Summary: I've had my Olympus TG-610 since it first came out in 2011, and it's still working just as well as the day I got it. I'm just an amateur photographer (mostly family/friend outings, and going on some pretty off-road adventures with my boyfriend), and would recommend this in a heartbeat to anyone out there who can relate. This is definitely a great family camera.
Summary: I spent all of last summer taking mine to the pool, lake, river, and just playing with my son in the backyard sprinkler without any problems. This summer I got the chance to take it to the beach, I was a little worried it wouldn't hold up to the salt water, but it seems to have come through just fine, and I got tons of great pictures and videos while playing in the surf and swimming out to sand bars.
Summary: I've actually had this camera for 2 years. Intuitive interface; auto worked great. I go caving, and it worked great there too with crystal clear pictures. In the case of fog from so many warm bodies breathing, I had to manually increase the iso, but auto usually worked just fine. I dropped it many, many times. In Hawaii, I dropped it 5 ft. onto lava rock. Dented in the front, but it just kept on working. It finally died in Jamaica.
Summary: This little camera does everything well. From still photos to zoom features to video, this camera has exceeded expectations. Plus, it's waterproof enough for my camping, fishing, hunting, and biking trips. Great value.
Summary: Great camera at this price. the battery holds up for hours and it passes the drop test on a regular basis. we use these to photograph automotive inspections so they are out in the weather and getting abused every day. the things to be aware of are the USB interface cord wears out and gets intermittent and they are not cheap to replace and keep the shutter window cover clean to prevent problems with it sticking. I tried the TG-320 and it is not even close to the quality.
