I would highly recommend this camera as an addition to any traveler’s arsenal.

  • Summary: I purchased this product in preparation for my honeymoon to Jamaica where we knew we would be spending a lot of time by the sand and water. Features - The camera has a lot of similar features you would find on any basic Point and Shoots but the waterproof and shock proof are what stand out. I tested it several times in normal conditions before we left and the picture quality was equal to other non-water proof cameras.

  • Summary: I like it for the water and beach and ruggedness but am not too impressed with the pictures. Maybe I just haven't learned how to adjust it yet?

It is ok

Ekaterina Puffini, Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: It is ok. It is VERY slow. It take 6 seconds to boot up and takes another 4 seconds after I take a picture. That is a pain hiking in the mountains - I liked my old olmpus much better. And once it got screwed up and did something horrible to the colors of a whole series of pictures. So I lost 30 mountain photos that I really wanted. But apart from that it works ok and takes pretty good pictures.

Good unit for high volume pics.

Curtis Deck, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: We use the TG 610 for a business and have tried different brands of cameras. This one holds up good for us. We average 1200 pics a day and these will usually last 4 or 5 months before little blurps tell us it's time for a new one. We can submerge these in soapy water (with door closed) with a toothbrush & clean around butttons and it's good to go a few more rounds.Sometimes it changes settings on it's own but all in all it a great little camera.They get dropped and...

  • Summary: To all shopping for water proof cameras...I used this product 5 times a week for 4 months, ..It work well for the most part, I am a kayak guide in the med. sea.

Two years old and still going strong

Eric Wentz, Amazon
13 January 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera from Best Buy and I am happy with this camera. I work on the Delaware River and this camera is perfect for this kind of job. I have taken underwater photos and video and both are achieved with this camera. Suggestions for underwater photo taking are to keep on auto or program which is what I do. Disable the flash because the photo with flash will not come out great at all.

Vast Improvement

Steve, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: This camera is a vast improvement over the Tough 6020. The Tough 610 is the 3rd Olympus Stylus "tough" I've owned. I started with a 720 SW, moved on to a 6020 and now own a 610. The 610 is the best of the lot. First, the turn on time has been brought back to around a second, about the same time as the 720 SW. This is important because I shoot a lot of wild life on the ocean, from a kayak.
