Olympus Tough TG-820 digital camera : On coral reefs, rock faces or adventure playgrounds, picture 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 image quality from a camera with a worry-free guarantee. Of course, the Olympus TG-820 digital compact camera is also waterproof, shockproof and freeze proof, the Tough TG-820 is even crushproof to a weight of 100kg. Olympus has ensured the TG-820 is no less robust than its predecessor, what is different is iHS. The Olympus TG-820 camera is immediately available for a suggested retail price of €279.|
Olympus TG-820 Tough all-weather camera
The Olympus Tough TG-820 outdoor camera is designed for people who take sport to the limit. It can handle just about anything you can throw at it. Literally. It’s crushproof to a force of 100kg, waterproof to a depth of 10m, shockproof to a height of 2m and freeze proof to -10°C. In addition to the sophisticated Olympus engineering that makes those stats possible, the new Tough camera is packed with clever features that make it easier to get great pictures outside. Tap Control Mode is typically thoughtful. It lets you operate the LCD display of the Olympus TG-820 camera when you’re wearing gloves simply by tapping or tilting the casing.
Olympus Tough TG-820 with iHS technology
The new iHS technologies (Intelligence, High Sensitivity and High Speed) incorporated into the Olympus TG-820 camera make 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. The combination of advanced components means even people with an action-packed lifestyle can capture photos and Full HD movies to be proud of, no matter how fast their subject is moving nor how poor the light.

With its high sensitivity and low noise capability, iHS powers a number of new Olympus camera features that take all the work out of capturing difficult pictures. Like a blazing quick autofocus and HDR Backlight adjustment that takes a collage of separate photos and blends them into one perfectly exposed image when you’re shooting against the light. Or Multi-Motion Movie IS that lets you record virtually blur-free movies even when you’re moving yourself. The lens on the Olympus Tough TG-820 offers the flexibility to pull out wide or zoom in close for amazing action close-ups.
