Not waterproof

  • Summary: The camera is supposed to be waterproof. Brought it in my two week vacation and it broke on the third day with water getting inside it. False advertising, buy the Nikon.

User Review

emercp, DP Review
20 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this camera in March/2011 for the dream trip to Hawaii. It was a last minute buy, so I didn't have enough time to test it before I took off. During my very first visit to the beach, water got into the camera and it stopped working. I called Olympus from there and all they said they could do was repair it for me, which would take no less than 2 weeks.

Olympus Stylus tough and that's it

Alissa Byrne, Amazon
7 July 2011
  • Summary: I got this camera to replace my last Olympus stylus tough that I had and I am very disappointed. The camera doesn't focus where it's pointed so over half the pictures turn out blurry, it has a really long delay so if you are trying to take pictures of children the moment is gone by the time the camera takes the picture. It's tough, but Olypmus makes better cameras in the tough series. NOT worth the money.

Terrible

Amazon Customer, Amazon
29 June 2011
  • Summary: I was on vacation for a week with my friend and he was trying to use this camera. It consistently takes overexposed photos. I thought it was defective, until I googled "Olympus Tough 3000 overexpose" and found that this happens across the board, though the reviews tend to play it down. I'll give it to you straight: it is nearly impossible to take an acceptable photo with this camera.

Does not work as advertised (No Date Stamp)

Jonathan Harris, Amazon
15 June 2011
  • Summary: This camera does not date stamp images (necessary for a lot of legal professions). It only will stamp if you connect the camera to a PictBridge printer making it pretty much useless. Olympus needs to start adding this option as these cameras appeal to outdoor professionals. Amazon, please update the listing to clarify.

complete junk ~ Do NOT buy

Tabitha Bluelady Haney, Amazon
11 April 2011
  • Summary: **DO NOT BUY, NOT EVEN WORTH IT ON SALE!!!** I really wanted this camera as a Christmas present and am I ever sorry I chose this camera. First noted problem was the battery life, it rarely stays charged after 45 minutes of use, LDC screen on or not. I was considering buying a different battery but that turned out to be the least of it's problems. The stupid thing will not focus.

Battery life

Evilknight, Amazon
6 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera thinking hey water proof and drop proof would be perfect for our vaction to sea world. So we get it home and take it to the YMCA drop it in the deep end while it was on. seals work!!! wohoo right 30 mins later the battery is dead!! every time the battery dies in 30 mins, we even returned it for a new one and it did the same thing. From what ive read the higher models dont have battery issues. We might try one of those.

Olympus stylus tough 3000

Godzilla, Amazon
25 March 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I had good experiences with other Olympus cameras. I have been quite disappointed in the picture quality. Sharpness and exposure levels are both unacceptable. My old 4 megapixel Olympus actually takes pictures that are twice as good. I mainly wanted a newer model for the larger viewing screen. Too bad this one is so dissapointing.
