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.
Excerpt: I looooove this camera!! I bought it for Christmas for myself!!! I have used in everywhere you can possible think of!! I have taken it on vacations with me to the ocean and to camping trips all over the states. My kids have taken it in the water and so have i. I can't tell you how many times I have dropped it and it still turned on!!! It takes great underwater photos and still photos.
Excerpt: This so far is the great camera. Got it for Christmas and have used it 15 different times. It takes good quality photos and has alot of menu features for editing, etc. This camera is meant for someone who is out in the weather alot. it is supposed to take underwater photos and then be able to go into freezing temperatures. meant for all conditions. It does not come with any accessories but those can be found pretty cheap. It came with a small memory camera card.
Excerpt: I love this camera, it had lasted a brutal challenge of skiing in Colorado. In Colorado, it was fallen on, set in the snow and dropped numerous times without any problems. I love it and it was the best investment I could have made!
Excerpt: My husbands in the military and is often in rugged conditions. I've sent many cameras with him on deployment and they always end up having some type of damage before he's halfway through. Sand, water, falls, being thrown against the wall - typical military conditions. Then I found this camera.

Excerpt: I bought this camera for an adventure trip hiking the Inca trail in Peru...At the time, I really didn't know how to use it, so most of my initial photographs were on "auto" setting. Despite the advantage of the spectacular surroundings, I was stunned to see super sharp, beautifully colored photographs..
I wouldn't use any other camera, only the Olympus-Tough-8000.

Excerpt: I have used many other cameras and not a one of them has stood up to the tough situations I have put them in. The Olympus Tough-8000 has stood up against my dropping it, getting it wet, using it constantly, etc. I love to use my camera, especially taking pictures of my kids in or outside. It goes everywhere with me and takes the awesomest pictures. They are always clear and precise. I haven't found another camera that I would rather use.
Excerpt: I want to start out by saying I started with the olympus 770 SW which is also a great camera.... I have had my Olympus tough 8000 now for several weeks and taken a million pictures with it so far it seems...the quality of picture is nice, the only downfall is I which they would make the zoom a little more powerful on these models. especially for underwater pictures. I also bought the underwater housing unit with this but I will do a seperate review for that.
Excerpt: Last month I got this camera from a friend and was confused on the brand Olympus. Not ever heard of this brand or used it I wasn't sure what to expect. But of course it took to my surprise its a lot better than the Samsung Camera I had owned. This Olympus Touch 8000 Digital Camera is like my best friend! The photo quality are amazing for indoor or outdoors, even under water! It is simple to use and even fun!
