The name says it all…

by Christian Lavery


For the latest addition to the


family, the name pretty much says it all.

The Tough TG-3 is exactly that: tough. The point and shoot camera boasts a waterproof rating to 50 feet, it's shockproof to endure drops of up to seven feet, and can hold its own against up to 220 pounds of force. Plus, the Tough TG-3 is also dustproof, freezeproof, and features some handy tools like a GPS and compass.

Moving beyond its durability, the newest shooter features an F2.0 wide-angle lens and a 4X-optical-zoom range among other specs such as Wi-Fi pairing, art filters, and panorama.

Retailing at $350, the Tough TG-3 will be available come June. But in the meantime, don’t beat your current camera up too bad…it still has to last another couple of months.
