Olympus Just Announced the TG-3 and SH-1: Two Cameras to Revolutionize the Market

Olympus Just Announced the TG-3 and SH-1: Two Cameras to Revolutionize the Market

The Olympus TG- 3 is a very good opponent to the underwater cameras on the market. This camera is the only that can go about 50.0' (15.2 meters) without an extra housing. Plus, its 16 megapixels, Full HD Video at 1080p, Built-in WIFI , GPS , Compass, ISO 6400, 5 fps , 4X Zoom and fast processor , coldproof, shockproof , dustproof and kidsproof ... lol ... just kidding .

The TG -3 has been improved from its predecessor the TG -2, with an improved GPS  and including a macro - microscopic mode .... what? This means that you can make photographic shots of even dust particles and you'll notice some crisp & clear details. In fact , we could say that you'll see things that are not seen with the naked eye . You can also make shots in 1sec intervals -24 hours to a maximum of 99 frames.

On the other hand, like its predecessor you will be able to add wide angle converter and tele-converter lenses and still use them underwater.

The Olympus SH -1, although is another compact camera promises to be excellent by borrowing some specs from the PEN cameras. This is a cross between a mirrorless  camera and a regular point & shot. Why ? The SH1 has the same  5 - axis image stabilization from their mirror-less cameras . Additionally, includes 16megapíxeles , 24X optical zoom , shutter lens with F3- 6.9 , touch screen LCD, Full HD Video and built-in WIFI .

Both camera will be available in May / June 2014 and are available for pre - order. Keep visiting our blog for example images ;) from this cameras.

Olympus Stylus 1

     The Stylus 1 Digital Camera from Olympus houses a 1/1.7" back-side illuminated CMOS sensor with 12MP of effective pixels for high resolution photography and Full HD 1080p video. It features an i.Zuiko 10.7x optical zoom lens with an f/2.8 constant aperture. The 35mm focal length equivalence of the zoom lens is 28-300mm which provides is a very wide magnification range allowing for true wide-angle to super telephoto shooting. The f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range offers effective low-light capability and shallow depth of field focus control. In addition, the ISO sensitivity range runs from 100-12800 for rich tones in bright light and low-noise in dim settings. Fast autofocus and a full resolution continuous shooting speed of 7 fps exemplify the performance speed of its TruePic VI image processor.
     A large Hi-Definition Electronic Viewfinder enables bright, stable, eye-level composition with 100% field of view. 1.15x magnification and 1.44 million dots resolution provides clear live view of exposure, white balance, art filters and more. A display of camera settings is also a visible on the EVF and an eye sensor immediately illuminates the viewfinder when you bring the camera to your eye. In addition a 3.0" Tilt-Touch LCD with a resolution of 1.04 million dots offers accurate colors in composition and playback. Able to tilt up 80º and down 50º, the LCD makes it easy to shoot from odd angles and avoid reflections in bright light. Touchscreen control enables camera settings adjustment and shutter release and a simple swipe allows for rapid image viewing in playback. It also supports adjustable brightness, color saturation and tone.
     Full HD 1080p video recording at 30 fps is supported as is a range of lower resolutions, including VGA and QVGA slow-motion video capture. Also, the Stylus 1 provides built-in wireless connectivity for instant transfer of images to a PC, smartphone or tablet. When using the Olympus Image Share app, the remote function allows you to fully control the camera's shutter speed, ISO, aperture and more from your smart device. You can also see the camera's live view on your device, select autofocus points and add art filter effects.
