  • Summary: I love my waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, lifeproof camera. I enjoy kayaking, fishing, and skiing and prefer to have a camera with me that I don't have to worry about while I'm on the water or could possibly crash and crush the camera.
  • Pros: The durability of this camera is a top strength; I've dropped my camera too many times to count and it continues to work flawlessly. Also, having underwater capabilities means that I can take photos in more situations and without a bulky camera casing., The photos I've taken while outside with fu...
  • Cons: I've had limited success with the quality of under-water photos. The camera seems to have a harder time focusing on what you want it to, which can get frustrating., It also has a long delay between time you push the button and when the camera actually takes the photo; this can be irritating when ...

  • Summary: I Ioved this camera, in fact after my first one was stolen I purchased a second only three days later. I cannot be without! I work at a zoo and carry my camera with me at all times.
  • Pros: I travel a fair bit and my cameras have been on Africa safaris, through China and hiking the Galapagos. I have taken awesome photos/ video while snorkelling with sealions and penguins. The video may not be the best quality but it captures the moment (which is also why I carry it at work)., The si...
  • Cons: Picture quality not always up to expectations...but we also shoot with a DSLR., Memory card is a bit slow...animals move quickly and I don't always get the shot I'd like.

Rock solid adventure/theme park/pool/boat/ companion

Dave "Rhinodave2k", Amazon
23 June 2008
  • Summary: After a lot of research we bought the Olympus 770SW to have a camera we could take snorkeling, hiking, and many places/activities where I would not take my Nikon D80 or our beloved Minolta (RIP) point and shoot. I was concerned about reviewers who mentioned soft images and image quality.

Ideal compact digital

Caleb Izdepski "C4lE3", Amazon

  • Summary: I've used these 770SW's while traveling since they came out and love them. Most compact digitals break within a year - dropped, rained on, whatever. This is the answer, waterproof and drop-proof while relatively inexpensive.

Works great for shallow dives

  • Summary: We bought one of these to document our study sites for a scientific study. Our sites are between 3 and 10 feet deep, and this camera has allowed us to document it visually for an affordable price. It isn't always easy to see the vid screen, but we compensate by taking many shots.

Great, although finding settings tricky

  • Summary: Love this camera - suits me perfectly! Only negative thing is getting the right setting, some of the pre-sets just dont work for what theyre meant to, I find I use different ones for different things. Otherwise great.

Great camera for adventurous people

Zurcher, Amazon
29 August 2007
  • Summary: This camera rocks. I had the previous model (720SW) for about a year until a friend decided that "waterproof" included opening the battery compartment in the pool. (FYI: opening the battery compartment while the camera is underwater is a Bad Idea).
