Olympus Tough TG-3 is the newest camera coming from Olympus. It is an upgraded version of its predecessor, the TG-2. The TG generation is known for its durability which might be an understatement, because all of them are almost bulletproof.
TG-3 resembles the previous TG camera, but this one is updated with some important features. The main novelty is that it has a unique focus stacking function, which is a boosted version of the microscope function that was introduced with the TG-2, and this function is said to be the first one ever in a digital camera.
This camera is designed with style and care. Olympus made the TG-3 available in two colors – red and black, and both versions look beautiful. It is pretty much invincible, since it is shockproof, dustproof, freezeproof, crushproof, and of course waterproof. Precisely, it is submersible to 50 feet, it works even at 14°F, and it will resist a fall from 7 feet or a pressure of 220 pounds with ease. Its looks are simply wonderful and the TG-3 features the next-generation GPS, which comes with a free application that can turn your smartphone into an extension of your camera that now can be used from a distance.
The TG-3 is connected to your phone via WiFi, so you can share files easily that way. It is equipped with a super-bright f2.0 lens, 4xzoom lens and 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor that allow the camera to make ultra high quality images. The lens also features a fisheye converter that can capture splendid wide-angle shots. Also, time-interval shooting, making time-lapse movies and four types of macro shooting are available on the TG-3. There are many accessories made for this little piece of art, but they are sold separately. It is delivered with an underwater housing and a sturdy case that follows the spirit of the TG cameras.
This unique outdoor camera is one of the toughest on the market, so you can use it in the toughest situations, without any risk of breaking or damaging it. It means you can take stunning images of your extreme adventure and boast with it to your friends who do not believe you. The Olympus Tough TG-3 will be available for $349.99. [via] watch video below
