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: 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.
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. I also do snorkeling and mountain bike tours.So this camera has been droped into deepths of the sea hit by kayaks and beat up by mountains and worked well. The only thing I could say bad during this time, was the the it takes pictures slow. I see But once you get use to it..No worries.
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.
Summary: I own a pest control/termite business, and own over 10 of this style of camera--they have more than proven themselves in the worst possible conditions--spiders, cat poop, cobwebbs, it is the RangeRover of cameras-(great photos too)
Summary: Took this out for Tough Mudder event and worked great through 20 obstacles filled with water, mud, etc. Only thing I regret not buying with the camera was a screen protector. Couple of scratches sure to rocks, etc.
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.
