42nd Street Photo Reviews The Olympus Stylus Tough-8010

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is one of the most durable pocket cameras you’re going to find. Featuring a shockproof, waterproof, freezeproof, crushproof body. The Olympus 8010 is designed to take whatever the elements can come up with. This camera can survive a drop from 5 feet, 220 pounds of crushing pressure, to capture photos at up to 33 feet underwater, and even to be used in temperatures as low as 14 degrees Fahrenheit / -10 degrees Celsius, the photographer is likely to surrender long before the camera does.

The camera has features that allow you to capture the action even in low light. Dual Image Stabilization will keep your images sharp, and if the image is better captured in motion, the camera will take HD videos. The Olympus Stylus Tough-8010 employs a contrast-detection autofocus system operating off data streaming from the camera’s image sensor, and the Stylus 8010 also includes face detection capability, able to detect up to twelve faces in a scene simultaneously. All of these features make the Olympus Stylus Tough-8010 the perfect camera to take with you when the going gets tough.
