position when using the case.
  • Use together with silica gel for best results.

Others

Field Sensor System

The TG-6 is equipped with built-in field sensors: a GPS sensor, thermometer, barometer, and compass. This system automatically obtains tracking data, such as location information, while on the move (latitude and longitude), air temperature/water temperature, altitude (depth of water), and shooting direction. This data can then be imported to the Olympus Image Track (OI. Track) smartphone app to be linked with images for displaying both the route travelled, and the altitude (or depth of water). This feature makes it possible to recreate the experience of mountain climbing, diving, and other similar activities.

Pro Capture

Pro Capture is a sequential shooting mode that captures images at 10 fps from approx. 0.5 seconds before the shutter release is activated. With this mode you can capture scenes that were previously impossible due to camera time lag, such as the moment a whale spouts water.

Video functions

This model is compatible with 4K Movie which provides the ability to capture beautiful scenery in high definition. High-speed Movie is also supported, providing 120-fps recording capability at Full HD resolution.

  • Use a UHS-1 UHS speed class 3 SD card when shooting 4K Movie and High-speed Movie.
