Tough handy camera

K. Byford "dog lover", Amazon
20 September 2013
  • Summary: I ordered this camera a year ago because my big nice digital SLR broke (it's 8 years old). I wanted a smaller camera that I could put in my pocket and take on hikes with my dog, to the dog park, use in the rain of Seattle, take photos of my pet fishes, not worry about it in bars when I go see bands, etc. I researched for a long time and settled on this. I like Canon, and Olympus for cameras. All my analog and digital cameras have been Olympus except for my Canon 20D.

"Great camera you can take anywhere!"

  • Pros: Takes great pictures, like having the option of a zoom lens attachment. Easy to use overall
  • Cons: I've had my camera since June 2012 & had to send it back 2x to be fixed. Both times Olympus fixed the camera & sent it back in a timely manner, however it was sent back with a hair inbetween the lens'! This time the function button came off the ba

Great camera you can take anywhere!

Cameraluver2013, CNET

  • Summary: I don't think I am any rougher on this camera than I am on others that I own, and this is the only one I've ever had to send in to be repaired! Had I not purchased the extended warranty I would be a whole lot more frustrated about repairs, esp. since the camera is so expensive, and mine is not that old!

great lens!

  • Summary: Got this about a month ago. Took plenty of pictures with it. Though it is a great lens and it does what is supposed to do, it is not flawless. 2 problems with it: 1. At minimal distance it creates that fisheye effect where the center appear magnified and the corners are not 2. If you need to use the flash with it you can't. It creates a halo around the object you photograph. So, the middle stays in the dark while the outside is illuminated.

A great camera for what I was made to do.

  • Summary: The TG 1-iHs is a great camera for what it was made for. I also have DSLR camera that iuse when I want higher quality photos. The Olympus is great for an underwater abusable camera. One of the main reasons I bought this tough camera was because of the relatively small shutter lag. Many of the tough type cameras were reakly bad for shutter lag. This camera is awesome. I think it is rated at a .3 second shutter lag. It is not noticeable.

  • Summary: This camera is very easy to use. After taking underwater pictures, it is easy to clean. Just put in clean water for 10 minutes. Takes great underwater photos. I am very happy with this purchase.

Great underwater camera with some great picture features

Canyon "'80's Man", Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: This camera has some very good picture enhancement features that can add some artistic flare to your photos. Like mirror effects, rustic effects and other features. It does a good job at finding faces for face shots and has a really great panoramic feature that actually guides you in positioning the camera so that the scene meshes with the previous shot. The camera produces the panoramic internally so that you don't need to worry about post processing.

So far so good

E. Forti "40", Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: So far I'm really liking this camera. It has a lot of cool features (like a watercolor mode) that I didn't know about up front. I've done a couple videos and haven't noticed the clicking issue talked about in some of the forums online. I've submerged the camera in my pool for pics and video and the clarity is excellent. My only complaint is the light sensor so far.

Do not buy ButterflyPhoto Accessories!!

Robert D. Beyer, Amazon
10 January 2013
  • Summary: My Christmas present camera had to be returned because it didn't work. Amazon responded promptly, and all things resolved. As it turns out, it might not have been the camera! I purchased a bundle of accessories that appeared on the purchase screen. I particularly wanted the 32G card. The Amazon seller was ButterflyPhoto. The 32G card I got either wasn't compatable with the camera, or is defective, which also caused the camera to constantly freeze.
