Olympus TG-Tracker review

 

The TG-Tracker is a solid first foray into the action camera market by Olympus

The TG-Tracker's stylish and rugged design helps it stand out from the boxy action cam crowd, and it's got specs and features to go with those looks, making it a serious challenger to GoPro and other established names.

The Olympus Tough TG-Tracker offers all the normal features you'd expect from a waterproof action camera, with an ultra-wide-angle 204 degree lens, with a bright f/2.0 aperture. The camera records 4K video, with stereo sound, and electronic image...

Olympus TG-Tracker Shooting Experience

 

Olympus has been in the rugged camera business for a very long time, with its first model, the Stylus 720SW, released way back in 2006. Ten years later the company has made the leap to action cams.

This new Olympus action cam is tougher and smarter than the competition

 

Even without a housing, the Olympus Tracker is tougher than most action cams.

Olympus TG-Tracker Review

 

The Olympus TG-Tracker is a 7.2-megapixel compact camera that is shockproof to a height of 2.1 metres, crushproof to a weight of 100kg, dustproof, freezeproof down to -10°C and waterproof down to a depth of 30 metres. The TG-Tracker features a 14mm f/2...

Offering ruggedness and resilience a-plenty – but not bulk – the 8 megapixel stills shooting Olympus TG-Tracker offers convenience and portability. Ironically, because it is so small, a UK price tag of just under £300 may at first appear a little...

Olympus TG-Tracker Review

 

With its unusual TG Tracker, Olympus takes its long-running TG-series of Tough-branded cameras in an altogether rather different direction. The company is billing the TG Tracker as a "rugged experiential camera", and points at the wearables market as...

As well as these bundled accessories, Olympus is also offering an optional Tracker Holder accessory. This attaches to belts or straps, and has both a carabiner and spiral safety cord to prevent accidental drops. It allows access to both the Wi-Fi and...

Olympus TG Tracker review

 

The Tough TG-Tracker is the latest rugged waterproof action camera from Olympus. The Tough brand has proved very successful for Olympus and a decade on from the release of its first Tough model it enjoys a fairly dominant position in the market for...

Bright f2 fixed focus lens with 204 degree field of view ; Flip-out LCD screen ; Multitude of sensors inc GPS, manometer, accelerometer and temperature ; Built-in LED light ; Detachable grip ; Wifi

Less than sparkling image quality ; 4k video resolved no more detail than 1080p in my tests ; No manual control option for sensitivity or exposure ; Heavier than other action cameras ; No fast burst modes ; Screen doesn't face forward

The Olympus Tough TG-Tracker marks a departure from earlier Tough models. It's a personal action camera designed to compete with the likes of GoPro and its imitators. As such it's smaller than conventional waterproof compacts and dispenses with a lot...
