Underwater Housing and OM System Tough TG-7 Camera Kit
If you want to travel with a system that's extremely small and lightweight, the OM System Tough TG-7 with Ikelite ULTRAcompact Underwater Housing is a perfect choice.
The Olympus camera brand was sold in 2020 and rebranded as OM System. The newly formed company is committed to building on the strengths of the Olympus brand. In 2023, they introduced the Tough TG-7.
The TG-7 has a bright 25-100mm mid-range zoom lens and a high-speed back-lit CMOS image sensor for excellent performance in low-light settings. If you love to hunt down the small stuff, you'll find that the TG-7's microscope mode is among the best macro options available underwater right now. This camera is capable of macro close-up images that are as good as if not better than expensive mirrorless cameras.
When you want to explore wide angle photography, you'll be glad to have the only underwater housing that supports use of the incredible FCON-T02 Fisheye Lens. Just swap out the flat port for the optional Dome Port and gain the ability to go from macro to wide angle on the same dive. The FCON-T02 with Dome Port are super lightweight and allow full zoom through at the touch of a button. This combination makes it easy to shoot split shots (half-in, half out of the water), which can be difficult or impossible with external wide angle lenses.
The TG-7 supports ultra HD 4K video and RAW image capture, which is a powerful tool for post-dive color corrections using either Adobe Lightroom or the included software. The TG-7 is waterproofed to 50' (15.2m) even without a housing, which makes set-up a little less stress-inducing.
