Summary: i bought this camera for a trip to mexico. it took amazing pictures, even underwater. it was not until after i got back home that when i used it again, i noticed a fog on the lens. i never had it in water after my trip. all of my trip pictures turned out fantastic though.
Summary: Bought this for my grandson, who was going to Canada with a group for 10 days. He was 12. He promptly lost the charger so was unable to use it for most of the trip. The picture quality is good;however, am I the only one that expects an owner's manual in the box instead of a link to download and...
Summary: I bought this camera to take on vacation to Jamaica two weeks ago. The picture quality is surprisingly nice, even underwater it's crystal clear. Besides that, it took about 30 seconds to get the camera to turn on each time I wanted to use it, which is a pain and causes a lot of missed picture...
Summary: UPDATE 9/29/12: Olympus did replace the camera. I notice the new one delivers a much firmer "click" when closed and latched, so perhaps the hinge was loose on the first one. The replacement camera also came with a sheet of specific tips for keeping it watertight (oddly, not from Olympus themselves,...
Summary: I just bought the camera about a week ago. The screen has a dashed line near the bottom. I cant seem to to get rid of it. It works fine otherwise. The battery life seems quite short. I can only take about 75 pictures before it is out.
Good for "tough" situations but not the best all-around

Summary: I received this camera as a gift after we went rafting in the Grand Canyon and a fellow rafter had the same camera. We backpack and kayak frequently and this is a great camera to take along, being resistant to most dirt and water. The downside of the camera is the quality of photos.
Summary: I bought this camera for two specific reasons. First, I have owned an Olympus FE-280 for a long time and taken well over 50,000 pictures with it. Until recently, I've never had a problem with that camera, and even now it's still excellent 90% of the time.
Summary: I bought this camera for use outdoors and under rugged conditions. The camera is light weight and takes excellent sharp photos outdoors. The zoom feature leaves a little to be desired. I am having a little bit of a problem taking photos at night where there is a light in the background.
Summary: Have had this for a while and took it on holiday. The high pixels are good, but night use is limited and no zoom when videoing.There is limited array of picture useful settings. Think i'll go back to a Samsung....It tough though
Excerpt: I saw this camera in the store and I said to my mum "this is the one. I want that one. It's perfect". As a teenager I go out to parties and to the beach. I'm sure those are two main places that cameras get broken. MINE WONT THOUGH!
Pros: Great settings, perfect for teenagers because it is so durable .
