A camera you dont have to worry about breaking.

The is a great camera. It is nice having a camera I don't have to worry about getting damaged when outdoors, especially during water activities or when it might rain. I took the TG-610 to the Cayman islands and got some awesome underwater shots. The shots were significantly better than a disposable underwater camera. The camera takes pretty good pictures for a point and shoot. There are a few shortcomings however that keep this camera from getting five stars. The navigation button on the back of the camera is difficult to use at times because it is too easy to select the wrong direction accidentally. The video quality also wasn't that great. The camera seemed to have trouble focusing and would go in and out way too often. I would not rely on this camera for your video needs. There also seems to be a bit of a quality control issue. I had to exchange the first two cameras I got because they were defective right out of the box. My mother, who also bought the same camera, had to exchange her first one as well after it leaked on its second underwater shooting session. Overall this is a great camera for people who are outdoors a lot, have kids, are accident prone, or who want to be able to do some amateur underwater shooting.
