Olympus TG-620 iHS Digital Camera

Item #: TG-620 | Grades K-12

When you work with kids, you are just happy if the camera makes it to the end of the day in one piece, which means you sacrifice image quality for durability. But the TG-620 offers both: outstanding image quality in a stylish yet ultra-durable body. It has advanced technology to shoot crisp, clear photos – Full HD videos in 1080p, too – even when light is scarce or your subjects are in motion. Use the 5x Optical Zoom and 10x Super-Resolution Zoom to get close to the action with amazing clarity. Constructed to be Waterproof, Freezeproof, Shockproof and Dustproof, this camera can keep up with your life on the go without sacrificing style or performance. The Olympus TG-620 iHS: Style, Strength, and Serious Image Quality.


A powerful, DSLR–quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom.



The TG-620 iHS crushes the notion that cameras are easily damaged by water and humidity. The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus’ long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-620 iHS is completely waterproof down to a new depth of 16ft. Even on land, the TG-620 iHS ensures that you’ll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.


The shockproof structure of the TG-620 iHS ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.


Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-620 iHS is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-620 iHS by your side, you’ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.


Life gets dirty. Between dusty fields and muddy trails, sometimes your camera doesn’t stay as pristine as you’d like it to. But even in less-than-spotless environments, the fine protective sealing of the TG-620 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.


A simple one-touch button allows you to record videos with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a breeze.


Shoot like a pro. With high-speed burst shooting, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence at the touch of a button.



A 5x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens captures even more of your subject into each shot. The inter-folded lens does not protrude from the camera so it is further protected from harsh conditions.


A TruePic VI Image Processor, first developed for professional SLRs, knows precisely how to deliver true-to-life color, the sharpest details, and less noise.


Captures three images and stitches them together to create one amazing panoramic picture by simply pressing the shutter button and slowly panning across a panoramic scene.
