The Olympus TOUGH-6020 not only takes quality 14 megapixel photographs it is waterproof to depths of 5 metres, freezeproof to -10°C and shockproof to the point were it will withstand accidental drops from heights of up to 1.5 metres.

Olympus have incorporated the latest technologies in the TOUGH 6020 including Dual Image Stabilisation to combat camera shake and to help avoid those blurred images.

It also has Magic Filters such as Fish-Eye with its distorted 180-degree perspective, Sketch which gives the impression that your subjects have been sketched and Pin Hole which reduces the peripheral brightness of your images to make them appear as if they are being seen through a pinhole. The Magic Filters are great fun and help release the David Bailey in you and allow you to be more creative with your shots.

The camera has a 5x optical zoom (28-140mm) providing a wide range of framing opportunities such as close ups, group portraits and the distant shots. Memory has not been compromised and it boasts a large 1GB internal memory and also an SD card shot which means you will not be short of capacity for video footage or stills.

For those who want to shoot video footage the TOUGH 6020 is capable of film High Definition video in 16:9 widescreen ratio and allows you to play back footage in your living room on an HD TV set courtesy of the HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connection.

There is in fact a host of technologies incorporated in the TOUGH 6020 from AF tracking a system that tracks moving subjects to keep them continuously in focus to Advanced Face Detection Technology which searches for faces in a composition and recognises them as the main subject then adjusting its settings accordingly.

The Olympus TOUGH-6020 not only performs well it also looks great and comes in a choice of four colours including Midnight Black, Candy Pink, Steel Blue and Cosmic Green.

At the time of writing the review the Olympus TOUGH-6020 cost around £169 but if you shop around you may get a better deal.
