High Image Quality for Improved Detail

The bright F2.0 high-resolution lens delivers high image quality thanks to a combination of the high-speed back-illuminated CMOS image sensor and the latest image processor.

High-resolution F2.0 lens

The TG-6 features a high-resolution, F2.0 lens with an optical 4x zoom. Lenses developed with advanced optical technology are used, including a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lens for high image quality. The bright F2.0 lens makes it possible to use a fast shutter speed to reduce subject blur, even when capturing moving subjects in dark locations.

4.5-18.0mm (35mm equivalent: 25 - 100mm), F2.0 - 4.9, optical 4x zoom
  1. DSA lens: Dual Super Aspherical lens
  2. HR/HD lens: High Refractive Index & Dispersion lens
  3. Aspherical lenses
  • Conventional camera
    (The dark lens prevents use of a faster shutter speed)
  • Camera with a bright F2.0 lens
    F/value: 2.0, shutter speed: 1/1600 sec (The bright lens allows use of a faster shutter speed)

4x optical zoom + 2x digital teleconverter

The TG-6 is equipped with a 2x digital teleconverter, enabling zooming up to 8x (35mm equivalent: 25 - 200mm). It provides a broad range of photography, from wide-angle bird's-eye view of scenic landscapes, to zoomed-in telephoto close-ups of distant subjects.

  • 35mm equivalent: 100mm
  • 35mm equivalent: 200mm

Image sensor and image processor

This camera is equipped with a high-speed, high-sensitivity back-lit CMOS image sensor, and the TruePic VIII, the same image processor as on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II professional model. This design allows for low noise and high-resolution image quality.

  • High-sensitivity shooting is possible up to ISO 12800.

AR coating reduces ghosts and flares

Anti-reflective (AR) coating is now used on both sides of the sealing glass over the image sensor. This construction minimises ghosts and flaring.

RAW photography

The TG-6 allows shooting in RAW format. RAW images can be edited and processed on a computer using the new image editing software, Olympus Workspace. RAW processing on the camera is also supported.
