well worth the money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olympus TG-320 Digital Compact Camera - Blue (14MP, 3.6x Wide Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)
I thought about buying some disposable underwater cameras before jetting off to Italy this summer when I got side tracked and found myself looking at this camera. I figured that 2 disposables and developing would cost half of the price of this camera with 54 shots and no certainty of getting any decent shots. Whereas we took a 16GB memory card and managed to take over 1500 underwater shots between the 4 of us! It took some practice to see the screen under water when wearing goggles or a mask and once we had all got the 'feel' for the camera and it's scope we found that we had taken some fantastic shots :-)
The additional features such as the punk setting, or sparkle setting added some great effects and the panoramic function was great - although the camera is slow to blend 3 images and you have to w a i t !! (please note however that taking panoramic photos underwater in the sea or a pool is very difficult for the camera to track unless there are static objects to link too...anyway have fun figuring that out for yourselves!
We were delighted that the video function also works underwater and had goggles talking like Dory and the whale in nemo - which WAS picked up by the mic!!
Not an expensive camera however and not to be relied upon for great outdoor shots, or those using the flash. As a bit of fun though in the water it was totally fantastico!
