Tackle your latest outdoor adventure with no fear by capturing it with the water, crush, shock, freeze, and dustproof white Stylus TOUGH TG-870 Digital Camera from Olympus. In addition to being fully sealed from dust, the TG-870 is built to withstand underwater dives up to 50' deep, falls from up to 7' high, temperatures as low as 14°F, and pressure up to 220 lbf. While serving to protect on an array of adventures, these features are also well-suited to use in everyday circumstances. Also, the TG-870 introduces a host of new shooting features, including an LCD brightness boost, thirteen Art Filters, and the Live Composite mode, among others.

In regard to imaging, a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work to produce high-resolution imagery with notable low-light sensitivity and quality. The combination of these two technologies form Olympus' iHS technology, which serves to realize fast performance throughout the camera system, including a top sensitivity of ISO 6400 and 7 fps shooting rate at full resolution. The sensor and processor also support recording full HD 1080p movies at 60p. Another addition is a Nightscape Movie Mode that further optimizes image quality during nighttime shoots.

Ensuring versatility, TG-870 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom f/3.5-5.7 lens, which provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 21-105mm. This wider-than-average option provides the ability to capture exceptional vistas with ease. Complementing this lens' reach, as well as aiding the camera's use in low-light conditions, is a hybrid lens shift and digital image stabilization system, which helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake.

For image monitoring and review, as well as menu navigation, an advanced 3.0" 920k-dot LCD screen is incorporated into the camera's design. This screen is perfect for selfies and other odd angles with its 180° tilt features. Also, Monitor Boost can increase the brightness by 2.6x for viewing in bright light. Accessing the menu system reveals a host of different camera features and settings, including a built-in intervalometer, automated Time-Lapse movie creation, and the ability to utilize built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and GPS.

TOUGH Design

The TG-870 is designed to withstand a wide variety of conditions, ranging from harsh climates to everyday mishaps:
  • Waterproof to depths of 50' / 15m
  • Freezeproof to temperatures as low as 14°F / -10°C
  • Shockproof to falls from 7' / 2.1m high
  • Crushproof to withstand up to 220 lbf / 100kgf of pressure
  • Dustproof to protect the internal components of the camera

16MP BSI CMOS Sensor

A 16MP 1/2.3" backside-illuminated CMOS sensor and TruePic VII image processor work together to enable iHS (Intelligent High Speed) Technology, which benefits both the overall image quality and performance throughout the TG-870. The BSI design of the image sensor realizes notable sensitivity, up to ISO 6400, along with reduced noise levels to enhance image quality, especially in regard to working in difficult lighting conditions. The processing capabilities also afford a 7 fps shooting rate at full resolution, as well as 20 fps and 60 fps shooting rates at 3 megapixels.

5x Optical Zoom Lens

Covering ultra-wide angle to telephoto focal lengths, the compact TG-870 is equipped with a 5x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 21-105mm in 35mm terms. It offers a variable aperture of f/3.5-5.7 for work in a variety of conditions while keeping size down. Benefitting this versatile zoom range, a hybrid lens shift and digital image stabilization system helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper handheld imagery.

Full HD Movie Recording

Full HD 1920 x 1080p video recording at 60 fps in the MOV/H.264 format is available for capturing your action-packed moments and sharing them with your friends. In addition to full HD 1080p, HD 720p recording is also available as well as 120 fps and 240 fps high-speed recording at reduced resolutions. A Nightscape Movie Mode is available for further optimizing image quality in low light.

3.0" 920k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor

Compose with ease in a range of tight situations with the tilting 3.0" monitor of the TG-870. It has a high resolution of 920k-dots and can tilt up to 180°, perfect for selfies. Also, a Monitor Boost function is available to increase brightness by up to 2.6x, enabling clear viewing in bright conditions.

Live Composite

Live Composite is a mode that will automatically put together numerous exposures of a single scene in order to produce a single properly exposed image without losing highlights or shadows.

Built-In Wi-Fi and GPS

Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless sharing of photos and movies from the camera to a linked mobile device for instant sharing online. Utilizing the Olympus Image Share app, you can also remotely control the camera from a smartphone or tablet, including the ability to zoom in or out, adjust exposure and focus, and release the shutter. Additionally, utilizing the location data from a mobile device, you can geotag your imagery for plotting to an interactive map using the included Olympus Viewer 3 software. Complementing the Wi-Fi connectivity, an integrated GPS module can quickly locate your position and also enables on-board geotagging and landmark-tagging capabilities.

question

1) Video auto focus: is it possible to capture in the video fast moving objects like sport competitions? Will it be in the focus?2) Video sound quality: can you hear internal noises like warbles and clicks? Some people complain about it.
Asked by: Michael F.
All audio devices and small cameras will transmit sounds from their surface to the recording. Get a holder or case that can stop it from happening. Remember, all DSLR that shot video were outfitted with, Silent Wave Motors, Etc. because the sounds of focusing was transmitted to the recording. Test in a quiet room before buying. To add: I would recommend this camera mainly because of the 21mm lens and the tilt monitor. It is worth the $75 more for me.

Can I recharge the camera by plugging it into a power source with a usb cable?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. An included cable plugs into a connection behind the weatherproof door and the the other end of the cable is a usb connector that can be plugged into the included brick that plugs into a wall outlet or into another usb port. The battery stays in the camera while charging.
