The Stylus Tough 8010's internal optical zoom lens has a 35mm equivalent of 28-140mm. The lens itself is made up of 11 lenses in 8 groups, all which stay hidden within the camera body. When the camera is powered down, a lens cap slides across the outside to prevent scratches to the lens.
The small built-in flash unit has modes for Auto, On, Off and Red-Eye Reduction. Next to the flash is the camera's LED lamp, which can be used as a focus assist light, or to light your super-macro images
Framing and viewing your images is accomplished with the camera's 2.7-inch, 230,000 dot HyperCrystal III LCD screen. Allowing for easier visibility outside and in other bright areas, the screen features an anti-glare coating.
Controls on the back: At the top you have the zoom control buttons. Next is the dedicated Movie Record button. Directly above the 4-way controller you can see the playback button. Pressing the 4-way controller up changes the amount of info you see on the screen while shooting or viewing your images. Pressing down allows you to delete images in Playback mode. Pressing down or either direction in REC mode will take you to the quick menu. At the bottom you have the MENU button and the camera/menu guide button.
On the right side of the camera you will find your input/output ports, hidden behind the Tough 8010's waterproof door. This door has rubber seals to keep out water up to the specified depth. Inside you will find two ports, one for USB 2.0 and the other is a mini HDMI port for viewing your images and HD Movies on a HDTV.
Also hidden behind the waterproof door is the battery and memory card slots. Although the camera features 2GB of internal memory, you will still want an SD/SDHC memory card to capture more images or transfer images from the internal memory.
