Olympus Stylus Tough 8000

Price: $399

The Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is the latest incarnation of the rugged digital camera class Olympus created in 2006 with the waterproof and shockproof Stylus 720 SW. For a mountain biker, there’s nothing better than a camera you don’t have to worry about damaging in the rain or on the rocks. Personally, the waterproof and shockproof Olympus cameras have been responsible for volumes of photos I wouldn’t have taken because I was worried about wet or rugged conditions destroying my camera. I used the previous model, the Olympus Stylus 1030 SW most of 2009 on the bike and skis and it never let me down. I was reminded how much I value the waterproofing on my first ski day this season. I took a standard point-and-shoot camera but never took it out of the pouch because I was worried about getting it wet – no photos that day. The Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 will ensure you have a camera on every ride, no matter how nasty the conditions.
