Olympus TG-3: Best Rugged Camera on the Market

Olympus TG-3: Best Rugged Camera on the Market:

By far, the TG-3 is the best rugged camera on the market. The LCD screen is sharp, the images come out with great color and good clarity, and the camera is very easy to use.

The TG-3 will be available in June for about $350.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Olympus Tough series of cameras and have recommended them highly – particularly to those who are “hard” on their gear or want a camera suitable for a kid who may not treat it gently. Good to see the reviews of the TG-3 have been very positive.

Want to Fall in Love with a Lens? Try a Prime

If you happen to be one of those who have never used a prime lens — a single focal length lens — you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. Is it just hype and no substance? Is the awesomeness of prime lenses all in other people’s heads?

Both of those questions can be assuredly answered, “No.”

So let’s go over the reasons why you should give prime lenses a try and why I’m confident that you will absolutely love the results.

I carry two primes in my bag – the Nikon “Nifty Fifty” and for the M1, the 75mm.

I wouldn’t say I’ve “fallen in love” with either but that might from simple lack of practice using them. I do love the lowlight capabilities of the 50mm f/1.8 though.
