Discover the benefits of wide angles with image stabilisation

The absolute best in optical technology has been expertly engineered to achieve an
ultra-wide 21mm lens that doesn’t compromise on image quality. And the
TG-850 is the first Tough camera to have such a wide lens. Even at 5x optical zoom, it maintains its brilliant performance. The lens works with the D-SLR-based lens-shift stabilisation technology, which counteracts handshake, to deliver clear images even in low light.

Easily take creative underwater photos

The TG-850 is the first camera in the Tough class to feature a tilting LCD screen while retaining its compact, slim size. Shoot fascinating perspectives – from high to low angles. To add a creative touch, get a brilliant shot of fellow adventure-lovers directly at the water’s surface while enjoying a dive in the pool or sea – without ever getting your own face wet.

TG-850: Savour the moment

So you can capture the full glory of the moment – like beautiful sunrises, unique moments of action or simply the movement of the stars – Interval Shooting enables special time-lapse movies. This smart feature takes photos (1–99) of the scene at pre-set intervals (10 sec.–60 min.), which you can then use to generate a dynamic time-lapse sequence using a movie program on your computer.

A technology that searches for faces in a composition and recognizes them as the main subject.

Available for photos and videos, Advanced Face Detection Technology can detect up to 8 faces.


Recognizing a greater variety of scenes and automatically applying the correct settings to create the best possible shot, the enhanced new version of iAuto makes it easy to take professional-looking photos and movies at the touch of a button, even underwater.


This system tracks a moving subject automatically and keeps it continuously in focus for optimally exposed pictures. It even memorizes the subject when it goes out of frame and resumes tracking when it reappears.


Take beautiful photos of people in high-contrast situations that would normally be difficult to capture. Harnessing the power of the TruePic processor, Advanced Shadow Adjustment Technology automatically adjusts the brightness and gradation, reducing picture noise in dark areas to create a natural-looking photo.


Instead of recording just one shot, your camera takes multiple images very quickly at different exposure settings. Then it automatically merges them. The result is a collage of photos blended seamlessly together into one perfectly exposed combined final shot. Capture your scene just as you see it, no matter if you’re shooting against the light.


The world’s first* Hybrid 5-Axis Movie image stabilisation in a compact camera is designed to counteract blurring in movies even in low light, with long shots and when you’re on the move.

Simply point your Olympus and shoot.
