There are compact cameras that are easy to take most anywhere. And then there are tough-style cameras that you really can take everywhere. No need to coddle the Olympus TG-830 iHS. Bring it into whatever extreme conditions you brave and document your adventures. Whether it's body-surfing in the ocean, or trudging through knee-high snow in sub-freezing temperatures, the TG-830 will not only survive but thrive, taking gorgeous photos and video. Even underwater images will look sharp and bright, thanks to the 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and high-sensitivity 6400 ISO.
Keep track of your travels with the TG-830's built-in GPS, which records location and landmark information for all your photos. A series of shots from a hike can even let you map out your precise route using Google Maps or Picasa, perfect for remembering which trail was particularly picturesque. The speedy TruePic™ VI processor also lets your fire off a rapid-fire series of shots at up to 11.5 frames per second, perfect for action sequences. Or shoot high-speed HD video for slow-motion playback of your kids jumping off a diving board or sledding down a snowy hill.
When you're done shooting, check out your footage on the TG-830's bright 3-inch LCD screen. Like the lens, it features a water-repellent coating, so water won't linger on either surface. You can also connect this durable camera to your HDTV with a micro HDMI cable (not included) to show photos and movies on the big screen. With plenty of editing and filter effects, 32 scene modes, and automatic multi-shot stitching, the TG-830 iHS is every bit as versatile as it is tough.
This durable go-anywhere camera is bundled with a pair of compact, waterproof 8X binoculars. Small enough to slip in a purse or pocket, they're also ideal for tracking that pod of dolphins just off the sandbar. Team these up with your TG-830 camera for the perfect vacation-documenting 1-2 punch.
From baby's first steps, to that dream vacation in the islands, these cameras make it easy to capture life's greatest hits. Today's cameras have helpful automatic features, like face detection and scene recognition that make shooting more foolproof than ever. And they all have plenty of megapixels for detailed photos that stay sharp, even when you enlarge and print them.

Overview: The Olympus Outdoor Adventure Pack includes the Stylus TG-830 digital camera and the pocket-sized 8 x 21 RC II WP Waterproof Binoculars.
Rugged Design: The Olympus Stylus TG-830 is a rugged camera, designed for adventurous photographers. The camera's durable construction is built to the following standards:
Double Lock Mechanisms: The battery compartment and connector cover doors both have double lock mechanisms to prevent accidental exposure to moisture and dust. Rubberized seals on the doors help make the compartments watertight to protect the battery, memory card, and connector contacts.
Optics: The TG-830 is equipped with a bright F3.9-5.9 lens to let you capture shots in low light or situations when a flash cannot be used. The 5x optical zoom lens has a focal length of 5.0-25.0mm (equivalent to 28-140mm in 35mm photography). A special water-repellent coating on the lens prevents water from remaining on the lens surface.
Super-Resolution Zoom: The Super-Resolution Zoom increases the effective zoom power without compromising image quality. The zoom ratio depends upon the selected image size. In 4:3 aspect ratio, the Super-Res zoom extends the total zoom to 10x (16M), 7x (8M), 12x (3M), and 20x (VGA).
3.0" Monitor: The camera is equipped with a 3.0" High-resolution Hypercrystal III LCD monitor with approximately 460,000 dots. The monitor features several protective coatings to reduce glare and to prevent scratches. Like the lens, a special water-repellent coating prevents water from remaining on the monitor. The TG-830 offers a 5-level monitor brightness adjustment in the menu.
iHS: iHS technology is a combination of the high-sensitivity, high-speed 1/2.3" 16MP backlit CMOS sensor and the exceptionally fast TruePic VI image processor. The result is fast auto focusing, an enhanced iAuto shooting mode that recognizes multiple scenes and subjects, and Super Resolution Zoom that lets you zoom in farther than the optical zoom without degrading the image.
GPS: The TG-830 has a built-in GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver, which can record location information onto your photos and movies. Using applications such as Olympus Viewer 3, Google Earth, or Picasa, you can view the location of your photos on a map. The logging function lets you track the route taken on your adventure.
Recording Media: The Olympus Stylus TG-830 digital camera records still images or movies onto optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC Memory Cards. For test images, or when the memory card becomes full, you can shoot a small number of images onto the camera's internal memory (approximately 39MB). Still images are recorded in JPEG format. Movies are recorded in MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 with sound.
FlashAir: The TG-830 is compatible with commercially available FlashAir cards. These cards have a Wireless LAN function to enable you to connect the camera to a Wi-Fi-enabled smartphone or PC to view or import images from the card.
Dual Image Stabilization: The camera combines Sensor-shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds, so you can capture sharp, blur-free images, even if your subject is moving.
Focusing Range: The focus range for the normal shooting mode is 8.4" to infinity (W) and 19.2" to infinity (T). In the Super Macro mode, you can record images from 1.2" to 2' away.
