Customer Review

The TG-850 Olympus has submitted an outdoor camera, which has definitely won me over.

The design is similar to how I find anyway, good Olympus standard. The controls are easy to reach at least as right-handed and meaningful placed a feature that is not now is just not important in such outdoor cameras, after being shot in numerous fields below to be subsumed activities many photos rather under difficult conditions and figuratively speaking from the hip. The controls are designed so that they are even with light gloves or damp / wet fingers still usable.

In terms of usage, the TG-850 presents pleasant straightforward and simple, the instructions may remain until further notice and at home: the most is intuitive, the menus are logically arranged, and one can quickly scroll through these and make the relevant program selection. Long search for multiple menus, because you can not find the corresponding feature should not occur in the TG-850, the camera is well thought out here as well and logically designed, and here fulfills an important requirement for an outdoor / Action Camera, namely fast, to be intuitive and simple to use. Lovely, too, how quickly they "ready to fire" is after starting.
As regards their processing, the TG-850 is a very solid, stable and robust. It is up to 2 meters high shockproof, 100kg unbreakable, frost protection down to -10 ° C and up to 10m waterproof, so it can be taken so easily to most outdoor activities.

In use, the TG-850 was able to convince with a truly beautiful color reproduction and rapid response me. Pictures at 16 megapixels and Full HD videos are feasible up to ISO 6,400. It also provides an optical fivefold zoom and focal region 21 to 105mm. Managed well the ability to continuous shooting at approximately 7 frames per second, which they clearly presented as a fixed number of similar cameras. Stark, I also found the image stabilizer even when it comes to rude thing the Tg-850 proposes very decent!
In low light, the TG-850 comes, however, quite quickly reach their limits, however, entirely appropriate in the context of the price range and at a water density of 10 meters you will anyway not take an underwater camera to dives, but rather use while snorkeling where your job certainly should do well. As a video camera, the TG-850 also provides a good performance.

Something sad and a bit incomprehensible that in many outdoor cameras usual features such as GPS receiver and electronic compass missing the TG-850. Too bad, because these are precisely when using the camera in outdoor activities is not just a gimmick, but can be a real asset.

Overall, the TG-850 was as outdoor and action camera quite convince me. In its price range it is reflected very decent and can certainly compete with the best models in this price range. So it provides a solid performance and provides a lot of fun at a fair price.

From me there overall good 4 star with an upward trend!
