Olympus mju Tough 6010


It's a waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof adventure camera, but can it take a decent picture?

The body shape is also more rounded, with softer corners, and lacks the industrial appearance of some previous models. It is comfortably into ultra-compact territory, measuring 95.3 x 63.4 x 22.4 mm, although this is in fact slightly larger than the...

Olympus Mju Tough-6010 digital camera


Olympus is no stranger to waterproofing cameras, they've been doing it for years. The Mju Tough-6010 comes in as an incremental step-up over the Tough-6000 bringing it up to 12 megapixels. Overall the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is a solid performer. Build...

Nice colour reproduction, good overall image quality, environment proofing

Lens cover, controls a little convoluted, far too expensive, video quality not great

Overall the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is a solid performer. Build quality is generally very good, save for the lens cover, which is a potential weakness. We were encouraged, however, that even once that part was "broken" the camera soldiered on without a...

Olympus Mju Tough 6010 review


The latest ruggedised compact camera from Olympus

Stupendous build quality ; Beautiful images ; Waterproof ; Foolproof

Expensive ; Slow continuous mode ; No manual control

Olympus mju Tough 6010 review


It's thus much more solid than the average compact camera, but this means the Olympus mju Tough 6010 isn't exactly light. The 6010 model weighs 149 grammes - and that's without the battery. With it, we're talking 180g.

Although not the lightest of compact cameras, the Olympus mju Tough 6010 easily earns its place in your limited luggage allowance if you're about to embark on an adventurous trip. It isn't without its shortcomings on the manual control front, but it...

Olympus Mju TOUGH-6010


All-weather snapshot begging to be mistreated

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


Outdoors types who want to be able to document themselves on the move, bombing down ski slopes or splashing about on the water's edge, inevitably need a reliable, sturdy camera capable of withstanding a bit of ...

This compact camera is easy to operate and looks very stylish considering it's built like a tank. With plenty of helpful scene modes to help you achieve pleasing shots whilst you're on the move, it's a good option for taking on an adventure holiday....

Olympus MJU Tough 6010


With its rugged characteristics the MJU Tough 6010 is likely to prove to be an attractive option to many people. In terms of picture quality it does not quite hit the heights the best cameras manage, but if you are after a tough snapshot camera it will...

Ease of use - waterproof - shockproof - freezeproof

High contrast scenes - lower light situations

The Olympus MJU Tough 6010 will handle most photo opportunities as long as you do not go overboard on print size. If picture quality means a lot to you then there are better bets out there, but taking into account all the features it is still a decent...

Olympus µTough 6010 rugged camera


The µTough 6010 lives up to its name: it can take a lot of punishment, is a reasonable looker, and gets the job done without being flashy.

Solid build quality, surprisingly useful tap controls, good outdoor performance, rugged enough to accompany just about any sports activity

Lacklustre indoor performance, heavier than most compacts, unremarkable styling, disenchanting "Magic Effects

Olympus Mju Tough-6010 review


Tough gadgets are all the rage at the moment. But while the Land Rover S1 and Nokia 3720 flex their guns at the double hard mobile party, trying to out do each other, the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is all out their on its own in the tough camera arena. But...

Tough as nails, works well in extreme conditions

Noisy pics, poor in low light

A decent camera with a double hard exterior, the Olympus Mju Tough-6010 is one of the toughest gadgets ever
