The Fast and the Curious


Quick start-up and fast autofocus – courtesy of Olympus iHS and FAST AF technology – ensure you’re always ready to shoot. The TG-3 dials up the shutter speed for blur-free action images, thanks to its ultra-bright high-speed f2.0 lens. You can also reduce the ISO to shoot crisp, detailed images with minimal noise in low light, or use the Aperture priority mode to expand the focus range of the background.

You can operate the zoom, adjust settings and AF points, and trip the shutter. You can geotag photos and share files with the world. And you can apply custom signatures and stamps to your work.

More Ways to Capture the Action


Mount the TG-3 on your bike, kayak or surfboard. Set up Interval Shooting – camera start-up time and intervals between shots (both from 1 second to 24 hours). Snap up to 99 frames. Compile the images automatically into a time-lapse movie lasting up to 10 seconds (720p at 10 fps). Enjoy the oohs and aahs of your friends.

GET BACK ON THE BEATEN PATH


If you venture a little too far off the beaten path, your TG-3 can help. Its next-generation GPS accurately locates your position within 10 seconds. Landmark information can be displayed and recorded with every shot. The built-in e.Compass offers information on direction, latitude and longitude as well as elevation and water depth...in case you push the limits to the extreme. Pair the TG-3 with the OLYMPUS Image Track (OI.Track) smartphone app so you can transfer GPS logs and pictures from your camera to your smartphone.

JOURNEY TO WORLDS WITHIN


The TG-3 offers four macro modes: Microscope, Microscope Control (maximum 44.5x magnification from 1cm), Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking (multiple images are taken from foreground to background, and the areas in focus are automatically merged into one perfect shot). Add the new LED light guide and you’ve got a complete portable macro set-up.

Customer Reviews of the TG-3

July 16, 2014

PhotoCaruso

Great features but with awkward controls

PROS: Olympus did a great job with this camera. I love the new features like Wi-Fi, full sized and faster HDR, and time lapse movie mode. I was a huge fan of the TG-1 and TG-2, so I've been anticipating this product release for a long time. The images are sharper with new sensor. And it seems the flash may be a bit brighter (I'll have to check the guide number in the documentation to see how much more powerful it actually got.) The new optional Macro Light Ring is great for close focus shots, even underwater (not tested in poor visibility conditions yet).

CONS: The power button is a bit smaller and harder to activate for man-sized hands. My biggest disappointment is with the Wide/Tele toggle switch. When the switch was on the back you were able to see all of the controls for the camera at once. Not only is it harder to see now that its on the top the switch itself is small and hard to move with man-sized fingers.

SUMMARY: The TG-3 is a great camera with some very impressive features. Except for the Wide/Tele control button the camera is easy to use and operate. I have more fun using this camera than my OM-D E-M1. This camera is a MUST HAVE for underwater photographers who want to take stunning photos without spending $4k. I can't imagine how they'll top this one!
