Summary: I have had this camera for almost three years now. It has been on 2 cruises, many trips to the lake/pool, and most recently the birth of my first child. This camera has held up very well. My biggest complaint is the pictures are not always the most clear.
The screen can crack easily, but it definitely works under water

Summary: The screen can crack easily, but it definitely works under water. Took mine to some whale shark dives; very pleased. My pictures were definitely better than the rentals the resort offered for underwater photography.
Decent to good waterproof camera for images noticeably better than a camerphone in its regular setting.

Summary: I purchased this for snorkeling in the ocean. Did not have a problem with this at all. I did not go more than 5 feet deep though. So cannot say if it actually functions at the depth suggested. I never used the "underwater" functions but the images still came out satisfactory.
Crapped out after the third use: mysteriously repaired itself

Summary: I used it twice in a pool, and once or twice on dry land. I was very careful about following the instructions for use and drying it out. The next time I turned it on, it would only power on for a second or two, then power itself off. Olympus sent me a replacement battery, but that didn't help.
Summary: Have to say I was very pleased with this purchase. It was kinda hard to find the right sd card that was "recommended" and when tried to get ahold of Olympus to get questions answered and appropriate sd card - was put on hold forever and never did get to talk to anyone.
