Do not believe the high reviews of this junk camera

Summary: I did, I succumbed to the online reviews stating this was the best way to go with a compact underwater camera. My boyfriend, who is a professional photographer, told me I would regret buying it. He was so opposed to me buying an Olympus he threatened to leave me if I bought it (joking of course). He told me that Olympus compacts cameras always have issues. So i completely ignored him and bought it anyway.
Summary: We have used this camera in all kinds of harsh conditions, the camera does well. The strap that comes with it is not good, it released twice, once in the ocean and we almost lost the camera and all the pictures on it. Use a different strap!!! Seriously!
Summary: After watching a bunch of online reviews we settled on the Olympus Stylus TG-2. One of the reviews showed it taking a video and being dropped, walked on, and Frozen/thawed. Good thing it is tough - I dropped in on day one and it bounced off rocks into a mud puddle!!! Still works great! I am looking at buying a soft silacone case asap.
Summary: We bought this camera for a trip to Hawaii. it was so much fun taking pictures and film under water during our snorkeling adventures. It also took great pictures above the water. We had no issues at all with leaking.
Summary: I got this camera as a Christmas gift from my husband, I've only had it for a few days, and I don't like writing reviews this early in the game, but there are so many positives so far, I just had to because there are things I'm finding with this camera that I hadn't seen reviewed yet. So here it goes!!! I've only had it 4 days because the first one out of the box on Christmas day was defective.
