Pros: Extremely Shock-Proof. Great picture quality. Lightweight & compact. Capable of being your one-camera-quiver. Water-proofing works great. Super bright LED-flashlight! Performs well in freezing air and water.
Cons: Cannot zoom or refocus during video capture. Background noise is distracting during video capture. Symbols on dial all rubbed off. Longest shutter speed is 1/2 sec. XD card storage is non-typical.
Summary: Not only is this a great camera for outdoor and underwater enthusiasts, with the features that this camera is loaded with, this is just a plain all around great camera! The auto-stitching Panorama feature is amazing! Highly recommended for anyone looking for a good, durable camera, that you don't have to worry about getting dirty.
Summary: I have onwed a few cameras and by far the 1030sw is the best. I took it to Maui recently and took some great pic;s under water and on land. I have looked for a new one and was unable to find any.I aloso want to say that you can buy a card converter to use sd cards instead of dx, on ebay.
Olympus Stylus 1030SW - Best Cameral I have ever owned!
28 November 2010
Summary: To make this short and sweet, this is by far, the best point and shoot, digital camera, that I have ever owned. Very expensive when new, you can get them for a song today (used.) I was going to invest in one of the Casio rugged digital cameras, and while looking through reviews, I stumbled upon this model. It had excellent reviews, across the board, and I decided it was for me.
Summary: I love this camera. I have a 5 yr old that well loves using it to take photos. He says that he is a reporter. The fact that it can take a fall or get into water says it all. The features are easy to use and it has a huge amount of features that make taking photos easy, fun, and exciting. I only wish that this camera had a better zoom. Many say that the photo quality is not great however I have had no complains so far.
Summary: The Olympus Stylus 1030sw digital camera is perfect for all the adventure lovers. It's constructed in a way that it withstands almost any weather condition. It's freeze-proof, crush-proof, water-proof, and it withstands a 6-foot fall. I've used it underwater to dive and it takes awesome underwater pictures and videos. It has lots of special features that help you change the settings with the touch of a button.
Summary: I hate anything that doesn't work especially when I pay a lot for it. I am writing this as a service to anyone who needs a rugged camera. Buy the olympus, it works as advertized. It takes pictures in salt water, fresh water and in freezing conditions. I've backpacked it from coast to coast and it has never failed to work just fine.
Summary: Being Tough: It's pretty good. I have dropped it so often that I have lost count. I'm short 5'5'' and it's rated at 6 feet drop I believe. The casing in front of the camera, the green piece of metal is dented and litter with scratches that you can't really see, except for one where the paint is off. I have a screen protector because I'm paranoid about that part of the camera (it ain't scratch proof). I dropped it in a wishing fountain and it's fine.
