Olympus Stylus Tough 6010

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Take the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 from earlier this year, throw in a 12 megapixel sensor, Magic Filters and (presumably) tweak its circuitry, and you’ll get the Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 over here. The Stylus Tough 6010 is an in-between model positioned in the middle of the Stylus Tough 6000 and 8000 models introduced earlier this year. The Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 inherits all the goodies and features (sans smile detection) from its 10 megapixel sibling.
  • Pros: Rugged design: waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, LED illuminator is handy for macro/low-light shooting, Tap Control improves ease of use slightly, Improved performance from Stylus 6000 (though still not the best), Nicely viewable LCD screen, Intelligent Auto mode, Magic Filters and built-in help tooltips for shooting functions, Perfect Shot Preview, Shadow Adjustment and playback editing tools, Good image quality till ISO 400
  • Cons: No manual controls, Above average levels of image softness (even in the center), Tiny, cluttered buttons on the back, Movie mode not fantastic, max VGA 30 FPS requires xD-card to be used, Low-light performance (ie focusing and high ISO) is not fantastic

  • Summary: This camera laughs in the face of danger, sneers at extreme conditions and looks a bit awkward at a posh tea party. An essential purchase if you want stunning ski, surf or stag party snaps, just don’t expect the best image quality ever.

  • Conclusion: It's true that the Tough isn't without its drawbacks, but if you're looking for a camera which takes superb-quality images and will withstand just about anything you can throw at it, consider this £300 well-spent.

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

3 September 2010
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Versatile and tough, surprisingly usable ISO 1600 pictures
  • Cons: Soft images, no AF assist, slow performance

Olympus Mju Tough 6010

PhotographyBLOG
26 April 2010
  • Excerpt: It can indeed be 'tough' to make your product stand out in an ever-crowded compact market, especially given that sales have gradually slowed now interest has shifted to affordable DSLRs and fancy new hybrid cameras. So, not only does the boxy, protective rubber o-ring sealed Olympus Mju Tough 6010 work hard to catch the attention of the casual observer by being freezeproof to -10°C, drop proof from heights of up to 1.5 metres, plus shockproof to JIS 6 standard, it also...

  • Conclusion: 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.

Olympus mju Tough-6010

CNET
11 November 2009
  • Summary: Most underwater compacts have to use internal 'folded' lenses, so it's unwise to expect stellar image quality. Even so, the Olympus mju Tough-6010's pictures are rather disappointing.
  • Pros: Smart and chunky styling; 3.8x wideangle zoom range.
  • Cons: Lens becomes hazy towards the edges; heavy noise reduction and smoothing; over-complicated EV compensation.
