Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 Review

Digital Photography Interface
18 July 2011
  • 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

  • Summary: Having a "tough" camera available can be a big advantage for your photography plans. My Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 review shows a model that can work in water depths up to 33 feet, can work in temperatures as low as 14 degrees, can survive a fall up to 6.6 feet, and can handle up to 220 pounds of...
  • 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

Review: Olympus Stylus Tough 8010

Wired
19 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Here at Wired, we can be rough on our cameras. We break them — a lot. So when Olympus updated its Stylus Tough series with the 8010, we knew we had to test its claims of ruggedized prowess.
  • Pros: 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.
  • Cons: Shutter is prohibitively slow. Photo quality not on par with similar rugged cameras. Menu system needs a serious overhaul.
