Olympus Stylus Tough-3000

 

All in all, the Olympus STYLUS TOUGH-3000 digital camera can be judged as a high-end consumer performance camera. The camera need not be handled with utmost care since it features a waterproof, freeze-proof, and shockproof camera body. This model is...

Olympus Mju Tough 3000 Review

 

The Olympus Mju Tough 3000 (also known as the Stylus Tough 3000) is the newest member of Olympus' extensive range of shockproof and waterproof digital camera range. The Mju 3000 features high-definition video recording for the first time on a Tough...

The Mju Tough 3000 brings Olympus' all-action camera range to a wider audience thanks to it's budget price-tag, but at the expense of an ill-thought-out control system and below par image quality. Although it isn't quite as tough as previous models,...

Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 Review

 

The waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 can handle almost any adverse condition.

Good image, color quality ; Waterproof ; Shock resistant

Below average shutter lag and AF acquisition times ; Below average battery life

Image quality is good and the one-button video capture is a definite advantage considering the places and activities where the camera may see use. Shutter lag and AF acquisition times could be better but are not fatal. Battery life may be problematic...

Olympus µ TOUGH-3000

 

If there's one problem with taking your compact camera on holiday, it's the prospect of sand and water coming near your expensive gadget. The [mju:] Tough-3000 is set to counter such peril. The camera is rated waterproof to a depth of 3m thanks to...

Olympus MJU Tough 3000

 

This is a fairly standard, robust digital camera. It is waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. It can take a good snap shot, but I was concerned by its slow response times. That is a shame as I also found this camera easy to use.

Ease of use - USB battery charging - 0.6GB of built in memory - built in manual - robust features

Turn on time - shutter delay - LCD screen quality

I like the fact Olympus has added the current settings for main features down the side of the LCD screen. This means you can see instantly what the main settings are. It also makes them very easy to change. There is also a built in manual.

Worst Camera I've Ever Owned

 

Waterproof (Although less than a year from purchase with less than a dozen uses under its belt it water logged) ; Shock Proof ; Cool functions

Over powering flash washes out subjects ; Slow reaction time ; Water logs after a few uses ; Unclear pictures

Not so waterproof

 

All in all, a great camera for the price as long as you stay out of the water! Consider purchasing just before your important event (such as a vacation) in case the water actually damages your camera.... you can take it back/RMA it under the return...

Great Price, Nice Features, Very easy to navigate menus. We got two of these, one was used very little in the water and as such, still works... the other - read below

Not Waterproof. Took this camera to Turks and Caicos. Worked for three days in the water. We followed the directions perfectly (bathing the camera in fresh water etc). At the end of the third day, the lcd began to show strange white flashy areas on it....

Works as advertised

 

Took it on my cruise and took plenty of pictures underwater. Quality is good! Also has a beauty mode to fix your facial...ahem flaws

Seems to have a short battery life, but it could be because I was using flash a lot. Also, it takes about about 3-5 seconds in between shots, which is pretty slow compared to some other cameras out there

A little tough, but don't take it swimming

 

Good low cost knock around camera for the price I paid $149. I take mine sailing & skiing, where it might get bumped around a little, or possibly splashed.

Can survive getting splashed a little bit, and a little bumping around. No delicate mechanically extending lens - the death of my last two dead little cameras. Decent picture quality, The best camera is the one that's there when you need it, and it...

NOT waterproof as advertised. Looking the design of the seal, and many reviews of drowned cameras, I would not even consider submersing it. Poor battery life. / Expensive battery. A spare rechargeable LI-ion battery is just about mandatory, budget an...
