Good at first, failed long term.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera for my honeymoon in 2008. It did great for all the practicing before our trip in the pool. It worked for snorkeling in Aruba the first time we went in the water. The second time we went in the water to snorkel, it was full of water.

Product failed us on a once in a lifetime vacation

  • Summary: Would not recommend buying this camera! We purchased this camera specifically for a vacation to Hawaii. The third time we used this camera (in only a few feet of water) it leaked. We called Olympus customer service from Hawaii to try to get a camera loan or replacement for the remainder of our trip...

  • Summary: The Olympus Stylus 770 SW brings one unique quality to the compact point-and-shoot category: robustness. It is marketed as a shockproof, freezeproof, waterproof wonder, one which can stand up to the outer limits of what anyone would consider reasonable for a piece of sophisticated electronics and...
  • Pros: On paper, a very rugged, robust, durable camera which opens the door to pictures under severe conditions.
  • Cons: The reality. There's a serious problem with the waterproofing on at least some of the examples of this camera. I've now been through two, and simply can't trust that the next one will be any better., Since this camera makes many picture quality compromises in pursuit of its vaunted durability, I ...

  • Summary: I brought this camera due to my panasonic lumiz TZ3 breaking after water spilt on it. And as im travelling the world i thought it would make sense to get a water proof camera. I had the camera for about 2 weeks and was disappointed already with the quality of the pictures it took, my guess is they...
