But even in less-than-spotless environments,the fine protective sealing of the TG-830 iHS helps keep out dirt and debris allowing you to capture shot after shot even in the harshest environments.
GPS & e.Compass
The ideal travel guide. With the GPS and e.compass functions on the TG-830 iHS, location and landmark information will be displayed and recorded along with the image. The TG-830 iHS is also equipped with a logging function so you can track the route taken from recorded images by using applications such as Olympus Viewer 3, Google Earth and Picasa.
