Apparently not Waterproof

Hailey Harper, Amazon
19 December 2012
  • Summary: This camera lasted about 5 minutes before it stopped working. It was submerged only briefly on and off during that time. Then the lens fogged up and it only took blurry pictures. Then, a few minutes later it stopped working all together. It wouldn't turn on at all.

JUNK!!

P. A. Hunter, Amazon
13 December 2012
  • Summary: I bought this camera in 2007. Used it very little(less than 100 photos). I took it on a fall hiking trip and it worked at first then started taking photos that looked like a sheer white curtain was in front of the lens. After a long conversation with the repair dept.

ruins precious moments!

  • Summary: This camera ruins any social event you would like to capture. I bought this camera hoping it was the solution to every problem I have ever had in my life. The problem with this camera is that it falls out of my pocket seemingly everytime I move my leg...walking, sitting or laying down.

waterproof? No way!

RP, Amazon

  • Summary: The 790SW I bought died just 3 times upon contact with water. Water got onto screen and the battery compartment. Call customer service, sent it (guaranty expires in 1 year).

Terrible photos, holiday memories ruined

R. Taplin, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: This is the worst camera I have ever owned by far. Every single on of the photos it took on holiday are blurry, over exposed or grainy. I have used cameras for many years and will never buy this brand again. Do not buy into the gimmicks about shock proof, just get a camera and look after it.

poor overall design

Bernard A. Crenn, Amazon
8 December 2008
  • Summary: Olympus Stylus 790SW 7.1MP Waterproof Digital Camera with Dual Image Stabilized 3x Optical Zoom (Orange) Very disappointing camera. The lens is right where your finger needs to be to hold the camera well. You cannot shoot before a 2 second delay and having to press OK buttons.

Too many flaws for $250. It has/had potiential.

AgentX, Amazon
16 June 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera upon its release in 2007 and now after almost a year, I have some opinions. I'll try to keep it simple. XD card format: Going the way of the dinosaur. Finding decent priced cards is hard. Also, the XD format tops out at 2gb. Unaaceptable. This in itself is a deal breaker.

Poor Quality

W. James "W James", Amazon
6 May 2008
  • Summary: This camera has poor quality shots and pretty much always requires a flash. The waterproof feature is good, but it doesn't make up for the other bad things. I would not recommend this camera, and if your looking for a good point-and-shoot, get one of the Nikon Coolpix cameras or the Canons.
