Conclusion: The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is still relevant in today’s digital camera market since it’s a really tough (literally) camera. If it weren’t for its ruggedness, it would have been gone with the wind by now, or more appropriately, gone with last year’s models.
Pros: Decent image quality; good for outdoor shooting, Rugged design: waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, dustproof and freezeproof; one of the most rugged cameras in the market, Useful LED lamp for closeup and low-light shooting, Plenty of internal memory; SD/SDHC support, Good movie mode, Intelligent...
Cons: No manual controls, Chromatic aberration (color fringing) and soft edges a minor issue, Detail loss and smudging from noise reduction at higher ISO, Below average battery life, Poor continuous shooting mode, Small and cluttered buttons

Pros: Tough features are handy in poor weather, Panel protecting memory card and battery slots is especially secure
Cons: Response times, especially start-up time, are below average, Overall image quality could be a little better, LCD is a little small, but is of good quality, MSRP is a little high, although price has fallen a bit, Menus can be a little tough to learn to use
Conclusion: Three versions of panorama mode are available: auto (when the camera automatically stitches two images), manual (where user shoots and aligns the edges of three successive images) and PC (where the user shoots up to ten images to stitch themselves via editing software.
