NOT WATERPROOF!!!

Ryan, Amazon

  • Summary: This was my second Olympus in the tough series since my first one was lost during a dive trip. I was happy with the first one even though the shutter speed was terrible and picture quality was fair at best but it was waterproof. This one was not! Did not even survive the first time it went less than 6 inches in the water.

Very Disappointed

  • Summary: Wow, Where should I start? This camera is just awful. I cannot for the life of me get a decent picture... Blurry pix with auto focus, 99% of the time there is "lens flair" or cloudy pix on a sunny day, very, very slow(you hit the shutter button,your subjects are walking away,then the camera decides to take the pic). My cell phone takes better pix. I can't even give this camera away.

  • Summary: As a semi professional photographer, I am extremely disappointed with the Stylus 1050 SW. For a camera that is supposed to be used in active conditions it is painfully slow to auto focus and has major shutter lag. I bought it because some days I don't feel like lugging my DSLR and a bunch of lenses mountain biking and snowboarding.
  • Pros: - Waterproof and shock resistant
  • Cons: - Painfully slow, - Sliding face plate, - Too many preparatory items, - Only record video for only a few seconds and cannot use the in camera panoramic feature with microSD adapter, - Loose megapixels while shooting in 3:2 ratio

  • Summary: Not even close to what its cracked up to be. Was dissapointed that after 29 days my camera picked up this ugly black spot that showed up on all images and video. Was an internal problem that needed to be fixed at the factory. I sent it in and was told that I would need to pay for the repair even though the camera was less than a month old. Very unhappy. Will not purchase Olympus products in the future.
  • Pros: Small compact size. On/Off slider is nice feature.
  • Cons: Not as durable as they claim

Pura decepção!

  • Summary: Esse produto é pura decepção!
  • Cons: Estou extremamente decepcionada com o produto, além do zoom ser muito ruim, as fotos noturnas mesmo em ambiente fechados só ficam boas se forem tiradas bem de perto. E o pior de tudo, no primeiro mergulho ela se encheu de água e parou de funcionar,ou seja, não é à prova d'água coisíssima nenhuma! Já entrei em contato com o vendedor para efetuar a troca do produto, mas ainda não obtive resposta. Espero que esta compra efetuada a tão pouco tempo (05/08/2009) não se tran...
