Olympus TG-850 Digital Camera
Digital Camera Description
The Olympus TG-850 is a Compact Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 16 Megapixels CMOS sensor offers an ISO 125-6400 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 125-6400. This makes it possible to shoot hand-held in relatively low-light. With 16 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.
A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Olympus TG-850 to compensate for camera shake.
This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 1/2. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Given that is does not support very slow shutter-speeds, this camera is unsuitable for night photography.
The Olympus TG-850 features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance.
The Olympus TG-850 is waterproof to a 10 meter depth. The weatherproof construction of this digital camera protects it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. This particular model is also freezeproof down to -10C. There is no viewfinder on the Olympus TG-850 and no provision to add one.
