Olympus Mju Tough 6010 Review

 

As its name suggests, the Olympus Mju Tough 6010 is the latest shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof compact camera on the block. Freezeproof to -10 degrees Celsius, waterproof to 3m and shockproof against drops of up to 1.5m, the Olympus 6010 can...

So, if you're in the market for an all weather camera you can basically mistreat and not have to worry unduly about the consequences, should you buy the Olympus Mju Tough 6010 over strengthened rivals from the other big names? In its favour the Tough...

Olympus µ TOUGH-6010 flexes a bit more muscle

 

Whether you're a snow-sports adrenaline junkie, inveterate beach goer, or just like gear that can take a few bumps, Olympus µ TOUGH-6010 may be the camera for you. Shockproof, waterproof, and even freezepoof to -10°C (14°F), the µ TOUGH-6010 combines...

Of course with the word 'TOUGH' in the product name, there's an expectation that the camera will be quite rugged. Olympus designed the µ TOUGH-6010 for use when the going gets rough, wet and cold, and claims the camera can withstand drops from 5ft...

Olympus Mju Tough 6010 rugged camera

 

This rugged digital camera surprised us during our tests in dim lighting

Versatile and tough, surprisingly usable ISO 1600 pictures

Soft images, no AF assist, slow performance

Olympus' Mju Tough 6010 is a rugged camera that can be operated in almost any conditions. It doesn't snap particularly crisp images even in ideal conditions, but if you can live with this there is only a small loss in quality at higher ISO ranges.

Olympus mju Tough 6010

 

It's a waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof adventure camera, but can it take a decent picture?

The body shape is also more rounded, with softer corners, and lacks the industrial appearance of some previous models. It is comfortably into ultra-compact territory, measuring 95.3 x 63.4 x 22.4 mm, although this is in fact slightly larger than the...

Olympus Mju Tough-6010 digital camera

 

Olympus is no stranger to waterproofing cameras, they've been doing it for years. The Mju Tough-6010 comes in as an incremental step-up over the Tough-6000 bringing it up to 12 megapixels. Overall the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is a solid performer. Build...

Nice colour reproduction, good overall image quality, environment proofing

Lens cover, controls a little convoluted, far too expensive, video quality not great

Overall the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is a solid performer. Build quality is generally very good, save for the lens cover, which is a potential weakness. We were encouraged, however, that even once that part was "broken" the camera soldiered on without a...

Olympus Mju Tough 6010

 

The 6010 does exactly what it says on the tin and takes photos in extreme circumstances. It's unfortunate that they're not the best photos they could be.

Well priced for a tough camera ; LCD is bright and responsive ; Quicker than the Tough 6000 ; Good build quality

No separate battery charger ; No AF assist light ; Soft images

As this is an underwater camera first and foremost, it's difficult to judge the Olympus too harshly on its faults. It does exactly what it says on the tin — takes pictures in extreme circumstances. However, for a little more money there are other...

Olympus mju Tough 6010 review

 

It's thus much more solid than the average compact camera, but this means the Olympus mju Tough 6010 isn't exactly light. The 6010 model weighs 149 grammes - and that's without the battery. With it, we're talking 180g.

Although not the lightest of compact cameras, the Olympus mju Tough 6010 easily earns its place in your limited luggage allowance if you're about to embark on an adventurous trip. It isn't without its shortcomings on the manual control front, but it...

Olympus Mju TOUGH-6010

 

All-weather snapshot begging to be mistreated

If you strip away the protective qualities the Mju Tough 6010 offers a standard feature set at a premium price. It is fun to use however and allows for worry free photography in usually unforgiving conditions.
