TOUGH GETS CONNECTED

Have you ever stopped and wished you had a WiFi-enabled camera that could handle extreme outdoor conditions and deliver spectacular high-resolution photos and smooth HD videos of your epic outdoor adventures, even in low light? If so, meet the Olympus Tough TG-3. It’s incredibly rugged, yet boasts a super-bright f2.0 4x zoom lens, sophisticated features like next-generation GPS, Interval Shooting and time-lapse movie options, four variable macro shooting modes, and system accessories that further expand its capabilities. This is the camera you take to places you never dared take a camera before.

TG-3

So Rugged We Call It “Lifeproof”
Extreme pursuits in extreme conditions require an extremely rugged camera. The TG-3 stands up to the four major challenges facing any adrenaline-crazed adventure shooter: wet – waterproof to 50 feet (15m); cold – freezeproof to 14°F (-10°C); clumsy – shockproof to 7 feet (2.1m); and forgetful – crushproof to 220 pounds of pressure (100kgf). So whether you dunk it, leave it outside, drop it or sit on it, the TG-3 will handle the abuse and keep right on capturing your epic adventures.



High-speed, Bright f2.0 Optics for Superb Low-light Shooting
Shooting fast action in less-than-ideal lighting is a recipe for disappointment with most outdoor cameras – but not the TG-3. Its ultra-bright high-speed f2.0 lens enables the camera to dial up the shutter speed to nail blur-free shots when a school of exotic fish is passing by or your buddy is flashing through the shadows on his bike. 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.



Built-in Connectivity for Your “Smart” Lifestyle
The TG-3 is designed to meld seamlessly with your ever-more-interconnected digital world. WiFi is built right in, so you can share files easily with the Olympus Image Share app; even cooler, you can operate the zoom, adjust ISO and white balance, select the shooting and drive modes, activate the self-timer, and even select the autofocus point and trip the shutter, all from your smart device – great for wildlife photography and including yourself in group shots. The TG-3 also has a built-in electronic compass and next-generation GPS that accurately locates your position in 10 seconds and geotags photos (for mapping out your journeys).

Get Creative with Interval Shooting and Time-lapse Movies
With the TG-3’s Interval Shooting function, you can set when you want the camera to start shooting (from 1 second to 24 hours), then select intervals from as long as 24 hours to as short as 1 second and snap up to 99 frames. These images can then be compiled automatically into a time-lapse movie lasting up to 10 seconds (720p at 10 fps).

Get Up Close – Really Close!
Mountain panoramas are great, but sometimes you want to zero in on subtler forms of natural beauty (like snowflakes or dew). The TG-3 offers four different modes for macro shooting, including Microscope, Microscope Control (a maximum magnification of 44.5x is possible from a distance of 1cm), Focus Bracketing and Focus Stacking (in which multiple images, from foreground to background, are taken and the areas in focus are automatically merged into one perfect shot).

Expand Your Rugged System with Useful Accessories
Another thing that sets the TG-3 apart from other rugged cameras is its family of accessories (sold separately). The waterproof fisheye converter (FCON-T01) gives you the ability to capture gorgeous wide-angle shots; thanks to the bright f2.0 lens, even dark underwater scenes pop. The waterproof tele converter (TCON-T01) increases the camera’s zoom capability from 4x to nearly 7x, and allows you to highlight the subject by blurring the background. And the new LED ring guide (LG-1) channels the camera’s LED illuminator for enhanced, even lighting during macro photography.

In-camera Special Effects – and Now Photo Story
For those who like to spice up their photography, the TG-3 includes 11 built-in Art Filters that enable you to apply effects like Pin Hole, Grainy Film and Fisheye right in the camera – no need to transfer images to a computer for manipulation. The TG-3 is also the first rugged camera that includes Olympus’s much-loved Photo Story feature, which provides templates you can use to combine different perspectives on the same scene into one image.

Style Name: TG-3Color Name: Black
I had this for a week and every time I use it, I kept getting more amazed. Previously I owned a TG-1 and later a TG-2. Between both, there was not much practical difference other than the high speed video and a more flexible macro mode. But TG-3 is several steps above TG-2 with the new sensor and ridiculously superb microscope mode. The level of magnification and clarity is just out of the world. Now, I do a lot of macro work on DSLR and OM-D, owning 2 macro lenses but TG-3 put it into another level in terms of magnification. Macro junkies will definitely going to love this.

