Olympus Stylus Tough-6000

 

If you're in the market for a point-and-shoot digital camera that can stand up to rugged outdoor use, the Stylus Tough-6000 is an excellent choice. Image quality is excellent on full auto with good lighting, but the low-light capability of this camera...

Tough, waterproof, freezeproof camera now with 10 megapixel, tap control, dual image stabilization

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 is an attractive ultra-compact water, shock and shockproof 10-megapixel camera perfect for those who love to take their camera outdoors and in the water without having to baby it. The camera can take a beating and you can...

Attractively styled sports and outdoor camera, Snorkeling and freediving possible with 33 feet depth limit, Inherent waterproofing provides peace of mind when handling in/around water, Can survive 5-foot drops and 14 degree temperature!, Superb...

Strictly point & shoot, At this point we'd like more advanced movie modes, Tiny mode wheel and almost illegible tiny labels, 10 feet not enough for scuba

Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 Digital Camera Review

 

This is not the most expensive waterproof  and shockproof camera, but it performs admirable for the average outdoor enthusiast at a very reasonable price. Picture quality is good. The screen is fantastic in bright sunlight. And the waterproof and...

Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 Review

 

Having just checked out Canon's new rugged point-and-shoot, the PowerShot D10, in summing up the Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 some comparisons are inevitable, and in this case, those comparisons largely yield a study in contrasts. The Tough-6000 is...

Superb rugged and waterproof build quality, Generally easy to use, Appealing styling, Vibrant outdoor shots

Frustrating display quirks, Painfully slow AF in dim light, Flash recycle takes forever, Average image quality

Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 Waterproof Camera: Snowmodo Review

 

The Gadget: Olympus' waterproof, shockproof, coldproof—and hot-tubproof—10-megapixel pocket cam with new controls that work when you are gloved and freezing, as I discovered over the past weekend in Park City, UT.

Besides sheer durability, Oly added some great UI enhancements. I typically don't give Olympus much credit for UI, but the main controls are straightforward and the icon-based menu is less confusing than the menu on most cameras

Olympus Stylus Tough-6000

 

The Olympus Tough 6000 the second toughest current digital camera, just being the more expensive Tough 8000. The Tough 6000 can be submerged underwater up to 3 meters for 2 hours and can be dropped from 1.5 meters onto concrete. This is a take-anywhere...

Extremely durable and waterproof to 3m, Ultra-slim wide-angle, Nicely saturated colors, Good white-balance, Low distortion, Excellent macro focus with led illumination, Effective shadow-adjust mode, somewhat strong, Excellent LCD visibility

Noisy at all ISO settings, moderate from ISO 400, High image softness, Overly bright exposure, Generally slow, Poor placement of lens, Display lag in continuous drive mode, Exposure compensation interface slow, Difficult to hold securely

The Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 is all about being a tough water-proof digital camera with a wide-angle lens. There are very few cameras like this but if you do not consider all these characteristics to be important, it is fairly easy to find a better...

Olympus Stylus Tough-6000

 

For some guys, late nights on the dance floor are as rugged as it gets - and this camera will take the beating.

Some rugged, freeze-proof and water-friendly cameras look like something you'd find at the beach or halfway up a vertical incline (Hello, Powershot D10!), but for droppable cameras that look at home in a night club as much as in a kayak, Olympus is the...

Olympus Mju Tough 6000 digital camera

 

The Olympus Mju Tough 6000 digital camera is the little brother to the Olympus Mju Tough 8000, but it doesn't take a step back in the photographic sta...

Waterproof (3m), shockproof (1.5m), dust-proof, snow-proof, easy to use

Exposure wasn't perfect, tap control doesn't let you change scene mode

There’s not much that we don’t like about the Olympus Mju Tough 6000. In fact, we think it's a lovely ruggedised camera that anyone with an adventurous bone in their body should put on their shopping list.
