Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 review: Olympus Stylus Tough 8010

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is one of the most durable pocket cameras you're going to find. Its metal body and shock-absorbing system can survive drops of up to 6.6 feet and it's crushproof up to a weight of 220 pounds. On top of those things it is...

Extremely rugged for a compact; very good feature set; full, built-in user manual; 1.6GB of internal memory for photos, video.

Frustratingly slow performance; soft photos; pricey.

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is rugged on the outside, but average on the inside.

Olympus Stylus Tough-8010

 

With its tap-enabled interface, the Olympus Stylus Tough-8010 is a good fit for those who want a top-of-the-line rugged build, HD video capture, and a camera that's easy to operate while using gloves.

Good image quality with low noise. Water-, freeze-, drop-, and crush-proof. Tap-enabled interface. Lens is protected by a retracting shield. 2GB of internal storage. In-camera manual and guide.

Pricey. Images are soft towards the outer areas of the frame. Noticeable shutter lag. Long delays between shots. LCD shows motion blur.

Review: Olympus Stylus Tough 8010

 

Run it over, drop it from great heights, drown it. The rugged Olympus 8010 can meet any physical challenge set before it.

The Chuck Norris of point-and-shoots — virtually indestructible. More functions than we know what to do with. No casing needed to take pictures under the sea

Shutter is prohibitively slow. Photo quality not on par with similar rugged cameras. Menu system needs a serious overhaul

Olympus Tough-8010

 

The Olympus Stylus Tough-8010 is the latest in Olympus's Tough series of take-a-licking, keep-on-ticking digital cameras. Featuring a shockproof, waterproof, freezeproof, crushproof body--we're starting to wonder just how many more things Olympus can...

A wide-angle, non-protruding lens ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; Durable construction ; Deep underwater capability--33 feet ; Shockproof to a drop from 5 feet ; Freezeproof to 14F or -10C ; Crushproof to 220 pounds of pressure ; In-camera manual...

Sluggish performance ; Redundant controls ; Power button small, not always responsive ; Poor battery life ; Weak flash ; AF struggles in low light ; Few manual controls ; LCD somewhat dim in bright sunlight ; No relay recording between internal memory...

Ultimately, it's hard to find a more rugged camera, but the Olympus Tough-8010 really needs a speed improvement. Most people needing a rugged camera would also like a fast one for capturing their lives in action. Last year's Stylus Tough-8000 was a...

Olympus Tough 8010 review

 

Olympus's armour-plated compact might be the toughest camera we've seen. But can it match the performance of Panasonic's FT2?

A seriously tough compact cookie, but lacks the usability and picture performance of Panasonic’s rugged FT2
