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.

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...

Tap control makes life very difficult in cold weather

  • 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.

Water leaked in, camera failed, Olympus didn't want to honor warranty

  • Summary: Pros; decent photos, simple enough to use, intuitive controls, waterproof(maybe) Cons; sliding lens cover moves in bag or pocket turning on camera and leads to dead battery. not easy to see viewfinder when snorkeling. I treated this camera with much TLC.

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.

Some silly flaws

Amazon Customer "Chris P. OConnell", Amazon
26 September 2009
  • Summary: I'm new to this camera, and I'm used to using a Cannon 50D. I bought this camera because the 50D is just too big to lug around, and I'm afraid of dropping it in the water. So far, I haven't gotten any of the pictures from the camera to my computer. More on that in a bit. The good: 1. Small 2.

  • Summary: Tough camera that works well in difficult conditions. It does have a considerable delay that makes action shots difficult. Good value compared to other similar cameras. Does not have a view finder in addition to screen.

Great

Amanda Haley, Amazon

  • Summary: I took this camera with me on a 3 week trip through Europe. I was very happy with how this camera worked. The panoramic picture feature is very cool. It did take a while to play with the settings and figure out how to get the best picture, so at first my pictures were a little blurry.

Good camera but has some flaws

Ryan Cuprak, Amazon

  • 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.

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!
