They took it to Cancun and had it in and out of the water for 7 days straight. The camera freezes if it goes past 10 feet, they learned, but if you follow the cleaning instructions, it'll come out unscathed. Which to me, is amazing and totally worth the money!
It has several features they've found awesome and helpful, the slideshow when looking for a specific picture, the option to take several pictures at once and have it merged together as one was another.
The reason for only 4 stars is the battery life. The camera dies after about 150 pictures, and that is honestly a downer. Especially if you want to take it anywhere that you'll be snapping several pictures...usually vacations.
However the quality of the photos, the amazing durability of the camera, and the fun color options, can outweigh the one negative. Just charge it often, or buy a second battery to keep as a backup.
I am going to buy one for myself, I'm that sold on it!
The first 5 days of the cruise (including 2 snorkeling expeditions where I didn't get near to 10 feet underwater), it worked great. Good color rendition, and the panoramic feature was so much more simple than other point-and-shoot digital cameras that I have had. The pictures were nice, and it worked great under water. Sadly, towards the end of the 5th day, the view screen stopped working. It would come on for a couple of seconds and then go blank. I recharged the battery a couple of times, and even tried our spare battery, but that didn't help.
The camera didn't leak in the battery compartment, so if it was caused by water leaking in, it came from some other part of the camera.
Fortunately, we had our Kodak digital camera with us on the trip, so we were still able to take lots of pictures of the Bahamas and Key West.
Sadly, the Olympus went back to the store for a refund. If it couldn't hold up on a fairly tame cruise, I just couldn't justify getting a new one for potential future vacations like white water rafting that I would want a waterproof, shock-friendly camera for.
I have a good Canon DSLR for serious photography. We bought this camera to take snapshots on the cruise, and for future vacations. The camera has nice features, and worked great while it worked. Sadly, since it didn't last 5 full days, I really wouldn't recommend buying one.
I bought this camera for a trip to the Caribbean. It was in the water several times, up to 4 feet deep. It worked flawlessly and stayed bone dry. Be sure to rinse it in clean tap water, wait for it to dry completely before opening.
The shell is aluminum which makes it heavy duty. The exposures and colors are fairly accurate even indoors with flash. Sharpness is adequate for this type of camera. I'm particularly impressed with the quality of the pictures in the macro mode. There are 2 things that I don't like:
1. In the battery saving mode, the screen turns off after only about 2 seconds, making it a little annoying. To turn it back on, you press lightly on the shutter release. You can turn off this mode but cannot extend the time.
2. It does not come with an external battery charger. The battery has to be charged while inside the camera. I solved this problem by buying an external charger from eBay. You may also consider getting a second battery for convenience.
The controls are small so if you have big fingers or wear gloves, you may have difficulty. But again, this is a compact camera that fits in your shirt pocket.
The manufacturer says that you need to replace the waterproof seal once a year but that's true for all waterproof cameras. I find that the seal will last a longer if you leave the battery door open during storage. That way there's not constant pressure on the seal.
I purchased this camera at the same time as the Panasonic Lumix TS3.Read more ›
