It Won't Turn On!

Mike S., Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: I have owned the TG0830 for 15+ months, and it will no longer turn on. This happened in mid-July, then it came back to life. I used it for a couple days, then bam, no go. The battery was not dead. It just stopped being able to come alive.... Very disappointing after 15 months.

Not worth the money

MH, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • Summary: This camera has a lot of cool features and I really wanted to love it but I didn't. Every picture I took came out grainy- indoor and outdoor. I tried all the different settings but nothing worked.

Battery quality virtually useless need to now purchase new one for my trip

cowa.nz2014, Ebay
9 July 2014
  • Summary: I was very disappointed with this purchase after I purchased a delux package with a Olympus tough which seemed like a good deal. Included in the price was an extra battery which was going to be great for me as I am about to go on a 12 day wilderness experience I went to charge up the extra battery...

Not good for videos

Louise L.C., Amazon
15 April 2014
  • Summary: I can't give this camera a good rating because it makes a clicking sound when you playback videos. If you listen you can hear the sound inside the camera when it is recording. It must be located right next to the mic because it is amplified on playback.

Not impressed

Bradley A Spaugh, Amazon
6 April 2014
  • Summary: The form factor and ruggedness are great but the photos are lousy. I used to have a cannon power shot that took awesome shots but it was not waterproof and it got wet after 5 years of use and failed. I thought this would be a great replacement but it fails miserably in the photo quality department.

Not as good as other Tough models

me, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I ended up returning this camera. The waterproof latches did not close securely and were difficult to operate. It is also a large and clunky camera. I was much happier with my previous model, the Stylus Tough 6020. The 6020 had better latches, was smaller, and looked like a regular camera.

OK for Video but not pictures

Nabil A., Newegg
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Not worth the $$$. You can use it as a disposal camera for a holiday to take videos.
  • Pros: Under water video was OK for the first few months.
  • Cons: Does not stay waterproof for a long time. Pictures were hit and miss. Mostly fuzzy, never in focus.

Gute Bildqualität, schlechte Videofunktion

Chrimi, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: Für den Outdoor-Einsatz und Reisen super Kamera. Die Bildqualität ist gut. Großes Manko: Es wird in der Produktbeschreibung eine HD-Videoaufnahmefunktion beworben, leider aber nicht gesagt, dass hier fortlaufend laute, störende Autofokussierungsgeräusche der Kamera mit aufgenommen werden.

Charly, Amazon

  • Summary: Was soll ich großartig über die Kamera schreiben, meine war nach dem ersten Tauchgang nicht mehr zu gebrauchen. Hinter der Glasscheibe des Display waren Wasserschlieren zu sehen und das Objektiv war innen beschlagen.
