Meh camera. Yes it is waterproof but pictures leave much to be desired.

  • Summary: Not digging the picture quality at all. Pictures seem washed out. The flash is pretty bad. I would rate it OK overall. No issues with waterproofing.

After using the product for several trips I find it to be only okay

Paul W., Amazon

  • Summary: When snorkeling the buttons get pushed which changes the settings, starts recording, viewing pics, etc...The underwater pics are fantastic but the above water pics are okay. After just a few uses it has frozen screens at times. I pulled the battery to reset but not sure why it does that.

  • Excerpt: Good thing about that camera in comparison with Canon D20, for instance, is that TG-1 has a f as low as 2.0 while D20 has a f3.5 (if I am not mistaken) which is quick dark when you think about underwater.

  • Excerpt: I took this camera abroad and it performed very well in all weather conditions. Although I will probably never take it underwater, it's good to know that this camera is safe in the rain.

  • Excerpt: Purchased one three months ago as replacement for Pentax w60. Much better. Fast lens and less noise. Good movies and screen. Pictures look great on retina IPad but... Only if not enlarged. Both sharpening and denoising are very strong and enlarged photos look poor.

It is what it is

now what, Amazon
8 August 2012
  • Summary: The first part of this review is an "out-of-water" review; below it is a review of performance in and on the water. Design and controls: --Design: attractive, functional. Tradeoff between small size and crowded controls worked out OK once you get used to it. --Double-latch doors: good idea.

Good camera but not great

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: I own the Canon D10 and Sony TX10 and anxiously awaited the D20 and TX20. But seeing that the D20 lens is even slower than the D10, I passed. The TX20 gained some enhancements such as faster time to start recording video and improved playback, but the sensor and lens and overall operations are...

Camera is Incomplete

  • Summary: My previous WP camera was a Pansonic which took great video but the images really suffered from pixel packing and over processing. I bought this Oly primarily for its fast, quality lens.

"Shockproof" camera

Sam, Amazon
25 March 2013
  • Summary: When I think of the term "Shockproof", I think of something that is able to withstand a certain amount of physical abuse. When this term is applied to a camera (which is also given the name "tough") it makes me think that this camera is able to take a certain amount of accidental damage, such as...
