Olympus has announced the new Olympus Tough TG-310 – apart from being waterproof (3m), dustproof, freezeproof, and shockproof, it features a wide angle 3.6x optical zoom lens (28-102mm), 2.7″ screen with 230k pixels, 720p HD Video, HDMI out, 3D photo shooting, ISO80 to 1600, Panoramic shot, SDHC / SDXC support, anti-shake sensor, and USB Charging. The OLYMPUS TOUGH TG-310 in silver, blue, red, white and orange for €199 from February.
“Ready for anything – You name it, OLYMPUS TOUGH cameras can handle it. They’re packed with the toughest ever technology. Even deep underwater, a sliding double lock mechanism protects the battery, card slots and ports while an additional lens barrier (metal on the TG-610, hard glass on the TG-310) safeguards the optical zoom lens. Thanks to this doubly tough protection, the TG-610 is waterproof to fully five metres, the TG-310 to an impressive three metres. Both cameras are freezeproof to -10°C (14°F) and shockproof to a height of 1.5 metres, so there’s no need to worry when young children get hold of them and decide to play catch, submarines or ‘let’s hide stuff in the freezer’.”
