Failed Water Test

  • Summary: Although the pictures were very good and was easy to use, it leaked when I used it underwater. Not very nice when you go to Hawaii and it dies with your first dip!

  • Summary: This camera has been ...lets just say a disappointment. First time of underwater use (snorkeling) water leaked in and shorted out camera. sent in in since it had only been less than 6 mths ...they reconditioned it and sent it back. 2 yrs later was snorkling again and again seals failed. Lost alot of photos opportunities. And also want to add underwater photos not very good.
  • Pros: Has nice options setting. Point and shoot
  • Cons: don't use it underwater ......risk of not having a camera to use!splash proof thats about it. Camera is on the heavy side for being so compact.Picture quality fair!

  • Summary: Incredible underwater photos! Below average picture quality in most other settings. Handled with care, leaked after 4th trip...not worth it!
  • Pros: Great for skiing, river rafting and snorkeling
  • Cons: Leaks. Bad quality indoors and average light.

  • Summary: This is a take anywhere camera. It can take a little abuse, being dropped, or what, and still keep going. Under water is no problem with these cameras.

Oly 1030 great camera except it floods often !

  • Summary: Ever since the Olympus 770 debuted, I bought a couple. Since I live in the Carribbean, they are hard to come by, hence my owning one extra as a back-up. I also bought the PT-043 Olympus housings to scuba dive with the camera. I also own the newer (at the time) 1030 and have five of them now (mine, my back-up, 1 for each of two daughters). That's four .....

Good for watersports, not great on land.

  • Summary: I spend a lot of time on and in the water and I bought this camera to stick in my pocket and go. It is very good for that. For general purpose use though it is poor-to-mediocre in comparison to other point and shoot digitals at this price that I looked at. I usually shoot slide film/ SLR, but I figured for the price this camera would probably take acceptable pictures. The good: the macro mode works very well and is fun to use.

LEAKS!

Mark Thompson, Amazon
12 September 2009
  • Summary: This camera leaked on me three times. I kept sending it back to Olympus and they would "fix" it rather than replace it. After the third time they replaced it (but not the memory card that was ruined).I never abused the camera, never took it deep in the water. It just seems like its not very waterproof. When it works, it is a beautiful camera, takes great pictures, and is easy to use.
