Summary: The waterproof Olympus Tough TG-610 is the worst camera I have used in 30+ years of amateur photography. I have used Minolta, Nikon, Sony, and many Canons, but this Olympus 610 has such poor ergonomics, controls, and lack of intuitive menus compared to my previous cameras. This is my sixth digital camera I have owned since 1999.
Pros: 5x optical zoom, waterproof, seems solid, 3" screen (though I would have liked a smaller screen if they made the joystick a little bigger.....the screen crowds out the tiny, finicky joystick)
Cons: Horrible ergonomics, Terrible position of controls, Very jerky zoom control, 4 position joystick is way too small and finicky., Autofocus in video mode doesn't lock, and goes blurry every 20 seconds (this occurs when filming at distances from 20 yds to 100 yds), No paper manual ($300 camera!!!! deserves a manual), Battery life is poor, Battery only recharges while in the camera, REC record button is positioned in a way that it is prone to accidental recording.
