IM­AGE QUAL­ITY & PER­FOR­MANCE - OLYM­PUS STY­LUS TG-4 TOUGH

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST -

In terms of sheer reach, the TG-4 Tough falls be­hind the rest of the group as it only of­fers a zoom range of 25-100 mm (35mm equiv­a­lent), but we did take ad­van­tage of the un­der­wa­ter ca­pa­bil­i­ties by half sub­merg­ing it in wa­ter to get unique im­ages from that per­spec­tive. This is also where the tap ca­pa­bil­i­ties came in handy as we wouldn’t have had an easy way to change set­tings oth­er­wise. Im­ages in bright sun­light do tend to ex­hibit a bit of pur­ple fring­ing though, and it seems to lack the mi­cro-con­trast and sharp­ness ex­hib­ited by some of the com­pe­ti­tion. The cam­era is best kept at the base ISO of 100 though, as de­tail loss starts from as early as ISO 400 and be­comes un­re­cov­er­able from ISO 1600 on­wards.

Im­ages from the TG4 Tough have slightly less de­tail com­pared to the oth­ers.

At ISO 1600, fine de­tail turns to mush.
