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!
Summary: This camera was used in a pool at a depth of about 1 foot under the water. It was the first time that I had submersed it or even got it wet. After less than 60 seconds, it would not function. I removed it from the pool, and it was full of water. You could see the water line behind the LCD.
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...
Don't take it to the beach. Don't put it in your pocket.

Summary: We are big fans of waterproof cameras, we're tough on our point and shoot cameras. I bought this one to replace a Pentax Optio w10 which just plain could not handle the abuse I heaped upon it.
Summary: I purchased this camera before a vacation in the FL Keys and took about 300 great shots. I was absolutely satisfied with the features and performance. The delay before and after taking a shot was irritating but acceptable as the camera is waterproof. I went snorkelling with it 3 times.
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.
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: I bought this camera to take snorkeling pictures while my wife and I celebrated our 35th anniverary in Cozumel. Everything was going great until the second day of snorkeling when I was hovering approximately six feet above a 3.5 foot barracuda and the screen went squiggly and then black.
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.
Pros: Small compact size. On/Off slider is nice feature.
Summary: I loved the features on this model,but after taking several pictures I began to notice poor color quality. At first I thought it might be hazy weather conditions.So, I took identical pictures with the 1050SW and my other Olympus camera and discovered that it was the camera that lacked good color...
