The specifications of the Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker action camera and more of its photos have been leaked online, as the device is preparing to become official within a few days.
You have read about the Stylus TG-Tracker on Camyx before. This name has been mentioned since the beginning of 2016. Everybody had hoped that the device would show up by the end of the first quarter or at least in early Q2.
However, the device got delayed. Thankfully, some information and a photo were leaked in recent weeks and now it is time for more Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker specs and photos. Additionally, a trusted source has confirmed that the device will be announced very soon.
Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker specs to include 4K video recording
The new action camera will feature a 1/2.3-inch-type BSI-CMOS image sensor with 7.2 megapixels. It will be capable of shooting 4K videos at up to 30fps and full HD videos at up to 60fps.
The leaked Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker specs list also tells us that the camera has a TruePic VII image processor in order to handle 4K videos. There is a built-in time-lapse photography mode along with a loop recording tool.
Trusted sources have revealed that the camera can focus on subjects located at a minimum distance of 20 centimeters and that it features a 1.3-inch LCD screen on its side. The lens has an angle of view of 204 degrees with a maximum aperture of f/2.
The camera also has temperature, GPS, orientation, acceleration, and pressure sensors, which are used as a “field sensor system” that will somehow be useful when recording action videos. Our guess is that the sensors will record a bunch of data in order to let people know how fast they were going and what forces they were experiencing when performing different activities.
We still do not know for sure that is that thing above the lens, but it does look like a big LED flash.
This action camera will become available by the end of June 2016
Olympus Stylus TG-Tracker specs list continues with is a lot of rugged features. The action camera is waterproof down to depths of 30 meters as well as dustproof for when you are in the desert.
It can withstand drops from a height of 2.1 meters, while surviving temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius. Additionally, it is crushproof to loads of about 100 kilogram-force. The camera is built to last, although it weighs only 180 grams with the battery and memory card included.
The device will be announced within a few days and will be released in late June 2016. Price details are unknown for now, but they will be confirmed when the camera becomes official.
On a side note, we have to say that now we are sure that the Olympus E-M1 Mark II will feature 4K video recording. It is highly unlikely that the Stylus TG-Tracker gets it, while the flagship OM-D camera does not. Keep an eye on Camyx for more information!
