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.
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 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: 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.
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.
