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. Once I got the white-balance figured out, I was able to take good shots and video, in quickly changing conditions.The software and hardware image stabilization helps my friends take good photos too. It has a good microphone for recording sound for video but a really weak playback.
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.
Summary: Olympus Stylus Tough-8000 12 MP Digital Camera with 3.6x Wide Angle Optical Dual Image Stabilized Zoom and 2.7-Inch LCD (Black) This camera is more sophisticated than the description led me to believe. I'm very impressed with the built-in panoramic feature and optical zoom. I bought it for the toughened case and compact size and got more than I bargained for.
Summary: Purchased this camera as a present for my sister for christmas, and I tested it to make sure it worked since would be a month before she got it. Over all it's awesome!!! I am excited about the practically child proof adaptations. It is bump/drop proof and considerably water proof. With toddlers who love to take the camera with out asking, that is an awesome thing to have. Point and shoot is nice a clear... have to figure out red eye trick, but that is probably me.
Summary: I previously purchased a Stylus Olympus 1030 SW 10 Megapixel Camera 4 years ago and the camera still works as if I just purchased it. Because of its small size, it is easy to carry in almost any pocket. The frame is made out of steel/aluminum, no plastic pieces so it is very durable. I have used the camera in the Jungles of South America, in the deserts of Arizona, Texas, Utah, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Summary: This camera is easy to use and is one of the best I have ever used. I am still finding new things I can do with it and it is so much fun to try different ways to take a picture. I think anyone can use this and be very happy. A super all around everyday camera for you to use taking any kind of picture from the beach to a wedding to a night time outdoor party. This does it all.
