Need a camera that can keep up with someone (you?) who's active, daring, and/or an occasional risk-taker? Then check out the Olympus Stylus Tough-8000. This is one incredibly durable digital camera; it's shock, water, freeze, and crush proof - ummm, ok - resistant. Don't go driving your Hummer over it, or tossing into liquid Nitrogen. It's not quite that rugged but it sure can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. Drop it, splash it, toss it - then pick it up and take a photo or make a movie. The Tough-8000 is ready, willing, and able to capture all those future memories and help you share them with friends and family.
For sportsters indulging in the wintery and aquatic types of activities - listen-up -Tap Control is about to change your life. Playback, shadow adjustments, and flash mode can all be activated by simply tapping (tapping is not smashing) the top, sides, or back of the camera. No need to pull off the gloves, or fumble for a button - just bop it!
At this point you're probably saying to yourself: "Hmm.. this camera seems a lot like the Tough-6000". You would be right - it is very much like the Tough-6000, but it also has a crush-resistant LCD screen and higher resolution (12MP). With its enhanced durability and capture-performance, the Tough-8000 is in a class unto itself.
Shooting vistas or portraits? The Tough-8000 lets your creativity become a photographic reality. Your vision and intuition can finally come to fruition; whether it's a breathtaking scenic, or an intimate close-up. For those on-the-go shots we have two flavors of image stabilization: optical and digital. Use one or the other or both at the same time to keep those otherwise blurry photos sharp and clear.
