Fully featured photo-taking

The TG-3 compact digital camera is the ultimate TOUGH performer. With the right outdoor gear, it enables you to easily capture all the action-packed fun. This includes outstanding functionality, great ergonomics for easy handling and a high-end texture that also keeps the TG-3 looking good even after rugged use.

Underwater or on the slopes

Whether in the summer or in the winter, make sure you have the TG-3 with you at all times. The housing’s sealing is so tight that it can handle splashes and even dives down to 15 metres under the water. And it is ready for hitting the slopes in freezing-cold weather down to –10°C – capturing amazing wintertime photos or Full HD movies all the way down the run.

Mountaineering and more

So you can live your passion of mountain climbing or hiking virtually without a worry, the TG-3 compact digital camera features a shockproof and crushproof build that takes falls from a height of 2.1 metres or impacts of 100 kilograms. Its rugged construction also means that dusty environments are no match for the TG-3.


With a range of optional, quick-to-attach accessories – like the LED Light Guide, Fisheye or Tele Converter, and adaptor – you can enjoy a world of creative options regardless of where your adventures take you.

GPS and e.compass

Know where your shots were taken: GPS displays landmarks on the LCD and automatically records them. With the e.compass, you can check the direction, latitude and longitude – and it can be turned on even when the camera is off.


Combining a high-speed 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and high-performance TruePic image processing engine, iHS technology lets you perfectly capture exactly the scenes you want – beautifully and in sharp quality.

TruePic VII

Together with the high-speed sensor, the next-generation TruePic VII image processor adapts precisely to the specific lens aperture you’re using – for spectacular photos and videos with true-to-life vibrancy.

Art Filters and Photo Story

Enhance your shots with your own creativity: Play around with different effects by adding one of 7 Art Filters, or tell a story with your shots by combining several shots in a single collage-like composition.

Interval Shooting and Time-Lapse Movie

Interval Shooting functionality combined with Time-Lapse Movie enables you to capture sunrises or unique moments of action as movies with a special time-lapse effect.
