Get it ONLY if you plan to snorkel or just take underwater pics
18 July 2013
Summary: Not too happy. I am about to return it or sell it if they don't take it back. Nice colors but 90% of the pictures come out blurry or with some strange coloring on the background. I used to have a Canon, but was very delicate. That's why I tried switching to a "tough" camera, but the image quality is a very big difference! =-( Must be really good ONLY for under water pictures.
Summary: I bought this for a trip to Alaska & sent the pictures to Snapfish, they all came out blurry, but look great on a PC, so what is up with that? Also, I wanted to mount the camera to my car & power it with the car adapter, it goes into transfer mode to a PC & won't function, what is up with that? The battery is a joke if you want to do video, you can't shut off the display which sucks up all of the power.
Excerpt: This camera is okayish but don´t expect that much. IQ at ISO100 and 200 is good, above a bit too strong NR/smearing. Video quality is so-so, a bit soft and stabilisation distorts the footage. Sound has a bit too much background noise and zooming is audible with strange electronic noises. High-speed videos aren´t that good, too pixelated and duration limited to 20 seconds - not enough for a lot of scenes.
Excerpt: Bueno os voy hablar un poco de la cámara OLympus Tough TG-630, su cuerpo es casi todo de plástico, y cuando hacemos la prueba o que se nos cae sin querer en la nieve o agua, la caja y el interior siempre se queda intacta. Por mi parte veo que la cámara se maneja bien y se adapta muy bien a mis manos.
