This camera has many good features, and whilst away last Christmas snowboarding, it withstood many a wipeout and quite happily got plastered in snow and still worked. (The main problem with cameras and snow is freezing due to temperature, but the 1050sw held up fine in my experience). I do agree with other reviews that if you are shooting pictures of people and objects against snow, prepare for some very dark and often illegible shots. Scenery quality is great however, especially with the panoramic function.

However. On a recent 4 month traveling experience in Asia, my temper was tested. On the first day of my 4 month trip, whilst snorkeling (easily within limits stated by Olympus) the camera chamber flooded and instantly rendered the camera unusable. I was forced to buy (at greatly inflated cost) the same camera again, as i had bought it specifically for its underwater capabilities and other features and had all the accessories for it.

The camera broke under the same circumstances once more, just a day later. The same problem - flooded chamber and the LCD screen became fogged up shortly before the camera died completely. It wasn't for another month that I once more repurchased the same camera. It has held up much better over the last 2 months and seen my return to the UK.

I now have three of these cameras, and my final opinion will rest with Olympus' customer services relating to the two cameras i have no need for and the many great photo opportunities i missed whilst without a camera, and the financial burden it put on my trip (having forked out nearly £400 to buy two whilst away).

All in all, the camera had great potential, does have some great features, on paper outclasses any other camera within it's price-range.

I bought this as I muck about a lot near water and mud and fall off bicycles a fair bit too. Plus I do a bit of snorkelling on holiday, and wanted something for that. Will be useful for skiing too (can it survive my wipeouts...?) My old Nikon 5MP was a great camera but was finding it couldn't keep up with all the whizzy features on the newer models, so it made sense to buy something whizzy, something water and dirtproof, and something cheap. I got this for £127 on amazon, and I reckon for that its an absolute bargain.

I haven't tried the video - video on a stills camera is not my thing - but I'd have to agree that the photos I've taken so far are very good - but not excellent. Playing about with the huge amount of modes supplied makes a huge difference - I guess I'll just have to get to know what suits what occasion - but on the whole after a bit of fiddlling I've been able to get some very nice snaps.

For such a supposedly "rugged" bit of kit the front cover slides a lot - I can see this opening in pockets etc. and giving me a flat battery and a scratched lens. Then again, its a good looking camera and you don't want to throw it about. The instructions are on a CD - I found this more annoying than I thought I would, as (even though I don't usually read instructions) its nice to see what menus, modes, features are available without being tied to your laptop - say when you are out and about - as there are absolutely loads! Would be nice to have a pocket guide while learning, but once again, this probably all comes with experience and regular usage.
