Olympus Stylus Tough-8000

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough-8000 can shoot down to 33 feet below, but a steep price tag and subpar performance sink this underwater shooter.

Ruggedized body protects camera from drops of up to 6.6 feet. Waterproof to 33 feet. Automatic lens cover keeps fingerprints and debris off the lens. Four underwater shooting modes. Tap controls for easy operation while wearing gloves.

Subpar image quality. No HD-video capture. Storage is limited to microSD and xD-Picture Card.

Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 review

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is one of the most durable pocket cameras you're going to find. Its metal body and shock-absorbing system can survive drops up to 6.6 feet and it's crushproof up to a weight of 220 pounds. On top of those things it is...

Nice design; wide-angle lens; good feature set.

Soft photos; slow performance.

For going from snorkeling to rock climbing to everyday life, the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is a good choice, though its photos and performance can be disappointing.

Olympus mju Tough 8000 Review

 

The Olympus mju Tough 8000 (also known as the Stylus Tough 8000) is the newest member of Olympus' extensive range of shockproof and waterproof digital cameras. Successor to the Olympus mju 1030 SW model, the mju Tough 8000 increases the megapixel count...

The Olympus mju Tough 8000 is a special camera. Built to resist a fall of two metres, the pressure of ten metres of water, the weight of a corpulent man and the cold of a Continental winter, it is a camera that you can take pretty much anywhere. From...

Olympus Stylus TOUGH-8000

 

Can take some abuse and keep shooting, but image and video quality are lackluster

Fairly accurate colors; Low distortion

Poor detail, especially with noise reduction; Low quality video

There’s no doubt that the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is a tough little camera. It can handle water to 33 feet, be dropped from 6 feet and temperatures down to a chilly 14 Fahrenheit and still keep taking photos. So it would not have a problem surviving...
