Olympus announces the Stylus Tough TG-Tracker, which combines Ultra HD 4K video capture, high-quality imaging and log data to expand the outdoor video experience. Complete with Olympus’ Tough rugged capabilities, the Stylus Tough TG-Tracker is the “perfect companion for the photographer in even the most extreme shooting environments.”

Key Specs

..

In addition to Olympus image quality and its wide-angle, hand-held framing flexibility, it also has another dimension that makes sure it stands out among other outdoor still and video cameras: its five sensors. Unlike products with regular geotagging, the TG-Tracker can sense acceleration, altitude or depth and temperature as well as direction of movement – in addition to latitude and longitude.

…For example, when they review footage on their smartphone, scuba divers can see at a glance at what depth, water temperature and distance from the entry point they encountered a spectacular fish or species of coral. The camera even logs changes in G force – like a parachute opening or the take-off and landing that bookend a snowboarder’s 360 – then tags the chapter for easy retrieval. The TG-Tracker lets owners focus on the immediate challenge and thrill, while it is capturing all the key data. By showing images and details in context in the new and free Olympus Image Track App (OI.Track) – such as where a photo was taken on a realistic depth/time profile of a scuba dive – five-sensor tracking makes re-viewing and sharing extreme activities all the more fascinating, and more intense. This isn’t just life logging. It’s energising logging of a real-life adventure…

Olympus Image Track software supplied
Reviewing footage is when the TG-Tracker really comes into its own – and the images and data recorded come vividly to life, either as high-resolution 4K video on a full-size TV or on a smartphone equipped with the new version of the free Olympus OI.Track App… OI.Track offers owners a variety of features and settings, but the most important is the option to browse images and related log data together, in split-screen mode. The log for each clip or still can be viewed from two perspectives: as a birds-eye map or as a chart plotting depth/altitude against time.

Field Review: A day at the zoo with the Fujinon XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR super telephoto lens

Honored as the best CSC telephoto zoom lens at the 2016 Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) awards, the Fujinon XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR is Fujifilm’s first super telephoto lens that makes wildlife and sports photography a viable option using their mirrorless cameras. I had the lens together with the X-Pro2 camera for three weeks and I took the opportunity to shoot it at various places, including the Toronto Zoo. Note that, at the zoo, some of the images are shot through glass or chain link fencing but you can’t tell because I placed the front lens element right against the glass or fence. All images (except for the 100% crops which are unretouched) have been slightly sharpened in post-processing. Click image for larger version.

FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 at 400mm (609mm equiv.), f/5.6, 1/300 sec., ISO 800

FUJINON XF100-400mmF4.5-5.6 at 400mm (609mm equiv.), f/5.6, 1/300 sec., ISO 800

Mounted on the X-Pro2 which uses an APS-C image sensor, this lens has an equivalent 152-609mm focal length range. It is constructed with 21 elements in 14 groups and includes 5 ED lenses and one Super ED lens to reduce axial chromatic aberration. A 5-stop image stabilization system makes hand-held shooting possible and twin linear motors deliver fast and near-silent AF. It features a rounded 9-blade aperture for pleasing bokeh and is compatible with the XF1.4X TC WR teleconverter, extending the reach to 140-560mm F6.3-8 (213-853mm in 35mm equivalent).
