Olympus TG-310 vs Olympus TG-3 Sensor Comparison

Generally, it is very tough to see the gap in sensor dimensions purely by viewing a spec sheet. The pic here may provide you a much better sense of the sensor measurements in the TG-310 and TG-3.

As you can see, the 2 cameras come with the identical sensor size but not the same resolution. You should anticipate the Olympus TG-3 to provide you with extra detail utilizing its extra 2MP. Greater resolution can also allow you to crop photos a good deal more aggressively. The more aged TG-310 will be disadvantaged with regard to sensor innovation.
