My first - and last - Olympus camera purchase.

Balmaha, Amazon
25 September 2015
  • Summary: The best thing about this camera is its underwater function. The sad thing is that it's temperamental. After the last few weeks of struggling to get this camera to work consistently, it's finally defunct.

Make sure the seals are replaced every year or it will leak....

SB, Amazon
13 April 2015
  • Summary: If I could give it 0 stars, I would. I purchased this camera on March 8, 2014 based on good reviews. It was rarely used, but I wanted an underwater camera for the few times I would go snorkeling. Between March 22-March 29, we were on a trip where we when snorkeling every day. A guess what?

Do not believe the high reviews of this junk camera

Sherry G, Amazon
31 March 2014
  • 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).

Not waterproof!

  • Summary: Camera takes good pictures but it leaks water to inside the camera so lens gets foggy. Battery life is good. Underwater pics are fair. Camera is overprice.

Failed on first use in ocean

6 November 2013
  • Summary: Died on first use in the ocean during my honeymoon (Fortunately, I had the foresight to bring multiple camera but only one waterproof one). As far as I can tell, the water leaked in through the mode dial.

Horrible Camera - Not worth the money

Kateson, Amazon
2 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera back in March when it first came out. I was looking for a durable underwater camera. Since March I have used it a handful of times and I am not impressed. I understand that when you choose an underwater camera you lose some quality.

Rugged Fail

TimRobinsin, Amazon
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I have been shooting with a Nikon AW100 for the last 2 years. Recently the AW100 was damaged and went in for repair. In the meantime I wanted to try something else. I picked up the TG-2 in time for a fishing trip to michigan.

wrong charger plug, camera dead

Longshadow, Amazon
16 October 2013
  • Summary: The "Tough" little Olympus TG-2 iHS is pretty to look at, but it sits dead in front of me. Amazon's Pavillion Electronics sent a charger cable with a European style 3-pronged plug, instead of a standard 2-pronged plug. I live in Oregon, so someone at Pavillion goofed.

Camera topped working 30 mins into beach trip.

Timothy Rogers, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: 30 minutes into a family beach trip at Destin, Fl the camera stopped working. It will not do anything and it has not gone underwater. We are just outside our amazon return window so we are stuck contacting olympus. regardless of warranty service we will have no pictures from this trip.
