I use the camera primarily for underwater filming. Up to 10 meters to the camera
According to the manufacturer to be watertight.
Unfortunately I could not test the camera so far only in the swimming pool and up to about 3m depth.
Here, the camera displays truly outstanding images and is what is probably more important,
A more extreme test I will undergo the camera in summer next diving vacation.
Experience I will then post it here in the comments.
But the camera shows not only under water your strengths. The picture quality "on land"
is acceptable. While Olympus advertised a purported image sensor DSLR-standard, but
the picture quality is not better than the other conventional digicams.
Especially in low light you realize again the disadvantage of a digicam.
If there is no light, blur, noise and colorless cheat on the photos.
Nevertheless, the camera is probably common for an outdoor camera, frequent use in daylight
and in between the quick snapshot.
To this end, the Olympus is excellent.
Quick snapshots when you're at rock climbing, trekking tours or just diving,
the camera is quickly ready to hand, is very good in the hand, and has almost continuously
useful picture material.
Worth mentioning is the video function in Full HD resolution (1920 * 1080 pixels) and the
successful preset scene modes, such as landscapes or
especially recommendable "i-Underwater Snapshot" mode.
It manages the camera's special light reflections and relationships among water better
to process and to create high-quality images, both the depth of field as
Also check out the colors represent very good.
Overall, the Olympus TG-820 convinced than truly useful and recommendable Outdoor Camera.
The Bilqualität is good and served its purpose for quick photos and video recordings.
Anyone looking for a camera for detailed shots is quiet and with an outdoor camera anyway
not well advised. Here the focus is just on the robustness of the device, the camera is in
be any situation at hand and not be damaged by minor shocks or even when dropped
will. Here are the real strengths of Olympus.
For the more adventurous who want to record their experiences, a clear recommendation.
