Olympus µ Tough 8000 Digital Camera

Olympus has introduced the latest model of its µ Tough series digital camera – Olympus µ Tough 8000. The µ Tough 8000 is an ultra-tough compact digital camera that further enhanced on its waterproof and shockproof ability compared with the Olympus µ Touch 6000 model. The µ Tough 8000 is able to achieve water resistance up to 10 meters deep and shock resistance up to 2 meters high. It will also stand firm with 100kg of crushing pressure.
