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. Battery life was good, picture quality was good enough that we did not feel the need to purchase any resort taken pictures, and it fit in any pocket.
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! I've tried many cameras like this one and they have all failed.
Summary: This camera is exactly what I was looking for, tough, waterproof, stylish, and just the right amount of features. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because the autofocus can be a little slow sometimes, other than that the camera is exactly as described and has some amazing features built into it from Olympus. Very easy to use underwater and the video quality is top notch.
Summary: Seems to be meeting all of my expectations so far! Its been through every test with the exception of 'freeze proof' and passed them all! Picture quality is great for the price range, videos are of decent quality. Haven't noticed the 'clicking' in the video that some people seem to experience. Hope to update this review after a few months.
Summary: So far so good. I got the refurbished camera. Took it with me for my vacation. On the beach by the ocean, rainy day, foggy weather, and lots of sand. The camera took it very well in all those situations. Pictures turned out excellent. Panoramic mode and video (and photo captures during video rec) functions are fantastic. Highly recommend it. I will post update after 6 months.
Works, but not a great image quality in less than perfect lighting.

Summary: Worked as advertized - used it on a couple of shallow dives and in the waves. However, the image quality leaves a lot to be desired whenever lighting conditions are less than perfect. I do like the ease of switching from video to still shot modes.
Fabulous camera used for Hawaii and pool use! Only downfall - the strap didn't work!!

Summary: Bought this for a trip to Hawaii and it was really good. All of the compartments that open and close have an extra safety lock on it and we took it snorkeling multiple times and it lasted just fine. Now, three months later it still is working normally even though I haven't gotten it went since. I'm happy with how it works and how dependable it is. Oh, I have used it once in the water since.
