Summary: I purchased this camera for our Hawaii vacation where we planned on snorkeling. Pros: The underwater pictures were very good. Camera was easy to use. Lightweight. Cons: It leaked. When I opened it up, the battery had rust marks. The front lens showed moisture. the viewer in rear also showed moisture. As a result, I returned the camera.
Summary: Camera takes nice pics, but after only a few weeks of use it wouldn't turn on all the time. (not so great when I happened to be on vacation at the time!) Sometimes it will turn on ONLY when the door is open (battery compartment)!! Well that's not so good, since you can't use it in water then! I've owned Olympus Tough for a few years now and love them, but am disappointed with this one...just got a lemon I guess.
Summary: Bought this camera for my daughter's birthday. The charger or charging cable doesn't work. Luckily, the camphost where we are campiing used his smart phone charger and cable to charge the camera. I am disappointed with the hassle of either contacting Olypus for a replacement or returning the whole camera to Amazon. I don't know yet if the charger and cable not working is a sign that camera is faulty but it appears so far to be in working order.
Summary: We bought this for a first time trip to Maui. Snorkling was going to be a big part of it. I knew it was not going to take excellent photos. But the battery life is so poor it died after 1 hour. The image quality was not bad. In fact it was as expected. The reason for the low rating is due to the exceptionally poor battery life.
Summary: I bought this for a snorkeling trip, but I was curious about the negative reviews that said it performed poorly out of the water. I think it does a pretty good job for the price. I've added some "customer images" to the product page from a trip to the zoo, as well as a couple macro test shots. Nearly all the zoo photos were taken at maximum zoom, which is limited on this camera due to the waterproof, internal lens design.
Excerpt: at Sears and Amazon. I bought it in preparation for some snorkeling in Maui, were I don't want to risk a better camera near the beach or in the water. After the first battery charge (it lasted for 160 pictures) here are my preliminary conclusion: a) The TG320 may not be as good as my old Nikons III, but with proper care it should be OK in the rain, sand and for snorkeling. The TG320 uses a single seal door to close the SDcard/connector access.
Summary: Length:: 1:46 Mins I bought this camera to use on a holiday with the intention of using it underwater. I have been snorkling for a couple of years and had held off buying a underwater due to the price of digital cameras and the poor quality of single use 35mm disposable cameras. I saw this on Amazon for £77 (from a company called n technologies) and despite its mixed reviews I decided to take the plunge at that price.
