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. From interval shooting – great for capturing each step of an action sequence, or stitching together a time-lapse movie (software required) – to Art, Magic and Picture filters, this camera’s FQ (Fun Quotient) is off the charts.

Best Bang for Your Buck

I must admit that I'm not the most delicate person. I went to Test this camera out, to see if the specs were right...they weren't... I was able to take pics, and video, with this camera in conditions ranging from -30C to +30C, dropped it from a second floor balcony (accidentally), took it sailing, to my friends wedding, took it scuba diving (went under the recommended limit of 10 m, to 12 m (PADI recorded dive)), took it into a pool.With each activity I pushed the limits, conventional digital cameras would shy away from.
To my amazement not only did the camera survive, it captured so many amazing moments.
Thank You Olympus for making such an amazing product!

Reliable, easy to use and tough.

I bought this camera for a our trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. I can't say enough good things about this little camera. Picture quality is great. I was able to use most of the features like the portrait, landscape, night scene (i used a small tripod),cuisine (very rich in colour) and even the sunset. I was able to get a video of the sunrise. The picture quality is good for me. Underwater shots were really good as well (went, snorkeling). Very sturdy and can take abuse, I dropped it a couple of times and still works just fine. I did notice that I already have a few scratches on the screen but it can be fixed easily. I want to keep memories and not worry about colors and blurriness and all that jazz and this camera surpassed my expectations and more. Plus the screen can be flip for selfies. Very handy as it has ultra wide. That is the one feature that I used a lot. I bought this camera when it was on sale but even at this price right now, i would still buy it. I highly recommend this camera.

Not Up to Par

I was replacing my Stylus 850SW because the lens got damaged with sand. This seemed like a good match as it was suggested by Olympus' costumer support. It did not live up to expectation for several reasons. First, there is no cover on the lens when it is not in use. That means it will probably not make it through my purse well enough a full summer of beach use. This is a huge negative for me. I never would have considered the camera had I known that it did not have this. Second, mine either has a damaged battery or a damaged battery compartment. Sometimes it turns on and sometimes it does not. I call tech support or they believe it is damaged in one of these ways. I will be returning the camera. Third, this camera it big and heavy. Its size coupled with the right hand controls makes this camera hard to use. If you use the left hand technique of flipping the camera over to use it, the shutter is hard to press with your thumb as it is small and set in a guard. I am so disappointed with this camera.

Excellent On-The-Go Camera

Finally a camera that will stand up to going along for the ride. I have no intention of throwing this thing around or submerging it but if it's built for being submerged it should easily survive some rain and it should be able to handle bouncing around in my glovebox.

The menu system is the easiest I've ever used and the camera takes really great pictures in almost every condition I've tried so far. Works in low light without flash better than any other as well. Focus seems acceptable and the optical zoom is fine for my use. Macro is amazing!

If expectations don't include DSLR performance and you need a durable camera to take on vacation or have at hand wherever you go this little gem will do the job. For those who want more than a smart phone pic this camera will fit the bill.

Price, build quality, features, ease of use, battery longevity, and results make this an outstanding choice for a versatile point and shoot that includes some manual control but very nice auto operation as well. I'm very impressed and pleased with my purchase.

Great take anywhere camera

Only had this camera a week, but am very impressed and pleased. First images were great. I bought to be my take anywhere camera irrespective of the weather. Have no intention of taking it underwater. I love the 21mm wide setting and the flip screen is great! Typical solid Olympus build.

great for the price.

Still getting use to the settings and "use" of this digital camera. There are some areas I'm learning to set for certain type of shots, but overall I'm very impressed of the outcome of the clarity and definition of the picture. Haven't tried the movie/streaming side yet, but I'm quite sure that is just as clear. Also, the support is far more helpful than most. They respond quickly, and will give you step by step on how to according to your question(s). This impresses me, because most places just lose in this aspect anymore.

You want good pictures ? seek another camera

It badly decides when ti use the flash or not, you cannot take a normal picture overriding the flash preset ( on iAuto you can set auto or disable) i cannot find any reason in my mind why the designers don't let me choose to force the flash ... what are they thinking ????
The viewing angle of the screen is +/- 10 degrees to left/right
Very good underwater pictures (unexplainably the flash sometimes decides to shoot ruining the photos ... whatever)
Luckily may be a software update to take care of that ... unluckily don't think Olympus care

- - - -
Note from Olympus:
The Flash can be forced in P mode (which is similar to Auto but with more options).

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!

After two I have given up!

This camera would be a great "tough" option for someone if it were really that tough! The first camera i received from olympus was a refurbished one bought here. Camera came broke and scratched right out of the box! It was stuck in one of the modes. You could have played with the dial and maybe it would have changed modes but whats this 5 point inspection program they follow? Returning the camera now. We then bought the same one from a local big box store and took it with us to grand turk for some snorkeling fun. Thinking that it was just a malfunction from the first refurbished one this "new" one must be better. Only looked better and that's it. 15 min. in our snorkeling it started messing up. Stuck in one mode and buttons not working. After drying it out we found water spots not only on our pictures but in the camera lens? Wish this could have worked out. Love the wide angle lens and selfie feature but if it can't take water then its not for us! I even question the quality of their other products as well now.
