Olympus adds to rugged camera range with the Tough 3000

Olympus has just announced a refresh of its Mju Tough camera range with the Tough 3000, at CES in Las Vegas.

Like its predecessors it's waterproof to 3 metres, shockproof to a drop of 1.5 metres and can withstand temperatures as low as -10 degrees Celcius.

It's is also similar to previous cameras in the range as it gets a 3.6x optical zoom, 12-megapixel sensor and 2.7-inch LCD to view your pics on, although in terms of aesthetics there are differences - with a more rounded appearance.

The main updates appear to be the HD movie function and [ib] software - allowing images to be organised by person using face recognition, by place with the GPS-based mapping function or by event. You'll also get 1GB of internal memory, SD card slot and USB charging.

Available from March 2010 you'll be able to snap it up for £199.99.
