Tough and handy, but too much noise

Summary: I waivered between 2 and 3 stars, initially deciding on the former. This camera has some great strengths--tap control, water resistance, cold and heat resistance, impact resistance. However, the photos it takes have too much noise. They are so grainy.
Summary: I bought this camera for a deep discount. The only thing it ended up having that I wanted was a non-expanding lense. I thought a $300 camera would have amazing picture quality.... Not so much. The pictures in the screen were grainy, and they printed as such.
If you don't want to miss a thing, this camera's not for you.

Summary: I had purchased this camera a few months ago due to the shockproof characteristic, however I'm now buying a new camera because the lag when taking a picture is so slow that I feel it misses everything. Almost not even worth the extra shockproof/waterproof capabilities.
Summary: OK, it isn't a professional camera. But having carried it all over the world, I can say it has survived drops, smashes in luggage bins, duststorms in the desert, and underwater during a heavy squall in Belize. Picture quality is outstanding, and it fits in a shirt pocket.
Summary: There are many reviews about slow shutter but I wanted to add my experience. The shutter is so slow that the camera simply cannot be used for shots of moving scenes. I was trying to take a picture of my wife on the teacups at Disneyland.
Summary: Had this camera for about 2 months now. The waterproof feature makes it fun, and it's great to take pool pictures, lake pictures, etc. and not worry about water. It's fun to watch people freak out when you toss it in the pool and then dive in. Tested at 10' of water, and no problems.
Summary: This was the third olympus stylus i have owned and I am grateful that Canon finally made an underwater camera. The first stylus had to be sent in for repairs after 8 months. the seals around the battery compartments do not last a full year so leaking occurs.
Summary: I got this camera onsale and thought that since it was waterproof and dropable that it would be a really great buy. Im in the outdoors every weekend during the summer. The delay between pushing the button and the camera taking the picture is too long.
Summary: They claim: "The Stylus 1050 SW performs as well under water as it does on land because its lightweight, aluminum exterior is matched with interior rubber gaskets and O-rings to seal out the elements. It can take photos while being fully submerged to depths of approximately 10 feet (3 meters).
Summary: I bought this camera b/c it was waterproof and shockproof. Sounded perfect for vacations and for on our boat. The underwater part worked awesome and I loved that. But the shutter delay was just too long. And when the camera auto focused it took even LONGER to get a picture.
