It's easy enough to select, but every time I turn the camera off it resets to single frame. I don't want to keep it on while I'm paddleboarding due to the battery drain but I miss shots either because I'm fumbling with the multi shot selector or because the one shot I get off misses the moment (like a whale surfacing nearby). Any ideas?
I have the TG3 and love it but when I try to video stuff its stops recording at random, sometimes it will record for 10sec and stop on its own or 20sec or 40sec sometimes if I'm lucky it will record for 2 min before randomly deciding to stop, it gets quite frustrating when you miss good video moments cause the camera stops recording video when ever it wants to, dose anyone have the same problem? or know y it does this and if its fixable? Thanks
It's still early summer but I've already booked a trip to go to Whistler this coming winter and am thinking about what to bring. I have always wanted to bring a camera there to capture the beautiful mountains and scenery up there but have been fearing about the safety of my camera and lenses. Therefore, wanted some suggestions as to what type of camera, bags, straps, etc are recommended in these situations.

I have the opportunity to buy one of these cameras right now. TG-3 is still too pricey. The TX30 is a lot younger and has 18mp, however I read that with such a small sensor there's little advantage. I also find the 2.0/f of the Olympus quite appealing. Primary use will be landscapes/beaches/tourism seeing as I hate taking my DSLR on trips.

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...
