Olympus mju-Tough 6020 - Test Shots - Detail And Lens Performance

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture. File size 5.95MB.


The level of detail is good, and overall quality much improved over previous Olympus compacts.


The lens does produce some barrel distortion at wide angle, but it's not too obtrusive.


Centre sharpness is very good for a periscope lens.


Corner sharpness is also very good.

Glad to see Olympus finally abandoned the xD card. Name was a bit ... XDDD for the internet age.

Just one question. Is there a waterproof-shockproof camera with normal lens? I don't care for underwater shooting. I like taking normal photos with a camera that doesn't fear water and hard treatment without distorted pictures.

am I being thick - what is not 'normal' about the lens on this camera?

I presume by "normal" you mean an extending front-mounted lens? It would be very difficult to make a lens like that waterproof, but the closest would probably be the Canon D10, although the Pentax W90 and Ricoh G600 also have front-mounted lenses. Next week I'll be reviewing a new dive case from Seashell - waterproof to 40m - which can be adapted to fit most current small compact cameras, so watch this space...

Oups, sorry. I didn't see the camera shots in the review. I was in a hurry.

They look good. Previous years models had some problems with "overwater" shots. Had lens better suited for underwater.

Seems like technology has advanced and i have some lag.
