Not what I was expencting froma a waterproof dust proof shockproof camera....
12 February 2014
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...
Summary: FIRST TIME USING THIS CAMERA UNDERWATER AND IT LEAKED. I TRIPLE CHECKED TO MAKE SURE IT WAS IN THE 'LOCKED' POSITION AND SAFE TO USE UNDERWATER. I WENT IN NO MORE THAN 3 FEET OF WATER AND IT LEAKED WATER INTO THE BATTERY AND SD CARD COMPARTMENT. ALSO, THE PICTURE QUALITY IS NONE TOO GOOD EITHER
Summary: I bought this item last January, but after few months of using it, now is not working. I just used few times, and before using it on the water I always checked the camera to be sure that was sealed. Now I want to contact the seller (Amazon) and I cannot because there is no any way to do it.
Summary: This camera took decent pictures in and out of the swimming pool for a few times. Then I took it in the ocean and it leaked. Sent it in to Olympus and was replaced with a new one. First time in the pool this one leaked. I have just sent the second one in. Quite a disappointment.
Summary: I can't even begin to explain how much I dislike this camera. I bought it to take with me hiking. The focus is absolutely the worst I have ever seen on a camera. Most of the pictures are washed out and look like they are out of the 1970's.
Excerpt: I was very impressed with this camera when I bought it 5 months ago, and I took 1500 pictures with it before I took it snorkeling. On the first day I took it no more than 3 feet under water and only pressed the ON/Off button and the shutter button and all was OK.
Summary: Camera worked great until we used it under water. I was snorkeling (2-3 ft under water) when the camera broke. The power button just kept flashing and nothing would happen. I did take about 10 pictures before it broke, which were pretty descent quality, but nonetheless it still broke.
Summary: I've owned two of these cameras and each one has been destroyed by water seeping into the internal compartment. It has been such a disappointment on both occasions as I was on vacation and left without a camera for the remainder of it.
Summary: I bought this "waterproof" camera from my Hawaii vacation. I used it for snorkeling for two days. On the first day, the fully charged battery last nearly 30 minutes. The next time around, the camera took a few pictures and stopped working after a few minutes.
Summary: Bought this camera for snorkeling in St John. I was meticulous about following instructions and rinsing in clear water etc. It failed on the 3rd day! Water had seeped into the battery compartment! Very disappointing purchase! I shall see how good a warranty it has when I get home
