The Olympus TOUGH line gets even tougher with the new mid-range STYLUS TOUGH TG-830 iHS and entry-level STYLUS TOUGH TG-630 iHS. Active photographers who want an action-packed camera to help them capture brilliant stills and high-speed full 1080p HD video as proof of their rugged adventures will gravitate to the STYLUS TOUGH TG-830 iHS. The rugged TG-830 iHS is perfect for a mountain adventure where a waterproof (down to 33 feet), shockproof (from 6.6-foot drops), crushproof (up to 220 pounds), freezeproof (down to 14°F) and dustproof body can withstand the elements. As intelligent as it is durable, it captures worry-free images in the most challenging environments with a 16-megapixel Back-Side Illuminated CMOS sensor and TruPic VI image processor.
Action photography is all about speed. Olympus iHS technology delivers with new high-speed shooting technology on the TG-830 iHS that captures High Speed video at 120 frames per second in 720p and 240 frames per second in HVGA along with High-Speed Sequential shooting of still images at the push of a button. Show off snowboarding stunts and other fast-moving action with slow-motion playback for that special touch. The TG-830 iHS, along with the STYLUS SH-50 iHS, another Olympus compact announced today, includes 60-frames-per-second HD recording, 60i Movie, for smoother images of moving subjects.
Adventurers may not have to leave one peak to capture the action on another thanks to a 5x optical zoom and 10x super-resolution zoom. Never decide between a still image and a movie with Multi- Recording that captures full HD video and images simultaneously. Camera shake caused by trembling hands is counteracted by dual image stabilization that moves the CMOS sensor via a shift-type image stabilization mechanism to reduce image blur. Built-in GPS records and displays locations and landmark information with every image so remembering that special location for birding, hunting, fishing or going downhill is simple.
