Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Tough, talented and at home in the most demanding terrain, the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 Waterproof Compact Digital Camera captures your extreme lifestyle activities in amazing form, offering high quality stills, rapid burst shooting and HD videos.

Capture action scenes

With a mega durable shell, this compact camera is tough on the inside and the outside. The hardwearing exterior is shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof, allowing you to keep shooting in the most challenging conditions.

Take the Stylus Tough TG-850 anywhere and trust it to capture those extreme moments: hit the slopes and shoot snowy scenes or document your underwater adventures up to ten metres deep; the Olympus Stylus Tough camera is a perfect compact companion across all four seasons.

16 megapixel images

Bringing together a highly sensitive BSI CMOS image sensor and a next-generation TruePic VII image processor engine, the Olympus camera ensures precise and accurate photography with sharp, rich and natural results. The sensor and processing unit adapt the specific lens aperture that best suits your composition, allowing you to achieve stills and videos with true-to-life clarity.

Wide-angle optics

A 21 mm ultra wide-angle lens means you can fit more into the frame and capture a broader shot, great for landscapes, group shots and underwater scenes.

The wide-angle lens optics work with a DSLR based lens-shift image stabilisation system to counteract shake and achieve brilliantly sharp images, even in low-light situations.

Tilting LCD display

The TG-850 compact features a tilting LCD screen in its compact body, the tilting screen enabling you to capture shots from any angle. It's a great way to take pictures of your adventures: capture a photo at the water's surface without the need to go under, shoot over a crowd or capture imposing low angles - the tilt means you have full control over the composition.  

Special photo modes

You can shoot Time Lapse videos that really savour a special sunrise, the movement of the night's sky or a bustling cityscape. Time Lapse interval shooting takes photos of the scene at pre-set intervals (10 seconds – 60 minutes) allowing you to create a dynamic time-lapse video using a movie program on your computer.

It's important not to miss those definitive, action-packed moments; with continuous shooting at 7 fps at full resolution you can snap a series of shots in one quick burst. You're sure to grab that perfect mid-air snowboarding moment, that perfect pool dive or fast-moving fish.

Be creative

There are seven art filters that can be applied to your photos. These fun filters add a creative twist to your snaps; select from Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pin Hole and Grainy Film.

Sometimes you come across a moment that calls for a video. High-resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080) recording up to 60 fps allows you to shoot a masterful movie in stunning detail and enjoy smooth and fluid playback on a HDTV.

Made for snow, sea and sand, the adventure-ready Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 Waterproof Compact Digital Camera is the perfect camera companion for your action activities, extreme adventures and fun holidays.
