Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Need a camera that can keep up with someone (you?) who's active, daring, and/or an occasional risk-taker? Then check out the Olympus Stylus Tough 6000. This is one incredibly durable digital camera; it's shock, water, freeze, and crush proof - ummm, ok - resistant. Don't go driving your Hummer over it, or tossing it into liquid nitrogen. It's not quite that rugged but it sure can take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. Drop it, splash it, toss it - then pick it up and take a photo or make a movie. The Tough-6000 is ready, willing, and able to capture all those future memories and help you share them with friends and family. For sportsters indulging in the wintery and aquatic types of activities - listen-up -Tap Control is about to change your life. Playback, shadow adjustments, and flash mode can all be activated by simply tapping (tapping is not smashing) the top, sides, or back of the camera. No need to pull off the gloves, or fumble for a button - just bop it!
