Olympus Mju Tough-6000 digital camera

 

So you think you're hard? Well that's what Olympus believe with its Tough range of digital cameras. But are they? And more importantly do they take good pictures? We get rugged to find out. With a price to match your average 10-megapixel compact...

Tough, waterproof, freezeproof, dropproof, price, rugged

Images were soft, dropping it might not damage the camera but it will damage your floor or foot, xD or microSD only, fiddly buttons on rear

With a price to match your average 10-megapixel compact camera, the Olympus Mju Tough-6000 offers a good rugged approach without trying to sting you for it.

Olympus µ Tough-6000 review

 

Even if we disregard this problem, the poor performance, low quality shots and high noise mean that we can't recommend this camera.

Olympus mju TOUGH 6000

 

Ultra-hard Olympus mju TOUGH 6000 is a near-indestructible compact camera, but does image quality hinder? What Digital Camera's Olympus Mju Tough 6000 review.

Ard as nails, good macro mode, shock/freeze/crush proof - perfect for outdoors or the kids

Flat underexposed images, highlights bleed, limited sharpness, low battery life

All in all, the Olympus mju TOUGH 6000 is designed to be rugged out in the field. Whilst it achieves this with flying colours and is extremely well placed in the hands of, well, anyone - from plain clumsy to hardcore extreme sports fans or mountaineers...

Olympus MJU Tough 6000

 

I like this camera. Obviously its main attraction is the fact it is waterproof, shockproof and freezeproof, but it also takes a decent snapshot and is easy to use. If you are looking for a family camera knowing it might get the odd knock then this is...

Robust features - ease of use

Start up and shutter lag times

The Olympus MJU Tough 6000 does what it sets out to do. As well as being a robust digital camera it can take a good snapshot and you should have no problems finding your way around the camera.

Olympus Mju Tough-8000/6000

 

A couple of months ago, I watched an Olympus representative throw one of the company's new Tough cameras onto a Formica tabletop. The assembled journalists, myself included, winced as it banged off the furniture, but we weren't wincing out of concern...

What other camera can you freeze, crush and soak and still get a picture? Tap controls work well, and may save the day in extreme cold or underwater. Beauty mode should endear you to blotchy loved ones

If you don't get on with the tap controls, the Tough's fiddly buttons can be a pain, images are very noisy at medium and high ISO settings, and it has a limited zoom range for the price

Olympus - µ TOUGH-6000

 

When a camera has ‘tough' in the title you know that it's going to be out of the ordinary, and the Olympus µ TOUGH-6000 is not the kind of digital camera to let you kick sand ...

Probably the perfect holiday companion; rugged, resilient, fun and feature packed, the µ TOUGH-6000 will produce exceptional picture quality in the most demanding of natural conditions and still look cool.

Olympus [Mju] TOUGH-6000 review

 

The Olympus mju Tough 6000 is - as the name suggests - a tough cookie of a compact. Touting freezeproof, crushproof, shockproof and waterproof benefits to its name, is the Olympus mju Tough 6000 all muscle, even when it comes to quality pictures? What...

All in all, the Olympus mju TOUGH 6000 is designed to be rugged out in the field. Whilst it achieves this with flying colours and is extremely well placed in the hands of, well, anyone - from plain clumsy to hardcore extreme sports fans or mountaineers...

Olympus Mju Tough 6000 digital camera

 

The Olympus Mju Tough 6000 digital camera is the little brother to the Olympus Mju Tough 8000, but it doesn't take a step back in the photographic sta...

Waterproof (3m), shockproof (1.5m), dust-proof, snow-proof, easy to use

Exposure wasn't perfect, tap control doesn't let you change scene mode

There’s not much that we don’t like about the Olympus Mju Tough 6000. In fact, we think it's a lovely ruggedised camera that anyone with an adventurous bone in their body should put on their shopping list.
