Welcome to the Newcomer section!
All our professional underwater photographers recomend starting your underwater photography journey with a digital compact camera like the Olympus Tough series. Whether you go diving to take your first pictures of coral reefs, wrecks or marine life – with a Tough camera by your side, you are good to go!
The Tough models are perfect for those who would like to start with underwater photography. The accessible predefined underwater modes make it easy for all newcomers to capture the most amazing moments above and below sea level. Due to their outstanding image quality and versatility, these cameras are also well accepted by professional photographers, for example as a second body for fascinating macro shots or as a training camera for workshops. With the TG-5 you can directly start shooting when snorkling: Without the need for an underwater housing up to 15m deep, the very light Though camera is always ready and awaits an underwater adventure with you. And the respective housing will even allow for you to make most of it up to 45m below the surface. Let's dive in!
Herbert Frei - Olympus Visionary
Welcome to the Olympus Underwater Photography World! I have been a passionate professional underwater photographer and diving journalist for more than 45 years now. Underwater photography absolutely fascinates me as it is very special. The silence and the weightlessness you can feel underwater can only be experienced here and allows you to fully concentrate on your surroundings. For a very long time now I am diving and shooting with any brand I was able to get underwater equipment from. But my work as a trainer, mostly for newcomers, has made me especially enthusiastic about the Olympus Tough cameras. For me, they are the most flexible compact cameras to start underwater photography and I am always happy to help with tips and tricks for every newcomer!
