As part of our roundup of tough/waterproof cameras, we've completed an Express Review of the Olympus 6000.
This is the middle model in Olympus' 3-camera waterproof lineup, but it doesn't rise to the level of the dominant Olympus 8000. Our particular sample apparently had a problem with a tilted sensor chip, but our biggest complaint was the Tough 6000's very slow shutter response and shot to shot cycle time. That said, though, it's by far the least expensive camera model offering anything near its toughness rating. If you'll mainly be photographing landscapes and static shots, but need a really tough camera, the Olympus 6000 could do the job for you.
