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....

I just got a new Olympus TG-3 and have a couple of questions regarding battery charging. I usually have one or two spare batteries for my camera. I have 3 for my E-M10; the Olympus battery that came with the camera and two Watson batteries from B&H that cost half as much for each. I want to get at least one spare LI-92B battery for the TG-3. So I went on line and the only LI-92B battery available for the TG-3 is from Olympus. Plus I couldn't find a charger that would charge a LI-92B battery...

I just got my new TG-3 and it will only focus when the zoom is fully wide. As soon as I zoom in, even a little, it doesn't even seem to attempt to focus. I've looked and tried everything I can find in the menus and have even tried a settings reset a few times to no avail.  I am not an amateur. I own a TG-2, XZ-1, XZ-2 and several SLRs. Seems like I got a bad camera but hopefully someone will tell me different.  Thanks

Just purchased a TG-3 and am having fun with the different functions. The GPS and barometric readouts work fine and are reasonably accurate - but - the altitude readout is 100 meters off. Where I live in Canada it is about 200 meters above sea level but the camera indicates 90 meters. Not a major problem as the camera works great for what I need it to do. Has anyone else with a TG-3 bothered to check out the accuracy of the altimeter? TIA --polarpics

I'm dropping in from M43 land because we are planning an extended vacation to Florida and plus a Bahamas cruise. Plan do some snorkeling in the Bahamas plus lots of beach and pool time. While my main travel camera will still be my E-M10, I want a waterproof backup for the water, the beach, and poolside. Looking for opinions for and against either of these cameras.

I am trying to understand my new TG3 settings and hope that someone might have some answers.First, my camera will suddenly start taking dark photos despite it being broad daylight. Its seems to be random, but pretty frustrating.Second, the flash rarely ever works, no matter what setting its on. I've forced it to flash in backlit mode a time or two, but never on its own in auto. I understand that the flash settings are not available with some settings, but again, its never when i need...
