Everyone has an Olympus 1050 in my family

Excerpt: Everyone has an Olympus 1050 in my family. It's a basic modern camera and it is just very easy to use. Mine is black and to turn it on all you have to do is slide down the little panel in the front of the camera to reveal the lense. On the back it has a very big screen with all the buttons for your pictures. One thing I do not like about the camera is that it does not zoom in very far. My camera has done well underwater and takes great underwater pictures.
Summary: So after 3 years and 3 deployments later this camera has not failed me yet. the under water capture feature is amazing. even though it says 10 meters only or something like that i have gone deeper and have taken amazing photos around the world with this. the zoom is ok and can get a bit tricky to take a non shaky photo but i manage just fine.
Summary: this camera lasted me almost 2 years. It was a great camera but then the other day somehow water got in the lens. It droppped and something got messed up inside becasue after it dropped the cap over the battery and memory card wouldn't close althouhg it looked closed. Other than that it was a great camera!
Summary: I went through three digital cameras in 9 months and got sick of it- so i bought this to be me proof- have had it for one year no problems-with travelling too! picture is ok but camera is sturdy!!
Summary: This was out third waterproof point and shoot camera. The first one (a Pentax Optio) is somewhere being scrubbed by the sand of Lake Michigan, and apparently some one wanted the second one (an Olympus Stylus SW720) more than we did. This one, (the Stylus SW1050) was also stolen along with my wife's purse. We seem to have bad luck in that respect with these cameras!
Pros: Good pics, easy menus, can go virtually anywhere I want to take it.
Cons: Sliding lens cover protects lens, but can cause issues if not kept perfectly clean at all times.
Summary: This camera is a point and shoot intended for rugged use outdoors and underwater. It served me well on my trip to the Galapagos. Worked well underwater. I have been very satisfied with it. Picture quality is decent.
Summary: I've had this camera for about two years now, and it has proved its value to me again and again. It may have a shutter delay and lag a little bit, but all is forgiven when your camera survives the times other cameras would have fallen apart. This camera is a perfect point and shoot for your next camping trip, or skiing trip, or bike ride, or any other activity when you'd normally be afraid to take a regular camera. This past weekend I took it canoeing.
Summary: I really like this camera. When they say its durable and shockproof, they aren't lying. I have dropped this thing a lot already and there is yet to be a scratch on it. I took it under water and the pictures looks amazing and very clear. I would definitely suggest buying this camera if you have broken a bunch in the past like me.
