Made for every extreme

Made for cold winter weather

Whether you want to hit the slopes on skis or your snowboard, twirl around on the ice or go tobogganing with family and friends, the Tough TG-850 is your ultimate wintertime companion.

Made for fun under the water

Summertime is fun-in-the-water time – and the perfect time for capturing sharp photos in the sunny outdoors. With its waterproof sealing, the TG-850’s reliable, tight housing can handle dives down to 10 metres under the water – in the pool or in the sea with no worries. This Tough camera is also safe against splashes coming off your boat or kayak, fishing rod or jet skis.

Made for rough-and-tough adventures

Is your passion mountain climbing, hiking or simply travelling around the globe? Rugged conditions around the world are no match for the TG-850. Its shockproof and crushproof build keeps all the components inside safe and working – whether the camera falls from a height of 2.1 metres or gets hit with an impact of 100 kilograms.

Feature 01

Three adventure-ready features

Discover the benefits of wide angles with image stabilisation

This exceptional optical technology has been expertly engineered to achieve an ultra-wide 21mm lens that doesn’t compromise on image quality. Even at 5x optical zoom, it maintains its high performance. The lens works with the D-SLR-based lens-shift stabilisation technology, which counteracts handshake, to deliver clear images even in low light.

Feature 02
Feature 03
Easily take creative underwater photos

The TG-850 is the first camera in the Tough class to feature a tilting LCD screen while retaining its compact, slim size. Shoot creative, fascinating perspectives – from high to low angles. To add a creative touch, get a shot of fellow adventure-lovers directly at the waterline while enjoying a dive in the pool or sea – without ever getting your own face wet.

Savour the moment

So you can capture the full glory of the moment – like beautiful sunrises, moments of action or simply the movement of the stars – Interval Shooting enables special time-lapse movies. This smart feature takes photos (1–99) of the scene at pre-set intervals (10 sec.–60 min.), which you can then use to generate a dynamic time-lapse sequence using a movie program on your computer.

Colour Name: Black
This is a very solid camera to hold with very strong metal body, and as far as I'm aware the first time you have a flip screen on a weatherproof/waterproof camera.

Very easy to use and operate it's a simple point and shot but with the usual array of filters and scene modes.
My overall quick fire list of points...

+ Nice 5x zoom range 21mm-105mm equivalent (wider than many cameras) Image stabilisation works well
+ Rugged build, feels extremely well built and beefy in the hand
+ Video quality was pretty good, you can zoom too, detail and sound above average (some high speed 120 and 240fps video modes for playing around with at lower resolution)
+ Large 3" 460k LCD and the mechanism feels very strong too, easy to see even in harsh lighting
+ Waterproof (up to 10m), freeze proof, shock proof, and crush proof evidently up to 100kg (I didn't try it though!)
+ Nice macro 1cm allowing some very good close up shooting
+ Snappy AF and shooting speed, also has a fast 7fps mode (but only for about a second of shooting)
+ Good battery life around 290 shots (above average for a camera of this type)

- Not the best image quality bit softer in the corners at the wide end, high ISO images bit over processed not for pixel peepers
- Zoom motor noise can be heard in video recordings
- Surprisingly no wifi or GPS included (quite common nowadays)
- Images a bit cool in overcast conditions (just adjust the white balance here)

Like most cameras or this type you charge the battery in camera
You get your usual selection of effects and filters, panoramic mode, time lapse movie shooting, interval timer, HDR modes to play with.

Colour Name: Black Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace my Olympus mu 1030 which had served me well but was wearing out after a great deal of use. I also wanted a better screen for difficult light conditions. I am a worldwide traveller and often use my camera in (physically and photographically) less than ideal conditions. I don't connect to Facebook etc. and I don't carry a laptop when I travel. I rarely enlarge beyond A4.I need a camera that produces good photos in a wide range of conditions, doesn't mind getting wet, or occasionally bashed and fits in my pocket. I have been using Olympus cameras since the pre-digital days and have found their customer service to be excellent on the rare occasions Ive needed it.

The TG-850 fits the bill very well. The screen is clear and works well in extreme bright light i.e. the tropics. The shadow control also makes shooting in high light successful. I quite like the tilt screen and it is more useful than I expected for shooting above crowds or low down. The image quality is simply superb and the camera is reasonably easy to use. The pre-set scenes and extras such as sequential shooting are useful. Zoom quality is very impressive. Im not sure Ill use the effects much although I do occasionally like to 'play'. Overall the camera and its results just shout 'quality!'

2 minor gripes:
Firstly the package comes with a charger that allows you to charge batteries in the camera but not a separate charger for batteries outside the camera. Not so good, if like me you use spare batteries. I had a charger from my mu 1030 but otherwise you would need to buy a separate one.
Secondly, the camera does not have a lens cover and this worries me. On a camera that is so rugged I am concerned the lens will get scratched or continually dirty - we shall see.

Colour Name: White Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've had this camera a few weeks now and I'm very happy with it , i trust the brand and its very well made and can handle rain very well .

camera is easy to use if your a amateur photographer just like me , ive been taking photo's for years , but im only really used to the basic's really , saying that , its a great family camera and can be used great indoors as well as outdoors , come rain or shine .

I have taken quite a few photo's with the Olympus TG-850 camera already , some in rain and some out in the sunshine and its handled really well , video function is very good and video is very clear and sounds really good when played back on the home computer . i have bought an extra Olympus LI-50B battery for the camera , which i highly recommend you do because the video function can use the battery up quite quickly, charging only takes up to 3 hours , which is good . I've also bought a Olympus red tough camera case CSCH-121 for when we go to the seaside in the school summer holidays in august , this is a very good camera case and can hold spare battery as well . I've added 4 photo's from this camera so you can get some idea what the basic photo's are like . I'm very happy with the photo quality and the video sound and picture quality , very happy with the build of the camera and the camera's functions , not sure we will use the flip screen very often . I've owned Olympus camera's in the past and i currently own the Olympus xz-1 , so i trust the Olympus brand very well .

i would say this camera is ideal for a family and days out at the seaside and is ideal for all weathers , highly recommended .
