A WHOLE NEW ANGLE ON TOUGH.

A secluded beach. A trip to the zoo. The kids trying out new snowboards. Active lifestyles generate great photo ops – and there’s no better camera for capturing these special moments than the new TG-850. It’s super-rugged and waterproof, yet stylish enough for less “extreme” pursuits – like documenting your daughter’s first lacrosse goal. The TG-850 has a super-sharp wide-angle lens, a 180-degree swivel LCD monitor (selfie alert!) and high-def video capability. Quite simply, it’s a terrific all-around camera.

Olympus TG-850

Waterproof, Shockproof, Crushproof, Freezeproof* – Let’s Just Say It’s “Lifeproof”
Conditions can be a little rough when you live life outside. That’s why we engineered the TG-850 to be a very tough outdoor camera. Waterproof (to 33ft/10m), shockproof (to 7ft/2.1m), crushproof (to 220lbf/100kgf) and freezeproof (to 14°F/-10°C), the TG-850 is built to operate flawlessly in extreme conditions – which means you won’t have to worry about a little rain during a bike ride in the local park.

*When flip LCD is closed

The World’s First Rugged Camera with a Swivel LCD
A tilting LCD monitor makes it much easier to do things like taking shots from strange angles. But a 180-degree swivel monitor on a waterproof camera like the TG-850 also lets you shoot cool half-in-the-water shots of fish swimming by under a bright blue sky, or your goofy friend Mark pretending to be a fish. It also makes taking really good selfies a snap; in fact, if you mount it on your surfboard or mountain bike, you can find out what your “action face” looks like!

The Widest Lens of Any Rugged Camera
The TG-850’s super-wide 21mm (equivalent) lens captures 25% more of whatever you’re shooting than the 28mm versions on other rugged cameras. Your images will be more panoramic, and you don’t have to move backward to capture more of the scene – particularly useful when you’re standing on a cliff! You can also fit more friends into the selfies and group shots you’ll undoubtedly be taking to preserve the memories of your outdoor adventures.

On Top of Everything Else…Pro-quality Video
Mountable video cameras are great for, well, video – but they’re limited when it comes to still photography. The TG-850, on the other hand, offers the wide-ranging functionality of a robust digital camera and the ability to shoot full HD 60p video, twice as fast as standard 1080/30p. You get professional quality footage with amazing clarity that smoothly plays back fast action – and you can apply many of the same Art Filters found on Olympus’s more expensive cameras to achieve unusual effects.

Capture a Series of Photos with Timed Interval Shooting
Videos are obviously a great way to capture live action. But sometimes you want a series of dramatic stills instead. The TG-850’s interval shooting feature allows you to do just that. Shorter intervals are great for capturing each step of an action sequence, or you can set the camera for longer intervals and stitch the images together into a time-lapse movie (software required). You can even mount the camera on your bike or helmet for hands-free convenience.

Express Your Creativity with Art Filters
In case the unadulterated beauty of the great outdoors isn’t enough for you, the TG-850 offers an unmatched array of creative tools to enhance your photos and videos. Art Filters like Grainy Film, Pin Hole and Soft Focus can be applied right in the camera; no need to download your images to a computer for manipulation. You can also experiment with fun Magic Filters like Fisheye, Sparkle and Reflection, and Picture Filters – including Vivid, Muted and Monotone – that modify color saturation.

Olympus iHS Technology – Faster and Smarter
Combine a newly developed, powerful DSLR-quality image processor (TruePic™ VII) and a best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor, and you’ve got a camera that provides blazing fast autofocus, superb low-light performance and accurate subject and scene recognition (thanks to the enhanced iAUTO feature). It adds up to iHS – Intelligent, High Sensitivity, High Speed – and the TG-850 has it, offering dramatically improved image quality from a camera you can take to the ends of the earth – or to the pool party down the street.

Keep It Sharp with Dual Image Stabilization
Maybe your target – say, your friend Rachel trying out her new kayak – is flashing in and out of frame as she navigates the rapids. Maybe your hands are a little shaky after a sleepless night at the campsite. No worries…the TG-850’s sensor-shift image stabilization system, high ISO sensitivity and blink-of-an-eye shutter speeds work together seamlessly, enabling you to capture crisp, clear images even if the subject (or your camera) are moving.

