My Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 Review
Feel and Control
Just like the predecessor Olympus Stylus Tough 8000, They have a lot of same features. The most common feature is the camera body. The weight of Tough 8010 is about 7.7 ounces, This is a traditional weight of any compact camera, The rugged body is comfortable to handle.
Some of my friends said the screen of Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is a little small,Because the screen size of their camera is about 3.0 inch, But i told them the smaller screen means the cute body, I’d like put it in my pocket, Even the pocket is so small.
I do not like the software in the camera, Maybe Olympus should let people edit the photo out of the camera on next generation.
Do you like the performance
Compared the competitors, The performance of Tough 8010 is not outstanding. I find this camera only has 33 feet waterproof, But the depth of other waterproof camera can reach the 40 feet.
The response time is not the strength of 8010, But the image and video quality are quite good with the 14 MP CCD Image Sensor, The best sensitivity setting is below ISO 800.
Only 200 photos could taken after once charge is not a good news for all of the user, That is meaning you would take some spare batteries if you want to go outside.
Verdict Of Olympus Stylus Tough 8010
“The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is a good option if you need something very rugged for shooting outdoors in good light, the conditions I expect most potential buyers will be using it in. Yes, it’s waterproof, shockproof, and freezeproof, but it’s also crushproof, which makes it more rugged than the competition. My biggest problem with it is its sluggish shooting performance that makes it difficult to use for anything other than landscapes and portraits of very patient subjects.” – cnet
All in all, If you want to get a waterproof camera which has a good image quality and has a big storage(about 2GB),The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 would be a good choice.
