The Olympus TG-6 is one of the most popular and awaited compact cameras for underwater photography. Easy to use, small and lightweight it is ideal for travelling. With it's excellent built in microsope mode, you can shoot tiny critters all day long. The package also includes the Kraken Sports KRL-02 Wide Angle Wet Lens which allows you to capture stunning images with ambient light or even while snorkeling.
The Olympus TG-6 is almost identical to the TG-5 in terms of design. It has the same level of indestructability – freezeproof to 14°F / -10°C, crushproof to 220 lbf / 100 kgf, and shockproof from 7 ft / 2.1 m. The size is the same, and it is compatible with the Olympus TG-5 underwater housing. Likewise, the TG-5 should be compatible with the Olympus TG-6 housing. The camera is also waterproof to 50 ft, so if you wish to take photos in the range of normal recreational scuba diving depths, it’s recommended to purchase an underwater housing.
There are lots of improvements that was made on the camera, LCD screen now has a much sharper resolution compared to its predecessor. One notable upgrade to the build that will be beneficial to underwater photographers is the anti-reflective coating to glass around sensor that reduces flare and ghosting. This is great for wide angle photographers that like to shoot into the sun and capture sunballs.
The controls and ergonomics on the TG-6 are the most significant improvement. Controls and functions are easily accessible and well thought off. Microscope mode and video functions are now available in program and aperture priority modes. This makes it so you can shoot macro, wide, and video without switching modes.The camera also offers additional underwater white balance presets
The sensor on the camera is still great with 1/2.3” BSI CMOS 12 MP sensor. Lowlight performance is surprisingly good with less noise in the image and faster processing times than the TG-4. If you want beautiful underwater images at an excellent price point, this camera will not disappoint.
