Summary: Worked okay underwater in mexico for 2 trips snorkling. I followed the directions and rinsed and made sure the seal stayed clean and dry and then it just stopped working one day at the lake. Wasn't even using it underwater. It is very slow and take a long time to take the picture. The picture quality is pretty poor. I won't buy Olympus again.
Summary: I purchased this camera because previously i had lost cameras due to drops, both on floors and/or in water. This camera has proven very durable. The camera has a slow response in low light situations, other than that it meets all my needs.
Summary: I bought this thing to use in diving and as a pocket camera when traveling. Although it leaves a little to be desired, you can still take great pictures as long as you're just viewing them on a computer screen. Very durable and rugged. I've dropped it, drowned it, and generally neglected it and it still looks good and works perfectly.
Summary: my camera eventually stopped turning on at all. i was disappointed that olympus seemed to be aware that there was a reoccurring issue and they refused to warranty it for me. they wanted over $100 to repair it!! i'll never buy another olympus product again.
Summary: None of the features panned out the way I expected. WATER USE: Yes, it's waterproof, but it doesn't help if it takes terrible underwater pictures. Even if you could maneuver the non-user friendly settings/options, there is no way you can get the lighting and speed right. All my pix came out blurry or discolored. I would have been better off with a disposable camera.
Summary: I ORIGINALLY WAS UINIMPRESSED WITH THIS CAMERA BUT NOW HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART. I WAS FRUSTRATED BECAUSE SOME OF THE ACCESSORIES WERE MISSING BUT AFTER THEY ARRIVED, I WAS ABLE TO UTILIZE ALL THE CAPABILITIES OF THE CAMERA. I AM NOW VERY IMPRESSED AND WOULD PURCHASE ANOTHER.
Excerpt: I love it!! Just what I needed for the lake house. I can take pictures on and around the water without having to worry about the camera getting wet. I love the quality of the pictures that I have taken so far. I wish it had a litte bit better zoom. I guess you can t have everything. The battery life is amazing, you can use it all day and never have to worry about finding time to charge it.
Excerpt: I purchased the Olympus Stylus Tough digital camera because I needed a really durable camera that could withstand the abuse that comes with a very active toddler. I also like the added value of the waterproof feature (since we spend a lot of time around water with said toddler). While the waterproof feature is really nice, it's really the only great feature about this camera. The Olympus Stylus Tough does not take fabulous pictures.
