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.
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. The pictures i have taken for the tube back to the boat that is pulling us...
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.

Excerpt: This camera was purchased for my husband who is a fisherman and not too computer or electronic literate. He always seems to drop things, gets them wet or just can't figure things out.

Summary: I am an advanced amateur photographer and I own various cameras: Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3K 7.2MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Black) point & shoot , Nikon D300s 12MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) Nikon D300s, Sony cibershot. I bought this camera one year ago (november 2010) for my daughters, 6 & 4 years old, after I had bought Digital Blue U Turn Digital Camera (Blue) that I returned because we didn't like it (see review).
Summary: I bought the Olympus camera for my boyfriend. He is an extreme hunter and fisherman. He loves camoflauge and I do admit, is a bit clumsy. When I read the camera is 10 ft. shock proof and 10 ft. waterproof I knew that would be the perfect camera for him. I loved even more that it came in camoflauge. He goes on hunting trips and fishing trips all the time and takes his camera with him. It is the perfect camera for his trips. The quality of the pictures are great as well!
