Best camera I've ever owned

Summary: Totally waterproof !!! On our canoe trip we flipped over and amazing enough i was able to video the whole terrifying experience !!! i was amazed and very happy that i didn't lose any pictures or videos !!!
Summary: I was looking for a great alternative to the crummy quality of toy cameras. My daughter loves taking pictures with this one. Bonus that it was refurbished, so we got a great price and it works great. The only thing about giving it to a child, is it has a bazillion settings which are easy to change, so I have to make sure to put it back on factory default often to avoid random quirks.
Summary: Overall this camera is very user friendly and takes great pictures. I purchased it to be used as an underwater camera on dives (with the associated housing) and am very pleased with the quality of the pictures so far. The only downside is the battery that comes with it. Perhaps it is just my camera, but it doesn't seem to hold a charge as long as other cameras and batteries I have used in the past.
Summary: I work in a remote jungle area with locals who are still learning how to take good care of sensitive equipment. This camera has lasted 2 years+ now (if I remember correctly), being carrying through jungles, towns, and everything in-between. It's a very humid environment,and it's had no problems. Way to go Olympus! It is "Tough"! Now as for image quality etc., I don't know, but as for toughness, that's my 2 cents...
Summary: For the price we paid for this camera, it definitely surpassed my expectations. Takes excellent pictures, and has a surprising number of options for a point-and-shoot. Took it on my honeymoon in Puerto Rico and it does great underwater, also survived a fair number of bumps. So glad I got a tough camera.
Summary: This camera does everything it is advertised to do. I like the fact that it can survive a minor drop as we have lost three cameras from those types of accidents. The fact that it is somewhat survivable underwater is a plus too. I don't see a problem with battery life, just buy a second battery. I don't constantly view the images on camera or edit them there, maybe that is why I have no problem with battery life. It is a good camera for what I paid for it.
Summary: I bought this camera with the intention of just using it for a point and shoot. With that in mind, it works great! but there are a few caveats.. Battery life is limited especially if you shoot in HD. I corrected this by buying more batteries or using a small 100watt power inverter with a USB plug. Audio is pretty good for natural sound but don't expect 5.1 stereo. Especially if you just got it wet just a small drop in the front mic assemply/hole will muffle sound.
