NOT for underwater use

michaelrkistler, Ebay
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Do NOT buy this camera if you are planning on taking it underwater. I had one previously, the first day I used it I set it on the first step of my pool (6" of water) and it stopped working. That said, I did buy another for kayaking and it works ok, but it's never taken the plunge. Ok, I'm now 0 for 2 with this camera. I took the second one snorkeling with no intention of taking it below the surface. I wasn't in the water 10 seconds before it flooded.

  • Summary: I was not happy at all when I recieved my camera. It was suppose to be brand new and there are scratches on it and the box is worn-apparently not new. Also it was suppose to come with a charger and it didnt so now I am stuck having to find the right charger and pay more than I should have to.

Tested at the store... Disappointed.

  • Summary: I very recently bought the new Fuji Z33 WP camera, but since I am unhappy with the high levels of image noise, I will be returning it and looking for a replacement. The other top camera on my list was the Olympus 550WP. I went to a major electronics store yesterday and had the opportunity to play with the 550WP. The salesman even let me put my microSD card into the camera to save some test shots to view on my computer at home.

Waterproof but not foolproof

8 August 2009
  • Summary: Given that there isn't a camera out there that met all my buying criteria, this was the best waterproof choice for me, at the price.
  • Pros: Small, waterproof, inexpensive, good video format. Devices seen as folder under Windows.
  • Cons: Slow autofocus, crazy power save function, no viewfinder, proprietary battery, special USB cable.

Olympus Stylus 550WP

  • Summary: I love the look of this camera and the fact that it's underwater. The image quality on screen isnt as accurate as seeing the photo on your computer, clarity-wise. Easy methods of changing modes, which I like. Also comes with cord to hook up to your t.v. and CD program to help with editing your photos, which is awesome. The anti-shake isnt as effective as I had hoped, like that of Canon cameras, but for an underwater camera I can live with it.

Olympus stylus 550wp for underwater fun

jurcc, Ciao
11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: "I bought Olympus Stylus 550WP two years ago just for curiosity, because I wanted to see how camera can be waterproof, because we all know that quote "Electricity and water do not mix". At first I was affraid to put it in the water, but then you get used to it and throw it around like a stone. It's sealed very tightly everywhere, you just have to be sure that you closed battery and USB hatch, because those two are only openings and water may leak there ...
  • Pros: low price, good quality, light, small, waterproof
  • Cons: No audio speaker, battery
