The Olympus TG-820 brings a very welcome update to the electronics in last year's TG-810. The new components do a much better job in low light and, above all, make the camera a whole lot more responsive. All Olympus needs to do now is update that...

The Olympus Tough TG-820 is one of the better ruggedised compact digital cameras on the market. Partly because it’s built like Chuck Norris, but also due to the fact that it’s relatively easy to use and delivers pretty good results. We...

We have been impressed by cameras in the Tough range previously, such as the TG-610 which was featured packed with good image quality. The TG-820 does not disappoint, with the latest top of the range Tough camera building on previous results. There is...

Det virker lidt mærkeligt at fjerne GPS-funktionen fra en topmodel. Men formentlig er det for at kunne holde prisen nede og have råd til at sætte en bedre billedsensor i end tidligere. Eftersom vi er så glade for den robuste...
