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.
Pros: First U Tough 8000 lasted me less than a week before it let in water on its first trip into the sea less than 1 metre deep. There was no grit or sand in the seal, I just got the warning 'Battery cover open' then it died for good. Ruined my holiday but Olympus customer service were great and belie...
Cons: Took the camera climbing in Scotland last week, It coped with all the winter weather, being frozen (so the shutter could not close) and being bashed around, but the tap control has packed up and I can no longer take a picture by tapping the back of the camera. To most a useless feature, but when ...
Summary: bought this camera to take on bicycle trips..I thought it would be a good tough camera I never really found out because the quality of the pics where not that great I did not like the color so I went back to a canon and got a Canon PowerShot SD1200IS 10 MP ..
Summary: The day to day usability of this camera is in my opinion the most negative aspect of this camera. For vacations & travelers, it means carrying around lots of extra equipment as Olympus chose to make everything proprietary.
Summary: To be short and sweet- this camera rocks. I'm deployed overseas and knew I would be in some rough areas. This camera will take a drop onto rocks, take pics underwater and overall just continue to work through anything.
Summary: I really want to give this camera a positive review, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Over the three weeks of use this camera saw (ranging from backpacking trips to picnics) I took some really awesome shots.
Pictures Grainy, Olympus Proprietary Stuff, etc. makes this a drag...

Summary: I have owned many digital cameras since '97 when they were first emerging. Other than a Kodak DC-25 (I think), the first several cameras I owned (and loved) were Olympus. They were well designed, versatile and they took great pictures.
Summary: The Olympus 8000 flooded with my first underwater experience. Yes it was salt water. After ten minutes or so underwater (never more than 1 meter deep) and getting to know the camera, bubbles started to show in the viewer and all was over.
Summary: I purchased the Tough-8000 specifically for its underwater capability because I wanted a decent underwater camera for use when snorkeling in Bonaire. It worked great on land (pretty decent speed and quality for a P&S camera) but died after only three uses in water when I was snorkeling.
