product description

For super-rugged compact cameras, being super-rugged is no longer enough. Two next-generation OLYMPUS TOUGH compacts have set a new benchmark, by combining Olympus’ trademark indestructibility with superb picture quality. The secret is the new iHS (Intelligence, High Sensitivity and High Speed) family of technologies in the TG-820. iHS makes it possible to capture excellent images despite the lousy conditions outdoor lovers and extreme sports junkies often have to contend with when they’re using their cameras. iHS harnesses the power of a new 12-Megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and the TruePic VI image processor (originally developed for D-SLR cameras) to dramatically improve low-light performance, speed up camera response and enhance scene and subject recognition. This transforms results with fast-moving subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots. The new TG-820 is designed for people who take sport to the limit. It can handle just about anything you can throw at it. Literally. It’s crushproof**** to a force of 100kg, waterproof** to a depth of 10 metres, shockproof*** to a height of 2m and freezeproof to -10°C. So you can capture Full HD movies and still photos without having to worry about damaging your camera’s high-grade components, including the precision 5x wide optical zoom (28mm-140mm**) and super-legible, scratch-resistant 3” 1,030,000-dot HyperCrystal III LCD.