White Balance: The Stylus TG-830 offers the following White Balance presets: WB Auto, Sunny, Cloudy, Incandescent, Fluorescent, and Underwater. You can also set and store two custom white balance settings based on an actual scene.
LED Illuminator: The camera has a built-in LED illuminator that can assist in Auto Focusing, or illuminate the scene in closeup situations. It can be turned on or off manually in the menu, or set to automatically illuminate when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
Flash: The camera's built-in flash operates in the following modes:
Self-Timer: You can take pictures of yourself using the 12-second built-in self timer. The 2-second self-timer also aids in preventing camera shake.
Power Requirements: The Stylus TG-830 operates on an LI-50B rechargeable Lithium-ion battery (3.7V, 925mAh, 3.5Wh). An AC adapter (F-2AC-1B) is supplied to charge the LI-50B in the camera or operate the camera on AC power. The camera can take up to approximately 300 photos with fully charged battery. Charging time is approximately 3 hours. The camera can also charge while it is connected to a computer via USB.
Resolution: The Stylus TG-830 can record still images in four aspect ratios: 4:3, 16:9, 3:2, and 1:1. Two image quality (compression) settings can be selected: Fine and Normal. Movies are recorded in 16:9 and 4:3, with or without sound. Available image sizes include:
|4608 x 3456||4608 x 2592||4608 x 3072||3456 x 3456|
|3200 x 2400||3200 x 1800||3216 x 2144||2400 x 2400|
|1920 x 1440||1920 x 1080||1920 x 1280||1440 x 1440|
|640 x 480||640 x 360||624 x 416||480 x 480|
Shooting Modes: The rear-mounted Mode Dial lets you choose between several shooting modes:
Sequential Shooting: The camera can take one frame at a time, or a sequence of pictures at a time by holding down the shutter button. During sequential shooting, the focus, exposure, and white balance are fixed when the first frame is shot. You can choose from the following:
|Selection||Frames Per Second||Maximum # of Frames||Frame Resolution|
|Sequential 1||2.5 fps||200 images||16M|
|Sequential 2||10 fps||17 images||16M|
|High Speed 1||15 fps||60 images||3M|
|High Speed 2||60 fps||60 images||3M|
|Auto Split Shooting||Not given||16 images||3M|
Sensitivity: The higher the ISO value, the greater the camera's light sensitivity and better its ability to shoot in low light. The Stylus TG-830 can automatically set the camera's sensitivity according to the conditions around the subject. To minimize blur caused by a moving subject or camera movement, the camera can automatically use a higher sensitivity (compared to Auto). Manual settings include ISO 125, 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200, and 6400 equivalents.
AF Mode: There are three AF (auto focus) modes for selecting the focusing area:
Exposure Compensation: In some situations, you may get better results by adjusting the exposure slightly using exposure compensation. You can adjust from -2.0 to + 2.0 EV in 1/3 stop increments.
Still Image Audio Recording: When activated, the camera's built-in microphone can be set to record four seconds of audio after the shutter button is released and the picture is taken. In the playback menu, you can add up to 4 seconds of audio to still pictures.
Image Playback: Once still images or movies have been captured, the camera gives you several options for playing them back:
Outputs: The Stylus TG-830 is equipped with an HDMI Micro Connector (Type D) for connecting the camera to an HDMI-equipped HDTV. The output can be set to 1080i, 720p, or 480p. If the connected HDTV is compatible with HDMI Control, you can set the camera to be controlled by the TV's remote control. The camera also has a proprietary multi-function jack used as an audio/video output (with the optional CB-AVC3 composite video/mono audio cable) or a USB port (with the supplied USB cable).
Editing Pictures: If a picture you have taken turns out less-than-perfect, you can edit it using one of the following:
Erasing/Protecting Images: Unwanted images can be erased one at a time or all at once. You can protect important images to avoid accidentally erasing them. Once an image is protected, it cannot be erased during a single-frame erase or all-frame erase function. Protected images are erased when the memory is reformatted.
PictBridge Printing Capability: Using the supplied USB cable, you can connect this camera directly to a PictBridge-compliant printer. PictBridge is a standard that allows you to connect a PictBridge compliant camera directly to a PictBridge compliant printer and make prints, regardless of brand.
Print Reservation: Applying Print Reservation (Print Order) to your pictures allows you to take the memory card to a DPOF-compatible photo lab for printing, or print them on a DPOF-compatible printer at home, without using a computer. DPOF is the Digital Print Order Format and allows you to add information to your picture files such as which pictures to print, the number of prints desired, add the date and time to each image, etc.
Supplied Software: The Stylus TG-830 comes with Olympus Viewer 3 software on CD-ROM. The disc also includes a full Camera Instruction Manual. With the software, you can stitch together images for a panoramic shot, prepare images to be uploaded to the Internet, view GPS track logs, and retouch photos. The software is compatible with the following Operating Systems:
Mass Storage Device: When the camera is used as a Mass Storage device, you can connect it to computers running the following operating systems:
