Summary: This camera can do everything I need it to do. It has many, many different settings. It has been dropped my kids countless times and still working. Definitely the best camera I have ever bought!!!!
Summary: Awesome camera. Some idiot here states that the advert is misleading as it doesn't get scuffed. Dude, it isn't made of diamond. The camera is very durable and rugged- survived many drunken nights out and the accompanying falls and beer-dunks.
Being Waterproof Doesn't Compensate For It's Failings

Summary: This is the "Olympus mju 850 SW" compact digital camera. It offers the user eight megapixels, a focal length of between 38-114mm, a face detection mode, and good macro capabilities. The camera uses XD memory cards, and an Li-ion battery. It also offers an ISO range spanning from 64 to 1600.
Summary: I've been spoilt with camera quality in the past with Sony products but once this got stolen, I needed a camera I could pop in a pocket when I didn't want to take my slr. The 850 is perfect for that.
Summary: Really good camera! I have been so pleased with it! I bought before going travelling, it lasted 3 months, being used daily, in water, its been dropped, and still living today! so pleased with it stil!
Summary: Bought this camera to share with my 5 year old and 3 year old. It is ideal as I don't have to worry about a bit of rough handling. Also ideal for coping with the British weather. We had great fun with it at Legoland on the water rides in the pouring rain.
Summary: We bought this camera for our holiday - an activity holiday including lots of water activities. It was great, very easy to use ; the case makes it easy to attach to yourself. The software supplied with the camera is also easy to use which is a bonus.
Summary: Compact and very easy to use camera. Good photo quality though beware that I have found that it does occassionary produce an errors (corrupted image, so it is worth backing up from time to time. Pretty reliable camera and works well underwater do some snorkelling with it.
Summary: Which is a shame, because I dropped it in the sea :o( Otherwise it's a brilliant camera that can be taken anywhere. It produces crisp clear photos and has survived me dropping it (often) kicking it and skiing over it, with regular salt water soakings thrown in.
