Singapore – 6th January 2016

Olympus is pleased to announce the launch of the 16-Megapixel  Tough TG-870 rugged compact digital camera. Designed for outdoor enthusiasts, rugged urban explorers and families with young children, the new TG-870 features the widest lens of any compact digital camera with a 21mm 5x zoom. Its standout features include a 180 degree flip-up screen, Wi-Fi compatibility, GPS, and a new 920k dot LCD screen with a 2.6x brightness-boost function that enhances outdoor visibility. The new TG-870 is 15m water-proof, 2.1m shock proof, 100kgf crush-proof, and is -10 degrees Celsius freeze-proof.

The remarkable 21-105mm wide-angle zoom lens of the Tough TG- 870 provides you with the ability to photograph the widest scenes from expansive outdoor vistas to cramped interiors, and at the same time, allow you to capture flattering portraits when fully extended. For the best image quality, Olympus has used the same type of high performance glass optics that it uses in the highly-regarded Zuiko lens system for PEN and OM-D cameras.


A new Autofocus-Lock functionality, automatic edge distortion compensation for flattering ultra-wide angle selfies, and a significantly smaller USB charger are the highlight improvements over the series model that it succeeds (i.e., the Tough TG-860). The new Olympus TG-870 is designed for the consumer who wants a durable camera with superb lens flexibility and the best balance of the latest imaging features. It’s the ideal no-fuss compact camera that you can take anywhere.
