Olympus Stylus Tough-6000 - An Action Camera with Style!
Introduction: The Tough 6000 model of the Olympus Stylus line is meant for those who need a tough camera that can withstand the ravages of snow, water and occasional slips from your hands. Ideal for adventure-seekers, this camera will stand by you through thick and thin and will try to capture the best moments of your life without a miss. Whether you are surfing, skiing or gliding, trust this camera with your photos and you will see for yourself why we call it a tough camera.
Features: Olympus understands that balancing the camera is not feasible while indulging in adventurous activities. That is why, it has come up with a 2-in-1 anti-blur solution that works in sync with the unique Sensor-shift image stabilization feature to deliver a shake-free image that has been impossible to achieve in action photography till now. Simply tap on the camera to tweak the flash and shadow settings; this feature will be handy when you have your gloves on.
• The camera has been water-proofed to allow you to shoot without flinching even at 10 feet deep waters. Gaskets and seals embedded in its body will see to it that there is no seepage of water into its body parts.
• Ability to shoot pictures of 10 megapixels resolution with 3.6 x optical zoom that too in 10 feet below waters is a great feat not many cameras can boast about.
• With the help of in-camera Panorama feature you can merge three different images into one to obtain a comprehensive view of the landscape you have locked in.
• Defying the general assumption that tough guys are ever-active the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000 is incredibly lazy in its performance. Good amount of time lapses in between shots and even the shutter lag is hopeless.
• The XD format media used for this camera is expensive when compared to the alternative media options.
• The camera looks over-priced considering the mediocre quality images it delivers.
