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. The setback is that you are not able to set it manually; instead the camera sets it automatically. I went underwater with TG1 (in a swimming pool, therefore just 5 feet deep). I have shot movies and took pictures and I got very pleased with both. Very good quality ...
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. One thing I've never done is expose any of my cameras to rain and I've never taken any rain shots but I took some abroad with this camera and I was pleased with the results.
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. As for durability - it is much mor plastic than it looks and soon started to condensate fog in cold water. But I like it as, well, pictures look great and it still works.
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 small drops etc. What else would this mean?
Summary: This is a nice sturdy camera, with a solid build quality and the reassurance knowing that it can take the unexpected knocks in life with no problems. However, if you are only going to have 1 camera, this is not for you. It features a miserable 4x zoom, not worth it, even my phone has a better zoom. This is so the camera lens does not protrude when in use, making the unit waterproof.
Summary: ive upgraded fom the Panasonic FT3 after loosing this it. Wante to try a different camera. The olympus feels nie ad strong and hopefully doesnt leak like my old panasonic. Olympus doesnt have video light, dosnt allow you to change video settngs, doesnt have adjustable shutter opening times, noisy video when zooming, and just doesnt perform as good as the panasonic. reason for going with the TG-1 is the addition of lenses, i got the fish eye and its great.
Pros: feels nice and solid, lens whic can be added, fish eye etc
Eigentlich eine gute Outdoor Kamera mit ein paar Abzügen

Summary: Die Kamera ist sehr solide verarbeitet und liegt gut in der Hand. Am Strand und im Wasser hat man nie Angst, dass irgendetwas die Kamera zerstören könnte, sei es Sand oder Wasser. Die Bildqualität ist durchschnittlich, meiner Meinung nach für den Preis jedoch etwas zu schlecht. Zudem habe ich noch folgende Punkte zu bemängeln: - Bildschirm schwer ablesbar bei Sonnenlicht, am Strand/unter Wasser kaum sichtbar (selbst bei hellster Einstellung) - Einstellrad kaum bedienbar,...
Summary: Wollte mir die TG-1 eigentlich für eine Trekkingtour durch Norwegen kaufen. Aus leidvoller Erfahrung weiß ich, dass 'normale' Reisezoom-Kameras sehr empfindlich gegen beispielsweise Sand sind. Wenn man bei stürmischen Wind oder Regen seine Reiseeindrücke festhalten will lässt sich aber der Kontakt mit Wasser oder Sand nie ganz ausschließen.
