Summary: it is good camera at the moment while waiting the new series of stylus tg-3
Pros: i feel excited with this compact camera especially for Underwater ,although i bought the second hand plus housing.good picture.whenever i go diving i have to use the housing in case something wrong.
Cons: when taking macro photo sometime half of the picture litte bit dark.but no problem i use underwater torch or i have to zoom a bit.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter when she was in Afghanistan. She wanted something heavy duty. It did not hold up as promised. This was not cheap and did not hold up even for a year. The lens fogged over (it never got wet) She ended up throwing it away. It was not functional. Very disappointed.
Summary: It was great while it lasted. I made good use of it for about a little over a year. During that time, it took great pictures and was easy to use. Then pretty much right after the warranty expired, it leaked and broke.
Summary: purchased this camera about 5 years ago and still taking great pics. love that you are able to drop it, get it wet, basically it will take anything that you throw at it. able to use auto mode for picture taking or adjust and use manual mode. love the panorma setting.
Summary: Basically, Olympus has tried to cram too much into the Stylus Tough line. too many options, too many buttons for a sports camera, too many doors with leaky seals for underwater use. Controls are tiny and difficult if not impossible to use with gloves or cold hands.
Pros: small easy to carry, other than that is fairly useless, DO NOT USE UNDERWATER!!
Cons: Camera leaked first time under water, for a sports camera there are too many adjustments and controls, 657 last count. make quick shooting virtually impossible, especially under water. Use your money wisely grasshopper! buy another tougher camera there are many out there
Summary: Have had this for about 2yrs now and it gets so much use. I always encourage everyone to buy this camera. Takes amazing underwater pictures and have dropped it many times without any problems.
