Tough TG-3

TOUGH IS ONLY THE BEGINNING


Strength and sophistication – two words that define the TG-3. This ultra-rugged camera’s super-bright f2.0 lens delivers superb image quality in the harshest conditions. Features like WiFi (remote camera operation, easy file sharing), time-interval shooting (similar to popular action cams), time-lapse movie (sunsets! starscapes!) and advanced GPS make the TG-3 Olympus’s most versatile outdoor camera ever.

EXPLORE FEATURES

BUILT FOR THE LONG HAUL


Do friends sometimes doubt your stories about extreme adventures? They’ll believe you when they see the incredible images and videos you bring back with your TG-3 (or that you share instantly with built-in Wifi!). Its lifeproof construction takes whatever you can dish out – submersible to 15m/50 feet; functional in conditions as cold as -10°C/14°F; impact-resistant to 2.1m/7 feet; and crushproof to 100kgf/220 pounds of pressure.

ACCESSORIZE YOUR TG-3


The TG-3 is unique among outdoor cameras for its many accessories. Waterproof lens options include a fisheye converter that captures gorgeous wide-angle shots – even underwater – and a tele converter that increases zoom capability from 4x to nearly 7x. Also available are a new LED Light Guide for macro photography and colorful float straps, an underwater housing and sturdy cases.

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.

Connect with Your Smart Devices


The TG-3’s built-in WiFi and the free Olympus Image Share app turn your smart device into a remote extension of your camera. 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.

AMAZING

I borrowed one of these a while back. The pictures were absolutely incredible and so clear!!! I loved it so much I had to get one. We are taking it on our cruise in 2 weeks. I will review again as to how it holds up on vacation. :)

GREAT FOR KAYAKING!

I bought my TG-3 primarily for sea kayaking. I was always afraid to take my regular camera out of the dry bag.

Sam

so far so good

I have the TG-3 for a month now....I upgraded from the TG-310 (which is a great camera)....It took a little getting used to from holding it and avoid taking photo's of my fingers......but that was easy to over come.....I lost the "ring" the first day..disappointing as it is not secured well.....but it does not effect it except a place for dirt to collect....Not a lot of explaining how or the best way to use some of the setting so it was a learning curve....
It takes great pictures...I bought the silicone jacket which fits perfect...I tried the plastic screen protector but it kept peeling off when taking it in/out of my pocket....It takes quick pictures and gives you lots of fun ways to make photos ......I like the wi-fi ...I use it with my I-pod as well as my I-phone....great for selfie's......I use mine on the go a lot so the GPS is great also.....SO FAR SO GOOD....Sam

My TG-3 camera

live on the ocean, and do a lot of sea kayaking
I bought this little gem at the end of the kayaking season, but was able to take it out with me a few times

It tucks into my spray skirt and it quite comfortable there , but also it is easy access when I want it

We have a lot of eagles where I live, and I became fascinated with not only the adults, but mainly the eaglets as they grew and developed

Super pictures-------- I am impressed with the camera, My only regret is that I did not buy the camera earlier in the season- But there is always this summer

Best all-around

I was looking for a camera that I can carry and use in very harsh conditions, snowshoeing during winter, whitewater canoeing, hiking..etc. I does it all with confidence.

I took very great shots and videos so far with this camera, the telephoto lens is an essential addition which was the selling point for me.

You will have great fun doing macro pictures, beautiful flowers or disgusting insects!

Overall, great all around compact camera! I give it 5 stars because I purchased it and used it for what it has been designed.

Practical - camera for anyone and everywhere

I have two other Olympus cameras: an EM-5 and an E-PL-1. The TG-3 is the camera i have always with me, or that my kids use to take pictures or videos of anything. The optical quality is of course lower than the other two cameras that use large lenses, but the TG-3 still produces great quality pictures, with a excellent color, is fast, good with video and in low-light.
