Review: Olympus Stylus Tough-6020 digital camera

 

Olympus' Stylus Tough-6020 is pretty much what you would expect from the name: a tough digital camera. It's designed to handle the situations that would destroy a standard point-and-shoot… not necessarily “extreme situations” but ones you might...

Olympus Tough Mju 720SW Review - Digital Cameras

 

7.1 Megapixel Camera, - Smart design, - Waterproof up to 3m, - Shockproof up to 1.5m

Slow shutter speed, - Auto flash can overfill, - Zoom buttons are a bit small, - Limited video capabilities

If you're after a camera that can survive the knocks, splashes and general messy nature of everyday life -- especially everyday family life -- then the Olympus mju 720 SW is a very sensible buy.

Olympus MJU Tough 6020

 

The Olympus MJU Tough 6020 has a number of useful features such as being waterproof to 5m, shockproof to 1.5m and freezeproof to -10 degrees centigrade. Picture quality is good in most situations and I was happy with the way the camera handled my...

Features - picture quality - menu strip on LCD screen - USB battery charge - large built in memory

Shutter lag - turn on time

If I had to pick a word to sum up the Olympus MJU Tough 6020 it would be solid. It has a solid feel in the hand and also takes good quality, if not spectacular snapshots. It compares well against other robust digital cameras. Although there is not a...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

What I asked for.

 

It would be nice to have a protective film cover for the LCD display.

Has done everything I asked of it for a construction field camera ; I'm amazed by the Panorama feature and the ability to adjust light settings so a flash is not required. Very good macro settings for close close-up details. The resolution works so...

I have not dropped it or submerged it yet so I can't attest to its durability. It has bumped around in my field case though and so far not evidenced any problems
