Introduced at CES 2010, the Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 is the latest update to Olympus’ deathproof line of cameras.
It’s got a 3.6x zoom, 12MP sensor, shoots 720p video and offers Image Stabilization built-in. The Touch 3000 can withstand 5 foot drops, can be submerged in water up to 10 feet. It can also deal with cold weather down to -14 degrees and can be eaten by polar bears and still come out firing. While the polar bear part doesn’t come from Olympus’ press conference, I’m pretty sure that it’s capable after some hands-on time.
The Tough 3000 should be available in February 2010 and carries an initial retail price of $229.99. Check availability on Amazon.com.
