What's the return policy? This camera is on sale and I want to buy it now, but my vacation isn't for 2 months. A lot of the reviews say it is NOT waterproof and I'm nervous to buy it now, use it in two months, have it fail, and then not be able to return it.
They did replace mine more than 2 months out, but we haven't taken it in. Saltwater again. It worked ok in pools, just not the ocean. They initially told us they wouldn't replace it, but they did - so it's questionable what the real policy is. We were glad to have an exception.
My camera is completely waterproof. I have 3 small children and that is the best test for shock and under water. Over a year now and it is as sturdy as can be. Don't expect very high quality pics but for normal use is very good. And fun...
You will have to check with the vendor on return policy. But olypmus should have a one year warranty. I am on my second one. I LOVE THEM. You have heard correctly they can become unwaterproof. You just have to be careful when you open the battery hatch and make sure no sand or water gets in it.I would buy again and have loved my old one and the up graded version
