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

Ready for action, the white Olympus Tough TG-850 Waterproof Compact Digital Camera is jam-packed with features to help you get creative and shoot the best possible scenes.

Great camera for adventurers

If you live an active lifestyle or love extreme activities, this tough compact camera is for you. From ski slopes to dirt tracks and under the water, the TG-850 will capture gorgeous, exciting action scenes thanks to its combination of high-resolution technology and impressive durability.

It's freezeproof for up to –10°C weather, making it ideal for winter sports lovers. Go underwater up to 10 meters with its waterproof design, capturing stunning shots of sea life and other aquatic escapades. Take the camera on the trail with confidence as it withstands drops of up to 2.1 metres or impacts of up to 100 kg.

Tilt out the LCD screen through 180 degrees to capture a unique perspective on your adventures and friends. Even when you're underwater, you'll enjoy full control over the viewpoint for more exciting snapping.

Sharp, creative photography

The Olympus TG-850 employs iHS technology for superior photographs. A high-speed 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor pairs with a dynamic TruePic image processor to reproduce high levels of detail and colour.

The backlit sensor improves image quality and reduces noise for great results, even in low light. Capture high-res full-size movies and print-quality stills. An ultra-wide 21 mm lens takes in more of the scene to increase your shooting options, and built-in image stabilisation keeps things sharply in focus, even if you're moving.

Next-generation TruePic VII image processing precisely adapts to the exact lens aperture being used to give you stunning photos and videos with naturalistic liveliness.

Maintain quality while zooming

With Super Resolution Zoom, the Olympus TG-850 Tough Camera is able to digitally extend its optical zoom range, maintaining superior image resolution and sharpness throughout. Boost a 12.5x optical zoom to 25x without noticing any quality degradation.

Face detection technology picks out faces in a scene as the main subject, automatically focusing them and optimising exposure settings for a shot that's sharp where you want it to be and looks great in the right places. Advanced Face Detection can be used in photo and video modes, detecting up to eight faces.

Moving subjects are tracked and kept in perfect focus with AF Tracking, making for better-exposed shots. The system can even memorise the subject should it disappear from the frame to carry on tracking it when it reappears.

Movie magic

The Olympus TG-850 Waterproof Compact Camera can shoot 1920 x 1080p Full HD videos at up to 60 fps. Your movies will all look smoother and more refined for maximum enjoyment time and again.

Capture even the fastest-moving subjects in slow-motion clarity that can extend to 120 fps or even 240 fps with the High-Speed Movie function. You'll be able to capture motion invisible to the human eye to play back frame by frame later.

Hybrid 5-Axis Movie image stabilisation has been installed to offset blurring in movies, even in dim conditions, when capturing long shots or when you're moving.

Multiple views

Use the Smart Panorama mode to shoot spectacular ultra wide-angle wrap-around photographs by just panning the camera vertically or horizontally. The TG-850 interprets the points of intersection to automatically join each image together.

Seven Art Filters let you get creative and add a personal touch to your creation. Choose from effects like Pop Art, Soft Focus, Pin Hole and Grainy Film for fun expressiveness.

HDR Backlight Adjustment lets you shoot several rapid successive images at different exposures, automatically merging them for a perfectly-blended collage with optimum exposure. You'll be able to capture scenes as you see them, even when shooting into the light.

Wireless image sharing

The Olympus TG-850 makes it easy to share those awesome pictures over social networks with OI.Share and WiFi-enabled FlashAir card compatibility. Purchase this great accessory to establish a fantastic wireless connection between your camera and mobile device in a jiffy.

These two features allow quick, easy wireless transfer of still and movies to your mobile. Edit photos directly in the app when you add Art Filters, sharing your creativity on the internet. You can control FlashAir card settings from the dedicated menu in your camera, establishing a connection with your smartphone without needing a PC.

Buy more memory

It is important to have the right memory card for your camera. The memory card will determine how fast an image is saved and how fast an image is uploaded.

If you're shooting high definition videos along with high resolution images then it's best to invest in a high performance memory card. A high performance memory card will get the best out of your photography, ensuring the best continuous shooting speed and high quality data capture.

What's more, we range a variety of camera cases that will protect and help keep your gear organised on photography journeys.

The Olympus Tough TG-850 Waterproof Compact Digital Camera in white has the features and power to take your outdoor escapades to the next level.
