Olympus Tough! TG-Tracker Review
Haven’t action cams been done to death?
You’d think so. right? Well, take it from us. the Olympus Tough! TG-Tracker is limbering up to become one of the best action cameras money can buy.
Olympus has serious form when it comes to making adventure-proof cameras, and this all-action field-log camera is built to accompany you to the snowiest peaks and the darkest, wateriest depths.
So it’s waterproof, then?
You bet. To 30 metres below sea level, without housing. The TG-Tracker has a 60-lumen spotlight to help you shoot in darker settings, and automatically adjusts white balance and other key settings underwater. View the footage later via the Olympus Image Track Version 2.0 app. and the camera’s tracking and field-logging capabilities enable you to discover what depth you were diving at. the water temperature and the distance you were from that basking shark.
But I don’t scuba-dive, I sky-dive.

The compact size of this 180g action cam
All good – the TG-Tracker will log data during your dive, sensing acceleration, altitude or depth, air temperature and changes in g-force (such as when your parachute opens). You don’t need to worry about image quality, either – the 5-axis image stabilization delivers steady video, view via the 1.5-inch. 90-degree tilt-out color LCD.
So the camera is quality?
Heck. yes. You can record 4K video, powered by the same TruePic VII image processor found in several high-end Olympus interchangeable-lens cameras, and also take selfies in-between all that action using the built-in mirror for framing. Done filming? Review the footage as high-res 4K on your TV or smartphone (you’ll need to download the Ol.Track app), and browse images and data in split-screen mode.
Lordy! When can I buy this beast?
The Olympus Tough! TG-Tracker is available to buy this month.
Get quality footage, whatever action you’re chasing!
