Compact camera releases are removing to be comparatively few and distant between, yet Olympus has a span of new attached-lens compress cameras to supplement to their line-up. The initial is a new TG-3 Tough camera with beefed-up macro capabilities, while a second is a some-more normal SH-1, that mimics their renouned PEN-series cameras.
The TG-3 has all a informed Tough specs you’ve come to design out of a imperishable camera. It’s waterproof to 50-feet, shockproof from a tallness of 7-feet, and crushproof to 220-pounds of force. It can also tarry in temperatures down to 14-degrees and a weather-sealed to keep dirt out.
The genuine important further to a TG-3, though, is a macro functionality. It has necessities built right in, including concentration bracketing and concentration stacking to assistance understanding with a tiny abyss of margin concerned with close-up photography. It can concentration as tighten as 10mm when in microscope mode. You can also get an discretionary appendage ring light that surrounds a camera’s lens and harnesses light from a built-in flash. It’s meant to grasp a same purpose as a ring of lights found around a lenses of Pentax’s imperishable cameras.
There are no genuine surprises from a pristine imaging standpoint. It has a 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor and a 3-inch LCD shade with 460,000 dots of resolution. It’s not a touchscreen in sequence to keep adult a toughness and also since regulating a soppy touchscreen is scarcely impossible. The lens is a 4x event with a 25-100mm full-frame homogeneous margin of perspective and a limit orifice of F/2-4.9. It will cost $350 when it launches in June.
The SH-1 is a some-more normal compact, so we won’t be holding it on any Mountain Dew blurb adventures, yet it does adopt a rather appealing styling of a Olympus PEN array cameras. The large pull is a 24x wizz operation trustworthy to a front, that gives we a 25-600mm full-frame homogeneous margin of perspective in a rather compress body.
It has a 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor, that is a tiny small for an modernized compact, yet with all that zoom, it’s not startling to see. It also has a 3-inch display, yet this time it is a touchscreen. It will cost $400 when it’s expelled in May.
