Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker

Digital Photography Review reports: [edited]

The TG-Tracker takes 8MP stills with an ultra-wide 204˚ view F2.0 lens and provides 4K/30p and 1080/60p video recording options.

The unit is rated to be waterproof to 30m/100ft, shockproof from 2.1m/7ft, freeze-proof to -10C/+14F and crushproof to 100kgf/220lbf.

Also provided are a 1.5" flip-out LCD and a built-in lamp with 30 and 60 lumen settings. The tracking features include GPS, barometric pressure sensor, temperature sensor, compass and an accelerometer. A pistol-style grip is bundled with the camera to help keep shots steady.

The camera syncs with Olympus' Image Track app via Wi-Fi to display data logs including the user's route and elevation, and can display detailed summaries of excursions including total elapsed time, distance travelled, average speed and minimum/maximum elevation, among other data points. Images and video can be transferred to the user's smartphone using the app.

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker is due to hit retailers in June for $349.99 in green and black body options.
