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: It takes great pictures and easy to use. I have now taken it to Maui 4 times and have gone snorkeling with it multiple times on each trip. I have never had any issues with it. I do make sure to clean it when I get back home with fresh water. The pictures taken underwater are really good is the sun is out. If there is a cloudy sky then the pictures are not as clear. I would purchase this camera again.
Summary: Have had this camera for a couple years now - it's durable (can't begin to tell you how many times I've dropped it) and takes great day time pictures. It's very cool to be able to take pictures underwater in a pool or at the beach. The quality of the pictures greatly decreases in low light, but honestly, it's not meant for that purpose. Get a different camera for that.
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: Received promptly and in excellent condition…a purchase I made after borrowing an Olympus TG-610 for a recent vacation. Love the simplicity and ease of operating, charging, and producing almost-perfect pics. For an amateur photographer, the 5x Wide Optical Zoom helped capture Nature's beauty. The description "Tough" definitely lives up to its name as the camera is able to take a few bumps on land and/or dunks in the ocean without worry!
