Awesome go-everywhere camera

Tevaihani, Amazon

  • Summary: Pretty awesome camera for the price!! I own a DSLR camera and were looking for a camera that I could take everywhere. I spent hours comparing between all the different brands and decided to give this Olympus a try. And I have no regrets at all. I was totally surprised by that camera and would advise to get it for the following reasons: - WIDE lens which is great for the Selfie.

User Review

Nathan Chao, DP Review

  • Excerpt: Fantastic selfie camera. I am the family picture taker and rarely appear in any photos. With this camera, I can include the whole family and myself in a selfie with no tripod or stranger involved. This camera is also replaced my wide angle lens. It is so much more conventient than changing lenses and even more compact than a lens. The results are much better than I expected with a folded lens. The photos are crisp and not soft like my previous Sony waterproof camera.

Great Camera

Dennis Brandenburger "Brandy", Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera I bought it before going to Hawaii. Movies were clear worked for Snorkeling and underwater shoots. I didn't take it diving because its rated to around 30 feet. I would have bought and may still buy the newer version That I can take down to over 50 feet and has a lot more bells and whistles!!!!!!!!! Its also an Olympus. It was to come on line I believe 6/6/2014 ,but it was also $100 more. I didn't have the time to wait.

Versatile and durable, great video, value for price but not perfect

  • Summary: The flip screen is key for the "selfie" culture spreading, coupled with the wide angled lens this is an amazing (and impressive) tool sure to amaze your friends, especially when paired with the "tough" ness feature. Handled 14 days of sailing in SW turkey, underwater photos, hikes and general abuse with no change in performance.

Fast operation, super wide 21mm lens, amazing macro, useful flip screen

BK in SD, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: Great little camera. Starts up and operates super fast. The 21mm super wide lens is great for landscapes. The flip screen makes perfect group selfies a snap. Macro shoots down to 1cm, and brings out tons of detail. The in-camera battery charging that requires it's own non-standard adapter is kind of a pain - I prefer the external chargers. Best non-GPS / non-WiFi waterproof camera out there, with some unique features.

Great little camera!

A. Newbury "A. Newbury", Amazon

  • Summary: I just received this camera a few days ago so I don't have a lot of experience with it, but I can say this: For the price point, this is a great addition to our camera collection and I've been very happy with it so far. We appreciate picture quality and also own a DSLR, but because it's so expensive we're afraid to take it along on most of our vacations. So, after days of research we chose the TG-850 as a solid point-and-shoot that we're not afraid to get dirty, or wet.

Great little camera

  • Summary: This is a great tough little camera! Used it in Jamaica on the beach and while climbing a waterfall. It worked perfectly! If I had a "con" it would be that the "regular" pictures that I took are slightly blurry, but I have an SLR for those so no worries for me. May have even been my fault because I didn't take the time to make adjustments. I highly recommend this little jewel!

  • Summary: I like it, just need time to see how the battery life performs. Looks sturdy and think the turnable screen will be handy.
