I am lost in the world of buying cameras, I need help deciding if I should buy. I am going on a family vacation to Florida and I really would like to take it into the water with me as I think that would be a very cool edition to photos on land. I have been doing some googleing and found a few options. 1. Olympus TG-3 On amazon its listed at $439 2. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS5 On amazon its listed at $338 3. Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS25 On amazon its listed at $190 However I've seen lots of people say...

I just purchased a TG-3 for my ski trips.  I would like to be able to extract the altitude data from the exif, but have not found a way to do that.  I can see it in the Olympus software and on the camera, but I can find no way to see it in programs like Lightroom.  Does anyone have suggestions?  --Shawn

I was recently "drafted" to take marketing photos for a beachfront bungalow vacation rental on Poipu Beach (Hawaii). I told the owner that interior/architectural photos were not my strong suit but he offered me a week plus of free accommodation right on one of the nicest beaches anywhere. How could I turn that down? I used my 7D and EF-S 10-22mm and ended up rejecting most of the images due to the obvious perspective distortion. The rental is not that big so most of the images were taken at...

Hiya Yesterday my work colleague dropped my TG3 from about 7m! it was wrapped in a old tired bubble wrap bag, which in turn was in a small (5l) canvas bag. There appears to be no cosmetic damage and camera functions normally... the only question is: What are the chances of it still been water proof? when at home i like to take it into rockpools at the beach... should i try sending it in to Olympus to have it checked out?

I don't use my TG-3 very often; bought it to mostly use in and around the water on vacations. But, once and a while when I do use it, I get a warning message to check the battery door and make sure nothing foreign is stuck in it. I've done that five or six times and found nothing. It seems that if I use the camera several times within a day or two, I don't get the message, but if it's a couple of weeks, I do. Anyone else seen this? --Bill S.Digital film is cheap; shoot fast and shoot often!!!

I'm a new Olympus TG-3 user (got the camera today) and apparently, it resets the image number when the card is formatted. I shot 15 images, downloaded them, then reformatted the card. I shot an additional 10 images, and when I downloaded them, there was a conflict with same image numbers. Anyone know anything about this? Thanks in advance...

Hey all! I'm an Aussie about to embark on the trip of a lifetime - heading to Canada for a year, and then who knows where after that?  Possiblities include a road trip through USA, a good 6 months travelling through Eastern Europe, a good 6 months travelling through Central America or all of the above! I currently have a nikon D610, with 50mm f1.8, 16-35mm f4, and a 70-200mm f2.8.  About to purchase a sb-700 speedlite, and already have a lightweight tripod.  I feel pretty comfortable with...

I run into a problem when trying to connect my TG-3 to my iPhone 4S.  I start Wifi on the camera.  Then I launch the OI.Share app on my iPhone 4S. I use the app's QR scanner, which confirms that the wifi settings have been scanned and shows the SSID and Password.  It says to "Install Profile."  I tap the "Install" button.  It opens Safari and redirects to an "Install Profile" section in Settings and shows the profile that says in red type "Unsigned".  There is an Install button, so I tap it....
