Summary: Ihad a wp Olympus and lost it in a river. I thought I got the same kind and was sadly mistaken. Poor picture quality. I have to change the setting over and over again to get a decent clear picture with true color. I will try a higher quality Olympus due to the reliability of not leaking. I have dropped the x-560 several times and taken it in water swimming with no problem. But I would like more crisp pictures. not pictures with a yellowish hue.
Summary: Photos are so blurry, people 10 feet away are totally unrecognizable. They are also so over exposed, you'd never want them even if they were in focus. I expect better pictures from a disposable camera. I will NEVER, EVER buy another Olympus camera.
Summary: Sadly this product does not meet with the expectations of its name Mine lasted for 4 shots before failing If you want a red paperweight then I would suggest this camera however should you wish to take photos look elseware
Summary: I bought this camera because I love to snorkel and wanted to share pictures and video of what I've seen. It worked amazing on our first trip but on our second trip some water got in and the camera shut down. I dried it out and somehow it started working again. So before we went away I checked, cleaned and lubed all of the seals but once again the water got in and the camera is done. Don't buy this product.
Summary: It pays to be educated and look at the specs before you buy a camera. I picked this turd based on the fact that it is waterproof, 10mp, 3x Optical, has image stabilization, and only $49 at Wal-mart. Here is everything wrong with it: NOISE This camera has the nosiest sensor I've ever used, and that includes bottom of the line Sanyo's. Laughably the camera gives the option of selecting up to 1600 ISO when 100 is barely acceptable for 4x6 prints.
Summary: i have had numerous digital cameras over the past 10 years. My last 3 being Olympus, which I've always had luck with...until I got this camera. I have always had cameras that I keep on the Auto flash/focus setting and get great pictures. I have had the camera for 6 months and cannot figure out how to get good, quality pictures. They are blurry, grainy, or very dark.
Summary: This camera is the worst piece of junk i have ever owned! I really hope you DO NOT to buy this camera!! Every time I take a picture without a flash, the picture turns out SUPER blurry. When you replay a video you took, you can't hear any noise unless you download it to your computer. It is good for underwater, but it also is very blurry, however I haven't tried using the flash underwater because I was to frustrated to even fool around with it.
Summary: This is by far the worst camera i have ever used. Every single shot i have taken is incredibly grainy. The scale of quality goes from 'Kind of Grainy' to 'Oh i think i've seen this magic-eye before!'. I have used some other olympus cameras that were very high quality, but this is simply not one of them. Waterproof or not this camera is not the way to go.
