  • Summary: The quality sucked and the seal went during a trip in the Caribbeans. Didn't even get to use it in the water.

Leaks

TRLK, Amazon
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I was extremely careful with this camera and never had it in more than a foot of water and it still leaked when it was only a couple days old. Very disappointing.

Do NOT take this "Waterproof" camera underwater.

C. Healy, Amazon
18 January 2010
  • Summary: Okay, I've been burned. Bought this camera in Nov 2008 and took it snorkeling in early January 2010. Never went more than 4 feet underwater, and now the camera is hosed. OF course, it's out of warranty by one month. It's like they time these things.

Over it.

Rebecca A. Scott "Rebecca Scott", Amazon

  • Summary: I have sent my camera in TWICE for repair (which they said I didn't close the battery compartment and water got in) but I think that there is a problem somewhere else cause the first time they "replaced the battery lock" and the same thing happened again.

This camera is NOT WATERPROOF!

G. Baker, Amazon
11 October 2009
  • Summary: I bought the Olympus 1030SW hoping to finally have found the camera that I could take, and use, without worrying about it, anywhere I go. I thought I would love the camera; the onboard panoramic photo-combining feature is something I'll definitely get in my next purchase; the automated "scene"...

Broke after 8 months

ARD, Amazon
16 May 2009
  • Summary: I really liked the camera. It took great pictures both on land and under water. I followed all the proper maintenance (limiting use under water and soaking it in water after use), but the LCD display died after 8 months

Not always waterproof!

Maybe, Amazon
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera at a friend's recommendation in advance of a cruise vacation. I looked forward to using the waterproof feature. I carefully read the directions and followed them -- but when I used the camera underwater (not more than a foot underwater), the camera stopped working.

Mine failed in the water also

Scott Cook "Veteran NZ traveler", Amazon
8 May 2009
  • Summary: Same as most everyone else, after a week, my camera just stopped functioning, and looking inside I found water, corroded battery points, etc. I did recover the pictures and plenty had water spots (condensation) blocking the images--I'm bummed.

Can't get your pictures back

John Judge, Amazon
7 April 2009
  • Summary: After a few light uses I was surprised to get a CARD ERROR on an OLYMPUS card (which you have to use or some of the functions are not supported!) Called tech support and they said to purchase third party software!! Would not send NEW card. So lost 1/3 of our Hawaiian pictures.

Poor quality, not waterproof

R. Ward, Amazon
4 February 2009
  • Summary: Do not buy this camera if you are planning to use it underwater. I used it for two days while snorkeling and the camera shut down and I was not able to use it for the rest of our vacation. The frame around the shutter fell off and all the black paint on the front of the camera came off.
