Thanks to the built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) connectivity feature, Olympus TG-870 lets you transfer your photos directly to compatible devices without any physical connection. One other feature that we like is the ability to use our smartphone as a remote to control our TG-870. You can change camera settings, release shutter, view LCD screen and tranfer files using remote control app.
You can connect TG-870 to compatible devices via its HDMI port or USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) port.
Olympus TG-870 is powered by battery which provides a shooting life of 300 according to CIPA standards.
Considering that the average battery life of Compact type cameras is 255 shots, its battery life is about average in its class but it would still be wise to invest in some spare batteries for long photo trips.
