Olympus TG-850 Stylus Tough Digital Camera

Rugged Camera Adds 21mm Super Wide-Angle Lens and Flip LCD

Olympus announced the TOUGH STYLUS TG-850, an advanced rugged compact camera for challenging environments. It offers a wide-angle 21-105mm 5x optical zoom lens (the widest lens of any rugged camera) plus a 180° flip LCD monitor and shockproof, waterproof, dustproof, crushproof and freeze proof construction.

The TG-850’s super wide-angle zoom lens with redesigned lens configuration makes it thinner and more compact, yet able to maintain brilliant optical performance even at its widest angle. The high-performance optics are enhanced by the combination of a 16-megapixel back-lit CMOS sensor and next-generation True-Pic VII processor to capture superb, noise-free images and Full HD 60p video no matter what the lighting or shooting conditions.

Olympus TOUGH STYLUS TG-850 Digital Camera Flip LCD

Its newly designed, sleek and stylish tough body features the large 3-inch, high-resolution 460,000-dot flip LCD, yet retains its rugged durability: waterproof down to 33 feet (10m), shockproof from seven feet (2.1m), crushproof up to 220 pounds (100kgf), freezeproof down to 14° F (-10°C) and dustproof. The combination of the 180° flip LCD and the wide-angle lens make it particularly well suited to half underwater photography, self-portraits, and monitoring. When capturing semi-submerged shots, for instance, users can simply tilt the LCD 90° to eliminate the need to dip underwater. And for self-portraits, tilt the screen up to the full 180° and get the entire group and/or landscape into the shot. Paired with the adjustable self timer and 99-frame intervelometer, the TG-850 is a perfect companion for action shots – and video recording – when mounted on your bike, surf board or helmet.

The STYLUS TG-850 captures video with natural motion in new smooth 60p recording at 60 frames per second in full HD (1080) and high-speed recording (HS120fps with resolution of 640×480, or HS240fps with 320×240). The Multi-Motion Movie image stabilization compensates for blurring that occurs when shooting video while walking or panning across a scene.

The combination of the FAST AF, 7.1 fps sequential shooting, an enlarged grip for easy handling and a lens-shift image stabilization mechanism — the same technology found on interchangeable lens cameras — helps users to capture all the fleeting outdoor action in crisp detail. The STYLUS TG-850 expands the user’s creative potential with eleven Art Filters, several advanced shooting modes and interval shooting of up to 99 frames at preset intervals from 10 seconds to 60 minutes.

Users can easily share their images on their social networks using the Olympus Image Share smartphone app via the optional Toshiba FlashAir SDHC card.
