Olympus Tough TG-820

 

Meet the compact camera that's tougher than Chuck Norris.

Built like a tank for active outdoors use ; Easy to use with gloves thanks to Tap Control ; Takes a half decent snap in good light ; Pin-sharp rear LCD monitor

Image quality suffers at higher ISO settings ; Wrist strap could do with beefing up

Olympus TOUGH TG-820

 

If you're after a camera to take on a wild adventure, then it's got to be a rugged compact. We check out the Olympus TOUGH TG-820.

Olympus Tough TG-820

 

The very rugged Olympus Tough TG-820 is fast and capable of producing sharp images, but lacks the GPS found in competing models.

Sharp lens. Very rugged design. Excellent rear LCD. 5x zoom range. Speedy performance.

No GPS. So-so video quality. Must charge battery in camera.

Performance and Conclusions In terms of speed, the TG-820 is an impressive performer. It can start and shoot in 1.5 seconds, only makes you wait 0.2 second between photos, and records a very short 0.1-second shutter lag. The Canon PowerShot D20...

Olympus Tough TG-820

 

Need a tough camera built like a tank, while withstanding the weight of one rolling over it? The TG-820 from Olympus will go almost anywhere you can imagine, and survive the journey.

Bright and clear LCD screen ; Decent image quality at low ISO levels ; Incredibly rugged

High ISO images are messy ; HD video not as impressive as still images

The TG-810 is a fine, tough camera, if you need the meanest, most rugged model out there. Its high ISO performance leaves a lot to be desired, but it's perfectly suitable for the most extreme circumstances for photography.

Olympus TG-820 iHS

 

Durable body waterproof to 33ft and drop-proof to 6.6ft ; Good detail and noise performance through ISO 800 and even 1600 ; Fast autofocus and operation

Over processed images look unnatural, even when viewed at smaller sizes ; Somewhat fiddly zoom and navigation joystick ; Terrible video quality and microphone

REVIEW—OLYMPUS TOUGH TG-820]

 

This 12 megapixel “indestructible” compact camera has a 5X zoom lens (28–140mm film equivalent). The handsome body comes in red and black. It will withstand a 2m drop (onto carpet or concrete?) and is waterproof to 10m. It is also dustproof and will...

should be LIKE: Detail resolution up to ISO 2000

The tiny adjustment buttons and knobs ; VERDICT: This camera competes with look-alikes from Panasonic and Nikon, both of which are very good indeed. The Olympus can easily stand the comparison. For anyone planning on snorkeling on the Great Barrier...
