Well this is new

So, it arrived a week ago, but I was not around to pick it up. However now I have it in my grubby little paws. What is it you say, well it is my Olympus Stylus Tough 8010.

Very pretty, so pretty in fact that I am mildly afraid to use it to its full potential. And it has some pretty high standards:

  • Waterproof: 33 ft
  • Crushproof: 220 lbs
  • Freezeproof
  • Dustproof 
  • Shockproof: 6.6 ft drop (onto corners!)
  • 29 shooting modes! (all fully customizable) 
  • macro, super macro, and a new feature called supermacro-i where an LED is used to illuminate the subject!
  • HD video: 720p
  • yadda yadda yadda
All in all I am very excited to use it on the trip to Maine and beyond. 

By the looks of it today is shaping up to be a great day for a trial of it, with its gale force winds and rain. I am very excited!

Look for an initial review, with images, soon.
