The Goods: Another Kanye West-Proof Camera

News

By: cyuscavage / February 5, 2010

Last month, we posted up a piece about the indestructible Casio Exilim G EX-G1 camera. We made all sorts of jokes about Kanye West breaking cameras and Mike Tyson breaking cameras, too. Well, we’re gonna skip all that this time but we are gonna point out that, apparently, Casio was onto something. Because now Olympus is dropping their Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 and 6020 cameras that promise to be every bit as strong as the Casio. Boasting a frame that’s shockproof, waterproof, crushproof and freezeproof, these cameras are designed to stand up to the roughest elements—or, you know, a Saturday night at the local dive. At $400, the 8010 can handle a slightly higher fall than the $300 6020 model. But they both manage to capture 14 megapixels, 720p video recording and a 5x optical zoom. Just watch out where you point these things, okay? —Chris Yuscavage
