Not so "tough"

Deborah L Smith, Amazon

  • 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.

It was great while it lasted

  • 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

Great little tough camera

Drae, Amazon

  • Summary: On our first trip to Hawaii, we wanted a camera to take underwater photos when we snorkeled (my first time snorkeling). It was easy & fun to use. And it works great for "regular" use, too.

  • Summary: I needed a nearly indestructible digital camera, and finally found one. And It still works. I previously shot only with film, using disposable waterproof cameras for our extreme sports.

  • Summary: Like the first one I bought so I had to get the new one. This camera seems even tougher than my old one. Definitily worth the money. I would recommend this camera to anyone.

  • 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.
