Question

Olympus Stylus Tough-6020

by azmommycards / July 5, 2011 12:15 PM PDT

Does anyone have this camara? I ask because I recently inherted this camara minus the cords. I searched online and it needs a USB Download Cable (CB-USB6) to transfer the pictures to your computer and a Lithium Ion Battery Charger (LI-50C ). Both of which run $75 combined. So I have a nice camara but no way to use it once the battery dies or I want to transfer pictures without investing a pretty penny.

Can a regular USB cord be used? Does anyone no where to buy a used battery charger?

Any words of advice on this camara would be appreciated!

You do not need a USB cable to download the photos. Most modern computers have a built-in SD card slot. If yours does not, you can buy an inexpensive card reader that will plug into a USB port. You can buy a compatible battery charger from many different sources (Amazon, eBay, etc). It won't be made by Olympus, but it should work.

I've had this camera since it was new on the market. Got some great shots; above and below water. Then it happened. Was kayaking with porpoises when I turned it on, it hummed and shut off. (Great timing). Never got it to work again. I would help you out with cable/battery, but the one I replaced it with takes the same cable/battery. I purchased an OEM cable and battery on Amazon for a fraction of what Olympus wanted. Since this thread is so old, you might even have another camera by now. If it isn't Olympus, it is a perfect knockoff. The battery seems to last forever! So if anyone knows how to fix this, that would be great!
You must have the Olympus cable to charge the camera. I always took my card out and put in my PC to download pictures. You must also have it to upgrade firmware...which I suggest you NEVER do. After I did, that is when I had my problem. I know how to download properly too. Also if I might add....I never used digital zoom since the pixels were terrible. I found with this camera you can use digital zoom to it's max (ONLY with a tripod and using the 2 sec timer) you can get fantastic photos. The light must be good, but I was impressed.
Good Luck!
