Olympus STYLUS TOUGH TG-3 lets you capture your favorite moments regardless of the weather
Most of the time, we would think of digital cameras as sensitive devices, and they rightly are. After all, how many of you would not bother to cringe if you knock your digital camera against the corner of a table or the side of a wall by accident? Dropping your camera is an even worse clanger to experience, as something is bound to chip off or dent at the very best, and at the worse, you might have to purchase a whole brand new camera. Olympus understands this, which is why they have come up with the Olympus STYLUS TOUGH TG-3, where it will be able to deliver a new level of performance for the Tough series of rugged cameras, as it sports a high-speed f2.0 lens (25mm–100mm), expanded macro photography capabilities, GPS, and built-in Wi-Fi.
Of course, shooting photos under normal conditions would not be a challenge regardless of the digital camera that you use, but when the weather starts to turn foul, perhaps it is time for you to start to consider a waterproof camera, or at the very least, a weatherproof one. Case in point, the Olympus STYLUS TOUGH TG-3, where it has been specially built for it to be able to withstand extreme conditions. Just how tough is it to be able to live up to its namesake? Well, this camera happens to be freezeproof to -10℃ (14°F), waterproof to 50 feet (15 m), shockproof from seven feet (2.1 m), crushproof to 220 pounds (100 kgf) and dustproof.
As for its performance, you need not fret, since it will come with a high-speed f2.0–4.9, 4.5–8.0mm (25mm–100mm) wide-aperture lens that will work in tandem with its TruePic VII image processor, which is the same one that is found in Olympus’ award-winning OM-D series of interchangeable lens cameras, in addition to a 16.0 megapixel backlit CMOS sensor that allows it to capture images with minimal noise, even in low-light situations. Sounds impressive enough for those who live an active outdoor lifestyle, right?
