Olympus has announced its latest "TOUGH" camera, the Stylus TG-3. Ready for action and active families, this lifeproof digicam is Freezeproof to -10°C (-14°F), Waterproof to 50ft (15m), Shockproof from 7ft (2.1m), Crushproof to 220 pounds (100kgf), and Dustproof.

Tucked beneath its rugged exterior, the TG-3 boasts a 16MP BSI CMOS image sensor, a fast F/2.0 4x optical zoom lens, Full 1080p HD video recording, and the speedy TruePic VII image processor right out of their (much more expensive) OM-D line of cameras. 

Other features include an Interval Shooting Function, to make your own time-lapses, and a Variable Macro System, which allows you to focus on objects as close as 10cm from your lens, and then magnify them. There's also Art Filters to jazz up your shots, and Photo Story to help display them. 

Finally, the TG-3 not only includes built-in GPS and Wi-Fi, but the camera can create its own Wi-Fi network, which you sync with your smartphone by scanning a QR code displayed on the TG-3's LCD screen. To do this, all you need is the FREE Olympus Image Share app, available for Android or iOS. The app also allows you to upload pics and videos to the web, and turns your smartphone's touch screen into a secondary (remote) camera display.
