Not worth the money

law2003, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought thus camera for the indestructible part and the advertised ability to take low light pictures but I have compromised photo quality as a result. I have a little canon that I have been using forever that takes perfectly crisp photos every time, but sometimes integer flash would go off when it shouldn't making the lighting appear strange. So I bought this one.

Failed after 3 days

  • Summary: In summary, I’m disappointed with my Olympus TG-2. Bought the camera for a vacation trip. Tested it in a pool before going and worked great; no leaks, no problems. After 3 days on vacation the camera failed. Wouldn’t take pictures. The doors didn’t leak. It just wouldn’t turn on to take pictures. I could get the GPS tracking to work and used it for that the rest of the trip. During the first 3 days I went snorkeling once or twice a day to depths of about 10 feet.

Major unacceptable flaw

AB, Amazon

  • Summary: As others have commented there is a very annoying noise when recording video. I knew this when buying the camera thinking that it couldn't possibly be that bad. Well, I was wrong. The noise is horrible and overpowers anything you are video recording. It is so bad I honestly don't know why Olympus would ship this half baked product, especially considering that it sounds like the previous years model had the same issue.

  • Summary: I have read many review and so one about waterproof camers - before I bought TG2. I spent 215p and what a got? My SGS4 takes probably better pictures than TG2 !!! I have tested this camera with diffrent settings and aperatures. Almost all pictures are not sharp !! Almost all pictures are overexposed - or each white. I have SLR camera and proper photograhpic bakground. This camera is just really bad.

User Review

Jan Charvát, megapixel.cz

  • Excerpt: Nekupujte foťáky Olympus! Je to další z elektronických zařízení, jehož výrobci se rozhodli, že propojit s počítačem a nabít půjde pouze jejich orginálním kabelem, aby vydělali další mizerný stříbrný. Takže namísto klasické micro USB musíte na dovolenou, do práce, prostě kamkoli si jejich foťák vzít, tahat další, totálně zbytečný originální kabel. Netřeba říkat, že v jejich shopu stojí 700 korun!

verschmierte Bilder

Friedrich Volkmann "fkv1971", Amazon

  • Summary: Weil schon viel über dieses Modell geschrieben wurde, beschränke ich mich auf die für mich wesentlichen Punkte. Die Kamera macht in gutem Tageslicht ganz brauchbare Bilder. Für den Zweck sind kleinere, leichtere, billigere Kameras aber besser geeignet. Ich habe mir die TG-2 hauptsächlich für Höhlen zugelegt, weil ich dort eine Kamera brauche, in die kein Staub eindringt. Diese Anforderung wird erfüllt.

qualità realizzativa della lente bassa

A.B., amazon.it

  • Summary: La ho cambiata 2 volte e alla terza è andata bene. La macchine difettose presentavano delle macchie in vari punti delle foto (soprattutto su sfondi scuri uniformi) dovute probabilmente a impurità nella lente. Per fortuna servizio Amazon sempre al top.

Gruselige Bildqualität

Tobias Philipp "tphilipp6", Amazon
3 December 2013
  • Summary: Vorab: Ich habe relativ viele Kameras in meinem Sortiment - Canon S95, Sony RX100, Lumix TZ8, Lumix FZ38, Lumix GF3, Lumix G3, Lumix G5. Die TG-2 liefert im direkten Vergelich mit Abstand die schlechteste Bildqualität aller meiner Kameras. Insbesondere das Objektiv ist unterdurchschnittlich. Es bietet zwar Blende f2.0, aber die Vignettierung (Randabschattungen) und die Randschärfe ist bei Offenblende miserabel.

Dommage...

Pierre Olivier Vignal "Mr. PO", Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Après grosse hésitation entre le Canon S110 et celui la (pas du tout pareil je sais mais mon choix se portait sur un apn avec une bonne image et qui ait un caisson étanche, celui la avait l'air bien d'apres les critiques donc...), j'ai opté pour le TG2 avec le caisson. Tres mauvaise qualité sous l'eau: image bleue, focus tres mauvais, lent, photos troubles... Le zoom est tellement bruyant que lors de vidéo que l'on entend meme plus le reste.
