Tough and rugged, the Olympus TG-310 is not only shockproof and waterproof it’s also freeze proof up to -10°C. This camera offers a great combination of economical pricing and premium features. You can capture high definition video and still images of your action-packed holiday adventures in all seasons. The shock absorbing construction enables the camera to withstand rough use, bumps and falls up to a depth of 5 feet.

Shooting high definition videos is really simple – at the click of a button. You get 720p HD movies and dramatic 3D pictures with superb clarity even underwater. Using the HDMI output interface you can easily hook up your camera to an HDTV. Thanks to the Dual Image Stabilization feature, your pictures and movies come out really sharp and clear despite any wobbles and shakes while shooting. The 3.6X wide optical zoom lets you get really close, without any blurring. The extra wide viewing angle of the 2.7” LCD lets you make sure that everything and everybody is included in your photo. The 14 megapixel image sensor produces high-resolution photos that can be printed in poster size without any loss of detail.

The TG-310 automatically identifies the scene that you are clicking and makes adjustments to ensure the best picture. You can also choose from a variety of modes like Portrait, Sport, etc. Using the 12 Magic Art Filters you can get creative with special effects that’ll add an extra dimension to your photos. When you are clicking portraits, the Beauty Mode is handy to soften lines and wipe out blemishes from your picture. You can view and edit your pictures in-camera, using the LCD screen and the easy-to-use controls.
