Good Camera.

  • Summary: Works well and takes good pictures. I did manage to break the screen so it is not quite as rugged as promised. But Olympus changed it at a reasonable price.

Handy camera to have around

  • Summary: I am always surprised people have such strong feelings for a camera. I mean, it's a camera. Some pics turn out great, like the ones from diving in Belize, beautiful, just couldn't take it *too* deep. Then there's that picture (on our living room wall!

  • Summary: I've had my Olympus U725SW for between 5 & 6 years now and used it in all kinds of situations. I've used it roaring down the rapids while river rafting on Java Island, Indonesia, snorkling and swimming on a number of islands in Indonesia, roaring on a river boat in Borneo, canoeing down rivers in...
  • Pros: It's taken the toughest treatment I would expect from anything, in fact more, and it has just kept going, so rugged must be up there amongst its strongest features. waterproof it surely is., The body is strong and rugged and can take a beating.
  • Cons: Zoom is only 3.0X Optical., On/Off button is not easily accessible under difficult circumstances., The function selection is difficult under "action" circumstances.

shockproof camera for young child

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 May 2008
  • Summary: We bought this camera for our (precocious) grandson's 4th birthday over a "toy" camera. It was a bit of an extravagance, but not that much more than we would have spent anyhow. The key appeal is its purported "shockproof" feature. We added a gel case for extra protection.

Good as long as its limitations are understood.

  • Summary: This is not my family's primary camera, this is the camera we use in the pool or during harsh conditions/activities. The underwater pictures are cool, though not the best. The outdoor pictures are good in bright light. Where this camera may disappoint is in lower-light settings, including indoors.

Good for this type of camera

  • Summary: The only meaningful comparison is between LCD-only, pocket cameras with non-extending lenses. I've owned a lot of digital (& film) cameras, including a digital SLR. PROS: rugged, well-made, waterproof (I've actually taken it underwater; of course underwater shots are not sharp unless you get an...

Great Camera for travel

  • Summary: We have a Nikon Digital SLR camera, but still use the Olympus for all sorts of activities from biking and hiking to family gatherings. For what it is, takes great photos. Limited flash and zoom.

  • Summary: I bought this camera after I accidently threw our canon powershot in the pool and needed to replace it. (it was inside a bag of snorkeling gear we had just taken to the beach and I didn't realize it until it was already in the water).
  • Pros: Definitely durable. I have owned it almost a year and it has been through a lot plus dropped 2x. There are only minor scratches on it., I am happy with the pictures it takes. They are great for my purposes. I usually keep the image quality set to SQ1 (2560 X 1920) which has produced good quality ...
  • Cons: I like to use the digital zoom on it, but for some reason it shuts itself off each time I shut the camera off. It is a pain to have to go back into the menu and turn it back on every time I want to use it. I would give this camera a 5 star rating if it weren't for the digital zoom issue I have wi...
