Defective Product

Trent Davenport, Amazon
20 April 2014
  • Summary: It worked fine for two months, then one day I went to turn it on and it would not power on with a fully charged battery. I thought maybe the battery was defective so I purchased another battery with a wall charger. Still would not power on. I called Olympus and they said it was covered under warranty. I sent everything in, including my receipt which proved when it was purchased.

Not so Tough or shockproof

mom of 4, Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: Length:: 0:05 Mins I only had the camera for 3 months and my 9 year old dropped it from 3' to the floor. The silver piece around the lens is PLASTIC and cracked, then fell off. It's not chrome or metal. Now that I really am looking at the whole camera after that happen... it has a lot of plastic parts on it. Right on the camera states Tough, Shockproof to 7ft, and Waterproof. Are they kidding me!!!! This camera is no way Tough and Shockproof.

  • Summary: When set on auto, as a point and shoot camera, you would think the camera would pick up on the environment you are shooting in.

Immediately Returned

Quackers "Quackers", Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I took a chance after reading the reviews and seeing multiple comments about a clicking sound while recording video. I tried it out right away and sure enough I had clicking in the playback. If you don't use video you may like the camera.

Bad Photos and no waterproof.

Boris, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: The photos are not good because the lens are too small. You need much light for a good photo. No good definition in the photo. Much noise. The camera is very very heavy for a compact camera. If you use under the water. Some of water is introduced inside the camera. Only with 1 ft of water. And after that, the lens fogs, and you cant keep taking photos. Bad bad. The panoramic function are a s*** in this camera. The LCD screen are too dark.

  • Summary: Bad bad image quality. Completely grainy, even under sunshine. Waste of money. Yes, it does have some cool tools, but what's te point if the image is poor? Very disapointed.

Poor at best

Seemore, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I must say I have owned on of these before. It worked well till it took on water. I decided it could be user error and purchased a newer version. I have used ( not even myself ) to charge and verify it worked. It has not since, and it has been registered. Amazon determined it was not returnable, but it was purchased as a Christmas gift. Purchased on Sept. 27, and dead before Christmas eve. The manufacturer stated they would sent a new battery which they haven't.

  • Summary: The second, smaller hatch cover has latches on it that will open if inside a pocket with other items, thus letting water in and rendering the camera useless.

Dead on arrival

Matthew H., Newegg
4 December 2013
  • Summary: Thought I'd purchase one of these for myself after using a black one at work for a year or so. That one works great, but this red one I bought is just terrible, a lemon. Preparing to return it now.
  • Pros: The black one I have at work works wonderfully.
  • Cons: Upon opening and preparing for test photos, initial use gave the following:
