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.

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.

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. Location info can also be tagged to your photos and used to map your journey with Olympus Viewer 3 software. If you prefer, you can find your own way using the built-in e.Compass which displays information such as 1) Latitude and longitude, 2) Atmospheric and water pressure, 3) Altitude and water depth, and 4) Date and time.

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). The TG-3 is truly an action cam and so much more!

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). Add the new LED ring light (LG-1) and you’ve got a complete portable macro set-up.

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 light (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 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.
