The Olympus Tough TG-610 does the job it sets out to do quite well. As well as its robust features there is nothing especially difficult about operating it. It produces fair quality snapshots without matching the quality on offer from the best robust...

Picture quality is mid range. Whether or not the Olympus Tough TG-610 is the right camera for you could well depend on the type of pictures you are looking to take. If you are looking for a camera purely to produce small snapshots then picture quality...

The Olympus TOUGH TG-610 would be the perfect rugged digital camera to take with you on seaside and snow holidays with its water friendly features, good quality imagery and fun effects, were it not let down by a sloppy navigation control.

Olympus TG-610

 

Olympus is well known for the rugged nature of its Tough camera series, and the TG-610 follows in the same manner but with a bit of a twist for Australian buyers.

Review: Olympus TG-610 Tough Digital Camera

 

Olympus has just launched its Quicksilver-branded TG-610 tough series of digital cameras- giving this brand a real Australian outdoorsy flavour.

tough, easy to use and good picture output

clunky buttons and a style-free design

So my only gripe were the clunky buttons and perhaps also the late-90s styling – retro may be in but it doesn't mean I have to like it. All-in-all, the Olympus TG-610 is an easy to use solid little performer in an ever-increasing field.
