5X WIDE-ANGLE OPTICAL ZOOM LENS (26 - 140MM EQUIVALENT)

iHS TECHNOLOGY

A powerful, DSLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom.

LOW LIGHT PERFORMANCE

Thanks to iHS technology high ISOs and quick shutter speeds, you'll achieve ideal results in low light situations whether you're shooting in a dim room, outdoors at dusk, or around the campfire.

HIGH-SPEED PERFORMANCE

From quick start up times, to ultra fast shot-to-shot intervals and blazing autofocus, the camera is always read to go when the action kicks in.

HIGH-SPEED SEQUENTIAL SHOOTING

Shoot like a pro. With high-speed burst shooting, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence at the touch of a button.

TRUEPIC VI IMAGE PROCESSOR

A TruePic VI Image Processor, first developed for professional SLRs, knows precisely how to deliver true-to-life color, the sharpest details, and less noise.

MULTI-RECORDING

Simultaneously record videos and still images so you'll never have to compromise one for the other. Simply start recording your video and press the shutter button to snap stills throughout the recording.

ISO RANGE 125-6400

Enjoy excellent dynamic range, vibrant color reproduction and reduced noise with an ISO range of 125 to 6400.

HAND-HELD STARLIGHT

Hand-Held Starlight with Flash automatically snaps several images and then stitches them together into a single, blur-free image with minimal noise resulting in stunning low light images.

BACKLIGHT HDR

Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.

HIGH-SPEED HD VIDEO

For the first time on a digital compact camera, now you can record high-speed videos in high definition. At a frame rate of 120 frames per second in 720p HD, you'll enjoy slow motion playback of all your greatest action moments!

LINEAR PCM RECORDING

Linear PCM Recording, an audio technology pioneered by Olympus for professional voice recorders, records your videos with high-definition audio for optimal playback results.

WATERPROOF TO 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-830 iHS is completely waterproof down to a depth of 33ft. Even on land, the TG-830 iHS ensures that you'll never miss an awesome shot just because of heavy rain or snow.

SHOCKPROOF TO 6.8FT/ 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 TO 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 TO 14?F/-10?C

Keep shooting outdoors even in the winter. The TG-830 iHS 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-2 iHS by your side, you?ll never miss those awesome wipe out moments.

DUSTPROOF

Don't let a little wind and dust ruin your plans - or your camera! Take photos confidently in the driest conditions without worrying about destructive dirt and dust.

GPS & e.COMPASS

The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-830 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-830 iHS is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Google Earth and Picasa.

WATER-REPELLENT LENS COATING

Splash after splash, never worry about water droplets obstructing your images thanks to the water-repellent lens coating that prevents water from remaining on the lens surface. And because it's applied to the OLED monitor as well, composing shots in the rain or while riding the waves will be a breeze.

DOUBLE-LOCK DURABILITY

With all the care that is put in to protecting the inner workings of your camera, it would be a shame for the system to fail because the battery door opens unintentionally. Thanks to the multi-directional, double-lock mechanism, your camera is protected from accidental openings under water.

AF ILLUMINATOR

An LED Illuminator is like a mini-flashlight on the front of the camera to enhance focus and exposure for macro shooting. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.

DUAL IMAGE STABILIZATION

Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.

ENHANCED INTELLIGENT AUTO

Automatically identifies the scene you're shooting - up to 30 different scene including Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro or Sports - and adjusts the settings for ideal results.

32 SCENE MODES

Select from scene modes like Beach & Snow, Night Scene, Sport and Landscape and the camera automatically adjusts the settings for optimal results.

ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY

Automatically compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and lowlight areas resulting in more uniform exposure across the image. When used together with iAuto or Face Detection, the subject's face is shot with optimal exposure settings so that the face can be recorded clearly even under strong back light conditions. The TruePic VI image processor further reduces noise in the shadowy areas allowing for even better backlight adjustment.

FACE DETECTION

Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

AF TRACKING

AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.

SMART PANORAMA

Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!

BEAUTY MAKEUP

Look like a star! Let the camera soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject's face with Beauty Mode. Or, digitally apply enhancements to your portraits like eyeshadow, whitening teeth and lifting cheek bones with Beauty Make-Up mode.

11 MAGIC ART FILTERS - STILL & VIDEO

Express your creativity with 11 different special effects for your photos and HD videos. Olympus' Magic Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new and unexpected moods ranging from the excited to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Fisheye, Soft Focus, Punk, Sparkle, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Dramatic and Fragmented. (Some effects apply only to still photos.

4 out of 5 stars   Everything as expected
By N (Frankfort, KY) August 21, 2014
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera Red 16GB Kit (E2OMTG830R)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Has a mode dial, macro mode, good zoom. Can take a still picture while taking a movie.
Cons: A bit heavy
Other Comments: Having to charge the camera with the battery in is a bit of a pain, I may get an external charger. Battery life seems excellent. I got this camera because it has the mode dial, no need to use the menu except for scene changes. This is my 2nd waterproof camera and I'm happy with it so far.

