The camera takes great pictures, its portable

Julius Wilson, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this particular camera for about a year and a half now. This is the third Tough series camera I have owned. For the price you really can't complain about the image quality.. a GoPro this is not so don't confuse the two and expect the same performance.

Good waterproof camera

Amy Lawson, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the camera and the features. Easy to use. Just make sure all doors are locked before submerging. Photos are not great quality but for the price they are okay for memories of fun times had. Video above water was pretty good but have not tried under water yet. I would recommend!

  • Summary: I own other Olympus cameras. I compared and bought the TG-1 for it's rugged construction, F2 lens, and very fast focus. I do not use it under water although it is suited for that. The composure is excellent and comparable to the best 12 mp cameras I own.

great camera

niguis06, Amazon

  • Summary: thank you so much! fast delivery. I loved the features, loved the quality of the pictures. The only reason I am giving it a 4 rating and not a 5 is because it came with the manual for a different Olympus tg camera. Thank goodness for PDF. Other than that, pretty great. It was a pleasure to buy.

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.

Great underwater camera with some great picture features

  • 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.

So far so good

Eric F "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.

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.

User Review

pegasus1457, DP Review
30 December 2012
  • Excerpt: Nice camera. JPEGs are high quality. User interface is simple and well-designed. Using it underwater is very simple, just need to verify that both hatches are double-locked before submersion. The macro mode produces truly spectacular images. It compares favorably with any SLR macro lens.
