Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 First Look

by Reads (24)

Image quality and color reproduction look good, and default images seem to be satisfactory right out of the camera.

Autofocus acquisition time seems OK in good conditions, but has shown some tendencies to be a bit slow as light gets dimmer. Shutter lag seems to be not overly quick, but not molasses slow either.

At the nominal ISO sensitivity of 64, flash range suggests the built-in flash is not particularly powerful.

The camera didn’t leak on its voyage to the bottom of the pool (about 7 feet) and grabbed a shot of my trusty Nikonos sitting in a couple feet of water.

That won’t be the only water the Tough 3000 will encounter before the final verdict is rendered. The camera is easily shirt-pocket portable and seems to produce a nice quality image.

We’ll firm up our first impressions one way or the other and have a complete review of this Olympus compact in the not too distant future.
