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.
  • 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.

LEAKS!

  • 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.

Keeps leaking, sending back for the 3rd time

  • Summary: Decent little camera, if it only worked as advertised. I really liked the idea of having a smaller outdoor based camera that could take a little pounding and still function. Especially was high on it being waterproof and being able to take pictures in the pool.
