Reliable but bring lots of batteries!

C. Benner "- Email Junkie", Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned mine for a couple years now and I can say it's reliable for lasting through the dust, water and a couple shocks.. But overall I'm not happy with the camera. On the automatic setting, the flash is over bearing and it takes photos that are too white. It's a slow camera too. People around me who try to use it complain that it takes forever to focus and snap the first photo.

Durable but Frustrating

  • Summary: It has held up to water exposure. Image quality isn't great. Camera processes slow. I do not like the slide/lens cover, it is falling apart. Sometimes I will just slip the camera into my pocket while I am out fishing and the camera inadvertently gets turned on and off from the slide cover opening and eventually when I want to take a picture the battery is dead. The screen is hard to protect and as-such is very scratched up now.

Tap control makes life very difficult in cold weather

Alan R. Light, Amazon

  • Summary: I have bought three Olympus Stylus rugged cameras, the 1000, 1030, and 1050. The first two had both advantages and disadvantages, the 1050 had primarily disadvantages - especially the tap control. Let me say first that I have been pleased with all of the cameras in terms of picture quality and ruggedness, though I think the 1000 was the best in that regard. I loved the wide angle feature on the 1030.

For moderate users

  • Summary: What I like about this camera is its underwater functions and the outlook. But it doesn't take very clear pictures as compared to my current Kodak EasyShare V550 5.0MP. A 12MP is not as clear as a 5MP? I'm surprised! But for a moderate user who want a point and shoot camera, this is good enough. I bought it for my younger brother who likes going snorkeling. Since my brother is only using it for normal photographing, he said it's good enough for him.

Good camera but has some flaws

Ryan Cuprak, Amazon
28 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a good camera for outdoor photography but it does have some design flaws. I bought this camera for my trip to the Grand Canyon and also took along my Canon Rebel xti for the dry hikes when I wasn't running rapids. The flaws I ran into: - battery life is not the best, a battery lasted at most three days.

brains vs. brawn

A. Kinney "the skeptical optimist", Amazon

  • Summary: I decided to get this camera after breaking two lovely caseo cameras in a row. How did they break? Trying to take a timed shot--I placed the camera on a shelf and because it's slightly top heavy, and it keeled over and smashed both times. Well, finally learned my lesson! This new camera has no external zoom, so that's one thing I don't have to worry about breaking. It's also shock-proof and water-proof. Basically, idiot-proof.

Slow shutter

  • Summary: Nice little camera that is easy to use. Drawback is the s-l-o-w shutter. Miss some shots due to the shutter lag.

great and not so great

Jessica Guli "my3sons", Amazon
1 January 2009
  • Summary: Whats Great: durability, picture quality is great so far too...I have 3 small boys, so I needed to buy something that could handle them. I have always purchased olymupus cameras becuase of the picutre qauality, but my boys seem to always manage to throw my cameras out a window, or into water...this was my only choice. There are no other's like it on the market in this price range. What's not so great: shutter delay..i hate it.

Getting there...........

  • Excerpt: "I have used Olympus compacts for a number of years, mainly because I was very impressed with the original mju. Sadly the subsequentreplacements have never quite lived up to the the first one, which I think was a 1.3mp. This is surprising because technically they have been incrementally better, with advances in most areas. As a non techincal user, I'm guessing that the lense of the original camera was it's strong point, and while the megapixels increased, ...
  • Pros: Small, capable and semi rugged .  Haven't tried it underwater, and doubt that I will .
  • Cons: The sliding lense cover is easily moved down, resulting in the camera turning on while being carri

  • Summary: A câmera realmente presta aos fins a que se destina, mas seus recursos deixam um pouco a desejar. Por outro lado, a relação custo x benefício é boa.
  • Pros: As fotos embaixo d'água ficam excelentes.
  • Cons: O obturador é muito lento, Não possui sistema de iluminação (infra-vermelho), para tirar fotos em ambientes escuros, O vídeo não possui zoon e sua qualidade não é boa
