iHS makes it possible to capture perfect pictures despite the lousy conditions outdoor lovers and extreme sports junkies often have to contend when they’re using their digital camera. iHS harnesses the power of a new 12 Megapixel backlit CMOS image sensor and the TruePic VI image processor (originally developed for Olympus SLR cameras) to dramatically improve low-light performance, speed up camera response and enhance scene and subject recognition. This transforms results with fast-moving subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots.

On coral reefs, rock faces or adventure playgrounds, image quality has often been the second priority. Whether busy parent or adrenalin junky, most people are just happy if their camera gets home in one piece. But for new Olympus Tough camera owners it’s different. They can have both: outstanding picture quality from a camera with a worry-free guarantee. Of course, as the first-ever manufacturer to deliver tough cameras, Olympus has ensured the Tough TG-620 is no less robust than its predecessor.