3 out of 5 stars   tg-830
By chuckpowers13 (maine) July 10, 2014
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera Red 16GB Kit (E2OMTG830R)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: It will probably do a decent job after I get used to it. seems to have good battery life on a full charge. large screen is good.
Cons: Used the camera with the underwater housing for dive trip, took approx. 100 photos which were lost due to failing to "format" the supplied memory card to the camera as outlined in the middle of an instruction cd, which I missed. This information should have been included on the hard copy of instructions and highlighted! A hard copy instruction booklet with pertinent information would probably eliminate this type of issues.
Other Comments: Took the camera to a real camera shop, got a new memory card installed and properly set up. hopefully this will work for future dive trips, since the housing was more expensive than the camera, and I am married to it for now.

Pros: great scene modes; still evaluating but seems to outperform other cameras I have; so far, underwater mode is working without any gliches; recently went to a Jamaican resort & saw many of these cameras; even if not used underwater, it's nice knowing that if it gets wet, it won't be ruined
Cons: it's a bit heavy; wish it came with just a regular neck strap;

4 out of 5 stars   Perfrect Camera for us
By LisaC (Queens, NY) May 27, 2014
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera Red 16GB Kit (E2OMTG830R)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: We needed a heavy duty camera for the different activities we do. This one fits the bill. The pictures are great, the use of the camera is not overly difficult. We have only used it a few times & have not used all the functions so it's hard to fully rate it.
Cons: I agree with other posts, the strap should be on the back of the camera.

4 out of 5 stars   Very Nice Waterproof Camera
By Uncle Gare (Milwaukee, WI) August 13, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera - Black (OMTG830K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Fast, Good Value
Cons:
Other Comments: I've owned several waterproof cameras (Oly, Sony, & Panny)over the years and this one is definitely the best I've had to date. It is quite fast (shot to shot and burst recovery) for a point and shoot with very little lag. This was important for me, because I wanted to be able to capture action shots when playing in the water with family/friends. The picture and video quality are noticeably improved over prior models and very respectable in good light. It's already been "swimming" three times since I purchased it and has held up well so far. I would highly recommend this camera for anyone looking for a good quality waterproof camera. Service from Beach Camera was impeccable as always!

5 out of 5 stars   Fantastic Rugged Point-and-Shoot Camera
By Vinny the Worm (Wapiti, Wyoming) August 01, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera - Black (OMTG830K)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Picture Quality
Cons: Strap Guide Location
Other Comments: I will be using this product for fishing trips primarily, and for wildlife and landscape pictures and vacations. I can tell you that the low light and outside photos thus far are fantastic quality. Really surprised me in this aspect as I had read reviews stating low light photos were not great. I am not a pro photo guy, much more of the point and shoot type, but i know quality. This camera should be perfect for vacations and convenient carrying on my fishing vest. The strap buckle is on the front of the camera and a tad bulky, but I am only quibbling here. A tremendous camera with unbelievable pictures for the price. Very happy I have this camera.

5 out of 5 stars   Great Camera For The Money
By enesengr (North Carolina) June 09, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera - Blue (OMTG830L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Ease of Use, Picture Quality, Product Versatility
Cons:
Other Comments: I've had this camera about three weeks now, and so far I have used it underwater, in the rain, indoors and outdoors, and it has performed flawlessly. I wanted a camera with point and shoot capabilities that would react quickly to changing conditions (so my wife could use it as well), but I also wanted to be able to control the exposure parameters manually if I needed to. This camera does it all! When set to "iAuto", it automatically senses the lighting conditions (indoors, full daylight, cloudy, underwater, nighttime, etc.) and selects the appropriate setting. Or, you can select the different settings manually (underwater, for example). It also has a setting that allows you to set the aperture and exposure times yourself, and another setting giving you Photoshop capabilities. One feature which I have found to be surprisingly useful is the Panorama setting, which allows you to take wide panoramic views by slowly panning the camera from left to right. When viewed later, it gives the sensation of being at that spot and being able to look around you. Quite frankly, I haven't found anything about this camera that is annoying. My photos thus far have turned out beautifully. All in all, it has performed beyond my expectations, and short of being able to change lenses on it (which would put it in a higher price range), I can't think of anything I would do to improve it.

5 out of 5 stars   A Great Camera
By Dee (Eagar, AZ) June 01, 2013
Review submitted for Olympus TG-830 iHS STYLUS Tough 16 MP 1080p HD Digital Camera Blue 8GB Kit (E1OMTG830L)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: water proof shock proof, Magical, Great Pictures, Easy to use
Cons: none at this time
Other Comments: I just cannot believe how much this camera can do, or does! It is just phenomenal! Plus the set up was quite easy compared to some others I have had. After I had done the set up and started to go through the different options available on the camera I was totally blown away by all of its capabilities. Never have I had a camera that included all of the "magic" settings along with all of the "SCN" settings too! not to mention the others as well as having GPS also, this camera is just too good to be true! I have had nothing but fun so far in trying to get used to my "New" camera. I was given this camera as a gift for my birthday and couldn't be happier.
