CNET UK has reviewed the Olympus mju TOUGH-6010 digital compact camera. This rugged Olympus camera can handle depths down to 3 meters and is also shockproof in addition to having the so-called Art filters.

Some key features for the Olympus mju TOUGH-6010:
-12 megapixel sensor
-3.6x optical zoom lens (28-102mm)
-2.7″ LCD screen with Tap Control
-image stabilization
-magic filters
-waterproof down to 3 meters
-shockproof up to 1.5 meters
-freeze proof to -10 degrees Celsius

CNET UK ends up giving the Olympus mju TOUGH-6010 a mediocre 6.1 out of 10 score. The reason for this score is as the lens produces unsharp pictures at the edges. The noise reduction software from Olympus is a bit overactive making the pictures smothered. On the positive side the reviewer likes the design of the camera and the zoom range is useful.
