Surprisingly good photos, rugged, wish had more manual controls

Summary: Overall a terrific compact camera. Photos came out much better than expected. I didn't try its waterproof'ness, but it's certainly rugged and weather strong rain. Battery life is average. I recommend getting an extra battery. Wish it used regular SD chip rather than XD. I would buy it again.
Summary: and this camera is my buddy... I have the lime version and we've been almost everywhere together since December 2007. Just last week, I took it with me to a rock concert and got some great photos (more on that a little later).
Summary: We bought this camera with the intention of taking it outdoors for hiking, rock climbing, snorkeling, trail running, etc... Although the picture quality was not perfect, we were able to capture all our adventures on this camera.
Summary: Had this camera for a little more than a year and can't say how happy I am with its durability. I do a lot of kayaking, crew and water sports and it is such a comfort to know that this can be brought into the boat without any worries.
4 stars for Olympus warranty, minus 1 star for durability

Summary: We purchased this camera for our son who builds water parks and takes photographs of job progress. We figured he would need a camera that was waterproof and rugged. It fit the bill, however, it was crushed by his leaning on it when it was perched on the center console in his truck.
Summary: I bought this camera to use while backpacking and canoeing. I was attracted to the waterproof and shockproof features, and it is indeed waterproof (I haven't dropped it yet, so I don't know about the shockproof part).
Great for underwater shots, lacking in optical zoom

Summary: I was a little nervous to purchase this camera due to some reviewers who had obviously purchased faulty (leaky) cameras. I am happy to say that this camera took fabulous underwater shots on my recent cruise to the Bahamas. The shots are clear and perfectly focused.
Summary: So the LCD screen got really scratched up the first time I used it (went tubing down a river so it's mostly my fault). It has shown to be very shock and water-proof. It is really tough to figure out how to take black and white shots.
