Olympus Tough TG-3 prices and specs
The Olympus Tough TG-3 was released on Mar 31, 2014. For today the lowest price for the device is $469.95.
The Olympus Tough TG-3 belongs to the category of compact cameras. Its main benefit is a small size: the photographer can even put it in the pocket. The camera is equipped with various automatic modes but you won't shoot pictures of the same great quality in comparison to DSLR cameras.
The camera can make images at 16 megapixels max resolution. But if you want to get better image quality the more important thing is a sensor size. This model has a 1/2.3' (6.17 x 4.55 mm) sensor which means that the Tough TG-3 will make images with not so high quality as cameras with bigger sensors but instead it has more portable size. And if you want to take images of the best quality check Leica M10.
The camera has max shutter speed of 1/2000 sec. It is an average shutter speed which is rather good for shooting action images of a very good quality. The camera captures perfect videos in Full HD resolution.
The lens is fixed and you won't be able to change it. The lens provides 4x optical zoom.
Also this camera has Wi-Fi which means that the Tough TG-3 owner can share captured pictures online without offloading to a PC for example. The camera even has built-in GPS that will allow the photographer to pinpoint the location at which the images were captured. The Olympus Tough TG-3 battery life will be enough to shoot approximately 330 images.
