Olympus announced a new Olympus Stylus Tough TG-3, which takes over the role of the captain in the Olympus' starting line-up. This model enjoys a new level of performance with a 16MP BSI-CMOS sensor, a 25-100mm f/2.0-4.9 zoom lens with image stabilization, as well as a 3" LCD (which will produce better results than the OLED display which characterized the Tough TG-3's predecessor, the Olympus company hope), 1080p Full HD Video from anywhere, limited manual control, GPS (with landmarks and e-compass), and Wi-Fi. What should be emphasized regarding this model is its so-called focus stacking, in which a greater number of shots of the same scene are taken, each of which is then focused on a different spot within a frame, so that by merging these shots a greater depth-of-field would be achieved.

The Tough TG-3 is designed to withstand extreme conditions: it is waterproof to 15m/50ft, shockproof to 2.1m/7ft, dustproof, can withstand the weight of 100kg/220lbs, as well as it can endure the extreme temperatures down to -10C/+14F.

The TG-3 supports a LED Light Guide accessory (sold separately at a cost of $40.99), which can be attached to the lens in the shape of a ring flash. Its task is to evenly illuminate the subject when shooting close-up, thus bringing the best out of every situation. As its predecessor, the TG-3 supports waterproof wide and telephoto conversion lenses, alongside an underwater protector, float straps and multipurpose camera cases, which are all sold separately.
