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 Ð and thereÕs no better camera for capturing these special moments than the new TG-850. ItÕs super-rugged and waterproof, yet stylish enough for less ÒextremeÓ pursuits Ð like documenting your daughterÕs first lacrosse goal. The TG-850 has a super-sharp wide-angle lens, a 180-degree flip LCD monitor (selfie alert!) and high-def video capability. Quite simply, itÕs a terrific all-around camera.
Waterproof, Shockproof, Crushproof, Freezeproof Ð LetÕs Just Say ItÕs ÒLifeproofÓ
Conditions can be a little rough when you live life outside. ThatÕs 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 Ð which means you wonÕt have to worry about a little rain during a bike ride in the local park.
The WorldÕs First Rugged Camera with a Flip LCD
A tilting LCD monitor makes it much easier to do things like taking shots from strange angles. But a 180-degree flip 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 Òaction faceÓ looks like!
The Widest Lens of Any Rugged Camera
The TG-850Õs super-wide 21mm (equivalent) lens captures 25% more of whatever youÕre shooting than the 28mm versions on other rugged cameras. Your images will be more panoramic, and you donÕt have to move backward to capture more of the scene Ð particularly useful when youÕre standing on a cliff! You can also fit more friends into the selfies and group shots youÕll undoubtedly be taking to preserve the memories of your outdoor adventures.
On Top of Everything ElseÉPro-quality Video
Mountable video cameras are great for, well, video Ð but theyÕre 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 Ð and you can apply many of the same Art Filters found on OlympusÕs 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-850Õs 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 isnÕt 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 Ð including Vivid, Muted and Monotone Ð that modify color saturation.
Olympus iHS Technology Ð Faster and Smarter
Combine a newly developed, powerful DSLR-quality image processor (TruePicª VII) and a best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor, and youÕve 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 Ð Intelligent, High Sensitivity, High Speed Ð and the TG-850 has it, offering dramatically improved image quality from a camera you can take to the ends of the earth Ð or to the pool party down the street.
Keep It Sharp with Dual Image Stabilization
Maybe your target Ð say, your friend Rachel trying out her new kayak Ð 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 worriesÉthe TG-850Õs lens-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.
