The upgrades come in the form of a 5x optical zoom on the wide-angle lens, and a brighter 3.0-inch LCD display, as opposed to 2.7. Also, it has five additional set scene modes. Otherwise, their functions are fairly similar, including high ISO and image stabilization for image clarity, 14-megapixel sensor, 720p HD video, and tap controls for easier use when wearing gloves or underwater. This model shoots images slower in continuous-shooting mode than the TG-310, and also has a smaller maximum aperture. Other features include multiple shooting scene modes, panorama mode, red-eye reduction, and rechargeable battery good for over 200 shots. This camera is targeted at those who travel or are in extreme weather conditions often.
