Overview

Our take on the Olympus Teleconverter Lens Pack


Want more zoom from your Olympus TG-4 TG-3, or other earlier Tough Series camera? The TCON-01 teleconverter lens increases these cameras' optical zoom from 4X to 6.8X, so you can get in closer on your subjects. The TCON-01 is waterproof to depths of 40 feet, so you can shoot in the rain, the pool or the sea. The CLA-T01 adapter is included for easy connection to the camera.

Wonderful addition to an intuitive point and shoot camera.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Ive used teleconverters in the past, this seems to do its job as advertised. Suspect target market is for people who are using the TG4 as their primary camera. It helps.

Pros: Easy to use, boosts magnification

Cons: Not Waterproof! Like all teleconverters, disproportionate loss in depth of field.

Features

Overview: The Olympus Telephoto Tough Lens Pack contains the Tele Converter (TCON-T01) and the Converter Adapter (CLA-T01) in one package. Both items are needed to increase the optical zoom ratio for taking telephoto pictures on the Olympus Tough series cameras. Like the Tough Cameras, the TCON-T01 and CLA-T01 are waterproof to 40 feet.

TCON-T01: The Olympus TCON-T01 Tele Converter has a 6.8x magnification. With the CLA-T01 attached to the camera, the TCON-T01 simply screws into place. The TCON-T01's dimensions are 1.822" in diameter and 1.709" in length (1.976" with lens caps).

CLA-T01: The CLA-T01 Converter Adapter allows you to attach waterproof converters, such as the included TCON-T01 Tele Converter and the optional FCON-T01 Fisheye lens. The CLA-T01's dimensions are 1.779" in diameter and 0.356" in length (0.502" with lens caps).

Why did you buy this?

To increase the zoom on my Tg4 Olympus portable wifi camera. [ Jonathan  May 25, 2016 ]

I haven't tried it under water, but I have two thoughts as to why it wouldn't work. 1st, you tend to want to use wide angle lenses underwater as you will get much better clarity when you are closer to your subject. 2nd, you will get water between the camera and the lens since the converter and telephoto lens aren't sealed with rubber (they just twist into place).
