Olympus’ new 4K action cam is seriously impressive

Olympus has set its sights on the action cam market with a new 4K camera that might just have GoPro worried.

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker comes with a ton of built-in sensors, waterproofing, dustproofing, and even crushproofing.

Starting with the sensors, the Tough TG-Tracker features a GPS radio, a barometric pressure sensor, temperature sensor, compass, and accelerometer, all built-in.

That makes it a perfect option for all manner of intrepid photographer, from divers to anthropologists.

The camera also comes with a tilting LCD screen, which allows you to overlay data from the various sensors on the footage you’ve shot.

Aside from the sensors, the TG-Tracker also comes with an impressive set of protective features.

It’s waterproof up to 100 feet, crushproof up to 220 pounds of force, shockproof for falls of up to 7 feet, and freezeproof for temperatures as low as 14 degrees farenheit (-10 Celsius).

And when it comes to the actual camera, the specs are similarly exciting.

As well as being able to shoot in 4K, the TG-Tracker comes with an 8MP 1/2.3-inch sensor and features a surprisingly wide 204-degree lens.

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-Tracker will be available in June for $349 (around £240).
