Not a good replacement!

Summary: I had an older version of the waterproof camera by olympus. When my water seal finally broke I invested in this one. Overall, the flash is too bright! I use my camera both indoors and in water and for evening use, it washes out the face! Outside and near water the camera is fine. It has a very slow capture time, so some special moments come and go before the camera take the pics.
Summary: In just a few words, the camera is nice, is fine.... is not stunning but is fine, I have had a olympus cameras before and this one is not bad but doesnt shine, the price is really good, because for 150$ ur getting a 12 MP waterproof camera, but is kind of slow and is not as easy to control as the Olympus tough 6000... but is cheapear... and its quality of pic is not bad.
Summary: I bought this Olympus Stylus Tough 3000 for my 3 year old grand-daughter instead of a "toy" camera and have been extremely pleased with how well it has worked for her. She has no problem turning it on or off or triggering the shutter. The lens location in the upper corner was initially a problem but she quickly learned to keep her fingers lower on the camera.
love it for the beach or pool, but won't replace my land camera

Summary: I own 2 of these cameras. I was looking for a waterproof camera because every year we're at the beach, waterpark, pool, and just started jet skiing. I bought this for my 7 year old because it's a tough camera. She's dropped it 3x on cement and it survived. Takes great underwater pictures but it is just okay for land pictures. I bought a second Olympus Stylus for myself to capture the beach and waterpark pics. I have 3 cameras..
Summary: I see a lot of Reviews of this product by "Photographers", who yap on about ISO settings, and blah, blah, blah. Here's the deal. If you're such a pro, why are you using a hundred dollar camera? For all you shutter jockeys out there reviewing hundred dollar cameras, STOP PLAYING WITH THE SETTINGS! It's a point and shoot! I bought the Stylus Tough 3000 PURELY ON PRICE POINT to replace a Stylus 1030 SW that is aging....
Summary: The battery sucks, maybe a aftermarket battery would be better. No optical zoom, but you knew that going in, because it is a waterproof camera. The waterproof part is great, it says 10 feet or 3 meters, I had it diving in the Great Barrier Reef and took it under 18 meters. It was looking like it was going to break at any time, so not sure how much farther down I would take it, but it worked, no floods.
Summary: I opted to by this camera instead of a Gopro because it has a LCD monitor, SD card/battery option, and doesn't require a waterproof case. All-in-all it's a good point -and-shoot. Video wise it records best with a Class 6 SD card and will drain the battery quickly if you are not careful. I take mine kayaking and always make a travel video. The audio on it is somewhat lacking since it records in mono.
