CONSIDER THINGS FROM A NEW ANGLE


A tilting LCD monitor makes it much easier to do things like taking shots from unusual angles. But a 180-degree flip LCD on a waterproof camera like the TG-850 also lets you shoot cool half-in-the-water shots, and makes taking really good selfies a snap – even when the camera is mounted on your bike or board.

THE WIDEST LENS ON 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 can fit more friends into the group shots you’ll undoubtedly be taking to document your outdoor adventures.

SPEED & SMARTS


Combine a powerful DSLR-quality TruePic VII image processor and a best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor, and you’ve got a camera that provides blazing fast autofocus, superb low-light performance and quick start-up. The TG-850 also enables you to shoot Full HD 60p video, twice as fast as standard 1080/30p, for amazing clarity that smoothly plays back fast action.

EXTREMELY HIGH FUN QUOTIENT


In case the pristine beauty of nature isn’t enough, the TG-850 offers an unmatched array of creative tools to enhance your photos and videos.

Great, sharp pictures

We just recently replaced our old Olympus camera that we had for 15 years. Our 5 year old managed to break it but it had been a great camera. This new Olympus seems to be an even better camera, so far. The pictures are sharper and I like that it has a rechargeable battery since the old one used up batteries really fast. It is easy to use and convenient to carry anywhere. If it lasts as long as my old Olympus, I will be VERY happy!

Best camera ever had!

That is my second tough camera of Olympus and it is still the best camera on the market! The flip screen is so perfect for selfies and underwater pictures. The automatic mode takes every pictures perfectly and choose the right mode for you. The night mode is so much better (more light sensitive) than my old one and the macro is even better since you can shot at 1 cm of your subject! It's so perfect for vacation!

Totally Impressed

I bought this camera to replace my Tough-9000 which was lost during a trip. While researching replacements, the TG-850 was available for pre-order. So, I decided to wait for the new toy. For a point and shoot camera... it takes some awesome pictures! I love the wider angle of a lens... great for scenic shots... I love taking pictures of sunsets... sunrises... and mountains... Beautiful pictures. I also played with the super macro option last weekend. Wow! Was I ever able to get up close, and the stabilization is wonderful. I know I was shaking pretty good, and the picture was totally in focus. The panoramic option is also extremely easy to use... I love it! So far... since it is a rugged camera... I carry it in my glove box and in my pocket. The display screen is starting to get scratched.

Perfect

I am extremely impressed with the TG-850. I took many shots of the same scene experimenting with all the modes and features before going on vacation. The results were outstanding. I purchased the TG-850 as an upgrade from the TG-310 (which is also a phenomenal camera) because there are more functions with the TG-850, specifically continuous shooting. Again, outstanding photos and movies, taken from the sky, on land, and below water. I really appreciate how fast the camera is ready to shoot when turning it on. Battery life is also impressive. I snapped off well over 300 shots, which included on's/off's and photo reviews with one charge. I Love this camera.

YOU WANT IT INDESTRUCTIBLE? YOU GOT IT.

For me - it was less about quality picture taking. More about durability and a wide angle lens. I film squash with it one day, then go out a take some pretty good quality surfing video. I've dropped it more times then I can count since I bought it, and not a dent nor a scratch on it. LOVE THE INFLATABLE WRIST THINGY, that keeps it afloat. Great durability, one of the best wide lens on the market for a compact. Ain't no DSLR quality, but I love it.

Best Camera ever

I just got this camera for a trip to Los Cabos, in Baja California, and it was great not one single problem with this great camera. We went from pool water to the Ocean and had not one thing go wrong with this camera . We also had it under the blazing Cabo sun and then back in the salt water again and under the sea with some of the best pictures ever. I was able to download all of my wonderful pictures of family and fish without a problem. I love this little camera and will be taking it on my next adventure.

Perfect performance!

I bought this for my daughter's college graduation present. Olympus fulfilled the order right away. The 16MP photos are amazing. Optional 8MP photos are as well. This cameras first mission was to a 2 week vacation in China, where, the upcoming event were unknown. It went from sea level at 100 degrees F, and under water, to above the snow line on the mountains. Flawless performance! So easy and compact, it is perfect. The whole trip was captured and recorded for the family to view!

Good camera except for the excessive noise reduction.

Sadly the noise reduction is so aggressive it ruins the quality of the image. Colour rendition is good. The wide angle "21 mm" lens is very good.
If you are a pixel peeper you will be disappointed. If you just want snapshots this may be a good choice.

Dissappointed

This is my 2nd Olympus Tough camera, I am replacing the 1030. I was so excited to use the camera on a recent cruise, however I was quickly dissappointed when taking pictures at dinner and all the shots were blurry and dark. The pictures we took during the day were washed out and you couldn't see the blue sky and water behind us. I'm hoping there was just a problem with the camera that was sent to me becuase I love the Tough carmeras. I'm going to try a different model and hope for better results. I did love the flip screen, it made taking pictures fun and easy.

Seek other options.

While the picture quality is fine the reason for buying this camera was for the waterproof capability and the tough build. Problem is, it is virtually impossible to see the display in the water or in the sunlight outdoors. We took about a thousand (blind pictures) in Belize while snorkeling. We could only make out the general surroundings unless the sun was completely hidden, making the zoom virtually impossible to use effectively. I've owned several digital cameras and have never had this severe of an issue with the display. A substantial bummer at $250.00 not to mention the inability to use the camera based on how it is marketed. Will probably ignore Olympus products in the future if this is not addressed.