Another thing I love is the auto image stacking. Once I got the camera I didn't even bother to put it on a tripod. I just parked my hand on a desk and hold the camera steady while it takes several successive shots. The result is very pleasing although it may not compete against manually stacked images using DSLR. It's fun though and easy to use. Best of all I can share it immediately via smartphone. I am going to mass produce stacked images into instagram soon.

The wifi capability is easy to connect but with my Galaxy Note 3 I have to disable my mobile data otherwise the wifi cannot connect properly. Once it is connected, data transfer is seamless and stable. The app in android is a bit cumbersome to select multiple images so I hope Olympus can improve this soon.

If you want to fully utilize the microscope mode, get the ring light reflector add-on. It really helps to give even lighting and you can just place the camera face down on the subject. I could see individual pixels from my Note 3 which is over 300ppi.

Image quality is excellent for a waterproof compact. It uses the same lens as TG-1 and TG-2 which is a bit disappointing but then that helps to keep the price low.

Style Name: TG-3Color Name: Red
First, a confession: I did not buy mine from Amazon. I got it from a competitor because I needed it in time for a Maui vacation, and Amazon's suppliers were playing games with the shipping times. Shame on them!

Now, as for the camera....the REAL reason you're reading this review! Since I got it in time, I had it in my hot little hands for the entire Maui trip. What better way to test something than a trial by fire! And water, but I'll get to that in a second. We were pretty active on this trip, and we went up cliffs, down waterfalls, out on the beach, and deep in the water, and this camera went with us everywhere. The scene modes are wonderful for an average photographer like myself. The macro function on this is stunning...and I mean incredibly so. I got some close-up shots of things like ants on flowers, and bees on lavender, where every hair and segmented joint comes up in clear detail.
This camera got banged up a little. Of course, you never ever want to TRY to test out the whole "shock resistant" claim, but there were a couple times when the camera got knocked around over some rough terrain while it was on my wrist. There are a couple scratches on the case, and some marks on the back display, but the lens perfect and the photo-taking ability never wavered.

For my own use, I would say that the underwater features of this camera really stood out. I love to be in the water, and the reefs around Maui are filled with colorful fish and corals and more than a few Honu. Go ahead, look that up. I'll wait. Back now? Great! Anyway, I wanted to capture some of those wonderful experience, and I have been disappointed in underwater cameras and cheap cases in the past. This camera blows the competition...er.....out of the water (I am SO sorry for that one).

I consider myself an intermediate to advanced Macro Photographer. Which means I take a lot of pictures of bugs and flowers. So, when I heard rumors of a camera that could do "Focus stacking" right in the camera and focus bracketing I preordered one. It arrived today. I installed the very substantial wrist strap, a SD memory chip, (32 gigabytes not included) and the battery (Included) and charged it up. In the meantime I read the quickstart guide, and downloaded the software on the provided CD. It includes the full owner's manual. Then I went for a long walk in the woods and along the local river. Even in "normal" focus mode it allows you to get pretty close. "Micro Mode" is where it really shines. There is an array of functions to help you get good macro images and beyond. In micro mode it can magnify as much as 11.1X. In focus stacking mode it acquires 8 exposures, aligns them, and combines them in such a way that the entire field is in focus. (There are some limits to this wizardry.) So does this replace my big DSLR with a designated Macro lens? No. It does allow me one more arrow in my quiver though when I go for a walk in the woods.

Pros;
Focus stacking
Extreme macro capability
Water resistant to 50 ft.
Shock resistant
Small and compact
Telephoto, fisheye, and macro light ring accessories available.
Wi-fi, GPS capable, with digital compass.
HD Movie capability.
Fits in pocket
A plethora of modes, filters, and effects are available in camera.

Cons;
View screen is not articulated (which makes getting those low to the ground macro shots of interesting insects harder)
No real manual focus which is often handy in macro situations.
No "RAW" image available.
