The blue TG-830 iHS Digital Camera from Olympus is a "tough" point-and-shoot digital camera with a 16MP sensor, 5x optical zoom lens, a host of assistive features and waterproof, shockproof, crush-proof and freeze-proof capabilities. The 16MP Back Side Illuminated CMOS sensor combined with the powerful TruePic VI Image Processor provide detailed, true-color images and fast performance speeds. Full HD 1080p video capture with a dedicated one-touch button and HDMI output is supported by the TG-830 iHS and high-speed 720p HD recording is possible at 120 frames per second with slow-motion playback. You can also simultaneously shoot photos while you record video.
The Olympus TG-830 iHS is built tough to withstand the elements and the impacts that might otherwise damage a compact camera. It can shoot underwater to a depth of 33' (10 m) and with two protective frames it is shock-proof to a drop of 6.9' (2.1 m) and crush-proof up to 220 lbf (100 kgf). It's able to shoot and maintain all functions in temperatures as low as 14°F (-10°C) and a protective seal keeps it sand- and dust-proof. Both the lens and the LCD screen have a water-repellent coating so rain and condensation won't fog up your view and the double-lock battery door prevents accidental openings.
The lens on the TG-830 iHS is a 5x optical zoom that provides the focal length equivalency of 28-140mm in the 35mm format. At 28mm, you have a wide-angle lens that can shoot expansive vistas and inclusive group shots and 140mm is a telephoto length that can magnify distant subjects or shoot creative close-ups. A Super Resolution Zoom function is also available to double that reach if necessary. Dual Image Stabilization offers clearer images by reducing the blurring effects of camera shake when shooting at telephoto lengths and in low light situations. And fast burst shooting is supported at 11.5fps (frames per second) in full resolution and up to 60.3fps in lower resolutions.
A 3.0" LCD screen with a water-repellent coating provides composition and playback and numerous assistive features make it easy to get the best shot possible. Enhanced Intelligent Auto will make all camera adjustments to capture your images with the optimal settings and Scene Modes allow you to match the camera's settings to the scene you are shooting, whether it be Sports, Snow, or Night Portrait. One-touch Panorama is supported and Face Detection recognizes when you are shooting people to optimize exposure on their faces for sharp, well-lit portraits. Creative Art Filters, such as Watercolor, Fisheye and Miniature are available to add special effects to your images and Beauty Mode lets you smooth out wrinkles, whiten teeth and add make-up touches.
The TG-830 iHS also features GPS and e.compass functions to log the route taken while shooting and to provide location and landmark information which can be recorded along with the compatible image.
