Product Overview

Olympus Tough TG-6 is a high-end 1/2.3" compact action camera. Introduced by Olympus in 2019, it comes with a 1/2.3" sensor with 12 MP (4000 x 3000) resolution.
The camera has a poor battery life, and a second or third battery may be needed to get you through the day. Professionals and fanboys will be pleased by the extraordinary 20.0 fps burst rate that this camera can deliver.
The Olympus Tough TG-6 comes with 25 autofocus points and a built-in GPS. Those who intend to use the Olympus Tough TG-6 for video work will be glad to find that the camera comes with 2.5 stops of IBIS. Last but not least, the camera can focus quite close to the subject.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following***:
The Olympus TG-6 is a modest update to our favorite point-and-shoot camera. It can go deep under water, survive drops and extreme temperatures, and snap crisp, lifelike photos. To get the best image quality, you need to shoot in Raw format. Video-first creators should stick with an action camera (our favorite is the GoPro Hero8 Black)
