Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Sturdy little camera, have already dropped it and capsized in a canoe with it and still looks and works as new. Bought them for use in school with students,the students of course will probably be much more careful with them than me.
Bad points:
None at the moment, a great little camera for the low price.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have found the Tough 6010 is an ideal tool for a wildlife surveyor needing to add photography to reports. I dunk it in water, scrape through bushes, knock it against Church bell towers, climb ladders, drop it down holes.... and it still works! The automatic focus on the 6010 is ideal for close ups followed by shots of moving animals at a distance.

I have not used all the facilities on the camera... these aren't needed for my job, other surveyors have remarked on the quality of pictures I produce and the small handy size of the camera. I have to now so I am never without a robust little workhorse.
Bad points:
The length of time between taking shots... this can be so slow you cannot take a picture of fast cars or animals easily!!

The camera is light, compact and easy to use. Images are really clear and the different modes provide some great options.

Only slight disappoinmets are the zoom feature - could be greater and the battery life - could be slightly longer. Overall very good camera at the price.

Good points:
After my first Mju Tough 6010 was stolen I was only interested in replacing it with the same model as this is a fantastic camera. I love to take photographs everywere I go but don't want to be too precious about dropping my camera or getting it wet - this camera can withstand being dropped and is functional underwater. Perfect for muddy festivals, skiiing, beach holidays etc.
