Updated on April 6, 2013

Take This Olympus Waterproof Shockproof Digital Camera Almost Anywhere

It's not hard to find waterproof shockproof digital cameras these days. Everyone from Canon to Sony has models available, and all of them offer features such as being able to submerse your camera in water or knock it off a tabletop without worrying about it breaking. But the price range for these cameras varies a lot, from just under $200 to about $400. The Olympus Stylus Tough 6020 is near the bottom of the price range, but offers greater submersibility (down to 16 feet) and higher resolution (14 megapixels) than some of the other cameras that cost more. Read on to learn more about the features and get reviews from people using this camera.

Olympus Stylus Tough 6020 Waterproof Shockproof Digital Camera Reviews

Amazon reviewers rave about this camera. As of this writing, nearly 200 reviewers have rated it, with the largest number of reviewers giving it 5 stars. Here's what they have to say:

  • All of my photos taken with the 6020 are perfect, unless I do something wrong.
  • Anyone who buys this great little camera will love it and have great success with sharp, clean, well colored photos!
  • It is by far one of the best little point and clicks that I have had and I have had at least 5 in the past 5 years.
  • Amazing product, as I dropped it in pool and forgot about it, found it after 30 mins and this camera was working as normal as it was before!
  • The menu is easy to understand and the screen is huge, which is great.
  • The best feature I have used so far is the panaramic veiw and how easy it is to use and how it leaves part of the last frame on there so you can line it up just right.
  • This camera rocks! ...(It) has been dropped by a 3 year old on the concrete, used to snorkel under water, and caught some wonderful spur of the moment HD video.
  • Back in 2006 I started carrying one of the original Olympus Tough 7 Mp cameras with me in Iraq. I carried that camera there for 19 months without a glitch. Every day it was in my cargo pocket ready for action no matter the environment, sand storms, cold, hot, dust, and it recieved its fair share of dents and scratches along the way. During an R&R in Antigua in 2007, I lost it it a shallow tide pool while snorkling. We found it the next day after searching for a bit, I pulled it from the sandy bottom and powered it up, still underwater, and was able to take shots right away... I have purchased two others since then, both 10 Mp models and they are performing flawlessly.
