AOI UMG-01 LCD Magnifier for Olympus Compact Camera Housings Review





This is the AOI UMG-01 LCD Screen Magnifier for Olympus Compact Housings. This is the best accessory we’ve seen yet for the Olympus TG-4 & Olympus TG-5 system because it cuts out annoying screen glare in bright water and it allows you to get a large, sharp magnified image from the camera’s LCD screen.

The key feature here is that it will allow you to actually see the screen in bright conditions! With this loupe-style viewfinder you can cut out the glare that you’ve probably experienced when shooting in water with lots of sunlight. This is a massive benefit since you’ll actually be able to see your images in detail as you shoot them, especially when snorkeling or working close to the surface.







The magnified screen makes shooting the Olympus TG-5 in the Olympus PT-058 Housing way easier, specifically in super macro which is what that camera does best. This is great for composing your shots and reviewing your images to make sure the precise focal point that you’re after is tack-sharp.







The magnifier snaps directly and securely on to the back of the housing, replacing the existing screen hood. You can adjust the focal length of the eyepiece so that you can get it dialed in exactly to where your eyes focus best. It’s also fully tethered to the housing, even the lens cap, so it won’t go floating off on you.
