Olympus Tough TG-830 iHS Waterproof Underwater Camera




TOUGH SHOOTING CONDITIONS CONQUERED


The Olympus Tough TG-830 iHS combines Olympus trademark indestructibility with outstanding image quality so that you no longer have to compromise image quality for durability. Featuring a state-of-the-art 16-megapixel Backlit CMOS sensor and TruePic VI Image Processor that fuel Olympus cutting-edge iHS Technology, the TG-830iHS delivers uncompromised image quality in a rugged camera. Its impressive low-light performance and high-speed responsiveness means youll get astonishing results shooting fast-action subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots above and below the surface. Designed for adrenaline junkies, but equally at home in the hands of soccer moms, younger users and the clumsy, this camera can handle just about anything you throw at it.



Its Crushproof (220lbf/100kgf), Waterproof (33ft/10m), Shockproof (7ft/2.1m), Freezeproof (14_F/-10_C) and Dustproof, meaning you can capture stunning images and 1080p Full HD Video without having to worry about damaging your cameras high-grade components like its precision 5x wide-angle optical zoom lens, high-resolution 3.0 HyperCrystal III LCD, or in-body GPS & e.compass system. Still want more? Capture still and videos simultaneously thanks to the Multi-Recording feature. Add a splash of creativity with 11 in-camera Magic Art Filters like Pop Art, Dramatic and Reflection. Take more control when recording videos with Advanced Movie Mode which allows you to record high-definition videos at 120fps for slow motion playback. The Olympus TG-830iHS: where image quality meets durability.



LIFEPROOF

  • WATERPROOF 33ft/10m: The Olympus-original complete sealing system and double lock construction borrowed from Olympus long history of manufacturing underwater housings ensures that the TG-830iHS is completely waterproof down to a depth of 33ft. Even on land, the TG-830iHS ensures that youll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.
  • SHOCKPROOF 7ft/2.1m: The shockproof structure of the TG-830 iHS ensures that your investment is protected. Carefully sandwiched between two protective frames, the lens and camera unit remain unfazed by bumps, drops, falls and other impacts. Even after repeated drops, critical camera components and functions like the lens, shutter, aperture and auto-focus remain safe. Drop, pick up, and keep on shooting.
  • CRUSHPROOF 220lbf/100kgf: No case, no problem! With a rugged body and reinforced LCD, the TG-830 iHS withstands up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.
  • FREEZEPROOF 14_F/-10_C: Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-830iHS is designed to keep operating at below freezing temperatures, safe from the two most common problems when shooting in cold weather: lens condensation and auto zoom malfunction. Hit the slopes, fire up your snowmobile, or break out the skates, because with the TG-830 iHS by your side, youll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.
  • DUSTPROOF: Life gets dirty. Between dusty fields and muddy trails, sometimes your camera doesnt stay as pristine as youd like it to. But even in less-than-spotless environments, the fine protective sealing of the TG-830 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.
