A very poor camera
Eduardo Hernandez "Piolo", Amazon
27 March 2014
Summary: It's a very poor camera. It takes forever to wait until you can take the next photo. For the price is a nothing! After the first month we just put it inside a a box in the basement. I will like to return it!
Summary: I got this product and followed the directions exactly but the first time I used it, it got water damage and there was water in the lens. I tried dozens of times to contact the seller and get a refund, as it does have a one year warranty, but no one ever got back to me.
Summary: This camera was a disappointment. It only lasted on two vacations before it completely died. (of course it was just out of warranty by then...) I was very disappointed as we had treated the camera very well in spite of it's "tough" status and had only taken it into the water for photos (only while...
Summary: I've had two other previous digital cameras, both Canons. I bought this one in 2011 for backpacking since I need one that can handle abuse and getting wet. I never dunked it and never dropped it. I just sent it in for repair for the second time, and they're asking $112 to fix it. Ouch.
Summary: I've tried multiple settings - it's a headache to get a good picture with this camera. My images continually come out dim and blurry. My camera worked nothing like the model I tried in the store. With other cameras I've ownedd images were vivid and quick to take.
Summary: I purchased this camera just over a year ago, always acted a little funny but never had any real problems with it. Then about 10 days after the warranty expired this "waterproof" camera got completely waterlogged, water in the image sensor and is now completely useless.
Summary: Had the previous Stylus Tough for several years and loved it. Finally bit the dust and decided to just upgrade to the newer model. What a mistake! The camera was woefully slow, very poor image quality and broke the FIRST time it went in the water.
Summary: My camera only last for 1 month, I used it for one week in the beach and it took great pictures underwater, then I used it in the pool (1 meter or less deep) and water got in (the lock was secure) I don't recommend this camera to anyone! unless you want to lose some money..
Does not have the ability to date/time stamp jpeg image files

Summary: Bought this camera as a job camera, not for pleasure. Unfortunately it does not allow adding a date stamp directly on the jpeg image files. Not good. The only way to add the date is during printing utilizing a PictBridge compatible printer. "0" stars if I could.
Olympus Tough Camera 6020 - Not What It Says It Is!
Garrett E. Coble, Amazon
4 August 2011
Summary: After some basic research for a camera to be used solely for vacations to tropical locations, I settled on the Olympus Tough 6020 camera. I was sold on the features of the camera, particularly the ability shoot pictures and video under water. What a mistake.
