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: This camera is great! I read a bunch of reviews talking about how the camera broke after one use but mine works just as promised. Went to the keys and took great underwater pictures of coral and fish. Followed cleaning/rinsing instructions to clear all salt from the camera. Some people complained that the camera stopped working after a few months of use.
Summary: This camera is a replacement for one we lost while camping. Love the camera ability to shoot pictures underwater as well as shoot video while skiing down the mountain. This is a small camera that fits in your pocket and not fragile. You do not have to worry about bumping and ruining the camera. All the functions worked as advertised and I am as happy with this replacement as I was with the new original camera we lost.
