Olympus Tough TG-1 iHS Review

Digitaltrends
10 August 2012
  • Conclusion: The TG-1 iHS has set the bar very high for itself, and we’re happy to say it just about reaches it. Tough cams are an increasingly popular breed, because consumers want versatility — and they deserve it. As compact systems become more and more advanced and thus expensive, we should be able to find something that can check multiple boxes, including being “lifeproof.” You can check that right off with the TG-1, thankfully, without sacrificing too much in other areas.
  • Pros: Attachment lens options, Quick, easy-to-use settings, Bright, clear display, F2.0 lens is a big help with low-light shooting
  • Cons: A better sensor and more manual controls are on the wish list, Button click could be harder

Olympus Tough TG-1 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: The Olympus Tough TG-1 produces consistently sharp photos with great colours. It's not one of the cheapest compacts around, but it packs a lot of features, including GPS and underwater shooting capability. The camera is small enough to fit in a pocket or handbag, and produces great images in a wide variety of scenarios.

Olympus TG-1 review

TechRadar UK
20 July 2012
  • Summary: Tough compact with f/2.0 lens
  • Pros: Rugged build and specs, Fast f2.0 lens, Great all-round image quality, Excellent macro shooting, Fast operation, The Olympus TG-1's fast f/2.0 lens comes into its own when the lights go down, while the camera's robust body provides peace of mind when out in inclement conditions. Great colours, a good level of detail and accurately metered shots are also easily achievable.
  • Cons: GPS drains battery, Noise at high ISOs, Video jerky at telephoto settings, In-camera battery charging can be inconvenient, The GPS capabilities of this camera are useful. However, it really drains the battery if left to track when the camera's powered down. Options to turn this feature off are also initially difficult to locate in the menu system.

Test: Olympus TG-1 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
4 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Die Bildqualität verhindert eine Spitzen-Platzierung. Die Fotos der TG-1 leiden unter der zu starken Weichzeichnung und dem Schärfeverlust am Bildrand. Schade, denn die Geschwindigkeit und die Ausstattung erfüllen gehobene Ansprüche. Die TG-1 ist robust, punktet mit einem reaktionsschnellen Autofokus, dem kontraststarken Display, einem lichtstarken Objektiv und Zusatzfunktionen wie GPS.
  • Pros: AMOLED-Display, Robust, Rasanter Autofokus, Lichtstarkes Objektiv
  • Cons: Fotos mit Weichzeichnung, Schärfeverlust am Bildrand

  • Summary: Karaktererne må sættes i forhold til kameratypen. Da er det en klokkeklar femmer i alle discipliner undtagen kvalitet. Her uddeler vi en sekser. For skal man have et kamera, som tåler at blive tabt, kan klare en dukkert eller ti og samtidig leverer billedkvalitet, som man kan blive meget tilfreds med, er det Olympus TG-1, der er sagen. Barskere bliver det ikke for godt og vel 3.000 kroner.
  • Pros: God skarphed og opløsning, Hurtige reaktioner, Solid kvalitet
  • Cons: Ingen blænde/lukkerkontrol, Lagrer ikke råfiler

Olympus Tough Tg-1, la prova più estrema

gadget.wired.it
28 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Olympus prosegue la sua consolidata tradizione di fotocamere action con il modello Tough TG-1. Che la nuova ammiraglia sia materia da uomini duri si evince già dal nome. In mano è stagna e pesantuccia, ma è comprensibile: riesce a sopravvivere a cadute da 2 metri di altezza, scatta foto e video full Hd fino a dodici metri di profondità e, più in generale, resiste all’uso rude, o semplicemente maldestro, dei fotografi dilettanti in vacanza nel mar Rosso.
