OlympusOlympus Tough TG-850 All-weather digital camera : Olympus imaging has taken ruggedness to a complete new level with the stylish Tough TG-850 outdoor camera. The 16 megapixel outdoor camera combines tough performance with beautiful styling, a newly-developed 5x optical zoom lens (21-105mm) and a large 3-inch 460K dots tiltable monitor, to extend the range of photography features. The Olympus TG-850 all-weather camera is well-suited to tough environments - it is shock-proof to 2.1 metres, waterproof to 10 metres, crushproof to 100 kg, and can operate easily in temperatures as low as -10°C. The ultra wide angle lens is the widest in the tough compact camera class, while the monitor can be tilted through 180°.

Olympus TG-850 underwater photography
The Olympus TG-850 camera features make it particularly well-suited for underwater photography - when capturing semi-submerged shots, for instance, tilting the LCD through 90° eliminates the need for the photographer to dip underwater. The enlarged rear grip ensures easy handling, while the ultrafast auto-focusing system Fast autofocus and the TruePic VII image processor capability mean you always get your shot, in good quality. The Olympus outdoor camera also offers interval shooting, and is capable of taking smooth 60p Full HD movies.

The Olympus Tough TG-850 features a sporty and stylish design, incorporating soft surfaces and sharp lines, which combines with its tough performance to make it eminently adaptable. It’s an all-weather camera tough enough to go anywhere, whilst also offering the ease of handling you want when shooting street scenes. The 180° tiltable monitor is brilliant for 'selfies'. And the Olympus outdoor camera is able to use an optional Flash Air card (with wireless LAN function) allowing to connect the camera to a Wi-Fi enabled smartphone or Personal Computer and view or import images from the FlashAir card.

Essential camera features
The elements in the lens configuration use new glass materials that can be made thinner and more compact, for a Super HR lens with a high refractive index. Optical performance is maintained even at wide-angle settings, while the camera’s iHS technologies enable shots to be captured in all shooting conditions (max. ISO 6400). Camera shake is significantly reduced via a lens shift image stabilization mechanism, which also contributes to a more compact unit overall. The control incorporates the same lens shift technology found on D-SLR models. And the camera's 16 Megapixel BSI CMOS sensor combines with the next generation TruePic VII processor to get the very best out of the camera’s high-performance optics.

Recording Full HD movies
The Olympus TG-850 features Art Filters, including Pop Art and Soft Focus, allowing the user to get creative. It offers interval shooting (up to 99 frames, at a preset interval from 10 seconds to 60 minutes), and is also capable of producing smooth 60p Full HD movies or high-speed movies (HS 120fps with resolution 640x480, or HS 240fps with 320x240). The LCD monitor quickly reproduces fast-moving scenes, and in combination with FAST AF and 7 fps sequential shooting, this makes the camera well suited to shooting fleeting subjects, particularly outdoors where its tough performance comes into its own.

Olympus TG-850 accessories
A universal case that fits the lightweight aluminum camera body in 3 colour options (red, blue, black), designed with rugged use in mind. Its thick 1.5 mm silicon material protects against shocks, while the outer mesh design facilitates draining. The karabiner and stopper are plastic, chosen with saltwater environments in mind, and the neoprene inlet is similarly well-suited for waterfront use.
