Olympus Tough TG-860

 

The Olympus Tough TG-860 adds the GPS and Wi-Fi that were missing from the TG-850, but takes a step back in terms of image quality.

21mm wide-angle lens. Waterproof to 50 feet. Hinged rear display. Super Macro shooting mode. Integrated Wi-Fi and GPS. Dual tripod mounts.

Images could be sharper. No dedicated battery charger included. Video is noticeably shaky.

Performance and Conclusions The TG-860 starts, focuses, and fires in about 1.1 second, which is fairly speedy for a compact camera. In bright light its focus system is very quick, locking on almost instantly, although it does slow in dim conditions....

Olympus TOUGH TG860 review

 

The Olympus TOUGH TG860 is a water-proof, shock-proof, freeze-proof and dust-proof compact. Launched in April 2015 it's an update to the year-old TG850 iHS. It retains the earlier model's 16 Megapixel CMOS sensor and the 21-105mm equivalent optical...

Water-proof to 15 metres ; 3 in 461k dot flip-up screen ; 5x zoom with 21mm super-wide angle ; Good Wifi and GPS with depth/altitude ; Great macro modes ; Second front-mounted shutter release

No HD slow motion modes ; Poor grip ; Noisy zoom on review sample ; No tap control

The TG860 is the number two model in the Olympus TOUGH line-up behind the flagship TG4. It's a popular model, but not as popular as the TG4. Unlike a lot of 'next one down' models though, it doesn't offer a cut down version of the premier product with...
