Editor's Review

The TOUGH 6020 is basically a less-hardy version of the TOUGH 8010 (like the TOUGH 6000 was to the TOUGH 8000). The imaging equipment looks the same on paper -- 14 megapixels, 5x zoom, 720p HD video -- but it's only about half as tough as its older brother (and $100 cheaper). That's fine, because most of you don't actually need a super-rugged camera. The image quality is never as good as similarly priced un-tough cameras, so unless you truly need a camera that you can bash around, go for one of those. If you really do need one, this should be OK, but just remember that an extra $100 gets you one of the toughest cameras made by man.

Poor pictures? What mode takes decent pics? (Annie — 11/12/2010)
Hi- I bought this camera and have not been able to take good pictures with it. They all come out grainy and with poor color. Most of the P mode settings are the factory default except for the MP and digitial zoom is now turned on. I find that the only decent pictures I can take are outside where the lighting is good. Anything inside comes out pretty poor. Do you use the P mode or iAuto mode? I also noticed that if I set the camera to use IAuto mode, that setting does not stick for the next use (very annoying) Thanks!

Water leaked into camera (Juan — 08/24/2010)
Bought this camera (Best Buy $269) and took it on vacation to the Dominican Republic. Used it in the river in Jarabacoa, the beach in Boca Chica and Juan Dolio and the pool in all three above mentioned places. The camera worked as advertised. However, I noticed the first time I used it (was in the pool) some condensation around the battery. I panicked a little and doubly checked all the seals. I fully dried the camera and copy my pics from the very large camera flash drive to my computer every day. The last 2 days of my trip it got heavy use in the pool (forgot to backup pictures). Battery died and I plugged it in for recharge. When I went to use it, the camera was completely dead. Only the power light (charge light) would come on. It has not worked since. My computer - or any other computer - does not recognized it. I lost all the pictures for those two days and cannot get back. Luckily for me I bought the $44 best buy protection plan and will give a new one a try because I really love this camera for what it is suppose to do. Buy an SD card and save the pictures you take to it. I hope mine was a lemon and I will get the real thing next time. - note: this camera is slow when taking a second picture right after the first one. It might be a little complicated at first but intuitive once you learn the menus. The camera has a built in manual if you need help.
