Stunning underwater photos,
This review is from: Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 14MP Digital Camera with 5x Wide Angle Zoom and 2.7 inch LCD (Blue) (Electronics)
I think the Olympus Stylus Tough 8010 is the best of the underwater POS cameras. When writing "How To Take Stunning Underwater Photos Using Point And Shoot Cameras" (Kindle, Nook, Lulu and Apple) we tested and tried every POS underwater camera we could find and the Tough 8010 was the clear winner for price, quality, and ruggedness. I am about to buy another. This will be my forth in three years. Not bad when you consider we are in the water most every day and the cameras get tossed around without much care. (I work as a yacht captain) The cameras are all still working, but get a little tired after about a year of abuse.
The only drawback seems to be the LONG reset time between photos. Still check out the video we are posting. Pretty good stuff for a POS pocket camera.
One more thought is we have had dozens of underwater photos published taken with the Olympus Tough. That is pretty good when you consider most published photos were taken with expensive, SLR underwater cameras.
Hope that helps other choose.

Isn't it suppose to be a "P&S" or "PS" camera and not "POS" camera?
