Olympus Stylus Tough 3000
High end point-and-shoot digital cameras can cost you a bunch of c-notes. There are so many choices. it's hard to separate the good from the bad and the reasonably priced from the overpriced.

Olympus released the Stylus Tough 3000 recently into the growing line of digital cameras specially designed for rough-and-tumble outdoor activities. The Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 has the following features:

  • 12 megapixels
  • 3.6x wide angle optical zoom lens
  • 2.7 inch LCD display
  • Water, shock and freeze proof
  • Record HD movies in 720p
  • 1GB internal memory

The Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 is touted as being waterproof to 10 feet, and it does work exceptionally for taking pictures around the pool and for crystal clear ocean waters. The flash is powerful enough to assist in illuminating underwater shots in lower lit settings.

The camera is advertised as shockproof from falls up to 5 feet. The Stylus Tough 3000 was repeatedly dropped on soft to hard surfaces. The camera continued to work without a glitch after each fall. This helps protect it when its being tossed around in your pack, and the camera will be accidentally dropped dozens of times. The Stylus Tough also is freezeproof to temperatures down to 14 degrees (Fahrenheit).

Olympus LogoThe picture quality is solid and the AF Tracking and image stabilization features are helpful for shooting fast-moving wildlife. Olympus offers the Stylus Tough 3000 in 4 colors – red, blue, pink and green. The Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 has an MSRP of $229.99. It is priced lower than some of the competitor's cameras and is recommended if you are looking to save a buck and need its ruggedness.
