Olympus TG-850

  • Summary: Arguably, the biggest surprise of the TG-850 is how good the image quality is. That's by no means a derisory comment towards Olympus, but more towards Tough style cameras as a concept.

  • Pros: Robust build, 180 degree rotating screen, Waterproof to ten metres
  • Cons: Poor night time photos

Test: Olympus TG-850 (Digitalkamera)

CHIP Online
11 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Olympus TG-850 behauptet sich im Test als robuste und schnelle Outdoor-Kamera. Mehrere Meter tief im Wasser ein paar Schnappschüsse anfertigen, dabei kann das Gerät punkten. Einzigartig sind zudem das Klapp-Display und der 21mm-Ultra-Weitwinkel.
  • Pros: Wasserdicht und stoßfest, Schnappschuss-tauglich, Klapp-Display, 21mm-Ultra-Weitwinkel
  • Cons: Bildqualität, Schärfe am Bildrand, Bildstabilisator fehlt, Akkudauer bei Video
