Olympus has today announced the first waterproof camera that also features a tilt-angle LCD display, dubbed the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850, it features a 3 inch rear-facing LCD that delivers a 460k dot resolution, there’s also a 21mm equivalent wide-angle lens with 5x optical zoom and a 16 megapixel backside illuminated sensor.

The camera has also been built to be waterproof in up to 10 metres of water, crushproof to 100kg, freezeproof to -10C and shockproof to drops as high as 2.1 metres, and it even comes with the latest TruePic VII image processing engine.

All of that in a size that you would expect from a compact camera.

And there’s still more as the camera will also come with various Art Filters that can be added to pictures, as well as lens-based image stabilisation and a 7.1 fps burst shooting mode.

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-850 will be available in February for £270.
