As part of our our roundup of tough/waterproof cameras, we've completed a review Olympus Stylus 8000, which leads that company's lineup in that category.
Olympus pioneered the "tough" concept in digital cameras, so it's no surprise that the Olympus 8000 leads all others in the field, in at least one of its specifications against each competitor Waterproof to 33 feet, shockproof to 6.6 feet, crushproof to 220 lbs, and freezeproof to 14 degrees F, the Olympus 8000 is the go-to camera for the ultimate in ruggedness. In our tests, it also did better than most when it came to image quality, and senior editor Shawn found it plenty responsive when shooting with it in the field as well. If built-like-a-block-of-metal toughness is what you need, the Olympus Tough 8000 is "tough" to beat.
