Olympus µ TOUGH-3000

 

If there's one problem with taking your compact camera on holiday, it's the prospect of sand and water coming near your expensive gadget. The [mju:] Tough-3000 is set to counter such peril. The camera is rated waterproof to a depth of 3m thanks to...

Olympus MJU Tough 3000

 

This is a fairly standard, robust digital camera. It is waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof. It can take a good snap shot, but I was concerned by its slow response times. That is a shame as I also found this camera easy to use.

Ease of use - USB battery charging - 0.6GB of built in memory - built in manual - robust features

Turn on time - shutter delay - LCD screen quality

I like the fact Olympus has added the current settings for main features down the side of the LCD screen. This means you can see instantly what the main settings are. It also makes them very easy to change. There is also a built in manual.

Olympus Mju Tough 3000 Review

 

The Olympus Mju Tough 3000 (also known as the Stylus Tough 3000) is the newest member of Olympus' extensive range of shockproof and waterproof digital camera range. The Mju 3000 features high-definition video recording for the first time on a Tough...

The Mju Tough 3000 brings Olympus' all-action camera range to a wider audience thanks to it's budget price-tag, but at the expense of an ill-thought-out control system and below par image quality. Although it isn't quite as tough as previous models,...

Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 Review

 

The waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 can handle almost any adverse condition.

Good image, color quality ; Waterproof ; Shock resistant

Below average shutter lag and AF acquisition times ; Below average battery life

Image quality is good and the one-button video capture is a definite advantage considering the places and activities where the camera may see use. Shutter lag and AF acquisition times could be better but are not fatal. Battery life may be problematic...

Olympus Mju Tough 3000

 

Small and compact. Easy to carry around in pocket without case. Freezeproof.

Had to remove glove to take picture as button was small which is not good for your hands in sub zero temperatures.

Olympus Mju Tough 3000

 

Good looking and sturdy build. Very nice compact size which can easily fit into a pocket. Easy to use, and the menu system works well.

I can't seem to find a way of changing the default settings when the camera is switched on, I could on my previous Olympus. I would like the camera to start in 'Auto' mode very time rather than having to select it each time I turn the camera on.
