Excerpt: I have bought Olympus Stylus 850 SW on installment. This is one of those cameras that I would call super reliable and very durable too. It has been not that many times that this has fallen because I really take care of it.
Summary: Gosh, I've had this camera for a LONG time and never wrote a review! It's a great camera. Working fabulously. Underwater. I drop it... what else. It's been all over Europe too! I highly recommend!!!
Excerpt: I waited for 6 months on a waiting list at target for this camera. I absoulutly love it! I am quite clumsy and i also have kids, so the shock proof feature is a must have for my family. it comes in a great teal and siver color, with a big very clear screen on the back. It has tons of options including an underwater function that is so fun to use at the pool or going fishing and camping.A sports function to take great no blurred shots at any game or event.
Excerpt: I love this camera... It truly feel good to be able to leave it on a table and know that it's ok if someone spills water on it... Another great thing is you can go Jet-skiing, water-skiing, waterfalls, pool, waterparks... you name it and you will be the only one that can actually take your camera with you.. Now on the bad side....
Olympus Stylius 850 SW is one of a kind, do you have yours yet?

Excerpt: I received the Olympus Stylius 850 SW as a christmas gift from my best friend. The color of my camera caught my attention off the bat, it is blue but not just typical blue and I liked that. Ilike to have a different color than form anyone else. The quality and clarity of the pictures come out really good. The camera is lightweight and you can put it in your pocket and it really is not of a bother in it.
Excerpt: I bought the Olympus Stylus 850SW as a second camera. I wanted one that could survive a dunking. I didn't expect to love it the way I do. Downsides: 1) Proprietary battery. You can't just plug in AA batteries when the rechargeable runs out. 2) Proprietary data cable. A standard mini USB would be nice. 3) Proprietary memory card for full functionality. I knew all these before I bought it and bought it anyway.
Excerpt: This was my favorite camera of all time (I was so sad that it got stolen). I have had other underwater cameras (Olympus and Pentax) and they just don’t compare! This camera took great underwater, outdoors, and even indoor pictures! Most other underwater cameras take terrible indoor pictures. I have dropped this camera and even taken it white water rafting, fishing, jet skiing, etc. and have had no problems with it at all! Highly recommend it to all!
The Stylus is a great camera for about a year then it goes down!

Excerpt: This is a great camera for a while, the quality and convience are truly wonderful. After about a year the camera starts to leak. When a waterprof camera is not truly waterproof it is a flop. Customer service from Olympus is horendous. I will not EVER purchase another olympus product because of my experiences with this camera and the service that I have recieved from the company.
