  • As a workaround, you can use the "Underwater snapshot 2" mode. It locks the lens at hyperfocal distance, so everything is in focus.  There are two drawbacks though - first, the zoom is locked to ...
  • This looks like a defective camera to me. I mean, not all TG-2s, but your particular unit. My TG-1 does a lot better in low light. I would suggest contacting Olympus - their warranty service is ...
  • No external charging *out of the box*.  I've had a third-party wall charger for my TG-1 for years, it works just fine, and came with two spare batteries (that I rotate).  A cheap knock-off bought ...
  • Thank you, that's a much clearer statement! The part that I disagree with are the unsubstantiated statements that imply that humans are directly endangered by this extinction. There is no evidence ...
  • "As a lapsed human ecologist I have to disagree" Which part(s) of my point, exactly, do you disagree with? Specifically?
  • Well, the study is used (I assume) to make the case that reducing legal gun ownership would reduce gun deaths. To make such a case, at the very least they need to show how much of a reduction would ...
  • Ah, okay, I see. Yes, the species loss due to loss of habitats and displacement is sad and disturbing. At the same time, the many news headlines about "are humans to be among the early victims?" ...
  • Where did I mention biomass? Populations aren't measured in biomass. I asked if there was any evidence that this extinction somehow included humans. Is there a decline in human population, or ...
  • In order for this study to make an argument against gun ownership, it has to be very clearly separate the crimes committed by the guns' legal owners. If the argument is that the legally owned guns ...
  • I haven't heard anything about human population declining. Can an extinction happen without population decline? What about the populations of the species that humans need to survive - like ...
  • When I was making a similar decision, there were three things that put me off the Sony: The touchscreen (useless when wet), the movable protective plate at the front (sand trap), and (reportedly) ...
  • Replied in TG-4 Question
    If you're short on card space, it's generally accepted that you'd get better images by dialing down the resolution, while keeping the commission at its lowest setting - as opposed to raising ...
  • One thing you'll like about the TG-4 is its fast AF and general responsiveness. The battery life is pretty good too, especially if you limit flash usage and "chimping".
  • Thank you!

  • What are the 35mm equivalent focal lengths for the front and back cameras, anybody knows?

  • The battery is not removable.

  • The market is pretty bad altogether. Just look at how many non-interchangeable lens models each manufacturer released last year, compared to a couple years ago. I believe, Olympus is down to four ...
  • "is it so complicated/expensive to have TG-4 size, NEX-5 IQ (which is not asking much these days of even better IQ in compact cameras), and TG-4 ruggedness in the same package?" The problems have ...
  • Ricoh GR, IIRC, doesn't have optical zoom and isn't exactly cheap. A typical user of a tough camera (a climber, a kayaker, a skier, etc.) shoots in good light, but often can't "zoom with his feet". ...
  • "Officer Loehmann and Officer Garmback were sent to the scene after a 911 caller said he had seen someone outside the recreation center pulling a gun in and out of his pants and scaring people. ...
