Take your photos to the extreme. The STYLUS TOUGH-8000 is virtually indestructible. Whether you’re kayaking downriver or skiing a double diamond, it’s hard to hurt this camera. Breakthrough features like Dual Image Stabilization and Tap Control provide the clearest images under the most challenging conditions.

SHOCKPROOF (6.6ft.)
Life can be tough, this camera is tougher. Rugged metal body and revolutionary shock-absorbing construction are designed to withstand a 6.6-foot drop, bump or other mishap.

WATERPROOF (33ft.)
A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 33 feet underwater.

FREEZEPROOF (14°F/-10°C)
Boldly enter that winter wonderland without worrying about your camera. This camera is winterized to perform at below-freezing temperatures.

CRUSHPROOF (220lbf.)
With a rugged body and reinforced LCD, the STYLUS TOUGH-8000 withstands up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are protected.

DUAL IMAGE STABILIZATION
Forget about blurry shots with this 2-in-1 anti-blur solution. Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization compensates for camera shake to keep your shots steady while Digital Image Stabilization captures crisp, clear images in any situation.

Features:

  • Durable metal body with an innovative shock-absorbing technology protects it from drops of up to 6.6 feet.
  • A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 33 feet underwater.
  • It's Freezeproof to 14°F/-10°C. Perfect for skiing, snowboarding, sledding and other winter fun, this camera is winterized to perform at below-freezing temperatures!
  • With its rugged body and reinforced LCD, the STYLUS TOUGH-8000 is designed to withstand up to 220 pounds of pressure so your camera and images are always protected.
  • Operate picture playback, shadow adjustment, flash mode and more just by tapping the top, back and sides of the camera. Tap Control is ideal for underwater use or when wearing gloves.
  • In-Camera panorama captures three images and stitches them together to create one amazing panoramic picture by simply pressing the shutter button and slowly panning across a panoramic scene.
  • Using a live, multi-frame window on the LCD, you can preview the effects of various settings, select and capture the perfect shot.
  • More than 12 million pixels in the high-resolution CCD create superior image quality. Create poster-sized prints without losing a single detail.
  • In addition to xD-Picture Card compatibility, the STYLUS TOUGH-8000 comes with an adapter for microSD memory card, an emerging electronic storage media for mobile phones, PDAs and HDTVs.
  • This large LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare technology for easier composing and shooting even in direct, bright sunlight.
  • Sensor-Shift Image stabilization combined with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds capture crisp, clear images even if the subject is moving.
  • A 3.6x wide-angle optical zoom captures even more of the subject into each shot. The lens does not protrude from its body so it is further protected from harsh conditions.
  • Soften shadows and smooth wrinkles or blemishes on your subject’s face as you capture the image. Edits can also be made after taking the picture to avoid costly image editing software.
  • Tracks up to 3 faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposures for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.

      Comments about Olympus Stylus Tough 12 Megapixel Digital Camera:

      Picture quality is amazing. Good strong flash and will do fill-flash. I haven't read the instruction manual yet as the camera itself is so user friendly you can figure it out by yourself. I bought the "tough" model because I have dropped cameras before and destroyed them. I wanted the ability to use it in cold weather (and try the "tap" feature to take photos) and not worry that if left in a hot car that it would affect the camers (like my friend's Canon which won't take in-focus photos anymore after being left in a hot car). Doesn't get much better than this.

        Comments about Olympus Stylus Tough 12 Megapixel Digital Camera:

        This camera has some great features. The beauty feature is amazing especially for those out at night pictures in a club, party, restaurant, etc... It really cleans up any blemishes on faces very nicely. The camera is also great underwater. 33' without a case is very convenient for a diver/free diver or even around the beach. My only complaint is as a regular point and shoot the overall picture quality is soso. It takes great pics but other point and shoots take better shots. If you are looking for mainly a point and shoot around the water this is the camera for you. If water is not an issue I would try different models.

        Comments about Olympus Stylus Tough 12 Megapixel Digital Camera:

        OK I should have spent a little more time with the manual, there is so much this camera can do that I will never know. However, we picked up this camera a week before going to the Bahamas and just started taking photos. underwater, down a water slide, in the ocean, waterfalls all the photos came out great. Oh and it takes photos on land too go figure.

        The SCM mode let us choose the best situation for underwater, other wise we just left it in auto and it was great. I picked up a 2 gig storage card so that we did not have to upload during the trip .

        Very nice camera. Took it to a rafting trip. Full water immersion, rough handling, etc. No problems at all. Nice photos.
        User Menu is easy to read and being a compact sports camera, there are quite a few of nice programs appropriate for such a camera and none of the gimmicks that often make menus cumbersome. Would buy again

            Great Camera in terms of operability and image quality. IQ is based on few, but relevant scenarios: indoor guitar concert, low light tests, panorama, etc.
            Comapred to this camera, my cybershot is a doorstop - at best. Easy to go through the menues, solid build. Bought it for outdoors but have not tried it there yet.
