processor, which was developed for the professional Digital SLR, to deliver
superior images with true-to-life color, sharper detail, and less noise.
Optics: The Stylus Tough-6020 is equipped with a 5.0-25.0mm
zoom lens (equivalent to 28-140mm in 35mm photography).
5x Optical/5x Digital Zoom: The camera has a 5x optical zoom to deliver sharper, clearer images and bring you closer to the
action without taking a step. In addition to the 5x optical zoom, the
camera has a 5x digital zoom. This gives you a seamless total zoom of 25x.
LCD Monitor: The camera is equipped with a
2.7" HyperCrystal III color LCD monitor with approximately 230,000 pixels. The monitor
features a 2-step brightness adjustment, anti-glare technology, and an
extra-wide viewing angle. The

Shooting Modes: The
Stylus Tough-6020 camera offers 29 shooting modes, including 19 scene presets,
for optimizing the shutter speed and
exposure for specific conditions and subjects. You can choose from the following
shooting modes: Intelligent Auto, Program Auto, Sensor-shift Image
Stabilization, Panorama, Beauty Mode, Magic Filter (Pop Art, Pinhole, Fisheye,
Drawing), HD Movie, and these scene modes: Portrait, Landscape, Night Scene, Night +
Indoor, Candle, Self-Portrait, Sunset,
Fireworks, Cuisine, Documents, Beach & Snow, Underwater Snapshot,
Underwater Wide1, Underwater Wide2, Underwater Macro, Pet, and Snow.
Continuous Shooting: The camera can take one frame at a
time, or a sequence of pictures at a time by holding down the shutter button.
Normal speed sequential shooting locks the focus and exposure on the first
frame, and the shooting speed depends upon the image quality setting. High speed
sequential shooting takes pictures at a faster speed than normal speed
sequential shooting. Shooting speed is approximately 0.3 frame per second for
normal and 1.2 frames per second at high speed.
Focus Lock: If it becomes difficult to
focus on the subject due to low contrast to the surroundings, close up and far
away subjects in the same shot, or quickly moving subjects, you can lock the
focus on an object at a similar distance, then shoot the picture after
recomposing the shot.
The higher the ISO value, the greater the camera's light sensitivity and better
its ability to shoot in low light. The Stylus Tough-6020 can automatically set the
camera's sensitivity according to the conditions around the subject. To minimize
blur caused by a moving subject or camera movement, the camera can automatically
use a higher sensitivity (compared to Auto). Manual settings include ISO 64,
100, 200, 400, 800, or 1600 equivalents.
AF Mode: There are three AF (auto focus)
the camera determines the subject, even when not in the center. If a face is
detected, the camera focuses on the face when the shutter button is pressed
- Spot AF: focus detection based on the subject within
the AF target mark
- AF Tracking: The camera tracks the subject's movement
automatically to focus on it continuously.
Panorama: Using the included software it is possible to
connect images with overlapping edges together into a single panoramic image.
You can select "Auto" or "Manual" Panorama, which allows you to put up to 3
images together, or "PC" for up to 10 images to be linked together on your
computer using the supplied software.
Exposure Compensation: In some
situations, you may get better results by adjusting the exposure slightly using
compensation. You can adjust from -2.0 to + 2.0 EV in
1/3 stop increments.
Still Image Audio Recording: When activated, the camera's built-in microphone can be set
to record four seconds of audio after the shutter button is released and the
picture is taken. In the playback menu, you can add up to 4 seconds of audio to
and Editing Images
Image Playback: Once still images or movies have been
captured, the camera gives you several options for playing them back:
- Manual Playback: view images manually one-by-one
- Slide Show: play still
images back as a slide show. You can select to include all, or images from a
single event, or in a specific collection created with PC software. You can
choose from five types of background music and three types of transitions.
- Photo Surfing: images are searched and related images are
selected for playback as a group
- Index View: For
viewing multiple images at once, you can create an index display of 12 or 30

Editing Still Images: You can
edit images in the camera and store them as new images before transferring them
to a computer. Types of edits you can make include:
- Size: You can resize a picture to 640 x 480 or 320 x 240 and save it as
a new image file. You can also crop a picture and save it as a new image file.
- Color Edit: Color Edit feature changes the color of the
picture and saves it as a new file: black & white, sepia, high saturation,
- Frame: Frame edit feature lets you integrate a frame
within an image
- Label: Label edit feature lets you select a preset

Editing Pictures: If a picture you have taken turns out
less-than-perfect, you can edit it using one of the following:
- Beauty Fix: The camera can make corrections to the
subject's skin and/or eyes. You can select Clear Skin (soft, average, or
hard), Sparkle Eye, or Dramatic Eye.
- Image Size: You can save a high-resolution image as a separate
image with a smaller size to use in e-mail attachments or other
applications. You can choose 640 x 480 or 320 x 240.

Erasing/Protecting Images: Unwanted
images can be erased one at a time or all at once. You can protect important
images to avoid accidentally erasing them. Once an image is protected, it cannot
be erased during a single-frame erase or all-frame erase function. Protected
images are erased when the memory is reformatted.
PictBridge Printing Capability:
Using the supplied USB cable, you can connect this camera directly to a
PictBridge-compliant printer. PictBridge is a standard that allows you to
connect a PictBridge compliant camera directly to a PictBridge compliant printer
and make prints, regardless of brand.
Exif Print (Exif 2.2): The
Olympus Stylus Tough-6020 conforms to Exif Print, a worldwide
standard. Vital camera settings (such as exposure mode, white balance, exposure
time) and scene data are recorded to the image file when it's captured.
Printers compatible with Exif Print are able to use this information
to produce high quality photographs, exactly the way they were intended at the
time of capture. This intelligent communication process also allows the printer
to correct for poor lighting or mistakes, resulting in prints that can be even
better than the originals.
Print Reservation: Applying Print Reservation to your pictures allows you
to take the SD/SDHC Card to a DPOF-compatible photo lab for
printing, or print them on a DPOF-compatible printer at home, without using
a computer. DPOF is the Digital Print Order Format and allows you to add
information to your picture files such as which pictures to print, the
number of prints desired, add the date
and time to each image, etc.
