Expect the new Olympus baby – Stylus Tough 6010 (µ TOUGH-6010 in Europe) – to perform just as bravely as it sounds while on rough terrain. This new member of the Olympus rugged and compact series is waterproof upto 3-metres, shockproof upto 1.5-metres and freeze-proof upto -10 degrees Celsius. Which makes it good enough to carry on your next adventure trip without the usual jittery feeling that you get with a normal digital camera.
The technical specifications include a 12-MP sensor, a 2.7″ LCD screen with Tap Control, 3.6X optical zoom, 45MB internal memory with xD/microSD card options. The other new features thrown in – an i-Auto intelligent mode which “uses advanced automatic detection technology to allow the camera to recognise the five most commonly used scenes automatically”, and Magic Filters which “enable special artistic effects to be created directly in the camera”.
While you wait to lay your hands on one this month, we daresay you will need more than just spare change to pamper yourself with this beastie – it costs a whopping 8.
