I gotta say I'm very happy how durable this camera is
2 December 2014
Summary: I gotta say I'm very happy how durable this camera is. I have had it for over a year. My company uses it every night to take photos at job sites. We work cleaning restaurants and the crew is up on the roof and in the kitchen around water and grease. They have to take before and after photos so the camera is in use all night. I get the camera at the end of the week to take the photos off. It's still going strong (I have two of them for both crews).
Summary: This is the perfect size camera to have around, easy to carry, very lightweight. I keep it on the kitchen counter and grab it all the time to snap pictures in the back yard. The only down side is not having a viewfinder but you really cannot find that anymore with cameras under $200. I hope the companies work on the screen and being able to see in bright sunlight.
Summary: This camera was great, took beautiful pictures underwater. This was my first underwater camera. When it came, I thought perhaps they sent me the wrong item. It did not look like what I pictured. It looked like a normal camera. It wasn't bulky, didn't have a plastic protection. The year I purchased the camera I took it to the pool, the beach and to Dourney park in PA. It took quite the beating from my kids, we threw it to one another in the pool.
Summary: I have had Olympus Film cameras and they have all been excellent but not this Digital one. The sound quality is poor. Makes a clanking noise which makes the natural sound unusable. Also the word TOUGH is a misnomer. It fell out of my pocket which is about 2 feet and landed on some dirt. Cracked the strobe plastic. Now it is useless underwater. I called Olympus and because it is over a year old they will not repair it.
Summary: I have not used the camera in a hostile environment as yet so cannot comment on the "Tough" part. The rest is great. Videos are very sharp with good sound. The pictures are also up to mark for the camera specifications. Very satisfied with my purchase. Observation: Didn't give it 5 stars because one of its main features is being "Tough" and like I said I really haven`t dunked it in the pool yet.

Summary: Bought this camera to have it on the pocket while traveling, the idea was to have decent quality pictures with a lot of reliability (Not having to worrie about water/dust or drops) The reality is, although shockproof/waterproof this camera has: Not good quality pictures (I almost could say bad quality) and needs a Special cable for charging it. The worse of all was that it stopped working just a couple of days after warranty expired...
