Olympus is launching a new rugged digital camera, the TOUGH TG-320, for active consumers. Designed to take hard knocks of everyday life, the camera is waterproof to 10 feet, shockproof to withstand five-foot drops to the hard ground, freezeproof to operate in freezing snowstorms (to 14 degrees Fahrenheit), and dustproof.
The 14 Megapixel TG-320 comes with a 3.6x optical zoom lens, TruePic III+ image processor and a 2.7-inch LCD display. It features dual image stabilization (Sensor-shift image stabilization and high ISO sensitivity) to deliver clear and blur-free images. It provides Intelligent Auto mode and Beauty Mode to help you take ideal pictures in different conditions. It supports 3D image capture as well. There are also Magic Art Filters that allows you to express your creativity with up to 12 special effects for your photos and HD movies.
The TOUGH TG-320 records 720p HD video and has HDMI output. Heading to the US in February, the rugged camera will be available for $179.99 in red and blue (yellow and white colors will be available in other markets).
