Olympus TG-850 Underwater Camera Specs and Features

  • Waterproof (to 33ft/10m), shockproof (to 7ft/2.1m), crushproof (to 220lbf/100kgf) and freezeproof (to 14deg.F/-10deg.C), the TG-850 is built to operate flawlessly in extreme conditions – which means you won’t have to worry about a little rain during a bike ride in the local park.
  • It 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
  • Combine a newly developed, powerful DSLR-quality image processor (TruePic VII) and a best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor and you’ve got a camera that provides blazing fast autofocus, superb low-light performance and accurate subject and scene recognition (thanks to the enhanced iAUTO feature).
  • The TG-850’s 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.
