The Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is one of the most durable pocket cameras you're going to find. Its metal body and shock-absorbing system can survive drops up to 6.6 feet and it's crushproof up to a weight of 220 pounds. On top of those things it is...

Nice design; wide-angle lens; good feature set.

Soft photos; slow performance.

For going from snorkeling to rock climbing to everyday life, the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is a good choice, though its photos and performance can be disappointing.

Although the Tough-8000 is more rugged than the 6000, its disappointing image quality prevents it from being more than average.

Olympus µ TOUGH-8000

 

Tough by name and the Olympus Tough [mju:] 8000 is certainly tough by nature. The shock proof and water proof compact has been dunked, dropped, beaten, stood on, thrown and submerged into a tank full of sharks and it still is as good as the first...

Olympus MJU Tough 8000

 

This is a robust digital camera at home around water or on the ski slopes. It is also drop proof and crush proof. It takes a good picture and is worth a good look if you are after a digital camera anyone in the family can use.

Robust features - ease of use

Watch out for a loss of detail in light areas of your shots

The Olympus MJU Tough 8000 does the job it sets out to do. It is certainly a tough camera. You can use it more or less anywhere. It takes a good snapshot for most photo opportunities.
