Summary: The camera works fine and pictures are very good. This is a used camera that is a few years old and has been replaced with an updated model. I found the required memory card is an older version and does not have the capacity of current models. Despite the "dated" technology, this camera works fine and does what it was designed to do very well.
Excerpt: First let me say I am a Canon girl. I love my Canons. This was a Christmas present. I needed a camera that I could take to the pool or the beach and not worry about. So it suits that purpose great! Now I'm just waiting on pool season to really test out the underwater capability!! Style-wise I love it! I have the gorgeous red color! The screen on back is huge! The menus and zoom buttons are easily accessible and pretty standard (super easy to use).
Excerpt: I have small children and live out of state from our families so I need a camera to take many different pictures. This camera takes wonderful pictures in a pool. They are clear and great quality. Night, snow and beach and action shots turn out great. You can purchase a flotation strap to put on it if you are at a lake or a really deep pool. That is a relief so you don't have to worry about losing it. It takes great videos with sound.
Good product for its cost! Practical and Generaly good!

Summary: I needed a tough camera that will take good quality pictures and I got it. It takes average/good pictures, not very great ones, sometimes on night take blurry pictures. But, in general it's good, practical and definitely tough.
Summary: My family and I bought the camera for a vacation to Jamaica, and I figured that it'd be great for just bumming around as well, instead of hauling my big cameras around with me everywhere. we also got it for a steal! $100 Off Of The Normal Price Of $279.00:D It excels in the point and shoot arena.
Pros: The Stylus Tough 6020 is simple to use even if you never looked at a manual. The controls are intuitive and smooth to use. The 14 megapixels make a great photo able to be printed quite large. It works really well in low light, and all the presets in scene mode have an explanation, in camera, in case you wonder what cuisine mode might be:D, It's so nice and small!
Cons: NOT Waterproof, but it is a fine Water Resistant camera., The stupid flash seems to want to go off even in the most brightly lit situations! You have to, EVERYTIME, Turn it off...Annoying., Other Than That, I Really Enjoy The Camera.
Excerpt: This camera is great for someone who enjoys taking their equipment out into areas where others would shy away from (eg: the beach, the ocean). It is horrible in low light, but in daytime or indoors with adequate lighting The camera is snappy, and takes pictures rather quickly. For a beginning photographer, this would be a good camera to get acquainted with. The menu is very simple and easy to use.
Summary: Excellent for taking to the beach and boating. I never had to worry about anything going wrong if it got splashed or wet. My kids enjoy taking videos with it. Love that I can take out the Media Card and slide it right in my computer! Pictures and videos transferred great and love the editing tools on the software included! Worked just as well inside as it did outside. A friend of mine has the new waterproof Fuji and her pictures are not at all as crisp and clear as mine.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
