Olympus Tough TG-3

 

The Olympus Tough TG-3 is a worthy successor to the TG-2. Despite some image noise, it's still the best rugged camera we've tested.

Wide aperture f/2 lens. Microscope macro mode. Waterproof to 50 feet. Very quick focus. 5fps burst shooting. Accepts filters and lens accessories. Macro LED light. GPS and Wi-Fi.

Images on the noisy side. In-camera battery charging. Zoom and focus are audible on video soundtrack.

There's also a Focus Bracketing mode that works in a similar manner, capturing ten images, each at a different focal point. It doesn't blend them together—you'll have to do that yourself in Photoshop—but if you choose not to blend, you can pick the...

Olympus TG-3 Review

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough TG-3 digital camera follows on from last year's TG-2 iHS, and although it has a strong family resemblance, it brings changes in a number of key areas -- including one feature which the company says is a first for a digital camera.

Available from June 2014, the Olympus TG-3 ships in black or red versions with a list price of US$350. That's just slightly lower than the US$380 list price of its predecessor, despite the new features.
