Olympus Stylus TOUGH-8000

Risks are in; taking risks is now the thing to go with and people are constantly pushing the limits with technologies as well as lives. Thus, camera companies are trying to keep pace with this trend, by coming out with the Stylus TOUGH range. The TOUGH 8000 is another brave soldier of this very battalion and is true to the series name durable yet of immense artistic utility for the user too. A resolution of 12 mp and a zoom range of 3.6x that this camera offers, along with the durability of taking up to 100kg of weight without getting crushed make this an easy choice for those who have butter fingers!

Design and Functioning

With a tough exterior that speaks of its internal strength and endurance, this camera comes in three very male colours Platinum Silver, Midnight Black and Steel Blue, which suits its rugged image anyway. It comes with the Dual Image Stabilization technique that stabilizes images not only mechanically but also digitally. Since it can very well be used to take underwater pictures, it comes with an LED illuminator to provide light for pictures under water or even for pictures taken in the macro mode. Its on-screen manometer instantly reads the air and water pressure. Like many other varieties of this very same range from Olympus, this camera also comes with a TAP control menu that will ease the process of taking pictures. Instead of just the XD storage card, this camera is compatible with microSD storage cards too.
