Summary: We have had an awful experience with this camera. It worked well for the first few months but the image quality was not as good and crisp as we had hoped. We purchased this mainly for the "Tough" feature and the water resistant qualities.
Summary: Used twice. Second time I had no watertight integrity for my snorkel trip to key largo. Screen fogged and water damage. Breturned camera for refund with no incident. Camera disappointing but refund was no hassle
Summary: I order this camera last week, a spare battery, a waterproof float and a battery charger. I was going on vacation on thursday night.

Summary: I saw a few complaints about the door opening under water when I bought this a little over a year ago but was hoping it wouldn't happen to me. Unfortunately it opened up under water on the first day of swimming with the manatees.

It would work sometimes, in some directions, and change later. Maybe it got salt or sand in there, but I would expect a TOUGH waterproof camera to handle this.
Summary: I used an olympus 790 SW for many years as a park ranger. Used it all over, beat it up, abused it. I would call it ranger proof, which is pretty hard to do. I bought the TG-610 with high expectations. I hate the camera. I used it in New Zealand for 2.5 months and while working in Alaska.
