Olympus Tough TG-6 Waterproof Camera Announced

Olympus has officially announced the new TG-6 waterproof camera today. The TG-6 has the same design as its predecessor, though it’s LCD now has 1.04 million dots, compared to 460k dots on the TG-5. Unfortunately, we found that the display scratches just as easily as before: disappointing for a ‘tough’ camera. Its rugged credentials are unchanged: The camera is waterproof to 15m (50ft), shockproof from 2.4m (7ft), crushproof to 100kgf (220lbf) and freezeproof to -10°C/+14°F.

The US price for Olympus TG-6 is $449, now available for pre-order at Amazon/B&H Photo Video/Adorama. Release date in late June, 2019.
