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: I bought this camera to replace my Olympus Stylus SW1030 which, after 3 years, recently flooded when dropped. I have not used this camera fully nor as often as my previous Olympus Stylus SW1030 which I enjoyed immensely, but the Olympus Stylus Tough-8000 12 MP Digital's features are almost...
Almost a 5 except it's heavier than I'd like it to

Summary: it's a tad heavy, but for all the features it's not that big of a problem. Love my camera and it's got amazing options for different photos. There's even a feature for taking pictures of cuisine and documents, also snow and of course underwater! Overall awesome camera
The camera is great but takes poor low-light photos

Summary: I've taken this camera snowboarding at over 12,000 feet in Breckenridge CO and snorkeling in Hawaii and I've never had an issue. The camera performs well outdoors and in places other cameras would never go.
Summary: I bought this camera for a trip to Tahiti so that I could take underwater pictures while snorkeling and scuba diving. Since you can only go 33' deep, I ended up using it only for snorkeling, but I am very happy with the quality of this camera and with the pictures.
Summary: This camera delivers as promised. All land pictures very crisp and detailed. Finally had a chance for extensive underwater shooting and was not disappointed. Best camera I have ever had. The only main drawback is the video sound. It is very subpar and staticky.
Summary: got this for my son (he is tough on things). Ive had 6 or 7 digital cameras in the 300 to 500 $ range and this is by far the best built one of them all. I was really impressed with the look and feel of this camera but unfortunatly* he left before i had a chance to review the quality of the pictures.
great- but be warned- they tend to leak eventually...

Summary: I owned a previous generation version of this camera- the 1030SW. I've used it extensively sailing and scuba diving. It takes great photos and is incredibly convenient, especially compared to a bulky underwater camera.
Summary: I bought this camera from singapore on May 2009 for my mother (for 240$ !). I took lots of pictures with this camera (owning 7 cameras) and all I can say is that the picture quality is almost awful for a 12 MP camera. But you can not expect every thing from a camera. It really works under water!
