About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Although I did not test all of the "tough" features of the Stylus Tough 8000 -- there's something just not right about trying to force yourself to drop a loaner camera from 6 feet in the air -- it's very obvious that this model is one of the most well built point and shoot cameras around.
  • Pros: Camera has a very sturdy feel and look, 12 megapixels of resolution is above average, Several easy-to-use shooting modes, Close-up images are sharp, LCD is very sharp and bright
  • Cons: Price is a little high, Subtle markings make camera's buttons tough to decipher, Start-up time is a little slow, Stray noise shows up in photos occasionally, 3.6X optical zoom lens could be larger

Digitaltrends
11 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Although we certainly like the tough concept and the ability to kiss your worries goodbye if drop your camera , step on it by mistake or take it into the snow and water without a care in the world, a digicam still has to take good pictures.
  • Pros: Definitely takes a beating; attractive styling; nice wide-angle lens; good attempt at tap control
  • Cons: Expensive; slow response; pictures ain't great; loads of noise at 400 ISO and above

Olympus Tough

  • Excerpt: I normally think of Olympus as a manufacturer of removable lens cameras which normally makes then larger than pocket size. Here a unit that will easily fit in a pocket and also one that can survive the odd drop or immersion in water.
