It’s been 12 months since I put the Olympus µ[mju:] 1030SW through some vigorous tests. Not exactly test. More like rough usage as I am not the type that’s particularly gentle with his equipment so this is perhaps the right camera for me to abuse. It is after all supposed to be a tough camera. Right?
Olympus has recently introduced the successor µ Tough series. The µ Tough 8000 spec sheet does not look too different from it’s predecessor so I am not really impressed enough to part with my cash and dump the old unit just yet. Deep down I want to because honestly, I have gotten a little tired with the average image quality produced by the 1030SW.
