Summary: After finishing two OM-2 analog cams and two excellent, non waterproof, finepix compacts on my journeys I went for something sturdier. The dust and humidity is what finished my analogs and the water and occational knocks is what did in the finepix´s. Here I have a camera protected from all that and holds opprox. 30 gb of storage (extra memorycards) and with a mini charger and extra battery only packs the same footprint as two packs of cigg.
Summary: We spend a lot of time at the beach. I wanted a camera that I didn't have to worry about getting wet. It really is waterproof. I have had it for several years now and still love it. I have dropped it a ton too and it works fine.
Summary: i read reviews on this model and wanted to try it..... i bought one and i was not disappointed with the camera is fast, the photos are sharp and good quality, low light photos where quite good and what impressed me the most was the video quality and sound, the battery is ok and the camera is light and easy to use.
After a year, being in the river in CO mountains, and in the pool I still love this camera!

Summary: I got the Olympus Stylus 1050 SW camera for Christmas last year and it has been the best camera I have ever had! I'm not saying it takes professional photos or videos but I have captured some of my favorite memories that I could never replace with it. I am on the clumsy side so it has been dropped, left outside, and put through the ringer :) It has been in my diaper bag out of a case...as many moms know...this can be a messy place. You can rinse it and it is like new.
Summary: I've had it since July of 2008. It's been a great camera! I've never had a single problem with it. It's the best camera I've ever purchased. I've seen comments by other people saying they think it's slow or delayed. Personally, I think they're using the wrong setting. I have not had this problem.
Summary: Bought this for my son to take on a 1000-mile sailing trip over open ocean, and couldn't have made a better choice! Intuitive user interface, superb pictures, and absolutely the right device for that environment. We will enjoy the record of his trip in fine quality photos for decades to come.
Summary: First the negative: Yes, there is some lag after pushing the shutter button, as well as inbetween photos. I knew that going into the purchase, though it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I can live with that, however, because otherwise this camera is amazing. I had a Nikon Coolpix 550, which gave me the dreaded "lens error" message after only 3 months, and it never worked again.
