If you’re a professional photographer or just an enthusiast, chances are a DSLR is your weapon of choice. If this is the case, chances are you don’t want to take that DSLR anywhere near water or a scenario where it may fall out of your hands. This seems like a no brainer considering the rising price tag of many high powered DSLR cameras. However there are times when the perfect shot calls for some sketchy terrain in which case a shockproof and/or waterproof camera will do just the job.
Olympus is one manufacturer of such cameras with their latest model dubbed the TG-820. While the company has yet to say anything official about the camera, a leaked picture has hit the web today which we’ve included above for your viewing pleasure. Unfortunately the picture was not accompanied with a spec sheet but we do have some clues seeing how the TG-820 is a follow up to the TG-810.
The TG-810 features a 14 megapixel camera, 5.0 – 25.00 mm lens, 5x optical zoom and a 3-inch LCD display. More importantly, the TG-810 is also shockproof up to 6.6 feet and water proof up to 33 feet. Given the fact that the TG-820 is the 810’s successor, we would expect at least an incremental increase in specs. According to our sources, Olympus will officially announce the TG-820 at some point in the next couple of days when we’ll have a much clearer picture of what the specs look like.
