... my beach vacation and the camera seemed to work great on land

michelle rees, Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: This is day one of my beach vacation and the camera seemed to work great on land. The problem came when I stepped into the ocean to take pictures of my kids and the first wave that knocked me off my feet also knocked the camera out of my hand.

  • Summary: My wife and I got this camera for some snorkeling photos on our honeymoon. It took great photos. However, after one day of use the camera's different functions ceased to work. We could no long take video or review our photographs. It would still take photos above and below water.

How does this happen?

Andrew N Booher, Amazon
8 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm not one to usually have anything negative to say, but add me to the list of those experiencing button issues on first time use. I purchased this product to replace another Olympus WP camera that gave good service for two years, and then one side of the zoom button quit functioning.

Disappointment!

Foremore, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: We needed a waterproof camera for a trip to the Galapagos. After doing some research we decided to go with the new TG-850. It took great pictures until on day 2 we took it in the water. Despite following all the instructions the camera evidently leaked and the electronics went haywire.

5th day all buttons except power & shutter stopped working properly

Ken "Ken", Amazon
26 May 2014
  • Summary: Same problem many others seem to be having. Sometimes none of the buttons work. Sometimes it will act as if you clicked one button or turned the dial when you were clicking a different button. It took nice photos and video while it lasted. The procedure for opening it after being in water is a pain.

  • Summary: Very nice concept with the screen. We are in Egypt right now. Camera went out of order after first snorkeling. It seems to be the buttons. The battery compartment is dry. Camera was still working (No zoom, no menus, but on /off ok andalso taking pictures).

2nd defective camera, not going to try for a 3rd

Lynn Zukley, Amazon
11 May 2014
  • Summary: So the first camera had a bad LCD screen right out of the box and I figured, hey it happens right? It was all dancing bars and white noise. When the replacement came, I took some pictures with it, learned the functions, and was liking it a lot. It takes great pictures!

  • Summary: I bought this for trip to Hawaii for snorkeling photos. First time out all the buttons stopped working except power and shutter- same as the other review here. The camera was only 2 feet under water. When I opened the battery compartment, I found a drop of water.
