good camera, not great

  • Summary: The camera is what you would expect. Drop proof, waterproof and freeze proof. I personally prefer some of the earlier versions of this camera, (a little less complicated to use,) but this one still gets the job done. I turned off the GPS to save battery life. I also purchased a floating strap so you can drop it in the lake or ocean and not worry about losing it. I got a great price and I have purchase many of these cameras over the years.

  • Summary: It has worked out well for my purposes. It takes a good picture of dark places and makes them very clear.

Good camera

  • Summary: I travel for work to most of the 5 continent for work related expeditions. Wanted a camera that could hold up to the conditions/environment. The camera is very rugged and high quality manufacturing. Now it is my go to camera because I do not have to worry about it getting soak. I can jump in and snorkel to a reasonable depth. It can go in my backpack when hunting. There are some things I would change. The zoom is not ample.

Solid camera

  • Summary: Having had two models of the 610 Olympus, a notch below this one, and nothing but trouble with them (each one repaired two times now both out of warranty) the 810 seems better. Autofocus in the HD video mode sucks badly - makes the videos unwatchable as the focus shifts from plane to plane hunting for who knows what. With a 30' depth limit this camera would be suitable for shallow scuba diving while the 610, at 15', is at the edge of snorkeling depths.

Olympus Tough 8010 camera

Vincent, Amazon
21 April 2012
  • Summary: So far so good. I've been using the camera heavily for shallow-water photography on an algal reef. It has remained waterproof through lots of dunkings and takes reasonably good photos. The only problem is that it's nearly impossible to see what you're shooting on the screen in bright sunlight or while trying to set up underwater. The result is that many pictures are taken by "point and pray.

  • Excerpt: The Olympus TG-810 is not going to win any awards for speed in any category but if you want a camera that can take abuse and keep taking pictures then consider this camera. I love the "rugged" look so I bought this tg-810 as a take anywhere and don't worry camera. I've not dunked it underwater but I did take some shots in a downpour and the Oly clicked away without complaint.

  • Excerpt: I am a ferquent bike-race-traveller. I like to use my Bike to cross continents as fast as possible and as intense as possible. Germany - UK 4-days, sevilla-spain - germany 12 days, Miami FL - San Francisco CA 30 days. The Olympus Series was the first camera wich was ready to deal with this conditions- pro: nearly undestructable self-cleaning of the lens works even under the worst conditions usable even with gloves con: picture quality at higher iso gets really bad slow...

  • Summary: This camera served me well so far in the cold (-5 deg Celsius). I'm looking forward to testing it underwater in warmer weather.
