Decent camera built tough

jim, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: The camera is decent with no technical problems. I give it only three stars because I don't get as crisp pictures as I did over the digital camera that I just replaced. I believe the problem is that the camera can't handle much movement when taking the picture, even the slightest will make it a little fuzzy. Overall all it is a very sturdy camera and great for the beach.

It takes a picture

Noah's Ark, Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: The main things about this product are that it takes the picture and video records. PROS: Waterproof, drop proof and a semi rugged style. Review button Video record button CON: Does not have a lens cover (The glass might get scratched up) like the older Olympus cameras. The modes - Camera will reset your settings when you turn it off. I don't prefer reconfiguring my settings every single time. Uses a lot of battery.

Get it ONLY if you plan to snorkel or just take underwater pics

  • 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.

cmos not all it's cracked up to be

Jim Ogre, Amazon

  • Summary: overall the camera performs as expected, I have taken it on a few water trips, however the auto focus function does not work well. I found myself taking several pictures of the same thing hoping that one of them would turn out in focus.

User Review

Lupti, DP Review
12 April 2013
  • 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.

it could be better.

Karl Grosvenor, Amazon

  • Summary: Before buying this camera I looked at and read about many others from different makes and they were things I like about most of them and things I didn't no camera gives you everything,what I like about this is you can charge it up without removing the battery either using a USB lead to a computer or a mains tiny mains adaptor that works with different voltages when traveling and it also comes with a two pin and UK plug,most other makes require a bulky battery charger...

  • Summary: Gut, dass ich die Kamera nicht neu für über 200 Euro gekauft habe. Der einzige echte Pluspunkt an der Kamera ist, dass sie staub- und wasserdicht und stoßfest ist. Da sich meine kleine Sony mit ausfahrbarem Objektiv wegen ein paar Sandkörnern vorzeitig verabschiedet hat, ist die Olympus TG-630 meine Antwort darauf. Die Bilder werden zumindest schnell(!) fokussiert, geschossen und gespeichert. Leider werden Details ziemlich verwaschen.

Für den Zweck ok - aber mäßige Bildqualität

diebonis "die 2 bonis", Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: Die Kamera erfüllt ihren Zweck - den ersten Test ob sie Wasserdicht ist hat sie bestanden. Allerdings ist die Bildqualität bescheiden. Wenn man allerdings davon ausgeht, dass man damit Bilder am Strand, unter Wasser oder unter schwierigen klimatischen Bedingungen macht - dabei nicht auf das Detail achtet - dann ist sie ok.
