  • This has not been completely corrected in the TG-6 but I believe the problem has been significantly reduced.  Olympus did add an anti-reflective coating to some of their internal optics likely to ...
  • You might post this to the forum " Olympus SLR Talk ".  This forum mostly focus on Olympus compacts. I will say though..that on my Olympus TG-6 this is under Menu > Setup/Gear > Rec View.   On the ...
  • Thanks for the feedback.  I did some testing with this...  The crop on the TG-6 actually seems somewhat significant.  Also video with stabilization on seems less crisp and a bit more smudged.  But ...
  • If it doesn't work for you, definitely don't feel compelled to use it.  It helps me, because I tend to move the camera when I press the trigger.   For some users with stable hands or those ...
  • Yep, this is correct. Of course if you zoom in the F values will change, but it's still the two variants plus the ND filter. I'm not sure I've got the hang of the TG-6 aperture system. In macro ...
  • So for TG owners, what are your thoughts on video stabilization?  Pro's and con's of having it on or off? What about image stabilization?  Are the any times where it helps to leave it off?
  • I don't own a TG-5, but do own a TG-6 and shoot a lot of macro. I honestly am not sure what is going on, but will throw out some ideas (hopefully others will chime in that know more). (1) Your Shutter ...
  • Replied in Too niche
    I'm not arguing that smaller apertures will let in the same amount of light.  Heck I'm not even arguing that Olympus has to ditch their ND filter (maybe it is useful for some long exposures).   ...

    I still think Olympus does not communicate this well. I just did some tests on my TG-6 with aperture priority.  I toggled between between F 2.8 and F 8.0.  The latter if of course the fake ...
  • Replied in Too niche
    Most people use AP to control DOF and not light.  It is very confusing to have three f-stops for aperture priority and the third setting is not really an fstop but an fstop equivalent in light.  ...
  • Replied in Too niche
    I'm not why...but bigger sensors tend to mean more expensive cameras. Maybe it has to do with the optics. The DC2000 is one of the most expensive UW cameras at $700, while the TG-5/6 runs at $450. ...
  • Replied in Too niche
    I appreciate the review. Despite being critical, it is well thought out and written. For landscape shooting, zoom isn't that important. But for almost everything else it is...wildlife, portrait, ...
  • One last trick and a slick way to figure out if you have a GPS lock or not... With the camera off, press the "info" button.  This will display the time, temperature, a gigantic compass and ...
  • I don't have the TG-5, but I do have the TG-6 which I assume is similar. Olympus communicates this very poorly...but they actually have two GPS functions. A tracker and a tagger. The tracker will ...
  • Thank you! Most of these are straight out of camera with no PP tweaks (a few exceptions to boost contrast). I find a good Macro combination for the TG-6 is: - Attachment: LG-1 - Picture Mode: ...
  • A product that would fill an attractive niche not only in the Olympus market but the general market...would be a waterproof super zoom. I'm not talking about a diving camera like the TG ...
  • Thanks for posting this...I REALLY messed up. You are right...and I had been selecting the FCON-T01 instead of the TCON-T01...darn small menu.   It's impressive that some were still as sharp as ...
  • Created discussion thread Review for the Tcon-101 & TG-6
    I haven't seen a review for the TG-6 combined with the Tcon-101, so I thought I would share my own two cents. Basically, this is an accessory you can get for the TG series that extends the zoom range.
  • Are you willing to convert on a desktop? If so, Avidemux works great for TG-6 videos and is free. http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/download.html Something to keep in mind... .MOV is not a codec...it ...
  • Good idea to sample the clouds...interesting...the clouds aren't so white in the sunny WB when sampled. This means that sampling them for OTWB would be a bad idea. It's more than just finding it ...
