Olympus mju Tough 7000
Olympus stay tough with the new µ Tough-3000 digital camera. It's a camera you don't have to worry about getting back in one piece as it's waterproof to 3m, shockproof to 1.5m and freezeproof to -10°C.

It will be available in Oxide Red, Turquoise Blue, Hot Pink and Emerald Green from March 2010.

Press Release:


Perfect for everyday adventures, the new µ Tough-3000 is the latest addition to Olympus’ school of hard knocks. With new features such as an HD movie function and [ib] software, the wallet-friendly model aims to please. It inherits the award-winning µ Tough-8000 3.6x wide optical zoom, and has been fitted with everything from Dual Image Stabilisation to Magic Filters. Waterproof to 3m, shockproof to 1.5m, and freezeproof to -10°C, the 12Mp model will be available from March 2010 with the retail price TBC.

Whether it’s being flung into a backpack or passed around at a family party, you’ll never have to worry about getting the µ Tough-3000 back in one piece. But the model isn’t just sturdy – it has a number of new features to boot:
  • HD movie recording and HDMI interface
  • 1 GB internal memory and SD card slot
  • Photo Surfing
  • [ib] software
  • USB charging
Chronicle all the action in an HD movie and show your friends on a TV connected via HDMI or flip through images easily on the spot with Photo Surfing. Thanks to Olympus’ new [ib] software, you can quickly locate those particular events, people and locations tagged using GPS, Face Detection, or the date. Group portraits as well as shots of a favourite band rocking-out on stage come out just as you imagined with the versatile 3.6x wide optical zoom (28-102mm). Also a plus: you’ll never be left wanting for space or caught with a dead battery with the convenient 1GB of internal memory, an additional SD card slot and a practical USB charger.

Besides all that, the µ Tough-3000’s In-Camera Manual is on hand whenever you need help or some tricks. And just like with the rest of the Tough family, a variety of trusted Olympus features from Beauty Mode and i-Auto, AF Tracking to Dual Image Stabilisation make taking great shots easy.

The shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof µ Tough-3000 is an affordable solution to capture all of life’s surprises. It will be available in Oxide Red, Turquoise Blue, Hot Pink and Emerald Green from March 2010.
