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. On the second day I tried to change the camera setting about three feet under water to enable the underwater mode and the flask. That is when TG320 froze up and the LCD went dark. Salt water leak!
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. The first time I took it snorkeling and water seeped in and destroyed it and the second time it was in the water for about 2 seconds until the water seeped in.
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. I initially thought that maybe the battery was not fully charged. I later discovered that water had entered the battery/SD card section and ruined the battery.
Summary: After suffering multiple lens jams, I bought this as an alternative to a point and shoot with an extending lens. The waterproof/shockproof was a bonus for me, as I've got two kids (one lens jam was a result of a child dropping a camera) and we spend a lot of time at the pool in the summer.
Summary: I rarely write reviews, but this camera simply does not live up to its performance claims, and potential buyers need to know of my experience. I bought a TG-320 on Amazon for a white water rafting trip down the Grand Canyon, and shot dozens of outdoor action pictures with it. Once I got home I was quite dismayed that the image color and quality was noticably lacking in comparision to photos taken by my Olympus VR-330 14MP camera (used as a backup for less risky/wet...
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!
Summary: My parents gave my sister and I each a camera for Christmas this past year. The camera works great, and I have had no problems with water. I have taken mine on many wet hikes, and my sister has taken pictures while swimming in a pool. However, both cameras ruin the pictures taken on them. Lines and discolorations mar the pictures, or black areas will cover half the picture.