I purchased this camera based on the reviews of the previous Olympus 830 model from Amazon, Consumer Reports, & various others sites being generally positive. There was no single water camera ( in the price range I wanted to pay) that had perfect reviews so I focused on finding, what I thought, was the camera with the fewest negative reviews & the 830 seemed to be the best choice but then the 850 just came out ...so I rolled the dice with newer 850 model.

I'm not a camera pro - just wanted a camera to take beach, snorkeling, swimming/pool,& camping trip photos. I received the camera the day before a spring break trip & it got a lot of usage. It was easy to use, had so many settings to capture a variety of different shots, & most importantly - took great photos. The colors were vibrant, clear, & focused. The snorkeling photos took a couple adjustments based on the lighting but once I was able to figure that out, pictures were very good. I'm fine with some of snorkeling pictures not turning out that great due to me moving, the fish moving, or the light not being right but the majority were great. I just kept taking a lot of pictures til I found the best way to capture the shot. The flip screen was cool, not used a lot, but was great for taking the underwater selfie or odd angle shot. It worked great taking zip lining pictures with fast moving targets in the sports mode and it also worked for taking just general pictures.
I saw reviews of some other underwater camera having issues with leaks & this was a major concern for me being it's an underwater camera. No issues with this one so far - I'll post back if I do. Overall - camera worked great & very happy with the 850

I own many cameras. In buying the TG-850 I hoped to get a "go everywhere" point-and-shoot that would do the same job as the Olympus Stylus Epic and Olympus XA 35mm cameras I've carried in the past. While I haven't snorkeled or gone kayaking in years I wanted a camera that I could confidently take with me while cycling without too much concern about exposure to the elements.

Something I think many people don't realize with "underwater" cameras is the level of care necessary to keep them functioning as such. Despite the fact that these modern digital "life-proof" cameras have only one sealed door for battery, media and I/O ports that is still their achilles heel. Any microscopic grain of sand or even a human hair can be enough to defeat the seal thus flooding one's camera with water; in the case of salt water the threat is even greater since it takes only a bit of moisture to completely foul the circuitry permanently. Since I am generally using this camera on dry land please view my review in that context.

Before buying this camera I compared it to the Fuji XP-200 (only had 1080i video, good but not great) the Sony TX-30 (touch screen only? yuck) the Olympus TG-630 (well reviewed, but hey there's one with a higher model number!!) and the Panasonic, the name of which escapes me at the moment. The TG-850 had 2 deal-breaking features that set it apart - the tilting LCD screen and the wide-angle zoom lens (a 21mm equivalent). These two features are excellent in tandem, if you've never used an articulated screen on a camera I suggest you try it, you'll find that you're able to get angles and compositions previously impossible. Since lens allows "zooming-out" to an ultra-wide angle you can shoot from a truly unique perspective.

I just received this camera a few days ago so I don't have a lot of experience with it, but I can say this:

For the price point, this is a great addition to our camera collection and I've been very happy with it so far. We appreciate picture quality and also own a DSLR, but because it's so expensive we're afraid to take it along on most of our vacations. So, after days of research we chose the TG-850 as a solid point-and-shoot that we're not afraid to get dirty, or wet. It was a little risky as a brand new model, so we based our decision on the earlier model and so far I have no complaints. It has the flexibility of other point-and-shoots with different scene settings (including some specifically for water and snow!), decent zoom, ability to record video, and while not exactly tiny, it easily fits in a large pocket or small bag. I especially appreciated the action setting (I have a toddler!), and the ability to take a burst of continuous shots at hi-speed. So far the only water shots I've taken were at a water park, so it hasn't been submerged for long lengths of time but it was dunked, splashed, and banged against concrete repeatedly for several hours and appears to have survived without a scratch. As expected, the picture quality is not as high as our other camera, but it's still very good and all of my 4x6 prints look great. Battery life lasted through a day and a half of constant shots, next time I will definitely recharge overnight before the next day of vacation so it doesn't run out on me. Overall, I'm very satisfied with our decision to purchase this camera and now we have a ton of fun vacation photos that we would not have otherwise.

Tip: Waterproof cameras are finicky things, as electronics and water generally do not mix well.
