About Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850


Want a compact camera that’s as tough as you? The OLYMPUS TG-850 DIGITAL CAMERA, BLACK is waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, and freezeproof to 33 feet, 7 feet, 220 pounds, and down to 14 degrees respectively. If that’s not tough enough for you, then your next camera purchase should include a Kevlar vest and a submersible.

Product Highlights
  • But who needs a submersible when you have a camera as well suited to video as the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850? Here you’ll find full 1080p HD and high-speed recording that makes your footage pop. Go ahead and get that first person action video from your day surfing – this Olympus waterproof camera will keep up. And the additional floating foam strap will keep it up above the water if you drop it.
  • The fast autofocus ensures that no matter what video you’re taking or no matter what subject, you’ll have a responsive focus for consistent footage. It just begs to go skydiving with you!
  • 11 art filters mean that the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850 offers plenty of creative options for professional and amateur photographers alike.

With the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850 compact digital camera, you certainly don’t need to wait for the weather to pass any longer.



At Adorama, we’re sure that many photographers are pretty tough. But it’s rare to come across a compact camera that could be described as “tough.” Fortunately, cameras that match your toughness do exist, and they go by names like the OLYMPUS TG-850 DIGITAL CAMERA, BLACK. This durable compact camera isn’t just about taking a licking, though—it’s also about taking one heck of a picture. That may be due to variables like a 5x zoom lens that starts at 21mm (35mm equivalent), which is the widest of any ruggedized camera. Or it may be due to the fancy viewfinder, a 3-inch LCD monitor that can flip like a politician—up to 180 degrees. If you want a camera that’s capable of taking a lick or two while also taking great pictures all the while, this Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850 Digital Camera is for you.

  • Waterproof: Certainly a camera that has “tough” in its very name has to be waterproof? Luckily, the rugged features of the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850 leave no room for doubt. Waterproof down to 33 feet, this camera is able to handle tough conditions from rainy storms to, well, water itself. That’s essential, of course, for underwater photographers—but it’s also a great feature to have for anyone who doesn’t believe in the concept of “staying inside on a rainy day.”
  • World-proof. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. But what else can we say when the camera is shockproof from 7 feet, crushproof under a weight of up to 220 pounds, freezeproof down to 14 degrees, and even dust proof? Sure, there are ways you could conceivably destroy the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-3, but it will be much harder than you think. And after you see the pictures, why would you even want to bother trying?
  • Stunning video thanks to shooting up to 60 fps in 1080 HD. High speed recording at 120 fps is also available. That’s good, because the Olympus Stylus TOUGH TG-850 is so durable that you’ll be able to use it in an entire range of situations without regard to physical barriers that most cameras simply can’t take—and you’ll want to be able to capture those beautiful moments on video. This Olympus won’t only take quality video, but it will take consistent video, minimizing blurring and color aberrations while providing you with footage you can use time and time again.
  • Any photographer knows that in order to do everything we just mentioned, you’ll need consistent autofocus to make it all work. Here you’ll find a fast, smooth autofocus capable of handling a variety of zoom levels and even video footage, which means you’ll never have to restrict yourself to still photography. And go ahead – take this camera out for some action video. It will stand up to those other brand names getting all the attention right now.
  • Get creative with some 11 art filters, or an intervalometer that can shoot up to 99 frames at intervals of 10 seconds to 60 minutes. There are virtually no limits to what you can do with one of these cameras in hand—even if it’s a rainy day.

When your camera can handle the cold, the rain, the water, the dust, and even some heavy crushing, you’ll have no more excuses to stay inside. If you want to take your photography mobile, this Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 Digital Compact Camera is the way to go.


From the Manufacturer
Olympus Tough Stylus TG-850

If you are looking for a compact camera that will deliver outstanding action video and still photography in nearly any extreme condition, the Olympus Tough Stylus TG-850 is an outstanding choice. It has an upgraded 5x zoom lens that starts at 21mm (35mm equivalent), which is the widest of any ruggedized camera. Also new is a 3-inch, 460k dot resolution LCD monitor that flips up 180 degrees, so you can do dramatic action selfies in extreme conditions. You can also more easily shoot "half submerged" images showing half above water and half underwater scenes using this feature.

• Waterproof down to 33 feet
• Shockproof from 7 feet
• Crushproof to 220 pounds
• Freezeproof down to 14 degrees

Video features-important if this camera is to be considered as an alternative to pocket action camcorders-include 60p recording at 60fps in full 1080 HD, high-speed recording at 120fps in VGA quality and 240fps in 320x240 pixel resolution. Multi-motion movie image stabilization is said to compensate for blurring that occurs when shooting video when walking or panning a scene.
