Olympus TG Series

The camera will be set up for you with a new 8 GB SD card which you can keep at the end of the rental period.

Renting cameras is only possible at our Gooddive location. Pick up is available from 8:30 am onward. Please return by 4:30 pm to allow time for drying to remove the SD card.

  • The Olympus TG series cameras deliver fantastic photos and video (both wide angle and macro) with excellent image quality from dedicated underwater settings. The design team at Olympus have evolved this camera with underwater pictures in mind; and it shows! The camera itself is waterproof down to 50 feet (15 meter), but we’ll only rent it out with the dedicated Olympus PT-058 UW housing rated to 147 feet (45 meter).
  • In addition to the underwater settings the camera has 4K video capability.
  • The TG series cameras are extremely rugged and are waterproof, crushproof, shockproof, freezeproof, and dustproof.
  • Setting the camera to the basic underwater settings is very easy and divers will receive a basic run through when renting. This is perfect for divers who just want to ‘set it and forget it’ and those who wish to get easy all-around images.
