The NA-TG6 Housing for the Olympus Tough TG-5, TG-6
With M52 Mount
Also available: 17816 NA-TG6 Housing ~with Bayonet Mount to use with WWL-C
The Olympus Tough TG-5 and TG-6 compact cameras have earned the right to be called tough. They are designed to withstand harsh conditions and everyday mishaps. The lens has even been sealed with double-pane glass to prevent fogging and condensation. Olympus didn't sacrifice image quality to build a robust camera. A tough camera deserves an even tougher housing. The NA-TG5 housing supports both the TG-5 and TG-6 cameras. The cameras are rated to be waterproof down to 15m/50ft without a housing, but with the Nauticam NA-TG5 housing, they are capable of producing images all the way down to a whopping 100m or 330 feet!

Olympus Tough TG-5/TG-6
The TG-5 and TG-6 share a 12MP BSI CMOS Sensor with excellent low light performance and a TruePic VIII processor. That is the same processor found in the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II and allows the camera to shoot up to 20fps.
Video features include 4K 30p and FHD 120fps high speed video and Manual Focus with Focus Peaking. The unique microscope mode gives the TG-5 the highest macro reproduction ratio of any camera currently on the market. The TG-6 has a specific underwater macro and microscope modes as well as white balance options that correspond to various depth ranges.
The NA-TG-5 Housing
The NA-TG5 brings legendary Nauticam durability and ergonomics to the Olympus TG-5 and TG-6. The milled aluminum housing incorporates features pioneered in the SLR, mirrorless and digital cinema lines. All of the camera controls are clearly labeled, and the video record button is easily identified by shape and color.
The proven rotary locking latch makes closing the housing simple and secure. The integrated thumb grip and sculpted shutter button make handling the housing intuitive and comfortable.
The NA-TG5 comes with handle brackets and a shutter release extension for users that wish to use the optional handles and trays.
Other housing features include 2 fiber optic ports, easy access zoom lever, a 52mm threaded mount for auxiliary lenses, scratch resistant rear window, M10 threaded hole and cold shoe attachment point.
TG-6 Underwater-specific Modes
The TG-6's underwater modes have received a lot of attention from Olympus. There are now underwater-specific macro (think small fish) and microscope modes. There are also now depth-range specific white balances for wide angle. Underwater shallow, mid-range and deep correspond to 0-10' for shallow, 10-50' for mid-range and 50'+ for deep.
When using the TG-5 outside of microscope mode, exceptional macro images can still be achieved using the Nauticam CMC-1 magnifying optic which can be used between 28-77mm equivalent focal lengths.
Housing Locking Latch
The secure single rotating housing latch opens the housing back allowing for quick and easy battery or media changes.
Drop In Design
The TG-5, TG-6 drop right into the NA-TG5 housing with no tray or buttons/levers to preset while ensuring proper alignment regardless of depth.
M52 Threaded Port
The NA-TG5 features an M52 threaded port allowing the attachment of accessory optics with the use of the Nauticam M52 to M67 adapter.
Take full advantage of the TG-5 and TG-6's microscope mode with this ring-flash style diffuser. This diffuser attaches to the integrated fiber optic ports and creates a ring-flash effect, great for close-in macro shooting.
