Lifeproof

LIFEPROOF

Waterproof 33ft/10m
The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus’ long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-830iHS is completely waterproof down to a depth of 33ft. Even on land, the TG-830iHS ensures that you’ll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.

Shockproof 6.8ft/2.1m
The shockproof structure of the TG-830 iHS ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.

Crushproof 220lbf/100kgf
No case, no problem! With a rugged body and reinforced LCD, the TG-830 iHS withstands up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.

Freezeproof 14°F/-10°C
Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-830iHS is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-830 iHS by your side, you’ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.

Dustproof
Life gets dirty. Between dusty fields and muddy trails, sometimes your camera doesn’t stay as pristine as you’d like it to. But even in less-than-spotless environments,the fine protective sealing of the TG-830 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.

EXTREME VERSATILITY


GPS & e.Compass
The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-830 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-830 iHS is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Olympus Viewer 3, Google Earth and Picasa.

Automatic Underwater Balance
The Olympus TG-830 iHS boasts 4 different underwater scene modes -- Underwater Snapshot, Underwater Wide 1, Underwater Wide 2 and Underwater Macro -- each carefully calibrated to allow for optimal color balance, exposure and flash so you automatically get the best results. Beautiful underwater photos made simpler.

LED Illuminator

LED Illuminator
An LED Illuminator is like a mini-flashlight on the front of the camera to enhance focus and exposure for macro shooting – great for underwater close-ups where light is scarce. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.

Magic Art Filters
Express your creativity with 11 different special effects for your photos and HD videos. Olympus’ Magic Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new and unexpected moods ranging from the excited to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Dramatic and Fragmented. (Some effects apply only to still photos. Effects may reduce image size.)

We purchased two of these (in different colors) -- one from Amazon, another one from Walmart. The wallyworld one already went back. They both have the same problem. The video (while very high quality) has an issue with the audio. There is a constant annoying hammering noise in the background of every video, especially when panning. It doesn't seem as loud when keeping the camera still, but move it a little and you will hear the clicking of the little guy with the jackhammer who apparently lives inside. We've tried playing with the settings, changing everything possible, and problem still remains. So it has nothing to do with settings, the battery, or even the SD card. This is definitely a defect in the Olympus TG-830 cameras. It is such a shame too, because the photos are very good, and the video (aside from the audio) is very good as well. I also loved the fact that it is a waterproof camera that is built to be rugged. I just wish the video was better on it. Maybe they will fix this in the next version. If you plan on only taking photos, you would be happy with this camera. But I would not recommend this camera to anyone who wants to capture their priceless memories onto video (at least not if you want audio to go with it!).

UPDATE: 8/14/13 - After returning the defective ones to Amazon and Walmart, we ended up purchasing one from our local professional camera shop. I had the chance to actually test drive it before buying. And lo and behold, no hammering noise in the video!!! So we finally got a good one. I guess it just depends on where you buy it and which lot they received. After using this camera on vacation, we love it!!! It takes great photos, underwater and above. The video is also very good (both underwater and above).

This is a great camera for fun outside activities. It was used in salt water, pool water, waterfalls, and the beach. You can take it everywhere with you during a vacation or outing without worrying about it breaking. I had it in my damp swimsuit pocket for hours and it worked great every time I took it out to snap off a picture. It worked well covered in sand, tanning lotion and dry salt Crystals.

It was odd to rinse the camera off in the sink to clean it. I suggest this is done and the camera left to dry before you open any of the compartments. Also be sure to clean the rubber seals well when you re close the doors. The battery life is enough to keep you shooting pictures for the day.

The camera is heavy, but it is designed to be rugged. The indoor and low light picture quality is grainy. The Auto setting has trouble triggering the flash.

In all this camera is perfect for an out door camera. It will go on all your adventures and serve you well.

When I bought this I was mostly looking for an alternative to the Hero, mainly because I didn't want 180° fish-eye, and wanted something with more versatility than just dedicated use, attached to my helmet. When I received it and started looking into the operation of the camera, trying things out as I went, I was quite pleasantly surprised with the features, quality, speed, and versatility.

It DOESN'T come with an SD card, which is probably good since I always replace the cheap cards with something of size and speed that works for me. I bought a SanDisk Extreme 32 GB for it, and it works great! The camera uses internal memory for burst mode, then transfers to the SD card, transparent to the user. It records 1080 HD at 60 frames/ second in normal mode, but if using the 120 FPS mode to create slowmo, it rolls back to 720P HD.

There are built-in modes that provide color and other corrections for underwater shots, snow (very bright) conditions, and many others, including night pix. The optical image stabilization works very well for me since I have a twitchy hands. I look forward to my vacation to try out the camera as a helmet cam. It weights in just under 8 ounces.

If you want a dedicated camera designed for sports activities, then the Hero 3 Black would probably be better (especially for diving!), but at $400, the Hero is a significant investment. This camera will do 90% of the job at 70% of the cost, with the added benefits that come with a small Olympus.

Picture quality is outstanding and movies are awesome.

This is a preliminary review. After my vacation where I plan to use it as a helmet cam while mountain biking and river rafting in Moab, UT, I'll update this with any issues I've uncovered. If there are none, then this review will stand, with a 5 star rating.

I had thought about looking around at a rugged camera after going on a canoe trip. I was looking around at the Fuji Film and the Nikon models and they seemed pretty good. I had loved the look of the Olympus TG-2 but it is a bit pricey. I also liked that the TG-2 had a f/2.0 aperture which is miles ahead of pretty much any other rugged camera.

I looked at what else Olympus had and the TG 830 looked pretty good, and was priced well too. I ended up choosing it over the TG-2 and the other cameras because it has the best zoom (5x optical, 10x SR zoom), It has the most video feature including 720p 120fps, 60I 1080p, and some other fun shooting modes. It if I saw correctly can take the fastest burst shots, as well as the functioning, shot to shot etc speed seemed to be as fast or faster than the others.

So now that I have it i'm very satisfied. The controls are very easy to use (MUCH easier than my previous canon 520hs).Controlling the settings on the camera is very straight forward and I havn't really had to question anything at all.. The Camera feels a bit awkward in the hand, it seems a bit large but I think it is just me getting used to it.

Video modes I really love, firstly the 720p 120fps is awesome and fun to use. However one drawback is the picture darkens down in 120/240fps mode and with the low aperture it makes it hard to get a good video without some decent light (This is mostly true for every high speed video camera though). There is also the ability to take photos in the video, and a mode that automatically takes photos at a set interval during shooting.

It has the magic art filters which some are honestly kind of fun I have to admit.
