I know this is not an MFT camera. But the new TG-Tracker action camera is certainly a key product from Olympus that could help their imaging business as a whole. The action camera market is bigger than the “classic” compact camera market. And if Olympus will manage to have some success the MFT department will certainly indirectly benefit from it (sharing research costs and so).
So let’s take a closer look the the new TG-Tracker:
At a a glance:
A full detailed overview of what can be done with the action camera can be seen on GetOlympus (Click here). What I noticed is:
– The camera hasa LCD screen (and beats most of the competition here)
– Unlike most of the competition the camera does not need a protective housing (cool!)
– The camera is cheaper than the competition
– The camera is smaller than it looks on the product photos (just check otu the videos below)
– The camera can be controlled via smartphone and is compatible with many nice accessories
My two cent on the TG-TRacker:
It has the potential to be one of the best products Olympsu has ever made!
