Summary: Love it! So we had a trip planned to the Dominican Republic and I wanted to get a good underwater camera. I looked at the TG-850 camera and saw the reviews weren't so hot, then I looked at the older TG-830 and saw that they were very good. I sprung on this camera. This camera is TOUGH!
Excellent picture and video quality for such a small package

Summary: Took this little gem to Mexico, kept it in my shorts pocket the entire time. I went swimming many times, and could pull it out to take pictures and/or video at will. Turns on and is ready to shoot quickly. Excellent picture and video quality for such a small package.
Summary: I consider myself an advanced novice, and normally shoot with a D7000 Nikon. I wanted a portable camera I could take to countries where the bigger camera is not as welcomed, as well as one that I could use in rough areas. The camera has a lot of good potential.
I will say that this camera worked great for what we wanted

Summary: We bought the camera for our trip to Jamaica. we wanted something that could take a beating, go underwater, and was not as expensive as our SLR. I will say that this camera worked great for what we wanted.
Summary: Overall, a really great product. I have to disclose that I am a professional photographer, so if you're expecting professional results - this is not the camera for you. If you want something rugged, waterproof, drop-safe, sand-proof, quick, easy and for taking quality shots on the fly - go for it!
Summary: I've had this camera for over a year and shot thousands of images... I LOVE it!! It is fantastic in low light (indoors)... The low light pics are a little grainy but much better than snapshot quality...
