  • Summary: So i got this camera hoping it would be really nice but actually it was not. After i took it in water once is began to get very bad. It got slow , if it takes videos they are tinted blue, shuts off after being on for 3 minutes even when fully charged and takes alot of blury pictures.

Terrible

  • Summary: The flash is too hot, so all you get is a bunch of white whenever you use flash. As far as waterpoof? I went to the beach with it, locked it as it says to do and the inside somehow got wet and now the camera is broken. Horrible investment.I haven't even had it for 5 months and it's ruined.

Not what I was looking for

  • Summary: I purchased this to replace my Canon powershot, whose flash stopped working. I thought I did my research, but am disappointed in this camera. Thought maybe once I got used to it I'd be okay, but I am planning to get a different camera. Cons: 1. When you turn the camera on, it does not default to Autofocus, but Program. Since I rarely use the program feature, I have to manually switch it to autofocus, or explain to the person taking the picture. 2.

Wouldn't buy it again

JTinSD, Amazon

  • Summary: This was an OK camera. I agree with the other posts in that the battery life was short, and it takes a long time to turn on. I purchased a referb, and the first time I put it just under the surface of the water, it was ruined, so be warned. I won't be buying another Olympus.

Spend the extra money and buy the 6xxx or 8xxx series

  • Summary: After having experience with not only the Olympus Tough 6020, 8000 and the 8010 I thought I had a pretty good grip on what to expect from the newer, and less expensive Tough 3000. I spent a weekend with it, mostly outdoors, and shot many stills and a few videos as well. It's getting returned to the store today and I hope to find another 80xx to take it's place.

beware

  • Summary: We had a previous model (Stylus 790 SW) and after 3 years of hard abuse the camera died on vacation. We purchased a 3000 as a no brainer because the old camera was so awesome. To be fair the 3000 takes good pictures, however, the battery life is useless. It lasts for about an hour worth of pictures. This makes the camera unusable for a day out. The old model would last for days of heavy use without needing a charge.

Crappy small camera, but works underwater

Sergei, Amazon

  • Summary: I used this camera during sailing trip to Tonga islands. There are only two good things about this camera: * It can be taken under water when snorkeling and it takes pictures here. * The price is much cheaper than any other camera+underwater box. Everything else is bad. * It takes about 1 or more seconds to take picture after pressing shutter button (with pre-focusing it takes less). When taking a picture of a moving object you always get not what you were aiming at.

  • Summary: hello all, i bought this product and returned it one month later. for Olympus this is the bottom line for there products. the shutter speed is very slow. buttons are very small and if not use to Olympus products can be very hard to navigate. i ended up with the olympus stylus tough 6000, which walmart sells here on line.

The Jury is still out! Battery problems!

T. Murphy, Amazon
23 May 2010
  • Summary: I just bought this camera 3 days ago. We are having a terrible time with the battery, it takes 2-3 hours to charge it plugged into the wall...by computer you need to make sure computer is not on power save/sleep mode or it will not charge & after 1-3 hours of use our battery is depleted/dead again.
