Where to Buy

It comes in four different colors: Lemon Yellow, Pure White, Arctic Blue, and Sunset Orange. The zoom is a limited 3.6x wide optical zoom, but that is perfectly fine for an average user's camera. If the photographer wants professional outdoor photos, they might want to go with a more delicate, higher power camera, but for your average hiking photo this camera should do just fine. The Olympus Stylus TOUGH 6000 has a TAP control menu, a feature that allows the photographer to change the settings by just tapping the sides of the camera.
