    5.0 out of 5 stars Underwater Adventure! 19 Sep 2011
    By PaulS
    Colour Name:Red
    I bought the little Olympus as I wanted an easy to use point and shoot that I did'nt have to worry about getting wet, or sandy. The additional ability to take pictures when snorkling sold me.

    As previously mentioned, the buttons are a little on the small side and the autofocus can be a little slow, but no real issues.

    The waterproofing works!! I dropped the camera whilst sailing in to approx. 10 metres of sea water - it also took two hard bounces before disappearing over the side. 18 hours later, I managed to get someone to dive down and retrieve it. Amazingly enough, it still works perfectly!!

    3.0 out of 5 stars It's good but could be better... 26 Mar 2011
    Colour Name:White
    I've had this camera now for a few days and have taken a dozen or so pictures so this is just an initial views and thoughts.

    I have dunked it into some water so it seems good so far in terms of its waterproof-ness, I'll be giving it a proper test in a couple of weeks. I wanted somehting that could take some punishment and not take up too much room which it does. It also has a tripod mount and takes 720p movies with sound which were another 2 features I wanted.

    It has a good number of features, the magic filters look decent and I'll probably use them. The 3D picture is to me a gimmick, I don't have a 3D TV and nor is the screen on this camera 3D so useless - a feature I didn't want to pay for but no alternatives sadly.

    Notable disappointments so far are its indoor picture quality; the flash over-exposures and objects look white-washed. Also the zoom was disappointing, the model up (TG 610) has larger range of zoom as I believe- plus that model can be taken down to 5m water depth, but I was limited on money. However I bought this camera for it's rugged features and the fact it can be taken into water and dropped, I was aware I would have to sacifice some features such as the zoom, but disappointed nonetheless.

    The buttons are a tad small but nothing to worry about. The navigation is quite intuitive once you get use to it, after all the less external buttons there are, the more waterproof it'll be. So it uses a scrolling action with the left and right buttons to get to the main features it has. The panoramic setting I like as it takes the photos automatically once you overlap it with the previous photo.

    Overall it feels solid, takes good outdoor pictures and looks good too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars waterproof!!! 12 Sep 2011
    By ecats
    Colour Name:Red
    Very good camera and it is waterproof 100%. Just be careful to lock the cover properly (move the little switch to the indication lock) so that it wont open by accident. Once happened to me and some drops of water got in and as soon as i realized it (a couple of hours later) the camera didn't power on. I removed the battery and dried the camera with a hairdryer and then all came back to normal. I'm using it for 3 months now, in and out of the water and takes very good shots, has a lot of settings and can take shots in motion, with low light, pets etc.
    Very good deal.

    By Digory

    Bought this camera for my partner to take on holidays, our last one got wet and died on the last holiday. Bought it for the waterproof feature, didnt expect it to be as good a camera. More advanced than we are, excellent panoramic funtion, great software. Still not tried to get it wet!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Olympus Underwater Camera 14 Oct 2011
    By SteveW
    Colour Name:Red
    I had the earlier version of this (the one in the TV advert that the toddler kicked around the garden)and that was pretty good - great for snorkelling (video too!) and OK as a normal camera. Eventually it got too battered, so we got this one. Similar in layout for controls but because they're all rubber buttons now, I think they're alot more fiddly to use, and seem to be less responsive. This means you end up using your finger nails on the buttons so they may not last.
    Also, on powersave the time to come on again is just too long, so you wonder if you've pressed it, and then just as you press it again it comes on and then goes off...
    So nothing major wrong with it, and used it underwater in Corfu recently OK, but it takes a bit of getting used to.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Not so tough -- lens failed :-( 8 May 2013
    By Mrs Mac
    Colour Name:Red
    We bought this camera, from another retailer Christmas 2011, for our boys on the premise it would survive any potential beating they may give it. And being TOUGH, would more than cope. However, they have looked after it remarkably well: didn't drop it, or let it feel even a drop of water. We've been impressed how well they have looked after it.

    Sadly, it was the camera itself that let them down. Just beyond a year of light use the camera has ceased to function. Press the power button and the camera runs through an initial diagnostic routine (I assume, as it's an attempted whirring sound on the lens) and subsequently beeps for 5 secs then switches off. Needless to say, our boys are somewhat disappointed they can't use it for their creative adventures.

    Perhaps the lens mechanism has suffered some kind of damage, but the construction of this camera makes it impossible for the kids, or any user, to physically touch the it. So handling is not likely the cause for the failure. Particularly, since the camera was supposed to be 'Tough'!

    Usage wise, our kids took approximately 1,000 photographs over the year - works out around 10p per photograph.
